Did You Know: Kim Seon Ho wanted to go to the Philippines!

Well, almost.

Everyone is caught up with the “second lead syndrome” for Kim Seon Ho, who is starring as venture capitalist Han Ji Pyeong in the K-drama, Start Up. Being the second lead, his character is caught up in a love triangle with Seo Dal Mi (Bae Suzy) and Nam Do San (Nam Joo Hyuk).

Already halfway into the series, K-drama fans are rooting for #TeamJiPyeong.

But did you know that Kim Seon Ho mentioned coming to the Philippines in a previous drama?

In the 2017 drama, Strongest Deliveryman, Kim Seon Ho starred as the second lead (yup, “Start-Up” isn’t his first time) Oh Jin Gyu, who is ambitious and rich in becoming a CEO of a delivery company.

In one of the episodes, Oh Jin Gyu mentions going to the Philippines instead and become a construction worker.

Kidding aside, we still wish for him to visit the Philippines soon. But for now, we’ll root for him as Han Ji Pyeong.

(PS: We’ll also continue to laugh at him in 2 Days & 1 Night where he shows his hilarious side.)

Always up and about, Cheska was once asked if she always meets different people every single day. Well – not always – but almost because it is part of her job description and because she is actively involved in church. Having the opportunity to join KStreetManila, she combines two of her loves – writing and Korean culture. During her downtime (which somehow rarely happens), she is either scrolling through Twitter, writing for her blog, trying to be fit, reading a good book, or appreciating beauty and fashion.
