Park Seo Joon was the talk of the town yesterday after Smart Communications officially announced the Hallyu heartthrob as their newest ambassador. That said, somebody else was lucky enough to share the limelight with the Korean actor, and the internet was quick to turn their attention towards the female model who joined Seo Joon in the TVC.

Yep, we’re talking about his co-star, named in the commercial as Sab. “Look at this girl and how lucky she is,” quipped one netizen. “Uso po social distancing,” joked another at the sight of Sab sitting on the couch beside the actor.

So who exactly is the lucky woman who’s caught the attention and envy of thousands of PSJ fangirls? After a whole lot of sleuthing online, curious onlookers were finally able to identify her as May Myat Noe. She even posted her TVC with Seo Joon on her Instagram page. “Smart Ako with @bn_sj2013. So blessed to be part of this. Thank you @jsagency.kr and @livesmart for giving me this opportunity,”  May’s caption read. 

Curious to know more about her? Us, too! We did some digging of our own, and here’s what we found.

1. She’s of Burmese descent.

As much as she looks like it, she is, in fact, not Filipina. May is a Burmese actress and fashion model who competed on the fourth season of Asia's Next Top Model back in 2016. Coincidentally, she joined the show on the same year as Miss Universe Philippines 2020 contender Alaiza Malinao.

2. She’s a beauty queen.

Aside from modeling, the 22-year-old also happens to be a beauty queen. Honestly, we never even stood a chance! Six years ago, May—who was only 16 at the time—was crowned as Miss Asia Pacific World, a contest annually held in South Korea. Unfortunately, she was dethroned just three months later after an arguement arose between her and the pageant organizers.
