‘Good boy’ Kim Seon Ho gifts fans with a memorable night in Manila at UFC-presented fan meet in PH

Our favorite good boy Kim Seon Ho successfully wrapped up his fan meet ‘COLOR+FULL’ on April 13 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Visiting the country for the third time, the ‘Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha’ actor painted smiles on fans’ faces as he graced the stage and serenaded them with a song.

The dimple prince further ignited the crowd’s cheers as he expressed in tagalog words, “Hello po. Ako po si Kim Seon Ho. Kamusta po kayo? Sana mag-enjoy tayong lahat.”

“It’s been four months since my last visit, you guys are always greeting me happily. I’m really grateful,” he went on.

Seon Ho enthusiastically responded to funny and intimate questions from Pinoy fans during the fan meet, giving them a candid conversation.

The actor revealed some interesting facts about his name, which turned out to be more meaningful than we thought, as “Seon” means “generous” and “Ho” stands for “courageous.”

Seonhohadas (Seon Ho’s fans) also almost had the chance to give him an English name, with them jokingly suggesting “Boyet.”

Speaking of his affection for dogs, Seon Ho said that if he were reborn as an animal, he remarked he would choose to be one, “I want to be transformed into a dog. I actually have a pet dog, and I want to communicate with him.”

The “Start Up” star further made the audience giggle as he recreated some poses of the Seonho-ticons (Seonho emoticons) made by fans.

Lucky fans also had the opportunity to play and interact with the actor on stage, and they even posed for a Polaroid photo.

They played a telepathy game, the tongue twister Pinoy version, and the popular native sport in the Philippines, sipa.

Seon Ho’s delivery of the known Pinoy tongue twister “Siopao, siomai, Suman” wowed the audience.

The fan meet was made much more delightful by ‘It’s Showtime’ host Ryan Bang, who created a cheerful and humorous atmosphere throughout the night.

“Kahit nabubulol siya kilig na kilig kayo, ‘no? Sana all!” he said teasingly.

Later in the event, Seon Ho showed off his culinary skills by making a fried rice dish with UFC’s Fun Chow Korean-style Rice Mixes, where he was also introduced as the newest endorser of UFC as the latter launched their new products inspired by Korean flavors.

For Seon Ho’s upcoming birthday, supporters organized a lovely video project to celebrate his day in advance. There were love and hope-filled sentiments throughout the slide from fans worldwide.

“You guys are the first celebrants of my birthday. I will keep and treasure your precious hearts going back to Korea,” he claimed.

I’ll make sure I’ll be a colorful actor who shows various charms to you, guys. I am very thankful and very happy. Salamat po,” and bid the fans farewell with one final song.

The fan meeting was presented by UFC and MakeitLive.
