Jake Cuenca currently has his hands full.

Aside from being part of “Ang Probinsyano,” he will soon start taping “Because You Love Me,” a television series also starring Yen Santos and Gerald Anderson.

He, however, denied that his busy work schedule is the reason why his love life has to temporarily take the backseat.

“No way. Kayang-kaya yan [pagsabayin]. Actually, love inspires you to be the best that you can be,” he said. “Siguro nandoon ako sa proseso na minamahal ko ulit ang sarili ko. Bago ako magmahal ulit, kailangan mahalin ko muna ang sarili ko.”

Last month, Cuenca and his American girlfriend Sara Grace Kelly decided to call it quits. Despite this, the actor considers Kelly as “the one” for him.

“I have to say my love life is a bit down. But I’m happy. Ako naman, like with my ex, Sara, I’m really happy for her. Everything she’s accomplishing, I’m always here to support her. If she needs me, I’m there. I’ll help her out,” he said.

Although Kelly remains in his heart, Cuenca thinks it’s time for him to focus on his blessings for now.

“I think now, it’s time to work. Sobrang blessed ako to be doing all this work. Sobrang blessed ako na tuloy-tuloy ang projects na binibigay sa akin at iba-ibang oportunidad ang ibinibigay sa akin. I’m just going to be thankful for what I have and put in a very good performance para matuwa ang mga tao,” he said.

Cuenca went on to say that he will do his best in portraying his role in “Because You Love Me.”

The new series will be directed by Dan Villegas, the man behind films such as “English Only, Please”, “The Breakup Playlist” and “Walang Forever.”

It promises to be different as it will focus on triathlons, which have been growing in popularity in the country over the past few years.

“I’m supposed to be the number one triathlete of the country. I’m coming from a very rich family na may-ari ng airline, we are in everything, pero yung obsession ko talaga is being a triathlete. Aside from that, yung dynamics namin ni Yen, makikilala ko siya, igu-groom ko siya to be an endorser ng triathlon,” Cuenca shared about his role.

An official synopsis and a premiere date for the series has yet to be revealed.

“Because You Love Me” will also feature Bing Loyzaga, Joel Torre, Helen Gamboa and Tonton Gutierrez, among others.(MNS)
