Hindi man daw nararamdaman ng Korean actor na si Alexander Lee ang epekto ng nuclear tests ng North Korea kapag nasa South Korea siya, hindi pa rin niya maiwasang mag-alala.
Pahayag ng My Korean Jagiya star, “I don’t know why, but usually when I was in Korea and when we are inside Korea, it’s not really that bad, you know?
“But when I see the news, when I’m abroad, it makes me worry.
"So, I always ask my friends who are in Korea right now, ‘Is everything okay?’
“‘Yeah, so far okay, nothing’s wrong!’
“It’s just the news that is really scary and shocking, but I really have no idea why this is happening, you know?
“I don’t know what’s going on but, hopefully, you know…
“‘Coz that really affected Korea’s relationship with China and everything, so all I could do is pray for them here.”
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Alexander sa taping ng Kapuso primetime series na My Korean Jagiya, sa Antipolo City, kahapon, September 6
SHOWBIZ EXPERIENCE. Sa kabilang banda, tila aliw na aliw naman si Alexander sa kanyang showbiz experience dito sa Pilipinas.
Ginagampanan ni Alexander ang karakter ni Kim Jun-ho sa My Korean Jagiya, katambal si Heart Evangelista.
Kuwento ng K-pop star, “So far, even though I couldn’t visit everywhere yet, so far, working is really different.
“‘Coz here, no matter what, they feed you very well here!” natatawang sabi niya.
“In Korea, it’s always, hurry, hurry, hurry, dali, dali dali.
“We eat fast or we don’t eat, we finish the scene first and eat afterwards when you have time.
“But here, no matter what, ‘Dali, dali… eat first!’
“Eat first and then work.”
Ang mga paboritong pagkaing Pilipino daw ni Alexander ay sinigang, halu-halo, dinuguan, adobo, ginataang bilu-bilo, at kare-kare na may kasamang bagoong.
Nakakain na rin daw siya ng balut.
“I like the taste, but I only like the yellow and white part.” saad niya.
Bagamat masaya si Alexander sa Pilipinas, hindi ikinaila ng aktor na nami-miss na niya ang South Korea.
“I do miss my friends, my home, my family there.
“But yes, so far, I’m still enjoying here,” tumatawang tugon niya.
Nami-miss na rin daw niya ang co-star niyang si David Kim, na gumanap bilang Kim Jin-hu, ang kuya ng karaketer ni Alexander na si Jun-ho.
Bumalik na kasi si David sa South Korea dahil namatay na ang character nito sa kanilang teleserye.
Saad ni Alexander, “It was a bit sad ‘coz, you know, we came here together as a team.
“And he left first, so at first, it’s like… I just started to become really close to him and we always hang out together, eat together.
“And suddenly, he left, so it really felt like the drama is real, now that he’s not in the Philippines anymore.”
