Her farewell comes after she and Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas II confirmed their engagement over ABS-CBN’s noontime show “Wowowee” last April 18.

“Alam n’yo, dalawampung taon na ako dito. Pero sa tingin ko ay panahon na din para magbigay at mag-alok ako ng konting panahon para sa aking personal na buhay. Kasi kapag wala na akong ngipin at saka hindi na ako makalakad ay hindi naman kayo ang kasama ko kung hindi siya [Mar Roxas]. So, kailangan may puhunan sa relasyon na ‘yan,” Korina reportedly said.

However, she will still continue to host her weekly ABS-CBN magazine show, “Rated K,” shown every Sunday.
