When Hallyu Wave invaded the Philippines, nagtatago marahil si Joy sa kuweba. Wala kasi siyang ideya na ang Korean na na-assign sa kanya bilang personal assistant nito sa mga araw na ipamamalagi nito sa Pilipinas ay isang sikat ng K-Pop Idol.
Iyon ang araw na babago sa normal na buhay ni Joy. At matatagpuan niya na pati ang puso niya ay na-invade na rin ng K-Pop Idol na ito. Guguluhin nito ang buong pagkatao niya. She’d be living a fairytale that every fangirl had ever dreamed of.
Pero posible kayang ma-fall ang isang Prince Charming sa ambisyosang frog?
As if we Filipinos can’t get enough of K-Pop, it even invaded our literature. Yes, you read the cover right. The K-Pop Star and I is indeed a “Koreanobela”. A crazy one, it is. Don’t think of Joy Natividad as a stereotype character based on the book title. She is not a hallyu fanatic at all. She is just a victim of fate… like all heroines who meet the love of their lives unexpectedly.
I hesitated at first to grab a copy but told myself that is for the love and support for Filipino writers. There are lots of funny moments from the book and I can’t help but giggle as I thought that it’s too impossible to stop your infatuation for a guy who already made girls from all over Asia swoon and worship… plus the fact that his breath smelled like Skittles. And what’s even more impossible? K-Pop star falling for nerdy P.A? Not quite. ^__^
