“I think I’ll be in Korea more often.” ‘Boxing Legend’ Manny Pacquiao expressed his unusual affection for Korea.
On the 20th of December 2017, Philippine boxing hero Manny Pacquiao visited Korea with his family. As a Korean agency ‘second thought’, he stayed on a weekly schedule and digested various schedules.
Pacquiao is a boxing genius who has set a record of eight weight class as the world’s strongest pound for pound for pound (P4P) and is a active member of the Philippine Senate. He is also considered a national hero.
In this time, Pacquiao met with Park Won-soon, the mayor of Seoul, and held a ceremony as a global ambassador to Seoul. He visited Korean churches and visited amusement parks for the first time in the Christmas season. He also challenged the entertainment program for the first time, appearing on MBC ‘Infinite Challenge’.
In particular, Pacquiao became a hot topic with the appearance of ‘Infinite Challenge’ during this schedule. This is the first time that he has appeared on TV entertainment programs including Philippine broadcasting.
“It was a great experience to appear in ‘Infinite Challenge’,” he said. The filming was really fun and I received a lot of cheer from the pleasant members. One member was impressed and very kind,” he recalled.
Finally, Pacquiao said, “I am planning to visit Korea more frequently because I am appointed as a global ambassador to Seoul. It seems that I can go on vacation with my family not only officially but also personally. I will spend Christmas again in Korea if I have the opportunity.”
