MANILA, Philippines — Korean stars Dara and Nam Joo Hyuk flashed more than just finger hearts as they spent Sunday with thousands of adoring fans at a fan convention hosted by Penshoppe.

Dara, who has endeared herself to Filipino fans as reality-based talent search contestant Sandara Park, came back home as one of Penshoppe’s endorsers.

Dara has since gained worldwide popularity as one of the now-defunct four-piece 2NE1. She is currently showing off her variety and hosting skills at various shows in Korea.

She came with fellow YG Entertainment star, model and actor Nam Joo Hyuk who rose to popularity as a romantic actor lead in Korean dramas Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo and Bride of Habaek.

Fans spent their Sunday getting to know the two Korean stars through a sit-down interview with the hosts plus some trivia games. Lucky fans also got to play and interact with the two in various games, like a drama re-enactment game.

The fancon also featured performances from DJ Tom Taus, Keiko Necessario, IV of Spades, and Club Penshoppe ambassadors Khalil Ramos, Maris Racal, Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio.
