Young, on the other hand, posted a photo of herself showing off her OOTD (that’s outfit of the day for the unaware) before IKEA shopping.

She wrote: “Quick OOTD before we head out to enjoy our free day since we don’t have taping today! First stop… IKEA! Then maybe head to Gangnam and Myeongdong.”

Young also tweeted that her first taping day was yesterday.

According to CNN Philippines, the 40-episode show is about the lives of the employees of Incheon International Airport. Aside from Lee, the show will also star Chae Soo-bin. It will air on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The Philippine Entertainment Portal reported that Falcon and Young will be back in the Philippines on Sept. 22.

SBS is famous for producing hit Korean dramas like While You Were Sleeping (2017), My Love from the Star (2013), and Secret Garden (2010).

Many Filipinos are huge fans of Korean dramas and pop culture, which is why Falcon and Young’s cameos are a big deal.

The appearance of Korean stars in Manila are met with a lot of fanfare and it’s not uncommon for young fans to save up for months just so they could afford tickets for meet-and-greets.
