If you‘re wondering why Sharon Cuneta made it to the top trending topics on Twitter on June 9, it's because the Megastar, a self-confessed K-Pop fan, got the chance to meet the boys of NCT 127 backstage during the Korean World Music Festival (KWMF) 2019.
According to Sharon, she wasn’t allowed to see the boys at first, but later on, found a way through Vice Ganda after the latter contacted his fellow It’s Showtime host Ryan Bang, who served as the emcee of the jam-packed show.
“Thank you so much to my Vicey @praybeytbenjamin for calling and calling Ryan Bang in the middle of his emceeing! You made our whole year! And thank you dear Ryan Bang for getting us through the boys’ masusungit na handlers! Mahal ka namin grabe! That’s my Taeyong and the boys! We love you NCT 127! @nct @nct127,” she wrote.

The Megastar, who referred to herself as “feeling 16,” almost didn‘t make it to the show.
“Huwag muna NCT 127 at late kami please Lord! Hahahaha feeling 16 ako my gulay! I‘m gonna see my boys in a while. O. M. G,” she stated in one of her posts.

Dubbed by NCT 127 fans as NCTzen momma, Sharon also reposted fan-captured videos of herself while fangirling alongside her daughter Miel over the boys.

You can ask Sandara of 2NE1 about me because we used to work in the same TV station.🥰 I have been a singer since I was 12 and a film actress since I was 15.😊Maybe on your next break I can invite you and your managers to a very private beach that has the whitest sand and bluest waters where no one will bother you!!! It will be our treat! We love you!!! Please do a full concert in Manila!!! But we will fly anywhere to watch you if our schedules allow! We love you!!! #nctzenmomma
