In Focus: Six Celebrities Who Love K-Dramas As Much As We Do



The K-Drama craze has been in our country far as long as we can remember. There’s just something about these stories that are super addicting, in the bets way. Whether you watch it for the narrative or the actors or both, overall, K-Dramas just make our days a little less stressful—and these celebrities can relate to us more than you know!


1. Anne Curtis 

The It's Showtime host's love for Goblin’s Gong Yoo and her K-Drama obsession is no secret to her fans. The actress even went to his fan meet in Hong Kong! It was also just last month when Anne met (and took a snap with) Weightlifting Fairy actor, Nam Joo Hyuk. We’re absolutely waiting for the day that Anne gets a chance to take a selfie with Gong Yoo, too!

2. Bela Padilla

It looks like Anne isn't the only one who has the Goblin fever! Here's Bela fangirling over Gong Yoo’s co-star Lee Dong Wook beside her rumored beau Zanjoe Marudo. We can see the similarities, Bela! *wink*

3. Ella Cruz

From K-Pop dance covers to visiting South Korea to go to places where her favorite K-Dramas were filmed, the young actress is all about Korean culture! She’s not only into K-Drama and K-Pop, but also K-Fashion and K-Beauty—just like us, TBH!

4. Inigo Pascual

Who says K-Dramas are just for fangirls? Inigo is one of those actors who isn't shy to show his K-fanboy ways! He even tried acting like a Korean actor with Maymay Entrata—and he totally had us convinced!


5. Maymay Entrata

It looks like Maymay isn't just gunning to be an actress here in the Philippines, but also in South Korea! Can we just watch and appreciate how good her acting is? Someone’s putting makeup on her, but look at how she pulled that off!
