BTS has one of the most diverse fanbases, and it’s filled with successful artists and celebrities from all over the world. From American singer Lizzo, Korean athlete Shin Yubin, British artist Olly Alexander, and Indonesian content creator Arief Muhammad, they are proudly showcasing their ARMY status with fans!
The latest star to share their love for the group is Filipina actress and model Belle Mariano (also known as Belinda Angelito Mariano), who recently revealed who her bias in BTS is during an interview!
Mariano began her career at the age of 9, oftentimes playing supporting roles and starring in the sketch comedy series Goin’ Bulilt. Her rise to fame was for the children’s series Lorenzo’s Time. After that, she played the younger versions of the main characters in several TV shows and dramas. She has recently starred in critically acclaimed prime-time TV series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and rom-com He’s Into Her.
In a “25 Questions” interview for ABS-CBN Star Cinema, Mariano answered various questions while giving a tour of ABS-CBN Studios. She talked about her costars, TikTok, and what she looks for in a potential significant other. She listed three things specifically…
Someone who is passionate, has a good sense of humor, and simple.
— Belle Mariano
The interviewer followed up the question by asking her who her celebrity crush is, and it came as no surprise that she confessed it was BTS’s maknae Jungkook! Her love for him is clearly genuine as her face immediately lit up as she said his name and couldn’t help but giggle while answering.
Jungkook! (giggles) I feel like everyone knows that!
— Belle Mariano
When asked if she believes in love at first sight, she said, “Yes” without hesitation. And, when it comes to a “perfect date,” she would like to go somewhere in nature for a picnic. We can all relate to her!
She’s also been a dedicated ARMY for years! She has even tweeted about BTS, especially Jungkook and V since 2017.
It’s not uncommon to see her in the comment replies of BTS posts either.
