Who wouldn't be happy for the "bongga-cious" and delightful Anne Curtis? After the lengthy rise of a glorious career in showbiz, this TV queen finally finds the love of her life and is soon about to settle down in matrimony. Everyone's practically abuzz, keeping tabs and curious about her preps and her overall beauty, fitness, and style direction toward her big day. She's not letting on too much, though, honestly, because she wants it all to unfold in time.
Even if Anne has grown up leaps and bounds and is about be someone's wife, her fun, child-like side still manages to gush in wonder at simple things like K-Dramas and Korean pop culture. This side of her, apart from her lit-from-within radiance, is still what endears her to millions of fans around the globe.
How did your love for K-Drama begin exactly?
“It all started on a Sunday night, Erwan and I usually have our movie nights. I asked ‘Have you seen Train to Busan? and he said “No.” So then we started watching Train to Busan. I saw the lead actor (Gong Yoo), I googled him, and then I started watching Goblin, then yun na.”
What is it about Goblin that got you?
“The story, the acting, the OST, it’s so superbly done, as in parang siyang film. It’s really one of my hopes for Philippine TV, na maybe one day we can reach that. It’s so well done talaga. And they shot so long for it before it actually aired.”
