Richard’s post attracted thousands of reactions in the online world as many of his celebrity friends and followers enthusiastically posted their own versions of the challenge on their respective accounts.

Different publications also went into a frenzy over the challenge and produced stories about it on their digital platforms.

Richard’s expression of love for anything Korean did not stop only on K-Drama. He also started taking Korean lessons, an initative organised by his fans club in the Philippines, to further understand and comprehend the Korean culture and lifestyle.
