2013 has been an amazing year for KimXi and for us, their fans. Their teleserye (Ina, Kapatid, Anak) had a phenomenal run, their first movie (Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo) was a certified blockbuster hit, they had lots of new achievements and they gave us more reasons for us to love them. I listed some major stuff that I’m looking forward to and praying for in the coming year. :)
Note: I did not include the more personal ones like my wanting them to get married and stuff like that. As much as I want to. :)) These have more to do with their careers. :) This is in no particular order also.
After the success of Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo, they are set to star in another romantic film under Direk Mae Cruz’ helm. Judging from the scenes and updates we’re getting, this movie looks very promising and I’m sure hoping it will be an even bigger blockbuster than their first. Also, I wish that their characters would be interesting enough to show us a different side of them as individual actors and as a love team.
2. “Box-Office King & Queen” title or “Prince & Princess of RP Movies” title

Nothing seals box-office power tandem than being crowned as ‘Box-Office King & Queen’. Their first big-screen project earned more than 100 M so I believe that with a more powerful film, KimXi can (and will) achieve greater things as film crowd-drawers. If this doesn’t turn into a reality yet, I’m praying for ‘Prince & Princess of RP Movies’ title to be theirs. Or a ‘Most Popular Love Team’ award from PMPC would also be great.
Before the solid Xian fans attack me and accuse me of being biased for only mentioning Kim in this category, I’d like to say that I’m just trying to balance things and have allotted other categories for Xian (concert, 2nd album)
Kim already has ‘Best Actress’ awards under her belt; the one from EdukCircle being the most recent. I was so disappointed when she didn’t win when she got nominated in the recently-concluded ‘Star Awards for TV’. Her performance in IKA was one of her best so it’s a shame that she didn’t bag the title. But, I am hopeful that things will be better next year. With the right projects, she is definitely in it to win it in terms of acting. She can effortlessly shed a tear and make you cry with her. She makes you experience the pain, the sorrow, the joy, the kilig or whatever emotion that she’s feeling. She’s also very versatile and does well in comedy, drama, romance, horror, etc; you name it. I hope more prestigious award-giving bodies would recognize her like FAMAS, Gawad Tanglaw, etc. :)
4. MMK episode
I have longed for this since I started shipping KimXi. It would be interesting for them to portray really challenging roles in a tear-jerking and heartwarming story. This would really help the public recognize that their love team is not only capable of making us kilig and all, but can wow us with their acting chops. Plus, this would be a really good avenue for Xian to prove himself as a dramatic actor.
5. Magazine cover together
Seriously, why hasn’t this happened yet? Their last one together was ages ago (Feb 2012). I am dying to see more pics of these two in a magazine photo shoot setting. Mags like StarStudio would be fine but I would want something more glamorous like Metro/Mega/Preview or something. Kinda like the one Bea and Zanjoe did.
I am really wondering why a lot of brands aren’t utilizing KimXi’s power love team status to their advantage yet. It was great when they did Rejoice but seriously, there are more companies that pop up in my mind who can use some KimXi lovin’. Check out the Mcdo manip (pic above) that Kryzl made. My heart is getting all fluffy (if that makes sense) just thinking about it. They can also endorse Century Tuna, Globe, etc together and I’m sure a lot of people would be thrilled. Hear us out, guys!
7. Major concert for Xian
After Daniel’s and Enrique’s very successful concerts at Araneta, I am more convinced that Xian can also pull this off. I don’t think I need to stress how musically-inclined he is and he also has a very strong fan-base. Given the right packaging, promotional strategy, guests and production quality, this can be a big hit. They can make him do things we’ve never seen before and even entertain us with a little dancing :)). Having Kim as a special guest is a must, of course. Star Events, please make this happen. I super beg you.
Xian has been working really hard on his follow-up album, recording songs and gearing up for its much-awaited release. His first one already went double platinum so it’s no wonder Star Records decided to give him another one. And boy are we glad! :) I am so excited to listen to what he’s been preparing for all of us. More acoustic songs please?
If you haven’t seen this number, you haven’t lived. Lately, photos of KimXi rehearsing for an acoustic duet have been circulating online. I am so excited to watch their performance. I thought people are just going to ignore the potential of KimXi as an acoustic duo. They should push it further by giving them an album full of duets. I have blogged about this idea briefly here If not, at least give us an official recorded duet for a commercial or project theme song. Pretty please?
10. Major romantic-dramedy soap
It was announced earlier that KimXi will indeed have another teleserye. Although there are no official details yet on its specific genre or full cast, Kim mentioned that this will be something new and different. If I had it my way, I want something more romance-centered, more feel-good and more refreshing. I want it to be kinda like ‘Got to Believe’ with a more mature story line. I won’t mind a remake if it they’re going to use a koreannovela as a peg but an original story would be better, I think. No more family dramas loaded with grand cast members. We’ve had enough of that and we’re tired of all its shenanigans. I’m fine with including big veteran actors and giving them ample screen time but I want this show to really focus on the love story of the two leads.
KIMXI on Kris TV (11-25-13) | Fave Moments Part 2 - THE HARANA
This is truly one of the sweetest things ever. Xian serenading Kim on national TV and w/ such a wonderful song.. “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias. I think it has so much meaning in terms of their relationship and Xian’s intentions about Kim, taking care of her and sticking it out with her till eternity. ❤
