K-Pop stars and Filipino personalities have once again come together to give fans a sneak peek into what can happen when these cultures collide. But also, to make a newly turned 17 year old happy on her most special day.
Manny Pacquiao, affectionately known as “PacMan” among Filipinos, is a living legend in the world of professional boxing. With numerous titles and accolades to his name, he has earned his place among the greatest boxers of all time. Not only has he left an indelible mark on the sports world, but he has also ventured into politics, serving as a Senator of the Philippines from 2016 to 2022.
Being a man of such stature, Pacquiao made sure to make his daughter’s 17th birthday party an unforgettable experience, by inviting the one and only, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk.
It’s not known if the Super Junior star’s appearance was due to him being a close family friend, or whether he was invited by the Pacquiao’s to make the evening more special. One thing is certain though, Eunhyuk definitely brought the party to the event.
Throughout the evening, Eunhyuk was seen in various Instagram Story videos posted by Jinkee Pacquiao, capturing heartwarming moments of the celebration. One particularly touching moment featured Eunhyuk cheering Princess and her sister Queenie as they sang “Killing Me Softly With His Song.” It was a heartfelt display of unity and joy as Eunhyuk joined in the merriment, showcasing the universal language of music that transcends borders.
But Eunhyuk’s contributions didn’t stop there. The multitalented artist also took the stage to serenade the birthday girl with a rendition of “As Long As You Love Me.” As he sang his heart out, Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao could be seen swaying to the music, basking in the love and warmth of the moment. Eunhyuk’s powerful vocals and charismatic stage presence undoubtedly added an extra layer of charm to an already unforgettable evening.
