Last weekend, the cast of the GMA Network primetime show, My Korean Jagiya, was welcomed by an overwhelming number of supporters at SM City Bacolod which made the cast—especially lead star Heart Evangelista—deeply emotional.
The 32-year-old actress plays the bubbly Gia opposite Korean actor Alexander Lee. Heart took to Instagram to thank the fans who came out for the mall show. She wrote, "Never in my wildest dreams did I think #MyKoreanJagiya would capture the hearts of so many people! Our mall show last night was truly overwhelming."
She continued, "Backstage, we were so moved that we were crying—hearing all of your screams and messages of support. We will never forget the love we felt! Jagiyas, you have my heart!"
In an interview with PEP.PH, Heart shared how surprised she was because of the unexpected turnout of supporters, "As artists, when we tape, we are living in a bubble working and doing our best for people who watch our show. Last night was a surprise for me because never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be able to capture the hearts of so many people!"
She added, "Each time Xander and I would look at each other and hug, the crowd would go wild! It was just magical! Still overwhelmed and moved by the whole thing. Our eyes were flowing with tears backstage."
