Pinay actress Cherish Maningat (more popularly known as Cherish Unni) just posted the most adorbs photos with Korean actor Lee Seung Gi! Cherish is based in South Korea and has appeared in many dramas such as Dr. Romantic 2. In an Instagram post, she talked about working with Seung Gi in the K-drama Mouse.

"I'm just so happy and honored to have shared a frame with such a talented person like Lee Seung Gi," Cherish wrote on IG.

She also talked about a sweet moment with him on set, saying: "I still remember the first time I saw him when we were filming episodes four to seven. I was quietly waiting [in] one corner and he came. While we were on standby, he suddenly asked me if I am Korean. Maybe because I was still wearing a mask? I said no and I'm from [the] Philippines."

She added that when they were talking with actor Lee Hee Jun, who attended the same Korean university as Cherish, Seung Gi mentioned that "he thought I was Korean at first, and just acting as a foreigner!" In the show, Cherish played the role of Kim Han, a foreigner and the mother of a boy named Han Kook. In the show, they were abandoned by Han Kook's father, and their touching story was aired on television, capturing the hearts of the nation. Han Kook was then kidnapped by the serial killer terrorizing the city.
