The Ws continue for Kathryn Bernardo now that she becomes the second-ever Filipina to win Outstanding Asian Star.
2023 is a big year for Kathryn Bernardo as she has not one, not two, but three movies in the works. This September, Kath and Dolly de Leon will unleash their joint slay in A Very Good Girl, later on, she has the historical drama Elena 1944, and let’s not forget the long-awaited but still untitled KathNiel film. And that’s on top of other projects she has in the works. Clearly, Kath is staying booked and busy. But if that wasn’t enough, the superstar received the latest international award of her career, and it’s her biggest to date.
ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL AWARD IN THE BAG
Recently, it was announced that Kathryn was named Outstanding Asian Star at the Seoul International Drama Awards, representing the Philippines. It can be remembered that she was nominated for the award alongside Daniel Padilla, Barbie Forteza, Dennis Trillo, and Julie Anne San Jose. It was tough competition, to say the least, but after fans voted on Idolchamp from June 15 to July 14, Kathryn came out on top.
Kathryn Bernardo is no stranger to being internationally recognized, with awards from Vietnam at the Face of the Year Awards and even a Kids’ Choice Award in 2019 for Favorite Trending Pinoy. But her win at the Seoul International Drama Awards represents one of the biggest wins of her career given the caliber of the award and the company she will join, both in the Philippines and internationally.
In fact, with her win, Kathryn becomes the second Filipina and second Kapamilya actress in history to win the accolade, with Belle Mariano being the first when she won it last year. Of course, let’s also not discard the effort of her fans for voting for her for the award as they made known their belief that Kath deserved to win it. More than a decade into her career, Kathryn Bernardo continues to stay winning, as she should.
The 18th edition of the Seoul International Drama Awards will be on September 21, with Kath confirmed to attend the event in Seoul to accept the award in person. You can bet we’ll be ready then to see what she’ll be wearing, and maybe break in the internet in the process.
