Liza Soberano opened up about meeting K-Pop idols during her recent trips to Korea, describing her experiences as “a dream come true.”
"It was so much fun. It was two trips actually. The first one was just networking, just getting to know the different industry people. The second trip that we had, that was more getting to connect with the actual artists and celebrities, getting to know them and just collaborating on a few social media stuff like TikTok and a few pictures for Instagram," Liza said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
The actress revealed that one of the highlights of her trip was her visit to the YG Entertainment office.
"I was living my fangirl dream, I got to go to the YG office. I’m a huge YG fan. The whole time it didn’t feel real to me, everyday we were just meeting K-Pop idols left and right and it was just a surreal experience, but so much fun. Hopefully, we get to work with them in the future," she said.
The Kapamilya star said that she got starstruck the most with IVE and DK of IKON, among all the K-Pop stars she met there.
"I would say, pinaka na-starstruck ako sa IVE. I met them at the StarShip office. I was also starstruck with DK of IKON. Mainly because when I got to the YG building, he was so humble and he was like really touring us around the building. He made me really feel comfortable while filming the TikTok video," she said.
Liza signed a contract with Careless Music back in June. The actress has been exploring opportunities abroad after she inked a contract with the agency.
"I was looking for personal growth in my career. I’ve been working in the industry for 12 years now and I’ve been working with pretty much the same set of people that I’ve been working since then, not to say that I’m not grateful, not to say that I haven’t achieved so much by working with them but as I got older, I started discovering who I really was and I wanted more control over how to express that," she said on why she signed with Careless in an interview in June.
She continued: "I also wanted to work with people my age to be honest... and when I met James and his team it really made me even more excited to work with because their team is so young, so creative and they are so fearless to take risks and try to chase after things that we would think is impossible."
