Ella Cruz shares fangirling experience in Korea: ‘Naghintay ako for like 3 to 4 hours’

 

Ella Cruz shared that she has gone fangirling even if she is a celebrity. The actress relayed that at the time she went to Korea, she attended an event of her favorite K-Pop girl group and experienced what it means to be a fan.

“Recently nang pumunta ako ng Korea bilang alam naman ng lahat na isa akong big K-Pop fan, pumunta ako sa isang meet and greet ng isang girl group na which is Black Pink and don ko na-experience ang paghihirap na ginagawa ng mga fans para makita lang ‘yung mga iniidolo nila,” she said in an interview with PUSH. 


She narrated how she had to wait for Black Pink for long hours in the freezing weather just to catch a glimpse of them.

Nong December naalala ko wala akong any tickets, wala akong any passes sa mga music show, concert na nandon so ang ginawa ko naghintay ako backstage para lang makita sila. Imagine -2 degrees ‘yung temperature don. Nandon ako naghihintay ako for like three to four hours para lang makita lang namin dumaan,” she relayed.

Ella remarked that she realized at that point the big sacrifices fans make just to see their idols.

“Imagine pa dito [sa Pilipinas] ‘yung mga fans natin dito. Dito naman mainit, naghihintay sila ng ilang oras para lang masilayan o masilip or makapag-hi sa mga iniidolo nila so don ko mas na-appreciate ‘yung mga fans dahil grabe ‘yung effort na ginagawa nila at grabe ‘yung pagmamahal nila sa mga iniidolo nila dahil ‘yun nga hindi mo sila kaano-ano, hindi mo sila lahat kilala pero ‘yung pagmamahal nila sa’yo sobra sobra,” she stated.

Ella stars in an upcoming movie which revolves around the story of being a fan. The actress teamed up with Julian Trono for the film Fangirl, Fanboy. Asked if she feels pressured considering that this is their first mainstream movie together, Ella confessed that she does.

Sobrang pressure, as in ‘yung pressure namin lalo na ako next week na ang Fangirl Fanboy, sobra-sobrang higit pa sa pressure ‘yung nararamdaman ko. As in umiiyak ako, ganong level kasi symepre una naming pelikula ‘to tsaka ‘yung tiwala na binigay sa amin ng Viva, siyempre gusto namin na ma-fulfill ‘yung expectations nila peroyung pressure na ‘yun ginagamit na lang namin in a good way na ito ‘yung kaya naming gawin, ito ‘yung pinaka-best namin. Mas pinag-iigihan na lang namin, mas pinagbubutihan na lang namin siyempre,” she said.
