The Pasig River was once again the spotlight in a South Korean actor’s pictures.

Korean actor Ahn Hyo Seop, known for his role in the Korean series “Business Proposal,” dropped by for a quick picture-taking with his huge billboards along the road in EDSA Guadalupe in Makati City. A part of the Pasig River could be seen behind him.

In a post by the Philippine Star, the pictures showed Seop and his billboard endorsements with Bench. The actor is one of the brand’s global ambassadors.

Seop visited the Philippines for his “The Present Show” fan meeting that was held on October 8 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

He delighted and charmed the crowd on his show with numerous performances. Among the highlights was his powerful dance number to Taeyang and Jimin’s “Vibe.”

Seop’s pictures of his billboards quickly caught the attention of some Filipinos on social media. They mostly noticed the murky Pasig River behind him.

“Images you can smell. Kawawa naman si pogi,” an X user commented.

“Ganda ng background, Pasig River,” a Facebook user quipped.

“Eto na naman tayo sa chocolate river,” another Facebook user said.

A Facebook user suggested that the government improve or renovate the area.

“I think the government must improve that spot. It could be a popular tourist spot. Parang Glico sa Japan,” the user said.

Before this, Kim Seon-ho also took pictures in front of his billboards in Guadalupe when he visited the country for his fan meeting last July.

At that time, the river also seemed to outshine the actor in the photos, prompting Filipinos to comment more on its dismal condition.

Seop, meanwhile, is currently on tour for his “The Present Show” in Asia. It included stops in Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan.

Since his debut in 2015, he has appeared in popular South Korean dramas, including “Business Proposal” and “Doctor Romantic 3.”

He recently starred as the main character in the South Korean mystery “A Time Called You.” The series can be streamed on Netflix.
