ACTOR Joem Bascon believes that he has proven himself in the entertainment business more than being a look-a-like of Piolo Pascual.

"For the past few years siguro napatunayan ko na din na hindi lang akong kamukha ni Piolo," he said.

Joem has couples of television appearances and was also part of a few box office movies.

He admitted that he had a hard time at first because people keep on saying that he was just a clone of Piolo.

"Happy po ako na nakakatrabaho ko na din sya kasi para ngayon natapos na yung comparison sa aming dalawa," he said.

For his part, Piolo said: "Amazed din ako kasi ibang klase sya and lumalaban din sya sa mga eksena."

He added that Joem done a substantial amount of projects and its high time that the people credit him for that.

"I never see him na kamukha ko lang sya kasi unfair naman kasi. Magkaiba kami. Iba si Joem, iba din ako," Piolo said. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
