In an interview with PEP.PH, Alex Gonzaga admits that her friendship with the Korean comedian Ryan Bang has already ended after Ryan got offended with her "panget" joke.
“Hindi na kami friends. Siyempre kaya nga ako nag-cry sa Team Gonzaga, kasi akala ko talaga friends kami,” she explains. “Gusto ko talagang magkaroon ng barkadang lalaki, pero okay na yun. Lesson learned.”
Alex also said that she already apologized to Ryan over her “bad joke” and the latter seemed to have accepted her apology. According to Alex, things could not have gone worse if Ryan became more open to her since they have constant communication.
“Nagulat lang ako talaga kasi magkausap kami lagi nun eh. So, nagulat ako na dun (sa interview) niya inilabas na may sama pala siya ng loob sa akin,” she says. “Sumama lang ang loob ko, nagkasamaan kami ng loob, pero ngayon, okay. Pero siyempre, hindi na siya the same as before, pero okay na. At least, kahit papaano, hindi na masama ang loob namin sa isa’t isa.”
Alex further reiterates that she has never intended to hurt Ryan’s feelings.
“Kaya nag-sorry din ako sa kanya nun… Pero kasi, alam naman ni Ryan na joke lang naman yun, kasi dyinu-joke namin yun off-cam,”she emphasizes. “Yun nga lang minsan, ako, yung joke namin minsan ng off-cam,dinadala ko ng on-cam. Isa lang ipinapakita ko off-cam and-on cam, so nadala ko dun.”
Nonetheless, the incident taught her an important lesson about friendship.
“Dun sa nangyari sa amin ni Ryan, lesson learned na lang, na don’t get close to someone na ‘di mo pa naman talaga nakakasama for years,” she notes. “Friendship talaga is also earned, yung tiwala sa isa’t isa, yung pagiging kumportable. Hindi ito pinipilit talaga.”
Earlier this year, Ryan confessed having feelings for Alex, but the latter says she only wants to be friends with Ryan.
The “Hawak Kamay” actor recently confirmed being in a relationship with a Korean student studying in FEU.
