As his showbiz career continues to soar, Unica Hija star Kelvin Miranda expressed how being in a serious relationship may not be for him at this point in time.
In a virtual conference for his new released single “Sumayaw,” the 23-year-old actor said that “sa totoo lang parang sa estado ng buhay ko ngayon, ang hirap din magpapasok pa kasi okay lang naman yung usap-usap. Natural naman yan nakikipagdate, pero yung talagang intimate na, parang hindi pa masyadong kaya ng sarili ko mismo dahil sa obligations and responsibilities.”
When asked about his perspective in love and life, Kelvin pointed out that “love life” is not always about having a romantic partner, “Everyday naman nag-ggrow, nag-dedevelop araw-araw may panibagong natutuklasan kaya feeling ko healthy naman yun, kasi hindi naman porket sinabing love life is may kaakibat na ibang tao. So, parang love life is self love. Pwede din siya sa kaibigan, sa mga magulang, sa mga kapatid. Parte siya ng love life.”
Having said that, Kelvin is still opening his doors into dating. However, he prefers to be with someone not from showbiz. “Kasi parang pag sa showbiz parang mahirap, kumbaga alam ko na yung nangyayari. Kung magkakaroon man ako, sana gusto ko yung non-showbiz para tahimik lang,” he said.
Being grateful for all the opportunities and projects he received, Kelvin admits that the workload might be too overwhelming to balance his acting and singing career. However, while he has a goal to achieve he enjoys the journey and at the same time finds time for other hobbies such as martial arts, jogging, listening to music, watching movies, and catching up with his friends.
“Sa mga napagdaanan ko talagang nakaka-drain, so kailangan ko parin humanap ng paraan para ma-enjoy ko pa rin mga ginagawa ko at hindi ako magsawa, hindi ulit ako panghinaan ng loob. Kasi once na marating ko nanaman yun, mahirap nanaman bumalik.”
Compared to his previous single “Slow Dance,” which is quite sappy and more sentimental, he describes his new single, “Sumayaw,” as more upbeat where you allow yourself to just go with the flow.
“Sumayaw” is composed by his friend Viktor Sabiniano. While Kelvin is still exploring other genres and styles, he is open to recording songs by other artists and hopes to be able to release songs that will feature his own material.
In the past two years, Kelvin landed lead roles in television series such as The Lost Recipe, Tols, Stories from the Heart: Loving Miss Bridgette, and the ongoing afternoon soap, Unica Hija.
