David Licauco on the 'Great Wall': 'Ok lang kahit sino i-date ko as long as I'm happy'

The "Great Wall" has never gotten in the way of David Licauco's love life.

The Filipino-Chinese heartthrob shared this during an online mediacon on Wednesday, when he was asked if he was familiar with the term used to describe a situation wherein traditional parents prefer partners who are Chinese/of Chinese-descent for their children.

"Yes, I mean I'm familiar with that, kasi 'yung mga friends ko meron silang 'Great Wall' -- 'yun 'yung mga Chinese families na medyo traditional, nagsi-stick pa rin siya sa tradition na 'yon," he told GMA News Online.

"But, luckily with me naman, with my family, they don't practice that," he added.

[Yes, I'm familiar with the term. I have friends from traditional Chinese families who have the so-called 'Great Wall' and stick to tradition. Luckily with me, my family doesn't practice that.]

David said his parents don't mind who he dates, as long as that someone supports him, makes him happy, and takes good care of him.

"Wala, okay lang kahit sino i-date ko, as long as I'm happy," he said.

"And I think, my parents want someone who will take care of me and push me and support me in everything that I do. And for me, that's also what I want," he added in a mix of Filipino and English.

David had told last year that he was dating a non-showbiz Chinese girl, but said he was not necessarily disallowed from dating someone non-Chinese.

Recently, the Chinito Hearthrob was linked to Asia's Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose who played his love interest in the GMA rom-com "Heartful Cafe," which aired its final episode last month.

The actor, model and entrepreneur renewed his contract with GMA Network on Wednesday, July 7. — LA, GMA News
