Kim Seon-ho, K Drama Star From 'Start Up', Is Globe's Newest Ambassador
There doesn't seem to be an end to the K-wave currently overtaking not just our lives, but our airwaves too. With Globe's latest announcement, K-drama fans have been more excited than ever. The telecommunications company has recently introduced Kim Seon-ho as its latest ambassador. The actor, who won our hearts for his role as Han Ji-pyeong in the K-drama Start-Up, was also previously spotted in Welcome to Waikiki 2, Two Cops, 100 Days My Prince, and Strongest Deliveryman.
Now, the be-dimpled actor can be spotted in Globe's newest advertisements. He'd recently appeared in a video posted last February where he was seen unboxing packages sent in by local fans. Hinting at the recently concluded press fan meet-up, he'd also said: "Kita tayo sa March 21!"
The virtual fan-meet up, which was held on that very day introduced Kim Seon-ho to a bevvy of lucky admirers. Globe had prepared a video to virtually tour the actor through some of our most iconic islands, and there were plenty of games to boot! Kim Seon-ho was also tested on his knowledge of Tagalog vocabulary, learning basic phrases such as "mahal ko kayo" and "ingat".
As major brands in the Philippines continue to reign in the power of Korean celebrities, it's now become very important for fans to feel connected to their idols. Since the beginning, Globe has been supportive of this enthusiasm. They've created the Kmmunity PH Facebook group, which empowers fans to pursue their love for Hallyu. It's also given them a platform to connect with each other through mutual interests.
