One such viewer is a 74-year-old halmoni from the Philippines. In our Dear Oppa letter, Rosemarie Dinio penned a letter to Hyun Bin, expressing her love for the actor. She hopes that to meet him someday and take a selca.
Read her letter below:
Dear Hyun Bin
I am a 74 grandma from the Philippines with 3 grown, married children and 3 grandkids.
I was never a fan of KDramas. When I travelled to Seoul, So. Korea and visited Nami Island in 2011, I was unaware of the allure of Korean dramas. But because I saw pictures of Winter Sonata all over Nami, I watched the series when I got home and that was it.
Until the lockdown happened and I had a lot of time in my hands. Because enthusiasts were raving about Crash Landing on You, I decided to watch and I was hooked. It was my first time to fangirl over a Korean actor. Captain Ri made me swoon, I loved his dimples, his handsome looks and his reserved character, but mostly I loved how he cared for Seri. Because you Hyun Bin captivated me, I watched Kim Sam Soon, Secret Garden, Hyde, Jekyl and me, Memories of the Alhambra, and watched CLOY all over again.
CLOY turned me into a KDrama fan. And though I swooned over Park Seo Joon, Park Bo Gum, Gong Yoo and lately Kim Seonho, you will always be my number 1. Someday, if I get lucky to go back to Seoul, I hope I get to meet you and get that selfie.
