The Philippines is known for its “war-zone” like new year celebration with almost every Filipino setting off fireworks and firecrackers on the street. The government this year intensified firecracker regulations but still allowed fireworks displays in select areas.
Xander currently stars in GMA7’s Filipino-Korean romantic comedy series “My Korean Jagiya” with Heart Evangelista.
Looks like we’ve made another great impression on a K-Pop idol and we’re just starting the year! Happy 2018 everyone!
