Sorsogon First Lady and certified fashionista Heart Evangelista offered to give Lisa Manoban of K-Pop group BLACKPINK a tour around the province where her husband Chiz Escudero serves as the Governor.
This, after Heart found out through a Filipino Blink that Lisa wants to experience snorkeling with whale sharks — a tourist attraction for which Donsol in Sorsogon is known for.
According to Heart, she would be willing to give the K-Pop star a tour should she decide to push through with a visit to the Province of Sorsogon.
“Omg ... super willing ako tabi mag tour guide! Padabaaaaaa Lisa,” Heart wrote on Twitter.
In an interview for a local clothing brand, Lisa specifically said that she wants to experience Chocolate Hills in Bohol and the whale shark snorkeling in Donsol.
"Oh, actually, I have two places that I want to go and visit," Lisa said. "First, the Chocolate Hills. It is like several hills that look like chocolate because of its color,” she added.
She went on: “And then I want to go to the place where you can snorkel with whale sharks. That's so cool that you can swim together with the whale sharks there.”
Lisa’s interview with Penshoppe — which went viral after the K-Pop star spoke in Tagalog — was a one-time-only stream.
Lisa — who is of Thai descent — auditioned to become a trainee under YG Entertainment in 2010. She is the first non-Korean trainee of the said agency. She debuted as part of the K-Pop group BLACKPINK in 2016. Other members of BLACKPINK are Jennie, Jisoo, and Rosé.
Blackpink has released songs such as “How You Like That,” “Kill This Love,” and “DDU, DDU, DU.”
Meanwhile, Heart has been spending a lot of time in Sorsogon where she helps out Chiz in various relief efforts for the people of Sorsogon.
