Padilla said he didn’t need plastic surgery in order to enhance his appearance during the senate hearing on the FDCP’s budget for 2023.  He quipped, “Kami po ay naguguluhan dahil kapag tumitingin naman kami sa salamin mas pogi naman kami sa mga tiga-South Korea.

Padilla wanted answers from Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) Chairman Tirso Cruz III on why Filipinos favor Koreans when they look better than Korean celebrities.

He continued, “I do believe we Filipinos are better as filmmakers, as actors, but maybe it’s because we’ve been left behind technology-wise and preparation-wise that we can’t be at par with them now.”
