The performance of Belle Mariano in the hit series He's Into Her gains an international recognition.
The Kapamilya actress wins the Outstanding Asian Star 2022 award at the 17th Seoul International Drama Awards, as confirmed by Belle's talent management Rise Artists Studio.
In an Instagram post on Monday, September 5, 2022, the caption reads, "Congrats Belle for winning the 'OUTSTANDING ASIAN STAR 2022' in the Seoul International Drama Awards. Rise Fam is very proud of you!"
After a month-long voting period on the Idol Champ application, the He's Into Her lead star was hailed as the Philippine winner along with four other Asian artists: China's Wallace Chung, Japan's Yusei Yagi, Taiwan's Alice Ko, and Thailand's Krit Amnuaydechkrorn.
She bested 175 male and female actors from Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan, and the Philippines.
Among the Filipino nominees in the category were Belle’s on-screen partner Donny Pangilinan, as well as their fellow Kapamilya artists Charlie Dizon, Dimples Romana, Jake Cuenca, Maris Racal, Kaila Estrada, and Zanjoe Marudo.
Dubbed as the “New Gen Phenomenal Love Team” of the Philippines, Belle and Donny rose to fame in the hit teen series He’s Into Her. Their DonBelle love team steadily gained traction in the 2021 romantic-comedy Love Is Color Blind.
They are set to star in the upcoming film An Inconvenient Love helmed by Petersen Vargas.
The film will mark Star Cinema’s major comeback to cinemas this year.
