Ambassadress of Korean tourism to the Philippines Jessy Mendiola returns for another Korean adventure, this time, to explore the beautiful Jeju island this Sunday (June 15) in “Matanglawin.”
Watch Jessy go around this famous tourist spot named as one of the Seven Wonders of Nature in 2011 together with an unexpected visitor— Colombian friend and rumored suitor Sebastian Gasca.
Jessy earlier revealed that Sebastian, a 19-year-old traveller and Colombian university student she met in Boracay last May, went all the way to Jeju Island in Korea just to see her. What Sebastian thought would be a brief meet up with Jessy then turned into something else as he was spontaneously casted to be part of the show and have the rare opportunity to be seen on Philippine television.
“Since he went all the way to Jeju island, we decided to include him in our entourage so that he can also go around the island. Everything was running as planned when suddenly, the production team asked him to go on cam and be part of the shoot. I was surprised myself, but I guess Sebastian was just so endearing and nice to everyone that even the staff instantly felt very comfortable with him,” Jessy explained.
Watch the two bond in the majestic Cheonjiyon falls, where luck on career or love can be prayed for.
The episode also features the the Alive Museum, where artworks seemingly comes alive, and the Teddy Bear museum, where adorable teddy bears in all shapes and sizes can be seen.
From popular spots, Jessy also try out popular dishes and goes on a food trip eating bibimbap, bulgogi, and the classic samgyeopsal.
