Later that night, Fine Arts and Design Student Organization (Fadso) of Philippine Women's College of Davao, also released a statement on their official Facebook page confirming that Hwang In Yeop, known as "Ryan" by his PWC family, was also a graduate of Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Fashion Design in 2012.
Fadso post said he used to model for his fellow fashion students, who are now very delighted to witness his success, knowing that he started out as a fashion model before reaching his stardom as an actor.
Aside from heating up the runway with his passion for fashion, his heart to serve the PWC community was also revealed in one of the viral photos of their yearbook. In a post by one of his classmates, it was revealed that he was once a member of their Supreme Student Council.
