LOOK: TV Patrol news anchors dance to EXO’s Ko Ko Bop

The Ko Ko Bop Challenge continues to spread around the country that even TV Patrol’s news anchors Noli de Castro, Bernadette Sembrano, and Ted Failon couldn’t resist joining in the fun during the August 9 episode of the news program.

Introducing the news segment about how the Ko Ko Bop Challenge continues to trend in several parts of the world, Sembrano says, “Hit na ang Ko Ko Bop Challenge. Iba’t ibang lahi ang nagpo-post sa social media ng kanilang mga pa-sample na sayaw.  Courtesy ito ng isa sa mga pinakasikat na K-Pop boyband sa buong mundo, ang EXO.” (The Ko Ko Bop Challenge has become a hit. People from all over the world have posted their renditions of the dance. The Ko Ko Bop Challenge originated from one of the most popular K-Pop groups in the world, EXO.)

Marc Logan’s segment report talks about how the origins of the trend, calling EXO “halimaw ng K-Pop” (monsters of K-Pop). Logan proceeds to describe the dance saying “Choreography na parang napadaan lang. Parang lahat biglaan. Less effort, pasok na pasok ang iyong da moves.” (The choreography is like you just passed by as if everything was so sudden. Don’t exert too much effort and your moves will be passable.) Logan ends his report with “Ano, will you take the Ko Ko Bop Challenge?” (So, will you take the Ko Ko Bop Challenge?)


Former vice-president Noli de Castro, Bernadette Sembrano, and Ted Failon stand in the middle of the studio to finish the program by doing the Ko Ko Bop Challenge, with reporter Gretchen Fullido and the rest of the TV Patrol crew laughing in the background.

Will you participate in the Ko Ko Bop Challenge?
