Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has drawn criticism for kissing an overseas Filipina worker on the lips during a live event.
 
Duterte was speaking to a crowd in South Korea when he called the woman on stage then convinced her to kiss him.
 
The scene drew cheers from the crowd, mostly made of up other Philippine workers.
 
But it was described as "disgusting theatrics of a misogynist president" by Philippines rights group Gabriela.
 
It is not the first time Duterte has been accused of inappropriate behaviour towards women.
 
The controversial incident took place when Duterte was speaking to a crowd of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Seoul.
 
Two Philippine women were invited to join the president on stage to receive a free copy of a book and were visibly star struck standing next to Duterte.
 
He hugged the first and gave her a kiss on the cheek before gesturing the second woman to kiss him on the lips.
 
After a protracted back and forth, with nervous laughter from the young woman and repeated gestures by Duterte, the president eventually leaned in to kiss the woman on the lips.
