In an Instagram post, he said that the show is a special project as it brought him to his home, Philippines.

“This is a very special moment for me.
“This is the one special where I was like, I need to go back home, the Philippines. I need to show people where my mom is from.”

“Let’s show ’em how beautiful the country is. Let’s show ’em how beautiful the people are, and let’s just do a show.”


“Jo Koy: In His Elements” will premiere on Netflix this June 12.
