Korean Pop music has been taking over the Philippines for quite some time now. From hearing their songs in public, snatching local brand endorsements, to sold-out concerts in Manila's biggest venues. It is safe to say that the K-Pop bug has spread everywhere and our very own Filipino celebrities, like Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Glaiza De Castro, etc., are far from safe. Here are some of the other Pinoy celebs who are also K-Pop fans.

1. Benjamin Alves

The Kapuso actor recently made headlines in the K-world due to his tweet asking his Twitter followers when is K-Pop group, BIGBANG, releasing their next album. A few more tweets later and Benjamin just proved that he is a fan of both the first and second generation artists like Rain, Seo Taiji and Boys, Epik High, BIGBANG, SNSD, etc. Perhaps, his experience as an English tutor to Koreans before was one of the reasons he got introduced to Korean music?

2. Ellen Adarna

K-Pop is surely taking the hearts of the Philippines' biggest stars because even the Megastar, Sharon Cuneta, couldn't resist its charm! Her daughter, Miel, influenced her and their favorite groups are NCT and TWICE. A video of Sharon's Gandang Gabi Vice guesting, where she danced to Twice's "TT" recently went viral.

Gavin, Scarlett, and Kendra Kramer (in photo) are the children of Basketball player Doug Kramer and model-actress Chesca Garcia-Kramer. The kids' yaya Cris is a fan of YG artists and that eventually led to the Kramer kids also falling in love with BIGBANG, 2NE1, and the most recent one, iKON. Last March 2018, The Kramers uploaded a video of Scarlett inviting iKON's Bobby to her birthday party this November and after an hour, Bobby replied with a birthday video greeting! With iKON having a concert in Manila this November 11, 2018, we will see if the kids (and yaya Cris!) will finally get to meet the group in person.

8. Tina Panganiban-Perez
