You can send money to the Philippines from South Korea via Metrobank remittance service.

Among Philippine banks, it's only Metrobank which has branches in South Korea.
(I checked the websites of other major Philippine banks involved in remittance.
BDO's remittance partner in Korea is Kookmin Bank.)

    1. About encashing a foreign-currency check issued abroad:
      The payee should deposit the check to her foreign-currency account. The payee's name should be the same as bank account name. The account should be in the same currency as the currency of the check. If the check is in US dollars, the account should be a US-dollar account. Clearing will take a longer time compared to domestic checks.

    2. On second thought, this is about banking in South Korea, so the best thing is for you is to ask your bank there in South Korea.
