On the 28th of January 2016, The Cordillera Brotherhood Organization (CBO) in South Korea, organized an event called “Dang-dang ay” which means “get together” held at Zum Bar, Namyeong Station, Seoul.

And there we go, not only meet and greet but the photo ops in addition. And because it was holiday in the entire peninsula, large crowd of Filipinos from Seoul and even from the farthest Gwangju province were present on that day.

CBO invited Jeyrick Sigmaton here in Korea, and cheers to that CBO!, as their honored guest for Dang-dang ay. As we all know he is from Cordillera. Certainly he has that good looks and in like manner has that Korean look. Moreover, “Carrot Man” rendered a song and played the guitar as well. The crowd couldn’t get over with his charms.

How I wish there was that dating game to excite the crowd even more… lols! Anyhow, seeing “Carrot Man” in person was something to remember.
