LOOK: MNL48’s Sela fangirls over receiving SEVENTEEN’s lightstick

It looks like two more MNL48 members have been revealed to be K-Pop fans. More specifically, they are revealed to be Carats!

On Facebook, Sela posted an unboxing video of gifts given to her by MNLoves on the idol group’s Christmas mini-concert held last December 23.

The first box she opened contains a Carat Bong, aka SEVENTEEN’s official lightstick.

Watch the first few minutes of the video to see her reaction.


Sela revealed that she already opened the gift before she filmed the unboxing video. In a teaser video from her Instagram stories, it was clear that she was overjoyed upon receiving the Carat Bong.

Meanwhile, Sela’s fellow member—Jem—may not have announced that she received a Carat Bong (we hope she did), but she did respond to a fan sending her a fan-made pin inspired by the lightstick.

Sela and Jem are part of MNL48’s senbatsu, the Top 16 girls of MNL48. Last month, the group released their second album Pag-Ibig Fortune Cookie with the title track of the same name. Said song is the Filipino version of AKB48’s 2012 hit, “Koisuru Fortune Cookie.”

We’re glad to see that our local idol groups could freak out about their fave idols, too!
