The Korean Tourism Organization (KTO) had just held a ceremonial appointment today for the Philippine's newest honorary tourism ambassador Sue Ramirez.
The Kapamilya actress and singer expressed her gratitude for the opportunity as well as her interest and fascination for the Korean culture.
"I'm truly fortunate sa dami ng artista ako ang napili nila to be the honarary ambassador for Korean tourism dito sa Pilipinas. Sobrang blessed ng pakiramdam at sobrang excited na ako sa kailangan kong gawin. I promise to give my best to be a great ambassadress for Korea tourism," she shared.
Ramirez, who is replacing Jessy Mendiola, admitted it would be her first time to visit the country and she is excited to visit the popular Jeju Island as well as to eat authentic Korean food.
"She has great image. She's also interested in Korea, that's why we chose her and she agreed. We are very happy," said the director of KTO Manila, Inshik Park referring to Ramirez.
The young star will travel to South Korea to experience their culture and share it on her social media accounts as the tourism ambassador for December 2016 to November 2018.
Unfortunately many have made a fuss over Ramirez replacing co-Kapamilya star Mendiola. Nonetheless, Ramirez has qpolitely denied replacing her.
"Hindi naman mapapalitan si Jessy. Siguro something new, something different at magkaiba naman kaming tao. Kung ano ang na-offer ni Ate Jessy, I'm sure talagang satisfied ang KTO. Ngayon something new lang siguro ang hinahanap nila at nandito ako para i-offer 'yon sa kanila," she said.
