Just like the rest of us, local celebrities dream of meeting their favorite K-drama stars. There have been a few lucky ones who have already turned that aspiration into reality, including Francine Diaz

Yesterday, the 18-year-old actress went to the Mall of Asia Arena to attend Kim Soo Hyun’s fan meeting in collaboration with Bench. As a fellow endorser for Bench, Francine joined the event as a VIP guest.

Afterwards, Francine herself took to Instagram to express her kilig. She re-posted a photo of their brief exchange with the caption “Pag tumingin ba ko sayo akin ka na?” LOL, she’s truly one lucky fangirl! 

Francine has always been a big fan of K-pop and K-dramas, so this actually isn’t the first time that she’s been noticed by an international star. Previously, Yoon Chan Young sent her a wave on Instagram DM and Ham Sung Min followed her back.
