Kaori Oinuma, who recently turned 21 last July, gave her fans a special "birthday gift" for their love and support.
On her latest vlog, the "Love at First Stream" actress showed off her dance prowess with her dance covers of K-Pop boy group EXO's "Don't Fight The Feeling" and Kai's "Mmmh."
In the description box of the video, Kaori recalled a conversation she had with a friend and how his simple message saying "be fearless" empowered her to do just that.
She narrated, "Ever since bata ako, I would describe myself as DUWAG. Scared to make mistakes, to be judged by people. I’ve always been afraid of how I look to other people."
"And now that I’m 21, I realized it’s okay to make mistakes and learn from it, that I cannot please everybody to like what I do or what I say. People will judge you no matter what and you will never find happiness if you always think about them. But once you start being FEARLESS, HAPPINESS will come along."
That moment, Kaori then decided to pursue one of her passions, which is dancing.
"That’s why I did one of the many things na nagpapasaya which is dancing!!! I decided to do a dance cover para ma-share ko sa inyo ang aking happiness whenever I dance and of course as my birthday gift sa inyong lahat! Hope you’ll like it! Happy watching everyone! Love you all!!! Let’s go EXO-L!!!"
