Jessy Mendiola Talks About New Foreigner SuitorJessy Mendiola confirmed that she is happy and inspired now because of a foreigner named Sebastian Legaspi, a Colombian national she met while vacationing in Boracay.
As the honorary ambassador of the Korean tourism, Jessy visited various tourist spots in South Korea. One of the pictures was with Sebastian. When asked about it, Jessy confirmed that Sebastian surprised her in Jeju Island.
Jessy said she was happy that Sebastian took the time to follow her there. Even her handler was happy to see him. "Kaya parang nakakatuwa lang. Imagine, hindi ko kasi inakala na pupuntahan niya ako sa Jeju. So, effort yun."
Sebastian is a traveler who happened to be in Boracay at the time Jessy was there with her friends. She noticed that he is naturally friendly since even her friends became close to him.
They met after Jessy accidentally poured her drink on him.
But what made her really happy was the fact that Sebastian followed her in Korea because that meant he took the time and the effort.
There were no plans for them to meet in Korea, but they talked and found out they are both headed there. Jessy was headed to Jeju Island while Sebastian was about to go to Seoul.
On her second day on the island, Jessy was surprised to know that Sebastian was also there. She doesn't want to hope that Sebastian will follow her at first, so she was happy to find out he did anyway.
Jessy said Sebastian is not pursuing her yet. He went home to Colombia to finish his studies. Sebastian is only 19 years old, but Jessy said he's very mature for his age since she got to talk to him.
Jessy is three years older than Sebastian, but the actress maintained that age is not an issue with her.
She doesn't want to assume, however, that Sebastian is going to pursue her. "I’m just happy that I met someone like him and he met someone like me."
Sebastian is actually planning to go back to the Philippines before the year ends. Jessy said she's happy to meet someone like Sebastian who's very open. She was also shocked with herself because she felt she wanted to open more to Sebastian.
Jessy is not yet ready to be in a relationship, but she is happy that Sebastian felt she made a mark on his 11-year journey.
