Once settled, host Kring Kim strikes while the moment is hot by introducing a quick warm-up exercise for the actor.

While RO WOON Live in Manila is his third visit to the country, he shared that he was not able to explore Filipino dishes.

Lucky for him, the event especially prepared a segment for him to frolic in traditional Pinoy food.

He gets a quick Filipino Food 101 lesson and gets a quick taste of “turon with langka” which he likes and claims is perfect after exercise.

He also munches “puto bumbong” which he described cheesy, but host Kring Kim joked that he put a lot of it which made him laugh.
