On September 27, Park Seo Joon arrived in Manila much to the delight of his Filipino fans. The K-drama actor was in the country for a special fun meet organized by local clothing brand Bench, which the actor currently endorses. It was in April 2019 when Bench announced that Seo Joon is one of the newest endorsers of the clothing brand.
The actor, who was the lead star in popular K-dramas like What's Wrong With Secretary Kim and Fight For My Way, published his latest vlog that followed him behind-the-scenes as he took a day off to relax and take in the sights of the Philippine capital.
Seo Joon spent a day in Greenbelt in Makati City as he talked about the weather, his nieces, and holiday destinations like Boracay. Dressed simply in a black pair of shorts and an oversized tee, the actor said, “But since we’re in the Philippines, we can’t just stay in the hotel. We must go visit popular tourist destinations while we’re here.”
While strolling around the luxury mall, the actor said, “When foreigners are in Korea, they often go to places like the City Hall and Gyeongbokgung Palace. We can say we’ve been here when we visit these places.” Seo Joon shared that he has been to Boracay, but has never been to the capital before.
He also talked about buying clothes for his nieces who are aged six and three. Seo Joon shared, “My nieces like whatever presents I give them because they’ve never seen these before. But I wonder how this will change when they go to school and grow up.”
Seo Joon’s vlog also features several clips of the actor digging into some sweets. Similar to a mukbang video, Seo Joon had merienda at The Manila Peninsula where he ate a scone and then after walking some more in Greenbelt, the actor and his entourage cooled off with a large bowl of ice cream.
