Korean star Alexander Lee said he felt like a “real Pinoy citizen” after the first time he rode a jeepney.

In an article written by Felix Ilaya of GMA News, it was disclosed that such jeepney rides while filming “My Korean Jagiya” made Lee fulfilled his longtime dream while in the Philippines. He said he has always been curious about riding a jeepney ever since he came to the country a few years back with his then K-pop group, U-Kiss.

“I have seen jeepneys in the Philippines since before but I never had a chance to ride it because to be honest, I didn’t know how to use one. I see people hopping in and out of the jeepney and was always wondering how to grab one or how to pay the fare,” shared Lee.

The actor said he really enjoyed the moment he finally rode a jeepney.

“It was really fun! It was for taping so I didn’t really get to go to the big road but only the smaller roads in Bulacan. But I really liked it a lot,” he said.

“It was really funny because I was filming for My Korean Jagiya and while on the jeep, all the Bulakeños who passed by said hi and waved. It felt like I was doing some election campaign. I really enjoyed it and felt like a real Pinoy citizen at that moment,” he further stated.

Evangelista has uploaded a photo of her with Lee while inside a jeepney:

Jagiyas, where to next? Pupuntahan namin kayo! Hintayin niyo lang kami ha! ?? #MyKoreanJagiya
