One such viewer is a 74-year-old halmoni from the Philippines. In our Dear Oppa letter, Rosemarie Dinio penned a letter to Hyun Bin, expressing her love for the actor. She hopes that to meet him someday and take a selca. 

Read her letter below: 

Dear Hyun Bin

I am a 74 grandma from the Philippines with 3 grown, married children and 3 grandkids.

I was never a fan of KDramas. When I travelled to Seoul, So. Korea and visited Nami Island in 2011, I was unaware of the allure of Korean dramas. But because I saw pictures of Winter Sonata all over Nami, I watched the series when I got home and that was it.

Until the lockdown happened and I had a lot of time in my hands. Because enthusiasts were raving about Crash Landing on You, I decided to watch and I was hooked. It was my first time to fangirl over a Korean actor. Captain Ri made me swoon, I loved his dimples, his handsome looks and his reserved character, but mostly I loved how he cared for Seri.  Because you Hyun Bin captivated me, I watched Kim Sam Soon, Secret Garden, Hyde, Jekyl and me, Memories of the Alhambra, and watched CLOY all over again.

CLOY turned me into a KDrama fan. And though I swooned over Park Seo Joon, Park Bo Gum, Gong Yoo and lately Kim Seonho, you will always be my number 1. Someday, if I get lucky to go back to Seoul, I hope I get to meet you and get that selfie.

Rosemarie Dinio

Same here..CLOY is also my first ever KDrama. Since then i have not stopped watching Koreans shows...variety, game shows, dramas, movies etc. The production and creative people of KBS, SBS and TVN etc are all so amazing! Will not get tired of what they can offer us to be entertained and learn something at the same time ❤

I can relate with Rosemarie Dinio because CLOY was also my first Kdrama and I love Hyun Bin very much. I have never been this crazy about any actor before. I hope to see him someday too but I do not live in Asia. Hope Hyun Bin will have a fan meeting in the USA.
