“Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo” star, South Korean actress Lee Sung-kyung openly admitted that’s she’s a big fan of Filipino award-winning broadway singer Lea Salonga.
This adorable revelation happened when she posted a comment on Salonga’s Instagram post. On June 20, the original “A Whole New World” singer shared a video of Sung-kyung singing the iconic song.
“This is adorable! Isn’t she a Disney Princess?” Salonga wrote.
In response, the Korean actress revealed that the Tony-award winning actress is her inspiration on singing the Aladdin theme song.
“I am so thankful and honored Lea! I’ve been practicing listening to you! You are inspirational and I love you so much!”
Salonga then replied, saying that she and her mom are fans of Sung-kyung’s show. “Awww thank you! My mom and I are fans of yours from Weightlifting fairy. Thank you for those many hours of entertainment! We love the show and you in it!” she said.
Sung-kyung is here in the Philippines for her “Be Joyful” fan meet. She’s set to meet her Filipino fans on Saturday, July 27, at the SM Skydome, Quezon City.
