What It's Like to be in the Same Room as Kim Soo Hyun

We still can't move on after a week!

I, honestly, can't remember how many times I've already seen My Love from the Star, but I can still remember that first moment Korean star Kim Soo Hyun appeared on my laptop screen. Not only does he possess a great face, he's also really talented. He can act and he can sing—watch Dream High, please?

So imagine my excitement (together with our friends from Summit Media's other titles) when Samsung decided to bring him here for the launch of the Samsung QLED TV last week. Yup, it's been exactly a week since we got the rare chance to see him in person, Candy Girls, but it seems like our hearts aren't moving on any time soon.

In case you're wondering what it feels like to be in the same room as this Hallyu star, we're telling you what went down at our "date" with him last Friday.

The room reserved for the launch was jampacked. Not only because select members of the press, like us, needed to cover the event, but because we all wanted to see this handsome 29-year-old actor in person. We waited for a few hours outside, but we didn't really mind. That was but a small sacrifice, TBH.

Once the doors opened, everyone rushed inside to get good seats. Lucky for us, we got good ones, right in front of the stage. Thank you, K-Drama gods for saving us. LOL! Then the program started and everyone just couldn't hide the excitement. All of us were restless.

And then the most-awaited moment came, Soo Hyun was called onstage. I swear the room went quiet in an instant. TBH, no one was prepared for how gwapo he is. It was like he was surrounded by white light when he went out—or maybe that was just the spotlight? LOL! The actor mouthed a "wow" when he saw the jampacked room. He probably didn't expect a big crowd.

He started off by greeting his fans and then he went on and answered a few questions, like what his impression of the Philippines is...

And what he wants to say to his millions of Filipino fans...

"Thank you for your love and support from afar. It's not quite far, but [it's] here in the Philippines. Thank you for the love and support. Together with the Samsung QLED TV launch [team], I hope for your expectations for my movie Real, too."

We surely will, oppa! And as if him being there wasn't enough already, he even let us get a glimpse of his upcoming movie Real on the screen, which was looooads better because we got a V V V clear view of his face the movie.

It was truly a wonderful experience with the brand's newest TV line, which for sure will make our K-Drama watching moments better. It was one for the books...obvs, because we still can't move on even if it's been seven days. Now, you know what to do, Candy Girls! Time to re-watch his dramas and wait patiently for the Philippine premiere of Real this month.

The new line-up of the Samsung QLED TV is available in authorized Samsung dealers nationwide. For more details, visit the Samsung Facebook page: facebook.com/SamsungPH.

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.

After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.

5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
