Watch two of Filipino’s fast rising stars join the Hallyu Wave through their special appearance on a SBS drama
MANILA PHILIPPINES, October 10, 2018— Filipinos are truly gifted in many forms of entertainment. Whether it be dancing, singing, sports or acting, we get recognized for our talents all over the world!
Remember when we saw Jake Zyrus, born as Charice Pempengco, ‘wow-ing’ Koreans celebrities and hosts when he sang Whitney Houston’s hit track “And I’m telling you, I’m not going” in Korean variety show Star King? Everyone was left at awe by his performance and as his fellow Filipinos, we couldn’t help but feel super proud, too!
This time around, we get another taste of PinoyPride in the Hallyu scene from last night’s episode of SBS’ Fox Bride Star, more popularly known as Where Stars Land. In this episode, we see not one but TWO incredible actors showing PinoyPride through their heartfelt acting and delivery of lines in Tagalog and we are living for it! We couldn’t be more proud of Ejay Falcon and Lauren Young for their special appearance!
Ejay Falcon is a French-Filipino model-turned actor, and also the winner of Pinoy Big Brother-Teen Edition Plus (2008). He has been acting in various roles on local series and shows. Don’t be fooled by his innocent looks, Ejay has been showcasing his talent for acting for quite some time now and seeing last night’s episode of Fox Bride Star makes us want to see more of his acting!
We also can’t get over how outstanding Lauren Young’s performance was! Lauren Young is a Filipino-American actress, model and younger sister to actress and Miss World 2013, Megan Young; talent definitely runs in their family. Lauren has played major roles in various local drama series and movies for major broadcasting networks in the Philippines.
Korean dramas bring us so much life these days and we can’t deny how much we love watching them! As a Filipino, watching our two Pinoy talents showcasing their acting to deliver the emotional scene made our blood rush and our hearts pound with every line.
