Philippines OMG! featured the hilarious blog "My Korean Boyfriend," its latest video blog titled "How to Get a Korean Boyfriend" went viral with more than 325,000 views to date. Coverage about the viral video appeared on popular Korean news sites Nate, TV Daily, Paran, Newsen, Chosun, Naver and Daum. Aside from Korean sites, Yahoo! Japan has also posted the video!

"How to Get a Korean Boyfriend" stars blogger Kring Elenzano and her friend Cherish Maningat-Bae, the Filipina who headlined the Korean musical "ArirangFantasy." The delightful video features Kring speaking in English while her friend Cherish (who married a Korean) speaks in Korean. What makes the video fun is the fact that the girls dish out their "advice" while poking fun at each other, role playing, and interspersing popular K-Pop music and personalities like Super Junior and 2NE1 in their video.
