Today in #pinoypride news, we cover the veteran frontman’s love for a kpop starlet as it reaches the very shores of Korea!
Last November 30th, the iconic OPM band Mayonnaise released their latest album entitled “Friends & Family” and while most of the album entries were along those lines, a certain track catches the attention of listeners for bearing Korean characters. Mayonnaise’s song “박채영” or Park Chaeyoung was confirmed by the band’s frontman and songwriter, Monty Macalino, as being about the BLACKPINK member indeed.
Articles of Mayonnaise’s Park Chaeyoung circulated K-media around January 5 where it eventually got featured in media giant SBS’s morning news program, Morning Wide.
ROSÉ was featured in SBS Morning News talking about Filipino band, Mayonnaise, made a song titled “Park Chaeyoung”.

As to why the Kpop star inspired the songwriter, Macalino shares that Rose had played a big part in lifting his spirits during a time when he was feeling low.
In an interview with uDOu for uDOu Beyond last August, the frontman shares he wrote the song after looking through Rose’s Instagram account during a time when he had been confined at the hospital for an ailment.
