Prayer reveal naman dyan, mga mumsh!
Ah, the life of a fangirl (or fanboy). It’s truly unpredictable, and in some cases it allows you to keep entertained when life throws you lemons. In the Philippines, the influence of Hallyu Wave is pretty visible. The Korean restaurants and Korean marts are there to prove it.
Though, as a fangirl, one’s ultimate goal is to get noticed by their favorite Korean stars. Of course, being a Filipino celebrity is not an excuse…unless you’ve had intense connections to make it work, no? Anyway, in this article, let’s relive the ~feels~ and a bit of ~inggit~ when these lucky Pinays got noticed by their idols!

The two also had a cute exchange when Siwon commented on Pia’s Instagram.
