Oppa Encounter: "You With Me" Movie Meet & Greet
After 6 months of watching Korean Dramas every night, I attended my third KDrama / KPop related event yesterday, a meet-and-greet for a Fil-Korean movie promotion. You with Me will star former PBB Teen housemate Devon Seron, and two oppas who will fly back and forth here in the country to shoot the movie, including Jin Ju Hyeong (Hwarang!!!) and Kim Hyun Woo (The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop, Pasta).
Sharing to you some photos I took during yesterday's event at the Glorietta 4 Cinema Lobby. Special thanks to The Annyeong Oppa for inviting me! ❤

Jin Ju Hyeong in Hwarang and Kim Hyun Woo in Pasta. Super cuties!!!
I was already in Starbucks Glorietta 4 at around 4pm, and I can see from there that the stage area was packed hours before the event! It was a humble venue, but the fans did not disappoint!
Met up with the online oppa meme squad: Annyeong Oppa, The Saranghae Oppa, Saranghaeyo Oppa, and Love Me Oppa! They are really nice to me, thank you!
Special thanks to my friend Anj of The Annyeong Oppa for my VIP pass, and for always supporting my Korea ganaps!!!
Look at their phone cases, haha! Oppa overload!
When we heard loud screams, I decided to check the happenings at the venue. I entered the VIP lane and waited for 30 more minutes before the cast arrived. While waiting, I talked to some friendly fellow K-Friends, young and old. Some were already there when the mall just opened, while others came from far far away! A host also entertained the fans with sponsored games and Q&As.
And finally, the You With Me cast went up the stage! The crowd went hysterical! Haha!
I think the oppas were whispering how they totally did not expect this crowd to welcome them in Manila!!! ❤
The cutie Kim Hyun Woo and Devon Seron:
Kim Hyun Woo was very expressive on how grateful he is to the crowd. During the sit-down Q&A, he stood up several times just to bow and thank the people who came during that afternoon. He also smiles a lot, very cool guy!
Cutie Jin Ju Hyeong's voice is deep and nice, kainlove! Mwahaha! He also speaks good English, and always throws "finger hearts" to the crowd!
With the movie director Sir Rommel Ricafort. He Tweeted a few days ago that only Devon made him almost cry during the auditions for the female lead! This made me even more curious about the young actress, gusto ko na sya mapanood umarte!
They also sang a few lines and even danced TT (legit!), and then answered all the questions from the fans. It was also Devon's birthday, so they gave her a cake and a birthday song.
The event ended with the oppas getting random phones from the audience, and taking selfies with the crowd! They are super accommodating and sweet!
Excited to see more updates about this movie, and of course, watch it on September!!! ❤
