Hundreds of fans were left speechless when Ford, a member of BoyBandPH, showed his gentlemanliness towards Sandara Park during their recent concert in Manila.
The former 2NE1 member is currently in the Philippines to promote her movie "One Step." But despite her hectic schedule, Sandara spared some time to attend the boy group's show over the weekend.
According to Koreaboo, BoyBandPH's Ford immediately approached the K-pop idol after seeing her from the crowd. The Filipino singer then gave Sandara a big hug and kissed her hand which was a shocker for the ex-2NE1 member.
Sandara and Ford first met in a reality singing contest called "Pinoy Boyband Superstar" where the Korean celebrity appeared as one of the judges and the latter as one of the contestants.
From a diverse pool of hopefuls, only five contestants were chosen to form BoyBandPH. Ford along with Joao, Niel, Tristan, and Russell were the lucky ones to win the competition and debut under Star Magic and Star Music.
Ford's recent interaction with Sandara caught the attention of the netizens who are curious about their closeness. Some are cheering for the two, while others thought the encounter has something to do with G-Dragon's Instagram post.
Shortly after the video of Ford and Sandara's meeting went viral, the BIGBANG idol updated his account with an explicit photo which the netizens interpreted as his response on the matter.
The two K-pop idols attracted dating rumors for their skinship at BIGBANG's concert last year. Earlier reports stated G-Dragon was seen holding Sandara close to him while on their way out of the concert venue.
The female idol, however, shut down these claims and clarified that she would never date a workmate. Allkpop cited the former 2NE1 member revealed it was G-Dragon's idea to put on a show.
"As a public relations representative, I went to BIGBANG's concert, and we were on the way to our after party. G-Dragon said, "It's just a concept," and put his arm around me as we went," Sandara explained.
