Filipino actress Max Collins was at the 2018 APAN Star Awards in Seoul, South Korea where she presented the most popular male and female awards, October 14.
Max presented the awards to two Korean artists: the most popular male award to Jung Hae In, and most popular female award to Park Min Young. Park was unable to attend the ceremonies, however, and sent a video of her acceptance speech instead. Max also graced the red carpet of the said awards night.
In presenting the award, Max shared how popular Korean dramas are in the Philippines and told them that she was also the Filipino version of the popular Korean series “Coffee Prince,” taking the role of the character Han Yu Ju (the series aired in 2012).
After presenting the award, she took a photo with Jung, a moment which she called “the icing on the cake.” She furthered that she was “humbled” to represent the Philippines at the said awards show.
