It was only November of last year when Park Hyung Sik, lead male star of the hit Korean drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, visited the Philippines for his First Love In Manila Fan Meet, and we could vividly remember our intense excitement when we found out in that same week that his Strong Woman co-star Ji Soo will be landing on our shores as well!
And today, we finally lived our K-drama dreams out as Ji Soo arrives in Manila for his own fan meet! Excuse us while we pretend to be Bong Soon, and fangirl all over this kyeopta oppa! During his press conference held in Novotel Manila Araneta Center, we got to see Ji Soo up close, and, yep, we could hardly contain our feels!
A promising actor who's yet to nab a lead role in a K-drama, Ji Soo's career path is something we're all keeping our eyes on. During his interview with MYX VJ Sunny Kim, Ji Soo shared that he still has a lot to improve on as an actor, and that his goal this year is to play various roles that will help him grow in his craft. When it comes to the type of characters he'd like to portray in his next projects, Ji Soo mentioned wanting to play roles in a movie or drama that is based on a true story. Clearly, this one's is setting himself up for a challenge, and we're pretty sure he's beyond ready for it!
In case you didn't know, this isn't Ji Soo's first time in the Philippines. And when asked what Filipino food he missed the most, the Korean sweetheart instantly answered everyone's all-time favorite dish adobo. In fact, Ji Soo ate it for lunch as soon as he landed in Manila! He also mentioned loving "red hotdogs" because they don't have it in Korea, as well, as–wait for it–Jollibee! Well, who doesn't, right?
We obviously can't wait to get to know Ji Soo even more, so catching him at his fan meeting tomorrow is a total must! Make sure you've already grabbed your passes from SM Tickets to see him live and experience the kilig we felt today (and more!) at SM North EDSA Sky Dome at 7pm! It's a Saturdate, guys! See you!
