Stay With Bench: Stray Kids Fanmeet in Manila Experience

“We’ve been very very good because we are in Manila!” Bang Chan, Stray Kids’ leader, enthusiastically declared during their fan meet last January 20 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Together with his co-group, Hyunjin, Felix, Lee Know, I.N, Han, Seungmin, and Changbin, the South Korean act were all smiles and excited to be in front of the their adoring Pinoy fans.

After opening with a performance of ‘God’s Menu’, the fanmeet consisted of 8 different and unique segments wherein fans were able to interact and get to know the members even more. The first segment was called ‘I am who’, where the members must guess which member is being impersonated. This was followed by a game of jengga with a twist; that being the jengga blocks were much bigger, hence the segment being called ‘Giant Jengga No Easy Challenge’. An additional mechanic was also introduced: each block would either have the word ‘safe’ or ‘mission’ written on it. If a member gets a block with the word safe, they can simply place the block on top of the tower. If a member gets a block with the word mission, they have the option to do a mission as a team or as an individual, which added both more fun and difficulty to the game.

Next was the Domino Challenge, where the group with the most number of dominos toppled down wins, and as a reward, gets two free bench shirts. By the 4th segment, the members had to say I love you in four different ways: cute, sexy, crazy, and serious. The 5th segment was called the ‘Secret Secret Whisper Challenge’, which is basically a lip-reading game, the challenge being the noise-cancelling headphones the members must wear. In Cheese: Draw My Photocard, the 6th segment, 8 easels were placed onstage with bench shirts as their canvas. A photocard of a Stray Kids member would be attached, and the member would have 3 minutes to paint whoever is on the photocard. Eight lucky fans would have a chance to win a shirt from a random draw.

In the 7th and penultimate segment, Spot Choreography, a random part of one of their songs would be flashed on screen, and the members must perform the correct dance moves along with it. Loveline was the 8th and final segment, which was followed by a closing performance of ‘Case 143’, the perfect way to not only end and wrap up the fanmeet, but to also make Stays excited and look forward to the group’s return for their Maniac Tour on March 11 and 12, 2023.

Bench opened 2023 by bringing Stray Kids back to Manila in one of a kind fan meeting event.

Special thanks to Bench for making this event possible and for giving Filipino Stays a chance to see the members live!
