Dianne Medina, a news reader for ‘Rise and Shine Pilipinas,’ has once again come under scrutiny for mispronouncing the title of a song by the K-pop group iKON.
This follows a previous incident where she was corrected for misreading the word “subunit.”
In this latest incident, Dianne reportedly referred to iKON’s song ‘Tantara’ as ‘Taranta’ during her news broadcast.
A video clip of her mispronunciation quickly made its way to social media, with many users questioning her readiness and preparation before going live.
