Over a thousand excited fans trooped over to Smart Araneta Coliseum last May 29 to witness the first KPOP concert in the country in 2 years.
The aptly named “Begin Again: KPOP Edition 2022” show was treated with palpable energy from concert-goers of all ages. This was after all, the first music event featuring international artists at the Big Dome in a while. Bearing their respective lightsticks and fan paraphernalia, the crowd from the event were truly brimming with delight as they welcome onstage South Korean artists Alice, Wei, NCT Dream, and SHINee’s Key.
The evening was met with back to back to back serving of eye-popping visuals and enthralling performances. First time to perform at the Araneta Coliseumstage, Alice kicked off the show with their brand of cute tracks and precise choreography. Their set proved to be a valiant first showing to their Pinoy fans.
Next up was WEi who dropped select cuts from their latest release – “Love Pt.1:First Love”. The six-member boy group entertained the evening with their fierce take on the genre as well as their member’s antics playing fun games onstage.
Third to take over The Big Dome was Jeno, Renjun, Chenle, Jaemin and Jisung of NCT Dream. Fresh from the release of their multi-million selling album, “Glitch Mode”, NCT Dream exploded with dynamism as they embarked on their return to meet their adoring Pinoy fans.
To cap off the night was Key who unlocked the hearts of the fans with his performance. The lead dancer and rapper of SHINee showed that he can definitely hold his own regard as a solo act.
What a night! What a triumph way to start huge live shows again. Truly, a memorable return to Manila’s concert scene.
