It’s no secret that the Philippines is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, attracting international celebrities for a vacation of a lifetime. Among them are Korean celebrities who have expressed love for their Pinoy fans and the country’s rich cultural heritage. But not all of them come for our pristine beaches, lush mountains, and secluded islands. Some visit the most random places, like these K-celebs:
Kai (EXO) at an SM Store
This moment is probably the crossover of all crossovers! K-pop fans went wild after EXO’s Kai shared a pic in front of an SM store. For those who don’t know, Kai’s under SM Entertainment, and no, it’s not related to SM Supermalls. But still, the post made everyone giggle. Who knows, though, we might see a Kai x SM Supermalls collab in the future! *cross fingers*

Ahead of their successful Be The Sun concert in Manila, SEVENTEEN’s DK, and Joshua were spotted having a blast at the SM MOA Seaside. What’s more, they also tried the scream-worthy Dream Twister ride! Meanwhile, another member, Mingyu, was spotted taking a stroll by the bay, admiring the glorious sunset like the rest of us.
TAN (To All Nations) in Intramuros
This seven-member boy group visited the Philippines recently to meet their Filipino fans. The boys didn’t also miss the chance to explore Manila’s cultural spots like Intramuros. Hopefully, they’ll be back again because our country has so much to offer.

Everybody knows Sandara Park loves the Philippines. So, it didn’t come as a surprise to see her share her Filipino roots with others like GOT7’s Bambam. The 25-year-old K-pop star shared on Instagram how Sandara flew to the Philippines to bring him to Gerry’s Grill. Of course, Sandara made sure Bambam tried some local beer and learned to say “Shot puno!” like a Pinoy.
