Alden stated that he has just finished shooting a drama and still have several commitments, which means he may need to find a window for that particular dream, which he admitted to be his father's as well.

"My mother's dream was for me to find success in showbiz. My father's dream, on the other hand, is for me to earn a diploma. He always tells me to finish my studies, no matter what," he said.
