In case you missed it, South Korean actor Lee Dong-hwi — popularly known for his role in the hit series Reply 1988 — has been staying in the Philippines for a few weeks now.
Fans have spotted him at numerous familiar places in the country over the past few weeks including Rockwell and Greenbelt in Makati and another at a mall in Cebu.
Apparently, he is here for work.
Just recently, one lucky fan had the opportunity to have a photo taken with Dong-hwi during an encounter with the Korean actor at a mall in Pasay City.
A fan shared her experience in the official fan group of Reply 1988 on Facebook, saying she politely asked Dong-hwi for a photo.
“Just saw Lee Dong Hwi last Friday at Conrad! No more second thoughts, we ran outside from Starbucks so we could take a picture with him and tada.
Edited: We respectfully asked him to take a picture with us and thanked him,” fan Hannah Nicole wrote in her post.
Although Reply 1988 came out in 2016, the show became popular among Filipino fans during the pandemic through streaming giant Netflix, where it has been streaming since.
