Knowing that a Tony award-winning artist like Lea Salonga is a K-Drama fan too is such a great news for the K-Drama fans. There are also other Filipino celebrities who have publicly declared their love for K-Drama and Kpop. This shows that indeed, KDrama is for people of all ages, all races, regardless of your life status.
@rishtaduran Nope, I don't watch Korean dramas.
