As the Gangwon honorary celebrity ambassador to the Philippines, host and comedian Ryan Bang has promised to take care of the Philippine representatives should any be sent to join the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
“Magdala ako ng bowtie para ako ‘yung waiter niya, magdala ako jacket para sa kanya kung sinuman makapasok, ‘yan,” he quipped in an interview with PUSH.
Gangwon province will host the Winter Olympics and the “It’s Showtime” host hopes many Filipinos will visit Korea for the event.
“This year ia-award ako ng presidente ng Korea, siya mismo nagbigay sa akin ng honorary ambassador ng Winter Olympics at saka honorary ambassador ng Gangwon province sa Korea. So talagang blessing sa akin ‘yan this year,” Ryan said.
Aside from this great honor and blessing, Ryan was also part of three films in the past year: Cathy Garcia-Molina’s “My Ex and Whys” and “Seven Sundays” and Giselle Andres’ “Loving In Tandem.” The host shared in his interview that he considered working with Direk Cathy a great blessing as well.
“Siya talaga ang magaling kaya binibigyan niya ako ng pagkakataon na may linya or mga chance sa movie so talagang isa 'yung 'My Ex and Whys' yung isa sa malalaking blessing ko,” he said.
