We feel very excited and we can’t wait to show everyone what we and the company have worked hard for.” he said.
They were asked if there was a place they would want to visit and a Filipino meal they would like to try. Harang said that they would want to visit Boracay since most idols have been there, and they would like to go as well. Also they want to try eating Balut, since they researched it’s a Filipino meal. Rio shared that he is a fan of Filipino singer and actor James Reid and that he would want to meet him and work together – and to show how much he is a fan, he sang the chorus of “Huwag Ka Nang Humirit” by James Reid.
