It’s every fangirl’s dream come true to meet their favorite Korean heartthrobs and crushes in real life. TBH, even a simple like or comment on social media is more than enough to send a loyal stan to cloud nine.
While many of us will never get the chance to interact with our beloved K-Drama oppas and K-Pop biases, we can always live vicariously through these Filipina celebrities who already have! Or we could mope in a corner, whichever works best.
Scroll through the list of celebrities below to learn about the exact moment they got to connect with famous Korean oppas:
Earlier this month, Francine squealed in excitement when “All of Us Are Dead” actor Yoon Chan-young slid into her DMs!
“Ikamamatay ko ‘to!!! 😭😩❤️ Cheong-san!!! Saranghae!!! ❤️” she posted in her Instagram Story, along with a screenshot of the actor’s “waving hand” emoji message to her.
But Yoon Chan-young isn’t the only actor from “All of Us Are Dead” who made an appearance in Francine’s circle.
Apparently, Ham Sung-min, who currently has 1 million followers on Instagram, included Francine in his very small “following” list of 229 people. Whoa!
Meanwhile, in TikTok-verse, dancer-actress AC made ARMYs and IDs green with envy when her dance covers were noticed by BTS and B.I.
BTS "liked" AC’s dance to “Butter” while B.I. commented fire and high five emojis to her take on “Got It Like That”!
If we’re gonna tally which Pinay actress has met and interacted with the most South Korean stars, Anne would definitely top the list.
The first oppa Anne ever got to meet face-to-face is “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” star Nam Joo Hyuk during his fan meet in Manila.
Back in 2019, Anne and her “crush” Park Bo Gum’s Twitter exchange broke the internet. Even Anne’s husband Erwan Heussaff commented, “Ang haba ng hair mo.” True say, Erwan. Ang haba nga ng hair ni Anne!
Two months later, Anne finally met Park Bo Gum in person when she served as the emcee of his “Good Day” fan meet.
2019 was really good to Anne’s fangirl heart, especially when she got to meet her “ultimate oppa” Gong Yoo during a luxury brand event in Seoul.
In the same event, Anne also breathed the same air and looked into the eyes of EXO’s Sehun. This lucky girl!
When Ji Chang Wook caught Heart looking at him during a brand event in Singapore, the actor asked if she wanted to take a photo! Getting a photo-op proposal from an oppa? That’s next level!
“NCTzen momma” Sharon ticked an item off her wishlist when she and her daughter Miel got to meet K-Pop boy group NCT 127 at the K-Pop World Music Festival in 2019.
In June 2018, Pia achieved her “true fangirl moment” next to Super Junior’s Choi Siwon during the K-Pop group’s Super Show 7 concert at the MOA Arena.
Sue and Blanc7’s Shinwoo had the chance to work together for the 2019 cross-cultural film “Sunshine Family” which was entirely shot in Korea.
In an interview with Push, Sue gushed over her leading man, saying, “Ang bait-bait ni Shinwoo, tapos ang cute kasi nagpapaturo rin siya sa amin mag-Tagalog at anu-anong kalokohan ang tinuturo namin sa kaniya.”
Sue also admitted how “surreal” it was to have met actor Lee Dong Wook at the opening ceremony of Korea Tourism Organization's #LoveKOrea Culture and Travel Fiesta in 2019. We’d definitely feel the same way if we’re only a few inches away from the Korean heartthrob!
