Even celebrities get starstruck once a while.

Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza shared the stage with South Korean heartthrob Lee Min-ho at a concert in Kuala Lumpur last night (Oct 1). They were at Axiata Arena for Cuckoo's Appreci8th Anniversary Concert. Other Malaysian artistes who performed included Dolla, Khai Bahar, Aina Abdul, Jaclyn Victor, Datuk Jamal Abdillah and Misha Omar.

Being a fan of Lee, Siti wanted a selfie with the Pachinko star but photo with him was not allowed unless taken by an official photographer.

"Security is usually tight for international artiste such as @actorleeminho. Everything has to be in accordance with his management and no photos are allowed unless it is taken by the official photographer.

"But once I was on stage (with Lee) I wasn't going to let go of the golden opportunity to take a selfie with him," Siti wrote in an Instagram post today (Oct 2).

Armed with courage and a mobile phone in hand, the resourceful singer asked KC Hoe, the founder and CEO of Cuckoo – who was also on stage – if she could get a selfie with Lee.

Hoe agreed. And so did Lee.

"Like lightning speed, my finger started clicking and I snapped away. Mission accomplished!" wrote Siti who posted several photos and a video of her encounter with Lee.

Celebrities, they are just like us.

The Star's Malay-language portal, mStar reported that Lee told media backstage that he was happy to be back in Malaysia. The 35-year-old last visited our country in 2016.

"Time flies fast and it has been six years since I was last here. I am happy to be back to Malaysia. Each time I come to Malaysia, I feel strengthened, at ease and humbled

"As soon as I got out of the airport, I saw so many fans and they were shouting 'I miss you', I felt so touched," Lee said adding that he finds Malaysian fans to be sweet and energetic.
