Korean-yet-Pinoy-at-heart Ryan Bang is back pursuing his passion for music with the production of his second music video titled “Like Love Follow.”

Co-produced by Skinny Fat Boy Productions, the same team behind his first video “Shopping,” Ryan’s new music video tackles the netizens’ social media attitude.

Kasi ‘yung like sa Facebook, ‘yung love sa Instagram and ‘yung follow sa Twitter about sa social media,” he said.

The upbeat song, Ryan explained, caters to the Filipino fans of the Hallyu Wave that has enjoyed K-Pop and K-Drama.

Ginawa ko ito kasi ang dami palang gustong matutunan na Korean words ng mga tao gaya ng nasa Korean drama and K-Pop. So ginawa ko lang na parang ABCEFG,” he said.

The concept of the song, according to Ryan, is something that he and his co-It’s Showtime hosts and musicians Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz have come up together.

For this music video, Ryan also made one of his dreams a reality—which is to rap in Filipino. The actor-comedian takes pride over the fact that he tapped little known talents to assist him in the creation of the lyrics for the rapping portion.

Matagal ko na talagang gustong mag-rap kahit na bulol ako. First the time, kahit na for fun, ginawa ko ang rap na Tagalog,” Ryan shared.

Ryan says he enjoyed rapping so much that he hopes to learn some of it and hopefully to employ it on his upcoming music videos.

Ryan is a real example of a “Touristar”

As for “Like Love Follow’s” music video, Ryan explains that it took on the theme of the gag show Banana Sundae

Just like his previous music video, “Like Love Follow” features an all-star cast including his Banana Sundae co-stars like Jessy Mendiola and Kuya Jobert.

Even his co-It’s Showtime hosts joined in the fun like Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Kim Atienza, and Vhong Navarro. Seasoned news anchors Gretchen Fullido, Bernadette Sembrano and even Kabayan Noli De Castro also made an appearance in “Like Love Follow.” 

Some of the members of the rising dance groups Hashtags and GirlTrends also spiced up the video with their performance of the “selfie dance,” which according to Ryan, was choreographed by Jhong Hilario.

“Like Love Follow” is Ryan’s second self-produced music video, which he considers his birthday gift to his fans. Exactly a year ago Ryan launched “Shopping,” inspired by his desire to showcase the local malls to his Korean friends. 

Ryan first dabbled into singing in 2011 when he launched his first album I Lilly Lilly Like It: Ryan Bang Party Party Hits!

“Like Love Follow” music video is for free on YouTube.
