Liza Soberano is one of the biggest names in the Philippine entertainment industry, but it seems that she is also starting to make a name in SouthKorea after she made a surprise guest appearance in one of its television shows.
In the recent episode of Not Hocance But Scance, a Korean television show that first started airing in May, Soberano could be seen approaching the show's stars Ye Ji-won, Soyou, Nicole Jung, and Kang Ji-young.
She later on introduced herself to them, sharing that she wanted to say hi because she was such a huge fan.
When asked by Jung if she was on a vacation, Soberano answered that she was both vacationing and working.
"Kind of vacation, kind of work. I'm just exploring Seoul, and I'm a huge fan of K-pop and K-dramas so I want to try to find work here," Soberano said.
She shared to them, "I always look up random Korean variety shows to understand the culture."
Soberano then got into a conversation with her idol Soyou, where the former SISTAR member asked her if she knew her songs, to which Soberano replied by citing the song Touch my Body.
When Ji-won asked why she liked Korea, Soberano answered that she liked the country ever since she was eleven because of K-pop.
"I've liked it since I was eleven. It started with K-pop and then I started watching dramas like Boys Over Flowers," she said.
In her Instagram story, Soberano expressed her gratitude to the show's stars for welcoming her, "Thank you to the hosts and guests of the show for making the experience fun and comfortable!"
Soberano had been posting photos and videos of her trip to Seoul for the past few days. Her most recent post shows her sharing sizzling dance moves with Kim Donghyuk to Go Girl by Pitbull.
