Aside from being the “Miss Wacky Go Lucky ng Cagayan de Oro” of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7, Maymay was also known as the “Pambansang Fangirl” as we were able to relate with her frantic reactions upon seeing KathNiel and LizQuen for the first time while still inside the house.

Aside from having the chance to act opposite them, she and her ex-housemates also had the chance to bond and catch up with them. Of course, who would forget that time when Big Brother gave her the fantastic chance to have her dream date with her ultimate celebrity crush Enrique Gil after giving her false hopes a number of times.

At present, ASAP Natin ‘To’s “Dancefloor Sweetheart” is particularly close with Kathryn after they worked together in the blockbuster movie “Hello, Love, Goodbye.”

It can be recalled that Morisette competed in the first season of The Voice of the Philippines and was coached by Sarah Geronimo.

Sandara Park is also huge Popster!

Even though she’s already a global Korean pop superstar, it’s amazing to know that Sandara is a huge Popster, a.k.a. Sarah Geronimo fan. She captioned the photo of them that she posted on Instagram in 2016, “With my idol!!! Sarah G!!!”

The following year, she once again bumped into the Popstar Royalty and celebrity choreographer Georcelle Dapat-Sy as seen in the photos she posted on Twitter. In 2020, the “Pambansang Krung-Krung” was among the celebrities who participated in her idol’s “Tala” dance craze.

 It was in 2018 when K-pop girl group Momoland dropped by It’s Showtime. Of course, the gregarious hosts and the other cast were indeed stoked to see them, especially its most popular member Nancy McDonie, who is said to have striking resemblance with Pinay actress Liza Soberano.

And one of the It’s Showtime stars who were lucky enough to snap a photo with her was then-Girltrends member Chie Filomeno, who posted two photos of them together, and captioned one “KPOP FEVER IS STRONG!!!”

The Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10 alumna wrote in the caption of her Instagram post, “Honestly, the word ‘gorgeous’ is an understatement when describing her. I still can’t believe this actually happened. …..”

Kathryn Bernardo is a certified fan of Taylor Swift and Ronaldo Valdez

For sure, a lot of Swifties (or Taylor Swift fans) were envious of Kathryn and her friends when she and her friends weren’t only able to attend the Manila leg of her The Red Tour concert in 2014, but to snap a picture with American songstress, too!

The Asia’s Superstar then expressed her admiration for veteran actor and her 2 Good 2 Be True co-star Ronaldo Valdez, who she fondly considers as her favorite actor. She wrote in the caption of her IG post: “It's such a privilege to be working with him for this project! Fun fact: He was our ONLY choice for the role when they pitched #2G2BT last year. No one else. Being able to do this show with him is one of the highlights of my 2021.”

Anne Curtis is definitely living every Hallyu fan’s dreams

We can definitely all agree that Anne is one of the luckiest K-drama and K-pop fans out there! In 2019, she didn’t just meet one, but three famous names in the Hallyu world at present.

In February of that year, she wasn’t just able to watch their concert, but to have a picture with girl group BLACKPINK backstage, too. The It’s Showtime host also met two of her favorite Korean oppas Park Bo-gum and Gong Yoo in two separate events. She hosted the “Good Day” fan meeting of Park Bo-gum in July 2019, then bumped into “Goblin” lead actor Gong Yoo during a luxury fashion brand’s special event in South Korea in October.
