    Her nationality is Filipino-American. She’s purely Filipino and acquired her American citizenship due to naturalization but she said she does have some Chinese blood.

  • me

    just asking…. if she has some Chinese blood, isn’t that mean she isn’t purely Filipino? @[email protected]

  • Mingyu’s wifeu

    In one live concert event(i think its kpop festival?) in the PH, she said that she was born in makati?

  • Diether Espedes Tario II

    I think she’s not the first filipino who become a kpop idol. I think its Wei yang former member of O21.

  • Akito

    Wei Yang is not purely Filipino!
    “Wei Yang (웨이양)” is a Chinese-Filipino singer and member of South Korean girl group 021 under FNC China.”

  • Diether Espedes Tario II

    And kriesha is not pure filipino, right ? So I think Wei Yang is the first 🙂

  • Min Ditan

  • Charlie

    Neither is Kriesha… She’s Chinese-Filipino as well. It’s obvious enough in her surname + she doesn’t look Filipino. If she’s anything like my family (which is also Chinese-Filipino) then she’s probably pure Chinese too because our families tend to want us to marry other Chinese people.

  • synavarro

    Cebuano is a Philippine dialect (not a language)
    It’s more appropriate to use Filipino language instead of Tagalog because Filipino along with English are the official languages of the Philippines.

  • Geraldine J. Soldevilla

    She is a fan of “KathNiel” Loveteam =)


  • Charlie

    Cebuano is not considered a dialect, but rather a full independent language. Dialects are branches of language (i.e. the Tagalog in the Quezon province vs the Tagalog in Bulacan) while languages are defined by who understands it (i.e. despite the differences in dialect, someone from Quezon and someone from Bulacan can still hold a conversation in Tagalog due to it being more or less the same language)

    Someone from Manila who only speaks Filipino, however, would not be able to understand someone speaking to them in Cebuano. Thus, Cebuano is not a dialect of Filipino, or any other Philippine language.

    Also, yes, Tagalog is not the same as Filipino. Most of Filipino’s vocabulary comes from Tagalog, yes, but they aren’t considered the same language. (some even argue that Filipino should be a dialect of Tagalog, but that’s a whole other story)


    Kriesha speaks Filipino, English, Korean, and Cebuano. ahem sorry for going full lecture mode but this got drilled into my head by teachers and now i feel the need to educate everyone who gets it wrong plsdontthinkimbeingrudeimsorry
