Pacquiao disclosed this during his guesting at a Korean variety show “Knowing Bros” along with K-Pop star Sandara Park.

“Meron pa ring (plans). Yung passion ko na makatulong sa tao, andun pa rin,” said Pacquiao, to which Park translated in Korean to the talk show hosts.

Pacquiao said it was the main reason why he joined the previous Presidential elections.

“Sumali ako dahil gusto kong disiplinahin yung mga tao pagdating sa corruption. Gusto kong sugpuin yung corruption, and then gusto kong umunlad yung bansa natin,” he said.

He shared that prior to the Presidential elections, he has been helping people in need by distributing houses and lots to the homeless, providing sustainable livelihood, and giving free education to thousands of students.

Pacquiao has been guesting in shows in South Korea to promote his exhibition match with martial artist DK Yoo on Dec. 11 at the Korea International Exhibition Center in Goyang, South Korea.

According to Pacquiao, proceeds from this match will go to the displaced victims of war between Ukraine and Russia, as well as his plans on building more houses for the homeless in the Philippines.
