#MBCShowChampMNL2018: 5 Things We're Looking Forward To In EXO's Show In October



Popular K-pop live music show MBC Music Show Champion is returning to Manila for the second time this October 28, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena, and Filipino K-pop fans can hardly wait! Everyone's in for a thrill as one of today's biggest groups is headlining the music event, and it's none other than EXO!

If you're an avid EXO-L, having your favorite group grace our country with two concerts this 2018 (the first one was their Elyxion tour back in April) could be a major source of spazzing and anxiety as you frantically turn to your savings that's supposedly reserved for their upcoming comeback, yes? (Yup, we know you too well.)

But all expenses aside, EXO's Manila show is such a blessing for us, knowing that their comeback is surely happening soon. This means that we're in for so much new stuff from these talented, swoon-worthy boys! Here, we list down 5 things every EXO-L (including us) is looking forward to come October!

1. Hearing their new songs live sooner than we expected

As we mentioned, they're about to make a comeback (hopefully this September, fingers crossed!) which means that they're releasing a new album with fresh tracks (that they wrote themselves) soon! And if you thought that you had to wait for their next EXO Planet tour just to see them again in concert, then you might just get lucky at the MBC Music Show Champion! We're already imagining Baekhyun telling us to sing along to their singles and Chen hitting those glorious high notes! Chills!

2. Dancing along to new choreography

If you're like us who binge-watch every EXO performance there is on the internet, then you've probably somehow memorized the choreography of each of their songs. Soon, we'd have more material to obsess over, and perhaps we'd know them by heart by the time EXO gets here! If you're not quite the dancer, then just plainly watching Sehun nail those dance breaks and Kai tease us with some hip-thrusting moves would be more than a treat on its own.

3. Seeing #OT9 together again

For their 2017 comeback, Chinese member Lay went on a hiatus and focused more on his solo career. This year, every EXO-L is praying to the K-pop gods that their dear Yixing will finally join Suho, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, Baekhyun, Xiumin, Sehun, and Chen. If the stars aligned for us, we'd possibly see Lay on October 28, too, and we've already waited too long for that!

4. Obsessing over their fresh visuals 

With a new album comes a new concept, and this means that we'd be seeing fresh visuals, themed outfits, and hair transformations! Which bold hair color will Xiumin rock next? Or perhaps Suho will surprise us this time around? Ah, the possiblities! Whatever concept they're currently brewing, we know for sure that our #aesthetics kings would never disappoint. Here's to finding our next style inspo!

5. Consuming every content we could get, basically

From the moment they land on NAIA, EXO's presence in our country would surely be documented in every way. We can't wait to see them do their press junkets, take videos and photos of our own during the con, and binge-watch fancams even days after they already left the PH! From their killer performances to their candid moments (and all the cute #ChanSoo bits in between,) everything will go straight to our phone galleries and be enternally imprinted in our EXO-L hearts!

If you don't want to miss any of these, make sure to be at the #MBCShowChampMNL2018! Aside from EXO, Korean acts Weki Meki, MXM, The Boyz, Hyeongseop x Eunwoong, and Xeno-T are also in the lineup with Kim Shin Young as the MC. Ticket pre-selling will be on Sept. 16, 2018, 10am at SM North EDSA Skydome.
