No one is immune from the K-drama fever—not even celebrities! We caught some of our local stars fangirling over their favorite Korean dramas (and mostly actors) on social media, and needless to say, we totally understand their #feels. Curious? Read on and find out who they are.
Let’s start with the obvious—Anne Curtis has been a major Gong Yoo fangirl since her K-drama journey started with Goblin. She’s been raving nonstop about his love for the Korean actor on social media and even recently flew all the way to Hong Kong to attend his fan meet. Not only that, they also have occasional #twinning moments!
Anne’s It’s Showtime co-host is also a legit K-drama fan! Karylle is particularly enamored of Korean heartthrob Lee Min Ho, who starred in Legend of the Blue Sea, The Heirs, and Boys Over Flowers—and in case you’re wondering, yes, she’s watched all three already!
Glaiza de Castro
We died of envy during Glaiza de Castro’s most recent visit to Seoul! Apart from having been able to see G-Dragon's solo concert, the Encantadia actress made sure to take “a private tour of a K-drama set at KBS Main Building,” as reported by PEP.ph. She even posted an OOTD on Instagram where she was posing against a wall art that features Lee Jong Suk of W.
Remember how Kaila greeted her mom, Janice de Belen, last Mother’s Day? She referred to her as a “K-drama connoisseur,” which we can only assume means they watch K-dramas together. But if you need more proof, just take a look at her witty Instagram caption below that’s obviously is in reference to Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. They even have the same hairstyle!
It’s no secret that Ellen Adarna is a K-pop fan—one quick scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll notice a slew of her videos dancing to the beat of Super Junior and BoA. But did you know that she’s also a big Goblin fan? This bombshell is highkey crushing on both Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook.
Did anyone say Lee Dong Wook? Bela Padilla also has a huge crush on this Korean cutie thanks to Goblin. Not that we can blame her, obviously.
Andrea Brillantes may not be gushing over her K-drama obsession on her social media accounts, but the netizens did not fail to notice her major fan-girl moment as she left comments on the IG post of Nam Joo Hyuk, the lead actor of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. Of course, we kept receipts—check out the screenshot below!
