Both stars attended the Eternals world premiere on October 18th. During Angelina Jolie’s red carpet interview with Variety, Ma Dong Seok popped in to say hello. She couldn’t have been happier to see him!

“I miss you so much. You look gorgeous, as always,” Ma Dong Seok told his co-star. “We can’t say what’s in the movie,” she replied. “but I love that we were able to do the movie together.” 

A moment later, the stars peaced out to greet more friends…

…leaving the poor reporter hanging! His reaction is hilariously relatable. If you’ve ever attended a party with a social butterfly, you probably know the feeling!
