On an episode of Arirang Radio, fans asked iKON to send them a message in the Filipino language.
To the surprise of the hosts, group member Jinhwan revealed that he had actually lived in the Philippines for seven months before he debuted.
Showing off what he learned during his time in the Philippines, Jinhwan comfortably spoke in Bisaya, a Filipino dialect common in Cebu.
Jinhwan impressed the show’s host by reading out “I love you” in Bisaya.
He also teased his fans and fellow members by saying an exaggerated “My stomach hurts,” causing everyone to laugh.
Jinhwan also added that he became a singer because he was very lonely when he lived in the Philippines ten years ago and singing made him happy.
Fans were definitely surprised to learn that Jinhwan used to live in the Philippines and praised his Bisaya pronunciation.
