Ella Cruz still can't get over the fact that one of the members of her favorite four-piece K-Pop group KARD noticed her on Instagram.
Having posted a video of Somin's performance at the Busan One Asia Festival in South Korea on her Instagram stories, Ella still couldn't believe that one of the two girl members of the group of which she is a huge fan would actually notice her.
"OMG! Somin of KARD sent me a heart emoji thru DM! GISINGIN NYO KO! OMG OMG OMG," she wrote.

According to Ella, she flew to Busan, South Korea after she received an invitation from the Tourism Board of the City.
"I was invited by Busan Korean Tourism Organization in Korea and Korea Tourism Organization to be our country's representative in their BTO Mega Fam Tour event," she said in an interview with PUSH.
Asked about her overall experience in Busan, she said, “It was really fun po 'cause it was my first time in Busan and it's really beautiful. Exciting rin kasi first time ko po to be out of the country na ako lang mag-isa. I wasn't expecting much from the trip. Akala ko magiging work lang siya but naging sobrang saya ng tour kasi ang ganda ng mga pinuntahan and events (festival and closing ceremonies), people from BTO talagang inalagaan kami and pati 'yung mga nakasama kong other Filipinos naging magkaibigan po kami."
According to Ella who she became a fan of KARD after she saw the group's dance video of "Oh NaNa." She couldn't be any happier to have seen the group perform live.
"And the best experience is siyempre po as a K-Pop fan, isang malaking check sa bucket list ko makapanood ng concert sa Korea.”
Known for their hits such as "Don't Recall," "Rumor," and "Hola Hola," KARD came to Manila last February and performed before a sold-out crowd at the Kia Theatre.
