It's been all over social media lately: Photos from Congresswoman Bai Rihan Mangudadatu Sakaluran of Sultan Kudarat and police lieutenant Al-shadat Hassan Abdurajak's Crash Landing On You-inspired prenup shoot went viral, and for good reason.
As self-proclaimed K-drama addicts, what made the couple choose CLOY as their prenup theme? Well, Jay is from North Zamboanga, "like Captain Ri is from North Korea," while Rihan hails from the south, from "Seoul-tan Kudarat."
To replicate the scenery from the original series, they shot their prenup video in various locations throughout Mindanao. The gorgeous drone shots featuring a mountain ridge were filmed at the newly-discovered La Palmera Mountain Ridge in Columbio, Sultan Kudarat; beach scenes were taken at Glan, Sarangani; additional mountain views were captured at Maasim, Sarangani; the lakeside campfire took place at Lake Sebu, South Cotabato; and the rest were shot in General Santos City.
The couple's traditional engagement ceremony also caught the eye of netizens! Held in a family-owned farm house in Lutayan, the couple's intimate Salangguni—an engagement practice of the people from Mindanao—was a beautiful mix of Salangguni and Turul Tayma, to pay homage to their Muslim culture and its weaving tradition. "She's Maguindanaon and I am a Tausug," Jay explains, "So, parang pinagkaisa namin siya."
Watch our video below and listen to Jay and Rihan share deets about their CLOY-inspired prenup shoot (and video!), and their intimate Tausug wedding that took place three days later.
P.S. Did you know that Rihan is also a princess? She's the granddaughter of Sultan Omar Pax Mangudadatu.
