She has danced on the Ellen DeGeneres' Show and appeared in the U.S. television series Riverdale.


AC said in a media virtual conference last November 4, 2021, "Blackpink has definitely been a big, big, big influence on my life."

Blackpink is a South Korean pop sensation taking the music world by storm.

The all-girl K-Pop group has over 40 million Instagram followers, five Guinness World Records, and a historic MTV Video Music Awards triumph.

In July of 2020, AC was the runner-up in Blackpink's and YG Entertainment's official dance cover contest.

Premium Dance Studio of South Korea came in first, with B-Wild of Vietnam coming in third.

Surprised by Blackpink's recognition, AC exclaimed on Twitter, "I don't know what to do!"

On October 2021, International choreographer Kiel Tutin praised AC's dance rendition of K-pop diva Lisa's "Money," calling her performance "mind-blowing."

When Tutin published footage her dance cover on his Instagram Story on October 25, 2021, he included mind-blown and fire emojis.

AC further said at the mediacon, “When I wasn’t in the industry yet, I thought dance was just going to become a side hobby for me.

"I didn’t think it would become my full-time [job], but when I got into the industry, it made me realize how much more passionate I am about performing and the art.

"And how much I enjoy seeing the smiles on other people’s faces—it heals me.

“Basta nasa stage ako, at nag-perform ako, at nakita ko na yung mga tao—mga ACnatics [fans] ko na nag-i-smile na, and they’re enjoying, and they’re screaming for me—it’s like everything in the world is just good.”

This 18-year-old dancer, actor, host, YouTuber is now a singer leading the pack of Star Magic Records artists to watch for.

About her debut track "Fool No Mo," AC said, "[My latest single] is showing a different side of me.

"My fierce and more girly side of me versus what a lot of people have seen na parang very hip-hop, very boyish because that’s what I grew up in.”

She also expressed her wish for an opportunity to work with Blackpink and exhibit her "fierce and extremely girly side" with them.

As well, AC happens to be friends with Sorn of CLC, a Thai K-pop girl group that is another TikTok sensation.

She said, “Me and Sorn, we are online friends. She’s so nice, she’s so talented, it’s an honor to be friends with a K-pop idol.

"She is amazing, we’re still friends, we still talk and hopefully after ng pandemic, I get to visit her or maybe she can come visit us dito sa Pinas.”
