- An elderly Korean is now selling noodles on the streets on buy-two-get-one scheme after he got stranded in the Philippines due to the lockdown
- When the lockdown was implemented because of the pandemic, the Korean was not able to get back home, and his money was eventually depleted
- The lockdown was implemented only three days before his flight back to Korea
- What he initially thought something would last for only a month, has lasted for about eight months and the money that he had was all spent, with some having been squeezed out of him by Pinoys and even by fellow Koreans
Korean Chang Sam Hyun, 76, was left stranded in the Philippines because of the lockdown, which was implemented three days before his supposed scheduled flight back to Korea.
In JM Encinas' report "Stand for Truth," in GMA Public Affairs, it was found that Hyun has been going back and forth to the Philippines because of his construction business.
Since his money was depleted, he decided to sell Korean noodles in buy-two-take-one scheme.
He sells this on the streets and every day, he could earn P200 to P300. The only thing that he is asking for right now is for somebody to help him go home.
Anything Korean has always been close to the hearts of many Filipinos. This can be attributed primarily to the love of K-Pop. In fact, many Filipinos closely monitor updates on the lives of Koran actors and actresses. About a month ago, many fans mourned the passing of Oh In-Hye, a Korean actress who suffered from a heart attack at the age of 36.
On the other hand, several months ago, famous actor Lee Min Ho celebrated his 33rd birthday with a special shoutout to Pinoy fans. K-pop fans surely felt proud when the actor made that shoutout.
