Sue, who has never been to Korea, expressed her excitement and interest in the culture of Korea.

"I'm truly fortunate sa dami ng artista ako ang napili nila to be the honorary 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 told ABS-CBN News during her ceremonial appointment on December 19 in Makati City.

She also gave an opinion about her replacing Jessy.

"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.

Sue plans to visit Jeju Island soon and also try authentic Korean food. She will be the ambassadress until November 2018.
