Ken Chan Happy That He Finally Got Out Of The Shadow Of 'Destiny Rose' & Happy With The Positive Feedback For His First Mainstream Film, 'This Time I'll Be Sweeter'

KEN CHAN is elated that, finally, he has come out of the shadow of “Destiny Rose”, the hit GMA drama that ran for several months where he played the role of a transgender very convincingly. “For a while, natakot talaga akong baka yun na lang ang maalala sa akin ng mga tao kasi even after the show, people call me Destiny Rose when they see me in public,” he says. “Pero mabuti na lang na dumating nga ang ‘Meant to Be’, where I played Yuan Lee, at ngayon naman, heto may mainstream movie na ako with Barbie Forteza, ‘This Time I’ll Be Sweeter’, at dito na ngayon naka-focus ang mga tao. Sa wakas, nabura na rin sa isip nilang naging babae ako noong araw.”

He’s very thankful to Regal Entertainment and to Direk Joel Lamangan for “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter” that opens in theatres this Wednesday. “Before, indie film lang ang nagawa ko kaya first I’m so happy to star in my first mainstream film na tiyak na magugustuhan ng lahat ng mahilig sa romantic films. When it was premiered at SM Megamall, very positive ang response ng mga tao at feel good romance daw talaga ito.”



In the story, he plays Tristan, a flippant guy who broke the heart of Barbie as Erica, not once but twice. Won’t he appear antipatiko in the eyes of the viewers for doing this? “Naisip ko rin yun, baka maging kontrabida ang dating ko, pero hindi naman. Kasi, the way the script is written, you’d understand Tristan na hindi naman siya naiiba sa ibang guys na hindi agad makapag-decide about their lovelife. Eventually, magsisisi naman siya and he’ll do everything to win back Barbie’s heart for the third time. Kaya nga nangako siya, as can be seen in the movie’s title, na ‘This Time I’ll Be Sweeter’.”

Ken is a recording artist who has an album with PolyEast Records so he himself recorded the theme song of ‘This Time I’ll Be Sweeter’, which was earlier made popular by Angela Bofill.
