MANILA, Philippines -- Korean host Ryan Bang said he finally forgave his mother who left him in Manila for more than five years.

In an interview on the morning show "KrisTV" on Thursday, Bang said he found out that marital problems pushed her mother to send him in the Philippines.

"Dati talaga (galit) ako. Limang taon hindi kami nag-uusap ng mommy ko. Kasi nagsinungaling siya sa akin, pinapunta ako dito sabi isang linggo lang tapos, limang taon na," Bang revealed.

In Manila, Bang stayed with his mother's friend before deciding to join "Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash of 2010."

And now that he has found success in show business, Bang said he is still shares his blessings with his family.

"Ako ang nagbigay sa mommy ko. Binili ko 'yung condo para sa mommy ko at kotse," Bang said.

Bang is currently part of ABS-CBN's noontime show "It's Showtime."
