Any K-drama fan knows the pain and longing of only seeing their bias through the screen. But Pinoy actor Christian Lagahit, who’s known as Player 276 in the trending K-drama Squid Game, can’t relate.

Lagahit has been gaining the attention of K-drama fans for being one of the game players in Squid Game. The K-drama shows players competing in a do-or-die battle that features children’s games with a life-threatening twist. 

The Pinoy actor, who works as a marketing consultant and English tutor, acts as an extra in K-dramas as a side gig. He also manages a YouTube channel Explore with Ajhussi where he uploads travel vlogs and other experiences in South Korea. 

As an extra in K-dramas, Lagahit has appeared alongside popular actors like Son Yejin (Crash Landing on You), Lee Hyeri (Reply 1988), and Song Joongki (Vincenzo). 

Here are some of his photos with your favorite K-drama actors and locations:

Jealousy Incarnate, which stars Jo Jungseok and Gong Hyojin, is the story of a weather girl who’s in love with the bestie of her co-worker. Lagahit actually appeared as one of the roadside sellers in one episode.

Lagahit actually calls Crash Landing On You star Son Yejin as his noona (a man’s older female friend). We’re so jealous!

Remember the iconic church in the Kingdom of Corea at the 2020 fantasy-romance K-drama The King: Eternal Monarch? According to Lagahit, it’s actually the first catholic church in Daegu, South Korea.

If you’re a fan of heartthrob Song Joongki, then you probably recognize Lagahit as the waiter who spoke Tagalog in the 2021 film Space Sweepers

Joongki and his friends were brainstorming at a restaurant when Lagahit suddenly entered the scene, saying, “Mago-order ba kayo? Kung hindi na naman, umalis na kayo.”
