A sea of cheers and pearl aqua light sticks filled the MOA Arena last January 28 to herald the fan meet of SHINee member, Choi Min-ho. Better known as Minho, the South Korean singer, screen actor and songwriter entertained his adoring fans for over 120 minutes with music, missions and must-know new trivia about the man of the hour.

“It’s been a while and it’s making my heart flutter”, shares the heartthrob. And the years not seeing Minho onstage was evident as his fans were very receptive to his stage antics together with local host, Sam Oh. From wearing a barong, the recreating scenes from various K-dramas, to fan ticket raffles and more, how fortunate indeed were those present at the venue to witness the evening’s ceremonies. Of which he blushes, “I’m so excited for this first fan meet in the Philippines”.

Beyond the games, Minho eagerly shared his solo tracks onstage. Mixing his palpable energy and engaging lyricism, the SHINee member talked about his tracks – namely “Heartbreak” and “Runaway” and how he is proud performing them for admirers of his music. “I’m very happy that the first fan meet outside Seoul is in the Philippines”. And with that, we can feel his warmth towards the loving Shawols present. Assuring the fandom’s request for a possible return show with his groupmates to happen again in Manila.

After the 2 hour program, we can safely say that it truly was a lucky choice for his fans to see him live.

A Good Afternoon with the Good Boy, Kim Seon-Ho

Kim Seon-Ho was recently in Manila for his sold-out fan meet and the Korean actor did not disappoint. All smiles and exuding with charm, the leading man dubbed as “Good Boy” thrilled audiences with fun games, interactive moments and all around good time. With his signature smile he quips, “Magandang araw, na-miss ko kayong lahat.”

In true Pinoy fashion, the local fans went all out with their cheers and high energy for the actor. To which, the Korean celebrity was visibly at awe with the love he was given. “I’m happy thanks to you. I will cherish this day for the rest of my life”, he shares. From fans dressed in wedding gowns, to hanboks, to lighted personalized signs and more, the supporters of Kim Seon-Ho showed up to the party donning their personal flair.

Onstage, Kim Seon-Ho opened up with some surprising facts. He likes bibingka and adores pancit. He finds the Pinoy game sipa interesting. He even shares Tagalog phrases with ease. Indeed, his adoration for our culture is evident. He too was very generous with his interactions. Shaking hands with fans offstage, acknowledging the players who joined him for the various segments and laughing at the funny banter with host, Kring Kim.

Alas, the show must end. But not before presenting Kim Seon-Ho a touching tribute video. The emotive piece was one of the highlights of the program as it brought out the feels from the fans and Kim Seon-Ho as well. “Salamat po. I had a very good time”, he shares.

What a good show for our good boy.

Without a doubt, ENGENEs are at a fever pitch for the arrival of ENHYPEN to the Philippines with their much-anticipated massive world tour. Their dedication to the group is truly overwhelming and is expected to shock the Mall of Asia Arena, the venue that will house this sensational world tour, on the first weekend of February 2023!

ENHYPEN members, JUNGWON, HEESEUNG, JAY, JAKE, SUNGHOON, SUNOO, and NI-KI, debuted on November 30, 2020, with 1st Studio Album BORDER : DAY ONE. This album achieved the biggest first week sales for a single album among K-pop groups to debut the same year and became their gateway towards inevitable stardom.

ENHYPEN had a clear sign that their success is destined to happen. Within two months of their debut, the group won four “Rookie of The Year” awards proving that they are the breakout boyband to watch out for. Less than two years later, the band proved they’re the new powerhouse of K-pop, as they became double “Million-Sellers” in the shortest period of time (since debut) in K-pop history with 1st Studio Album DIMENSION : DILEMMA (released in October 2021) and 3rd Mini Album MANIFESTO : DAY 1 (July 2022)..

There’s no stopping ENHYPEN from conquering the global K-pop scene and this upcoming world tour is a strong testament to the success that they and their fans have been manifesting!

The Philippine stop was previously set for 2 days but because of the clamor of the fans, a Day 3 show has been added. Now, all three schedules have reached their full capacity – making it a full-blown weekend dedicated to all ENGENE! See you all at the Mall of Asia Arena on February 3 – 5, 2023 for the ENHYPEN WORLD TOUR ‘MANIFESTO’ in MANILA. Show times are as follows: February 3 – 7PM, February 4 – 6PM, February 5 – 5PM.

Super Show 9 in Manila: Promises Kept #SS9inManila

Written by Ava Sharra Sumortin

After the postponement of the Super Junior World Tour – Super Show 9: Road in Manila in August, the K-pop group came back to keep their promise. All roads led to the SM Mall of Asia Arena on December 17 and 18 for the rescheduled Manila leg of their Super Show 9 tour, which was also the first time for Super Junior to have a two-day concert in the Philippines.

“We kept our promise, right? But for me, I think, you kept a promise for us,” Shindong said. “I’m really thankful that we were able to meet each other before the year ends,” Eunhyuk added. Leeteuk said that the fans kept their tickets like lottery tickets since August. He then joked, “You guys won the lottery tonight!”

