Ryan Bang admits he is saving up to buy a house for his family.
Arguably one of the most successful members from his batch in Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash of 2010
, Ryan Bang has his hands full as a regular on shows like Showtime
and Banana Split
as well as busy preparing for the upcoming second season of his Studio 23 show 3ow Powhz!
The 20-year-old Korean said he is very thankful for all the blessings he has now and admits that being on-cam a lot has helped him improve in a lot of ways. “Sobrang masayang-masaya ako. Kahit mahirap ang buhay, sobrang masaya pa rin ako sa buhay ko talaga. Ngayon mas malinaw na ako mag-Tagalog. Pero sana
next year mas malinaw noh? Masaya na ako sa Showtime
and Banana Split. Masaya na buhay ko dito talaga. Tapos babalik kami sa Eow Powhz! Sa
season two abangan nila na ako mas hindi bulol. Mas malinaw. Mas naintindihan nila. Sobrang nakakatawang
,” he shared with Push.com.ph.
With his parents and relatives based in Korea, Ryan said he is especially grateful to Johnny Manahan and Star Magic for being his second family here. “Sobrang masaya ako kasi wala akong pamilya dito sa
Philippines. Ngayon kasama ako sa
Star Magic family, siyempre masayang-masaya ako. Meron akong lolo, si
Mr. M. Kasi
Mr.M medyo matanda eh kaya lolo
(laughs). Meron akong
handler ko. Tapos yung mga kaibigan ko, pamilya talaga kami. Kaya masayang-masaya ako dito sa
Philippines dahil sa
Star Magic. Masaya ang buhay ko dito. Tapos yung
parents ko, masaya buhay nila sa
Korea,” he shared.
Ryan said that one of his biggest inspirations to work hard is to be able to earn enough to bring his parents here and build a house for them to stay in. Ryan admitted he still misses being with his family even if he is busy with work here. “Meron silang trabaho dun. ‘Pag mayaman ako, ‘pag meron ako bahay, papapuntahin ko sila dito. Sabi ng ibang tao mayamang-mayaman na ako, pero hindi. ‘Pag may bahay ako, sana sabay kami nakatira sa pareho ng bahay. Yun yung
goal ko. Yung nanay at tatay ko magpunta sila dito tapos sa isang bahay kami nakatira. Ito yung pinaka
g goal ko siyempre. Ako lang nakatira ngayon dito eh kaya siyempre malungkot.
With his extended stay as a Showtime
judge, Ryan said he is still not being complacent about his position in the daily talent show. “Every week, akala ko tanggal na ako eh. Alam ko puwede pa rin ako matanggal kaya takot ako. Hindi ko alam kung matanggal ako pero masaya ako sa Showtime. Wala ng sample sample ngayon eh. Hindi ako nauubosan ng sample ko pero ubos na ang
t-shirts ko eh
(laughs). Wala na akong
t-shirts (laughs),” he said.
Ryan also recently made a hilarious commercial for a local undergarments brand which he said he says was a lot of fun. Unlike other underwear endorsers, Ryan said he was not pressured at all to prepare for his ad. “Wala ako
pressure. Gusto nila malaki tiyan ko eh
commercial yun. Kasi hindi naman talaga ako macho eh. At saka dahil sa commercial ko, masaya mga tao kaya masaya rin ako
,” he explained.
