Jillian Robredo had a “fangirl” moment as she saw the hit K-pop group NCT 127 in the airport with her mom Vice President Leni Robredo and sisters Aika and Tricia on Sunday, May 15.
Kakie Pangilinan shared the news on Twitter and wrote in all caps: “JILL JUST SENT ME PICS OF NCT 127??? THE ROBREDOS JUST CASUALLY SAW THEM AT THE AIRPORT??? WHAT IS THIS ALTERNATE DIMENSION????”
Jillian, for her part, posted a video of her sighting of the boy band as soon as she and her family landed in the United States for her graduation from New York University. “Sharing my blessings,” she tweeted.

Kakie has gotten close to the Robredos during the political campaign of their parents, who were running mates for the 2022 national elections. Vice President Leni Robredo ran for president, while Senator Kiko Pangilinan tried his luck at securing a vice-presidential seat for the next term.
Both, however, lost to the UniTeam tandem of presumptive president Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. and presumptive vice president Sara Duterte, according to the Comelec’s partial tally.
