Ever since Ken Chan played the role of a transgender in the GMA Network drama series Destiny Rose, people have been leaving negative comments about his sexuality.
But instead of lashing out at the comments, the actor remained positive and took it as a sign that his role really struck the viewers which is why they’re still talking about it.
Last October 28, at the Kapuso Fans Day, he explained that he thinks people just miss Destiny Rose as he feels the same way.
“‘Yung mga gay tweets about sa akin, hindi siya negative sa akin. Nami-miss lang nila si Destiny Rose and ganun din naman ako, miss ko na rin and happy ako sa comments ng tao. Wala namang negative na dating.”
Ken then looked at the bright side as the drama’s effect can still be felt not just in the Philippines, but in Thailand as well.
“Until now si Destiny Rose, namamayagpag dahil napapanood pa rin siya sa bansa sa FOX TV and at the same time, napapanood din siya sa ibang bansa, sa Thailand. I’m so happy that people still recognize and remember Destiny Rose.”
The actor is currently starring in the Kapuso network’s drama family series, My Special Tatay.
