A good day to K-pop stans especially to Filipino NCTzens! If you didn't get a VLive notif last night, February 28, then you really missed out on this gem: NCT's Taeyong held one of his usual VLive sessions and asked fans for some song recos. What we didn't expect, though, was for him to pick out an OPM song from the comments section—and it was Ben&Ben's "Pagtingin", no less!
With a quick Google search—well, in Taeyong's case, Naver search, NCT's beloved leader/rapper/dancer/visual/center (whew!) tried his best to sing the Filipino lyrics for all of us Filozens. Here's a snippet of Taeyong's super adorable jam sesh as posted on Ben&Ben's official Facebook account:
And yes, the nine-piece indie-folk band did thank Taeyong for singing their song! ICYDK, Ben&Ben's "Pagtingin" was released in 2019 and its music video starred real-life lovers Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos. Check it out below:

This isn't the very first NCT x Ben&Ben crossover, though! Back in August 2020, Ben&Ben released their first video of K-pop covers and one of which is NCT Dream's (one of the sub-units of NCT) "Beautiful Time." Ang galing lang!
