The year is 2009. The only thing you had to worry about was your homework for the next day, and when you’re finished you could stay up late to watch “Boy Over Flowers,” and fangirl to your heart’s content.
We were all bitten by the “Boys Over Flowers” bug - everyone had at least one notebook or pin with the show’s poster, and we were all collectively in love with the four flower boys: Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Joon, and arguably everyone’s favorite, Kim Bum.
And then, later that year, the most amazing thing happened: Kim Bum came to the Philippines!
All of our fangirl hearts clamored to just get a peek of him, but no one was luckier than Maja Salvador: Kim Bum told her she was beautiful, and then they worked in a commercial together!
“Maganda [si] Maja Salvador,” the actor had said back then, and we were all simultaneously jealous and kilig!
The pair reunited in 2010 for a sequel to their commercial, but have not worked together since then. Unfortunately, Kim Bum is currently in the military completing his mandatory service, but we hope they can do a legit project in the future!
Here are some more stories about Kim Bum and Maja Salvador:
