The statement “Thank God, it’s Friday!” has never been more accurate to express how the eager fans of the popular K-Pop group SEVENTEEN are feeling right about now. Today, fans, collectively known as the Carats, from all over are flocking at SM Mall of Asia Arena to see their beloved boy group live in concert!
Returning to Manila for the second time around, the self-producing, 13-piece group comprised of leader S.Coups and members Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, DK, Mingyu, The8, Seungkwan, Vernon, and maknae Dino are back to cap off their first ever world tour titled “Diamond Edge” brought to us locally by MMI Live.
In August 2016, the group held a two-day fan meet at The Theatre at Solaire; but, unfortunately, due to passport complications, Chinese members Jun and The8 were not able to perform alongside the band. However, as Seventeen’s leader S.Coups had promised, the group is back, complete and ready for one last memorable show to end their successful world tour.
Armed with a 23-song set list, fans are looking forward to finally hearing their favorite Seventeen songs live like “Aju Nice” and “Don’t Wanna Cry.” Aside from that, seeing the synchronized dance moves of SEVENTEEN has always been the dream of every Carat!
With the thought of SEVENTEEN closing their tour here in our very own country, fans are definitely excited to see if their sebongs have a surprise planned up their sleeves. But surprise performance or not, just seeing our idols and biases live, meeting new friends, and ~slipping into the diamond life~ will surely be worth the hours spent, not to mention pesos, to get tickets for this much-awaited show!
Sound off below if you're going to be at the show tonight! See you all there!
