PARK SHIN HYE’S MANILA VISIT
#Bencheveryday press conference July 27, 2017 makati shangri-la hotel
South Korean actress Park Shin Hye, who is known for her roles in The Heirs and Doctor
Crush, two popular K-dramas (Korean dramas), was seen out and about in Manila last July. The actress was in the country for the Manila leg of her “Flower of Angel” fan meet and concert tour, held last July 28 at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
A day before the concert, Shin Hye also spoke to the media at a press conference held at the Makati ShangriLa Hotel. The presscon was organized by Bench, the local lifestyle brand she endorses. Speaking in Korean, Shin Hye thanked her Filipino fans for the warmth and support they have given her over the past few years.
That warmth and support must be why she keeps coming back—this was her third visit to the country!

A South Korean who has been living in the Philippines for more than 20 years, Sam can speak English and Filipino but is still fluent in her native Korean. She translated Shin Hye’s answers into English for the benefit of the audience.
Bench founder Ben Chan, who is present at most of the lifestyle brand’s press conferences, went up the stage to greet Shin Hye.
