We love it when the Hallyu world crosses over with our local showbiz industry, and one interesting ~connection~ we just found out is Nancy McDonie of K-pop girl group MOMOLAND actually has a Pinay best friend. But that's not all, she also happens to be an artista! Let me introduce to you ABS-CBN actress, Charlie Dizon.
ICYDK, Charlie most recently got cast as the young Teddie in the Four Sisters And A Wedding prequel and can be seen on the teleserye A Soldier's Heart. But unknown to most, the 24-year-old rising star actually trained to be a K-pop idol in Korea when she was younger and that's how she met Nancy. We got to see a sweet interaction between these besties in a recent Instagram Live of Charlie's which Nancy hopped on to join. After exchanging their greetings (these two haven't done a video call in forever) and catching up on what they've been up to, Nancy revealed a fun fact about Charlie: "I knew you since I was 11," she said.
Charlie went on to say, "I know! Yeah, I met Nancy when she was still 11. And now she's taller than me and prettier!"
Talking about the times they spent together in the Philippines, Nancy said, "We have a lot of unforgettable moments—I'm not sure if I should be open about it! But yeah, she's like my best friend in the Philippines. She took me everywhere. She was so nice. She always came to my hotel and picked me up. And she would show me all these great places and restaurants, and even people too! We had a great time. It was really awesome."
The two BFFs wrapped up their call by promising to visit each other—whether in Korea or the Philippines—when it's already safe to travel. Nancy even said goodbye to Charlie by referring to her by her real name, April!
Too cute! We'd love to see more of these two!
