In Photos: Does Jessy Mendiola Have A Colombian Suitor?After being linked with fellow Kapamilya talents Matteo Guidicelli, Sam Milby and Jake Cuenca, actress Jessy Mendiola is now being linked to a non-showbiz Colombian man.
But is it true that the actress is being wooed by the foreigner? According to Mendiola, they’re just friends.
Rumors started surfacing earlier that Mendiola has a new suitor, a Colombian man who reportedly even followed her to Jeju, South Korea after the two met in Boracay earlier. The actress, in an interview with Push, did not deny that the guy did see her in Jeju. However, she maintained that she is just friends with the man named Sebastian Gasca.
According to Mendiola, Gasca and her posse crossed paths in Boracay. The funny thing is, she mentioned, was that they accidentally spilled a drink on Gasca. From there, Mendiola said that the guy has become somewhat a close friend. She also admitted that Gasca surprised her in South Korea.
“Siya si Sebastian Gasca, friend ko. Sinurprise niya ako sa Jeju,” she said. However, she added that they are not dating.
What is she doing with the man then? According to the actress, Gasca is fun to be with.
“Ano lang, masaya kasi siyang kasama. Oo napapasaya niya ako, pati mga kasama ko, yung handler ko natuwa sa kanya pati yung mga tao sa paligid,” she said. The actress added that what she finds great in Gasca is that he talks to everyone who’s linked to Mendiola. She also said that going to Jeju after that chance encounter in Boracay shows effort on the man’s part to be closer to her.
Mendiola was in Jeju as she is currently the Korea Tourism Office ambassador. She said in her interview with Push that she loves how the country preserves its culture amid its technologically advanced society. The actress also hinted that she would someday like to act alongside Korean stars in a collaboration. Furthermore, she noted that she did not expect the country to pick her as one of their ambassadors.
Meanwhile, Mendiola said that Gasca mentioned to her that he is travelling around the globe and that his last stop in his current tour will be South Korea. She said she told him that she will also be going to the country because of her role as ambassador but that she did not expect that Gasca would meet her in Jeju.
Admitting that they are continually talking to each other, Mendiola said that she does not know if the Colombian plans to pursue her. The actress did admit, however, that she feels close to Gasca because he is a really nice and open person even though they haven’t known each other for a long time. Mendiola added that he convinced the Colombian to come back to the country and she said that it appears he plans to do so later this year.
Based from her comments to Push, however, it appears that the man has left a good impression on Mendiola. Saying that he has to go back to his country to study because he’s only 19, Mendiola added, “Wala naman kasi yun sa age, I think nasa pag-iisip yun, yung maturity, so nung nakausap ko naman siya mature naman siya.”
She said that she is just happy to have met Gasca and to be communicating with him up to now.
