Boy Abunda apologizes to Sandara Park for the harsh words he said as a judge on ‘Star Circle Quest.’
On Tonight with Boy Abunda, one of the judges for Pinoy Boyband Superstar, Sandara Park, was asked to recall what for her was the most unforgettable thing host Boy Abunda ever said to her as a contestant on Star Circle Quest.
“Sa dami mong sinabi sa akin, parang wala akong masyadong naaalala. Pero yung, ‘wala kang talent’ or ‘binili mo ba yung mga text votes,’ yung mga ganoon yung naalala ko. Pero alam ko yun, for the rating lang yun.”
This prompted host Boy Abunda to utter an apology. “Let me take this opportunity to apologize to you, I’m sorry,” he said.
Sandara took it with a grain of salt and remarked, “Sinabi mo yun dahil you care for me.” Boy further added, “Look at what happened. I was wrong. You became one of the biggest stars in Asia.”
Now that Sandara is in Boy’s shoes as a judge, she realized that at times harsh words have to be said in order to bring out the best in others. “Sa totoo lang, akala ko magiging angel ako. Pero hindi pala,” she observed. “Nagulat ako, magiging Tito Boy na ba ako? Nagulat ako, pati sila Ate Vice (Ganda), nagulat sa mga sinasabi ko. Pero sinasabi ko yun for them. Ngayon alam ko na nararamdaman mo nung time na yun.”
She added, “tama ka!”
On whether or not the Pambansang Krungkrung will be in the Philippines for good, she shared, “Babalik ako, and going back to Korea – back and forth. Dahil sa Pinoy Boyband Superstar, feeling ko mas madalas na yung dating ko dito. Thank you.”
