20-year-old Kim Jiwan, a Korean contestant on 'Pilipinas Got Talent' was recently involved in an awkward situation with PGT judge Robin Padilla.
The action star criticized the contestant for not speaking Tagalog, when in fact he lived in the country for a long period of time.
"Firstly, mag-Tagalog ka muna bago mo ako kausap," Robin said.
He even compared Jiwan with Ryan Bang who according to him, speaks Tagalog fluently.
"Pasensya ka na kasi mayroon akong kakilalang Koreano, si Ryan Bang, na mas magaling pang mag-Tagalog sa akin."
Angel Locsin, another PGT judge, helped Jiwan during the awkward situation.
Locsin tried to teach him some Tagalog words and later volunteered for his tricks.
However, netizens reacted on Padilla's attitude towards Jiwan, which Fashion Pulis reported.
They said that he was very rude and what he did was inappropriate.
