On the set of My Korean Jagiya, Jinri Park says what she likes about her Filipino co-stars is they're "laid-back… they have time to relax and enjoy life." And she admires her Korean co-workers for their "go, go, go" spirit, "they work really fast."


Twenty years nang naninirahan sa Pilipinas ang buong pamilya ng Korean celebrity na si Jinri Park.

Parehong Koreano ang mga magulang ni Jinri.

Ang ama niya ay isang medical missionary na naging dahilan kaya sila nagawi sa Cebu.

Sabi ni Jinri sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “He came with a mission to give free aid to the Filipinos, spread his charity.”

Nauwi raw ito sa pagtuturo ng kanyang ama ng Physical Therapy.

“That’s why we moved here, we followed him.”

Nag-decide daw ang pamilya niya na rito manirahan dahil, “Filipinos are so nice compared to any other countries.

“They’re so hospitable, they’re always smiling, they never have a sad moment.

“Even though they’re in a bad situation, they always look at the bright side, super positive,
and grabe yung hospitality.”

Ito rin daw impression ng mga kasama niyang Korean actors sa My Korean Jagiya, ang kinabibilangan niyang primetime series sa GMA Network.

Bida rito si Heart Evangelista at ang Korean actor na si Alexander Lee.

Kuwento ni Jinri, “They’ve noticed it, they tell me, ‘Wow, you know Filipinos are really nice, everyone’s so nice here.’

“In Korea daw, sa set, they don’t joke around, they don’t talk, walang tsika.

“But here, they’re always talking, sobrang exciting yung set.

“I think that’s the best asset of the Filipinos, the people.”

Mas relaxed nga raw katrabaho ang mga Filipino kumpara sa mga Koreano, “Chill, laid-back, they have time to relax and enjoy life.

“Koreans, they like everything fast-paced… go, go, go. They want to be effective.

"I think that’s the main difference between Koreans and Filipinos.”

Ganunpaman, puring-puri ni Jinri ang mga kapwa Korean na kasama nila sa teleserye.

“They’re super nice, actually they work really fast, so I like it,” sabi niya.

OLDER MEN. Sa usapin tungkol sa relationship, mas gusto raw ni Jinri ng single older guys.

Nilinaw niyang hindi DOM (dirty old man) ang tinutukoy niya, “No, never!

“It doesn’t mean, di ba, it doesn’t mean if you’re older, you’re a DOM.”

May mga older guys naman raw na binata at malinis ang intensiyon sa isang babae.

Si Jinri ang cover girl ng July 2017 issue ng FHM magazine, at No. 22 sa listahan ng Sexiest Women of 2017.

Nakapagpelikula na rin si Jinri, pero mga cameo lang daw ang appearances niya.

Aniya, “I’ve never really starred in a movie, mostly teleserye.”

Nakasama si Jinri sa nagtapos na Encantadia.

At ngayon nga ay may supporting role siya sa kauna-unahang Pinoy-Korean telenovela, ang My Korean Jagiya.

DREAM ROLE. Ano ang dream role ni Jinri?

Tugon niya, “I really wanna do more action, kasi there’s no big action actress dito, di ba?

“And then action is not very popular, Before, yes, but now, it’s not, like, a common genre.

“And I really want to try it, sa Encantadia I did a lot of action scenes, I did jujitsu.

“Sana, hopefully I get to do action.”

Ang crush daw niyang Korean star ay si “Jo In-sung!”

Si Jo In-sung ay kilala sa Korean television series na What Happened in Bali (2004); That Winter, the Wind Blows (2013); at It's Okay, That's Love (2014).

Ang mga pelikulang nagawa na nito ay ang The Classic (2003); A Dirty Carnival (2006); A Frozen Flower (2008); at The King (2017).
