Dasuri Choi has endeared countless Filipinos when she was catapulted to mainstream popularity after winning as 2nd runner-up on Eat Bulaga’s top-rating segment “You’re My Foreignay” in 2014. Choi has since been a co-host on the GMA News TV reality-lifestyle show Day Off opposite comedian Boobay and singer-actress Julie Ann San Jose while being featured in the Sept. 2015 issue of FHM Philippines. Choi also ventured into acting as she appeared on some of GMA-7’s top-rating series such as Pepito Manaloto, My Korean Jagiya, and Inday Will Always Love You.
“As a South Korean brand, it would be perfect to have someone like Dasuri to represent our brand as she could easily relate to what our appliances stand for,” says GTC-Aldis Philippines, Inc. COO Gerry Alava.
“I am so happy to see Hyundai expanding into the Filipino market. Being part of Hyundai Home Appliances has been such a wonderful experience, and I’m truly grateful that a global brand that gives innovative solutions has welcomed me into their family. 현대 (Hyundai) in Korean, translates to modern or contemporary times, and much like the Filipinos who strive for progress in their lives, the brand has been producing reliable electronics and home appliances. The Hyundai Home Appliances I own have a special place in my Korean heart, since they are not only pleasing to my eyes because of their classy designs, but also because they are very reliable and efficient. I am honored to share this brand to my family and friends and make them part of the Hyundai Home Appliances community,” says an ecstatic Dasuri whose favorite Hyundai Home Appliances include the steam rice cooker, built-in gas stove, infrared cooker, circular electric grill, coffee machine, television, and air conditioner.
“Get to know me and my days with Hyundai Home Appliances – together we’ll teach everyone helpful home hacks, health tips, all things Korean, and many other amazing updates on Hyundai,” says Dasuri.
WITH the pandemic hampering some of the band’s planned releases, Lola Amour was finally able to share their latest song “Fallen” – a track that was written back in 2019 and was originally slated to be released in April 2020.
Discussing the recording process of “Fallen,” Lola Amour bassist Raymond King explains, “As ‘Fallen’ was written and arranged before the pandemic, it was put together the same way a typical Lola Amour song would. Pio had a skeleton, then we all pitched in during our rehearsals. Recording, on the other hand, was a whole new ball game. We actually recorded about 60 percent of the track in early 2020. Then, because of the lockdowns, we were only able to continue in early 2021. That lull was both good and bad for us. It was good because we had enough time to digest the song.” he said
“Fallen” currently has almost 250K total play counts, and as far as Gen-Z promotion goes, the band’s TikTok promo now has an accumulated 2.5k likes on its three entries, all thanks to their ever-supportive fans. “When we premiered our ‘Fallen’ single launch on YouTube, we saw a lot of messages in the live chat where they said that they wanted to tell their crushes that they’ve ‘Fallen.’” Raymond says.
For the remainder of the year, the band is set to release a few more songs that they have been working on since March 2021. “We’ve asked help from a couple of our friends for this project, and we’re all excited to share this with everyone. Stay tuned!”