And it certainly felt like it.
Shindong, Ryeowook, Donghae, Yesung, Siwon, Kyuhyun, Eunhyuk, and Leeteuk were excited to see the sapphire blue sea at the arena. They promised a great show for their PH ELFs, who were also ecstatic to see the group again.

Super Junior’s set started with “Burn the Floor” from their 2021 album “The Renaissance.” They continued with more of their powerful songs such as “The Crown,” “Super,” and “Mr. Simple.”
Their setlist also included songs from the group’s sub-units, which is a testament to the talent of each member.

Super Junior performed their recent hits including “Paradox,” “Mystery,” “Callin’,” “House Party,” and “More Days with You.” A Super Show wouldn’t be complete without “Sorry, Sorry” and “Bonamana,” a back-to-back performance that showed why the group is truly one of K-pop’s best artists.

One of the most fun parts of the show was their “Gods of Music” segment, which had different arrangements for “Spy,” “Rokkugo,” and “Mamacita.” Super Junior is also known for their humor, and all I can say is that you’d have to see this segment to believe it. What an experience!
For both of their shows, Super Junior had a surprise for their ELFs. On Dec. 17, they performed “Celebrate” for the first time on stage. “This is our present to you,” Leeteuk said. The fandom was also prepared with their “Celebrate” banners and their blue Santa hats, which also surprised the group. While on Dec. 18, Super Junior sang “White Love” from their newly released EP “The Road: Celebration.”

Before the night ended, Siwon said, “Anything is possible when you have the right people to support you … We can do everything because of you.” ELFs’ hearts melted at that moment.

Super Show 9 in Manila was a celebration of promises kept and of love and support between Super Junior and PH ELFs, a bond that has been growing since 2005.

SUPER JUNIOR continues their Super Show 9 Tour in Manila this weekend

Keeping their promise of return, Kings of Hallyu and global superstars, SUPER JUNIOR are making their way back to the Philippines to push through their grand reunion with PH E.L.F.s as PULP Live World proudly announces the return of

SUPER JUNIOR WORLD TOUR – SUPER SHOW 9: ROAD in MANILA on December 17, 6 PM, and December 18, 5 PM, 2022 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Known as the timeless K-Pop group, Super Junior has recently celebrated their 17th anniversary, making them one of the longest-running K-Pop idol groups in the industry. Throughout their career, they made monumental marks with the records achieved by their songs and multiple awards given worldwide. Most recently, they won the 2021 Artist of the Year at The Fact Music Awards. But more than these shining trophies and recognitions, Super Junior’s most iconic mark is how they paved the way for the K-Pop industry to be recognized now globally.

Veteran K-Pop fans would know how this legendary group worked hard from the beginning to achieve the status they have now and generously share with other younger K-Pop idols. No one can talk about Hallyu without mentioning their group in the discussion. Adding to this is the fact that they are the first K-Pop group to ever perform here in the Philippines with Super Show 2 in 2010.

Now, as they continue creating works for the fans, Super Junior is now on tour with the 9 th installment of Super Show. The tour follows the release of their 11th Album, The Road, which tells a message of moving forward as Super Junior continues their journey as artists. The show is specially dedicated to their fans, E.L.F.s. (Ever-Lasting Friend) – a fandom that is perfectly named considering their career in the industry and how their fans keep on supporting them today.

Last August, Super Junior and PH E.L.F.s met in an emotional atmosphere but during those times, we witnessed how the connection and love of this idol group and their fans rise above all else. Now, as Super Junior returns, PH E.L.F.s are in for a much more exciting, explosive, and superb Super Show 9 experience! As they said, Super Show 9 is a show where fans will feel happiness and good energy – this is exactly what they will bring to Manila this December!

Kumusta. Ako si Ji Chang-Wook

Korean actor and heartthrob Ji Chang-Wook was in town last November for his “Reach You” fan meet made possible by BENCH/. Held at the Mall of Asia Arena, the 35 year old actor was met with that signature warm Filipino welcome and excited cheers. The show title is a reference to how the actor feels when distance causes people to be apart, and to reaching them brings so much joy.

Kicking off with a performance of “Do You Believe in magic” from the hit Netflix show, “The Sound of Magic”, the South Korean stunner was exuding with charm. Sharing a joyful aura for his first Manila event. Of which he shares “I’m feeling very good right now”. Alongside the song number, Ji Chang-Wook was too all smiles as he took questions onstage and shared candidly some highlights from his career and future projects as well.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a fan meet without the much awaited fan games. And it truly did not disappoint! Ji Chang-Wook actively participated in the event’s activities still donning that adorable smile throughout. Indeed, his presence was infectious. By the time the program ended, Ji Chang-Wook warm heartedly opened up to his fans and shared “Till we meet each other. Salamat po”. With that, we can’t wait for his return.

REACH YOU: Ji Chang Wook Live in Manila was made possible by Bench.
