A Filipina senior citizen has recently celebrated her 70th birthday by throwing a Park Seo Joon-themed party.
Aurelia Galarrita, also known as Batch, is considering herself as the ultimate fan of the South Korean actor Park Seo Joon.
According to her daughter Mel Galarrita Menes, her mother got hooked with Korean dramas during the lockdown period and started to like the actor.
Batch is even learning Korean ‘just in case’ she met the handsome actor.
Park is one of the casts of Itaewon Class which has been the talk of the town since it became available on Netflix.
“Dahil sa [enhanced community quarantine], hindi makalabas mom ko, at hindi rin namin siya mabisita. Pero yung kapatid ko na kasama niya sa bahay, sinigurado na masaya siya,” Mel tolf ABS-CBN News.
She added that her sister taught her mom to use Netflix and Viu.
“Tuwang0tuwa mom ko na mapanood lahat ng K-drama, pero ang mga shows ni PSJ ang naging paborito nya talaga,” she further added.
Since Batch got addicted to the Korean actor, Mel and her sister throw her a surprise party.
“Dahil gustong gusto nya si PSJ, nag-decide kaming magkakapatid na i-surprise siya sa birthday niya na yung ang theme. Akala nya mag-o-order lang kami ng pagkain sa paborito niyang Chinese restaurant, di nya in-expect na paglabas niya ng kwarto may pinadala kaming decor at cakes para sa kanya. May videos rin galing sa mga kaibigan at pamilya namin, tapos pagbukas niya ng link sa Zoom lahat kami nasa Zoom party na,” she said.
