‘Mahal kita’: Umbrella Academy star surprises Filipinos with response to Neflix’s b-day greeting

“The Umbrella Academy” star Justin Min can apparently speak Filipino.

The 31-year-old actor celebrated his birthday on March 20 and Netflix Philippines greeted him by sharing four photos of him taken from the superhero series.

“Happy birthday to my one and only bebe, @justinhmin. Always celebrating you (birthday cake emoji) Ilysm,” the streaming giant tweeted.

Min saw the tweet and responded: “Mahal kita. Tara labas tayo minsan.”

His tweet in Filipino has reached 4,500 likes and 1,100 retweets on the microblogging platform.

The streaming giant quipped in return: “Paalam ka muna sa parents ko (winking emoji).”

It was not the first time that Min interacted with the account in Filipino. In September, Netflix Philippines released two stills with the implication that it found Min’s character cute.

Min responded: “Don’t make me kilig.”

The American-Korean actor plays the character of Ben Hargreeves on the popular Netflix series.
