Filipina actress Kim Chiu is one lucky fangirl! The actress, known for her roles in TV shows like Tayong Dalawa (2009), movies like Bride for Rent (2014), and her YouTube and variety show appearances, has taken to TikTok to express her love for K-Pop.
She was noticed by one of her favorite groups on March 15 when ITZY‘s official TikTok account released a duet with her old dance video. Yuna reacted to Kim’s October 2021 cover of their song “SWIPE” from their Crazy in Love album. The video raked in over 250,000 likes in just four hours.
The video opened with Yuna expressing her surprise at the Filipina actress’ energetic moves.
They jammed together to the chorus of “SWIPE.”
