Surprise! Surprise! The cast of the Korean show Real Men went to the Philippines earlier this month to film their special challenge working with the ARAW Contingent. I tuned in to MBC last night to watch the show and I was so excited to see the Philippines in a popular show here in Korea.
The cast of Real Men went to Tacloban to help with the reconstruction effort as part of South Korea’s commitment to help the victims of typhoon Yolanda. The Real Men practised Tagalog by doing the scenes from famous Korean dramas in the Philippines: Dae Jang Geum and Endless Love (Autumn Tales). It was funny watching them sound like robots in pronouncing Tagalog words 😀
In another scene, four girls performed “Sorry Sorry” as Henry is a member of the idol group Super Junior. Henry greeted the girls and they were just so excited and asked Henry if they could approach him. The young man said yes and made the girls all giggly.
Another of my favorite scene was of the two boys who lost their parents and younger sister during the typhoon. You just want to hug them an tell them that everything is going to be all right. Henry said he felt like crying hearing about their story but he couldn’t just let his tears fall realizing how strong the boys are.
I will definitely be waiting for next week’s episode of Real Men. I watch Running Men whenever I can but this time, I’ll stay tune to Real Men.
