MANILA, Philippines -- Korean media personality Grace Lee said Thursday that she is willing to boycott Chinese goods.

"Boycotting Chinese products... possible? I take on the challenge! No more new Chinese product for me from this day forward until... let's see," Lee said on Twitter.

Lee admitted that it will be hard to stay away from Chinese products but said it's still "worth a try."

"OK, I'll do like a countdown. Let's see how many days I can go without Chinese products," she said. "Just no new purchase."

Albay Gov. Joey Salceda renewed the call for a boycott of "made in China" goods amid reported intrusions of Chinese ships in the disputed Scarborough Shoal.

President Benigno Aquino III admitted last February that he and Lee have been dating.

But early this week, he stressed that the Korean host is just a friend.
