The Philippines’s first ever Olympic Gold Medalist since 1924, Weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz is actually a Korean drama fan!
Hidilyn is following Song Hye Kyo (from “Descendants Of The Sun”), Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun (from “The King: Eternal Monarch”), Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jung Hyun (from “Mr. Queen”), Park Min Young (from “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?”), and Kim Hye Yoon (from “Extraordinary You”) on her official Instagram account. Plus, according to some Minoz (Lee Min Ho’s fan club), she’s also actually a Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun shipper!
Yesterday, July 26, the athlete bagged the gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics today for the women’s 55-kg weightlifting event. This marks the country first gold medal win after 96-97 years.
Congratulations to our very own Weightlifting Fairy!
