MANILA, PHILIPPINES — It was certainly a memorable night for Kapamilya actress Andrea Brillantes as her placard was noticed by the K-pop global sensation Blackpink asking her boyfriend Ricci Rivero to be her date for the upcoming Star Magic prom on March 30.
On Sunday, March 26, the K-pop girl group kicked off their two-night concert in the Philippines at the Philippine Arena, Bulacan.
The young CEO of Lucky Beauty, Brillantes, and the basketball star Rivero were two of the thousands of Filo Blinks who watched the second night of Blackpink’s concert.
Andrea’s banner was first spotted by Blackpink’s main vocalist Rosé during the portion of the show where they talk to fans and give their messages.
“Please go to prom with that girl,” said Rosé, who then read the sign, “Just want to ask Ricci Rivero, will you go to prom with Andrea?”
The “Kadenang Ginto” star received a nodding ‘yes’ and a hug from her boyfriend as a response to her invitation.
The main dancer and lead rapper, Lisa, then extended her warmest congratulations to the two stars.
The two-night show marks the girl group’s third visit to the Philippines.
