70-year-old ‘plantita’ celebrates her birthday with a Park Seo-joon themed party

Netizens and K-drama fans all over the world were delighted to see a Facebook post showing a party themed after their favorite ‘Oppa’ Park Seo-joon.

Aurelia “Batch” Galarrita, a lawyer and “plantita“, celebrated her 70th birthday party in her home with life-size standees of the Korean heartthrob, PSJ plant pots, and cupcakes.

Her daughter Mel shared that even though there were no guests at her fun-filled party, Batch’s loved ones were on a Zoom call and was really happy with the birthday surprise.

“No guests since March, but don’t worry, family and friends were all on Zoom partying with her with PSJ virtual backdrops 😂 Kudos to my brother Carlo for being there with her everyday to make sure her internet is topnotch, otherwise, [shocked emoji]. My brother Paolo paid for the staff who setup the decor and bought food, and also edited a beautiful tribute video for her from everyone who loves her around the world. So yes, she was super happy!” Mel wrote.


Mel revealed that her mom studied Hangul, or the Korean language, while on lockdown so she can talk with the Itaewon Class star if they’d ever meet in the future.

A senior citizen, Batch is not allowed to go out unless it’s emergency during the mandated lockdown in the Philippines, so she learned more about K-dramas.

“She really is [70-year-old]. Senior [citizen] priority lane. For the Filipino fans – sorry nagcut si momshie, pagbigyan na,” Mel quipped.
