Korean drama Crash Landing on You certainly won the hearts of many Filipinos with its great cast and outstanding plotline. Almost every Pinay dreamt of having a face and love story like Yoon-Seri. Meanwhile, other ladies swoon at the mere sight of Hyun Bin. There’s no doubt that many couples will peg for this drama’s aesthetics. Like this inspiring prenup that has been making the rounds on the Internet!
Showcasing the beauty of their love and the cinematic view of Soccsksargen
The prenuptial photos of Sultan Kudarat First District Rep. Rihan Mangudadatu Sakaluran and Police Lt. Al-shadat Hassan Abdurajak went viral on Facebook. Netizens are admiring the couple’s Crash-Landing-on-You-inspired photos.
Sakaluran said in a Facebook post that their prenuptial photos and video highlights the “beautiful places of Soccsksargen.” OutLoud Studios added that the pre-wedding video features the La Palmera Mountain Ridge in Sultan Kudarat province. They also had to shoot in some parts of General Santos City.
According to the source, more than 4,600 people shared the couple’s prenup photos and it also gained over 18,000 reactions and 1,100 comments. But Sultan Kudarat 1st district Representative Sakaluran wants to give the credits to the people behind the camera. She added, “The photographers and videographers and the whole team that made it really special and successful.”
Sakaluran got the idea of having the Korean drama concept because she got hooked with Crash Landing on You. “I love their characters and Captain Ri as a soldier really suits my husband [because] he is a police officer so I told him na ‘Let’s do a CLOY-inspired prenup’, she explained during an interview. She said that her fiance-now-husband is also fond of CLOY and a Korean drama addict as well.
Salangguni as a Muslim tradition in Mindanao for engagement
Aside from their prenup, the congresswoman also shared a stunning and unique concept of their “Salangguni” or engagement ceremony. She mentioned that they had to make a lot of changes to the ceremony since they had to move the data from June 28. “For the inspiration of the engagement, I really wanted to incorporate and show our Muslim tradition po here in Mindanao,” Sakaluran mentioned.
She recalled, their estimated guests were like 1,000 but it did not happen because of the pandemic. After that, Sakaluran’s grandfather advised them to push through their salangguni/pagturul tayma/engagement after the lockdown. Because of that, they just decided to hold the event on their farmhouse as a family gathering only.
The pandemic cannot stop these two people who want to declare their love and commitment. Do you guys agree?
