AC Bonifacio just claimed the second prize in the K-pop girl group Blackpink’s How You Like That global dance cover contest.
Winning teams were announced on Blackpink’s Instagram page on Tuesday.
“We would like to congratulate all five teams, and once again thank everyone who participated!,” read the girl group’s Instagram post.
In an Instagram story, AC and her team were elated upon learning the news.
“IDK what to do. The whole team and I are together crying. I don’t know what to do,” AC wrote in her IG story.
Friends and fans of the young performer also took to social media to congratulate her for her achievement.
In a lengthy Instagram post, AC also spoke about the experience and challenges of doing the dance cover.
She said, “This cover meant SO SO MUCH TO ME because before this, a lot was being said about me and I wanted to back off cause I’m human, I get hurt and I was scared of what people would say. But we all pushed thru because we absolutely love Blackpink.”
She added, “My heart is so full and I’m on a roller coaster of emotions right now BUT THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART 😭🖤💖 this is for all of us.”
Her solo dance video, which was released earlier this month, currently has three million views on YouTube.
