The K-drama bug is inescapable—even if you are a bankable movie star with a solid social media army and countless million-peso endorsements tucked nicely under your belt. We are talking about entertainment industry darling, Anne Curtis, who just recently got a major fangirl moment with Korean superstar, Nam Joo Hyuk.
Anne got this amazing opportunity to meet the Korean star when the latter had his first-ever grand fan meet-up at the Kia Theater in Manila on September 23. Anne proved to be a K-drama geek when she posted a photo captioned, “Do you like Messi?”—a line popularized in one of the Korean actor’s beloved series.
She added, “P.S. Excuse my (trying to hide my kilig face) smile. I was seriously screaming on the inside. The struggle was real.”
Joo Hyuk reached his superstar status through a number of K-drama hits like Glamorous Temptation, Who Are You, Moon Lovers, and in the Philippines, via the romantic comedy, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.
Anne has long been waiting for this meet-up since it was announced earlier this year that the actor is set to drop by the Philippines for the first time.
Oh my gosh!!!!! Just read the news!!! Baby Boy Nam Joo Hyuk!!!! ???????????? I wonder if he'll bring his baby girl!!!!! ????I love them both so much!— Anne Curtis-Smith (@annecurtissmith) Hulyo 17, 2017
We've all witnessed Anne's K-drama obsession when she first binge-watched Goblin, which served as her crash course to K-drama 101. There was no turning back for the actress—this includes shutting down bashers online. Even her fiancé Erwan Heussaff has openly (and adorably) mocked her unstoppable fangirling!

Anne also flew to Hong Kong to see Gong Yoo in the actor’s Make A Wish tour at Asia-World Expo. Here's a video she uploaded after she saw Gong Yoo up close. She’s basically all of us, which is a comforting thought!
