BamBam of the K-Pop group GOT7 just had an inuman session with former 2NE1 member Sandara Park in a popular resto bar and grill in Manila.
On Instagram, BamBam shared a photo of him and Sandara smiling at the camera as they held their respective beer bottles.
"She fly all the way to buy me Gerry's Grill," the rapper-singer wrote in the caption on July 28, adding "shot puno" as a parenthetical remark. The Filipino slang is used in the context of drinking alcohol, suggesting that one must down an entire bottle or glass of liquor.

July 28 was also the day he held an exclusive fansign event at Ayala Malls Manila Bay, where thousands of Ahgases, or those who are fond of GOT7, went to see him.
BamBam appears to be fond of the expression lately. His fan meet videos circulating in social media show him saying "shot puno," like in Twitter user @ilhooncheonsa's upload. There, a sitting BamBam raises his canned drink before hundreds of fans as he drops the two magic words, leading to screams and applause.
Following his "shot puno" remark, the term has become a trending topic on Twitter. According to Twitter trends tracker trends24, there are already over 12,000 tweets bearing the expression since then.
Sandara also shared BamBam's post on Instagram Stories, calling him her "little brother."
The Facebook page of Gerry's Grill, meanwhile, thanked Sandara for visiting its branch at Ayala Malls Manila Bay. The kitchen staff also had a photo opportunity with her.
Prior to his July 28 event in Manila, BamBam also visited Cebu last July 26.
Last July 25, BamBam lit up Twitter as he shared a photo of him eating fried bangus alongside Filipino staples sisig and lechon. Sandara, then, told him to try tosilog, or tocino, sinangag, and itlog, exciting the Twitterverse further.
BamBam is performing with fellow K-Pop acts Jackson Wang and Treasure tonight, July 29, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay as part of the 2022 K-Pop Masterz event.
