Television host and radio personality Grace Lee (born Lee Kyung Hee / 이경희), a Korean expatriate who’s spent the last eighteen years in the Philippines, has landed on the cover of the May-June 2012 issue of LOOK Magazine Philippines.
In her interview with LOOK for their feature article, she talks at length about events in her interesting and jam-packed life before and after her romance this year with President Benigno Aquino III. In the PD Inquirer Lifestyle article excerpt below, she shares about being a translator while in college and interviewing a newly debuted Rain in that capacity, when he came to the Philippines for a photo shoot. Not only that, she also interviewed him the last time he was in Manila (for Fugitive: Plan B filming and the Intensity concert, I believe? Somebody help me out!), lucky lady.
A beautiful woman with a fun sense of humor. Nice article. GREAT cover!

Korean by birth but a Filipina at heart, Grace Lee enjoys shopping, beauty products and the attention of one pop superstar
While Grace was in high school and college, she worked as translator for visiting Korean dignitaries, including pop superstar Rain, who flew in for a shoot in the country.
“He wasn’t as huge then as he is now,” she recounted. “We were together for three days. Nobody knew him, and he was able to walk around Manila in peace. With my mom as chaperone, I took Rain to Malate. I showed him the bars and restaurants there. He’s a nice guy.”
When Rain returned to Manila recently, Grace was assigned to interview him again. “My mom went with me. At the press conference, my mom waved at him from afar and Rain stood up to greet her. He remembered me. He kept looking at me. In my mind, I thought it was because I was pretty,” she joked.
