Pia Wurtzbach is getting some attention because of her backstage solo picture with Super Junior member Siwon Choi. She has been an avid fangirl of the K-Pop star since 2009.

The Miss Universe of 2015 went to the concert of the K-Pop group on June 30 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, where she got recognized by Siwon himself.

Reports note that during the concert, Siwon shouted, “Pia’s here!” He also requested for his fans to give her a bottle of water.

The beauty queen then shared a picture with the K-Pop star, captioning it with “Finally! A true fan girl moment for me!” and tagging Siwon’s official account.

What went before

Nine years ago, Pia openly showed how much she adored the Super Junior member in separate tweets. On July 13, 2009, the beauty queen tagged a certain Twitter user and jokingly wrote that she is “Mrs. Siwon Choi.”

On July 16, Pia tweeted something that sent her and Siwon’s fans in a frenzy.

The fact that she placed the tweet within quotation marks suggested that it might be a fantasy inspired by her fangirl moment.

On July 17, the beauty queen tagged three male personalities that she described as her “type,” mentioning Siwon first.

Hours after, she replied to a Twitter user who asked her about Siwon, saying that he’s “good… and hot.”

By 2015, the K-Pop star finally took notice and congratulated her for winning the Miss Universe title. He also invited her to guest in “Super Show,” a series of world tour concerts by the group.

Reports quote him saying on social media:

“Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach 🙂 Heartfelt Congratulations on your Miss Universe 2015 Award, and please be my guest for next SUPERSHOW! Looking forward to seeing you shining the world :^”

Fast forward to 2018 and Pia has already managed to catch one of the group’s “Super Shows.”

Siwon, apart from being a member of Super Junior, is also a singer at its subgroup Super Junior-M — a seven-member group that caters to the Chinese music industry.

He has also appeared in several Korean dramas as well, namely “Oh! My Lady,” “Poseidon,” “Athena: Goddess of War,” “The King of Dramas,” “She Was Pretty” and “Revolutionary Love.”

Siwon has been listed by Kore Asian Media as one of the Asian celebrities who would make “amazing boyfriends” because the star is “known for his strong faith, his heroic deeds… and his undeniable kindness.”
