Last Friday, some of our favorite K-Pop artists came together to perform for their Filipino fans as All Access Production's Super Pop Con 2017: Mission 1 brought together some of the most enthusiastic K-pop fans to the Mall of Asia Arena to meet their idols.
Did you miss out on the concert or still suffering from post-concert depression? Here's our quick recap either way!
Coming to Manila for the second time around, BTOB members Seo Eunkwang, Lee Minhyuk, Lee Changsub, Im Hyunsik, Peniel, Jung Ilhoon, Yook Sungjae made the arena go wild as they performed fan favorites "Second Confession," "It’s Okay," and "Someday" along with their hits "I’ll Be Your Man" and "Movie." Their performance was golden and even non-Melodies were stunned by their mad vocals! Not to mention, their playful personalities and outstanding visuals slayed as well!
The only girl who performed during the festival, Kriesha Chu, who's Filipino-Chinese and known for being the runner-up on K-Pop Star 6, owned the stage with her bubbly aura and stellar performance. All her Filipino fans were thrilled as she sang OPM hit "Kung Ako Nalang Sana" and performed her own songs "Trouble" and "I Want You." At 18, her newfound fame is reaching a fever pitch—and we can't be prouder!
Members of B1A4 Jinyoung, Sandeul, Baro, Gongchan, and CNU wowed their fans with amazing performances of their songs "What’s Happening," "A Lie," "Lonely," "Baby Goodnight," and "Good Timing." It was their second time performing here in Manila and the audience was delighted when they unexpectedly sang some of their old hit songs. The boys expressed their happiness with super kilig fan service, especially to the BANAs in the room. They still know how to charm their audience, for sure!
The group famous for their cool and manly aura, VIXX members Ravi, Leo, Hongbin, N, Hyuk, and Ken made the fans go crazy with their strong performances of "Blackout," "Fantasy," "Love Equation," and "On and On," which was quite unexpected according to Starlights. We love how the boys showed off their amazing dance moves while still interacting with the audience. They also delivered their introduction in Filipino, which made our hearts flutter and feel even more kilig!
It's the second time for B.A.P members, Yongguk, Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup, and Zelo to do a concert here in Manila. They were one of the most awaited groups during the night and didn't let fans down as they rocked their performances with a set list consisting of "One Shot," "That’s My Jam," "Carnival," "No Mercy," and "Wake Me Up." They didn't disappoint, especially since there were several B.A.P fans who came from different countries just to watch their performance here! The group is now back in Korea and we're excited for their comeback soon!
Another talented group from Cube Entertainment, Pentagon members Jinho, Hui, Hongseok, E'Dawn, Shinwon, YanAn, Yeo One, Yuto, Kino, and Wooseok hyped the crowed with their opening songs "Can You Feel It," "Pretty Pretty," and "Beautiful." Aside from the visuals, their performance was brimming with energy and talent. We are so looking forward to more from Pentagon!
These boys might look familiar to you as they are currently doing promotion rounds in the Philippines, most notably in ABS-CBN's noontime show It’s Showtime. B.I.G members Benji, Heedo, J-Hoon, Gunmin, and Minpyo created an upbeat atmosphere as they obviously enjoyed their performance on stage. A day after the concert, the group even had a meet and greet and mini concert which made every B.I.G fan feel special!
For every K-Pop fan, it was definitely a night to remember! What were your favorite moments during the #SuperPopConPH2017? We'd love to know about it! Share it with us in the comments!
