A Korean wave is set to hit the Philippines as our favorite K-pop acts are finally reuniting with their Pinoy fans.
After two years without a live concert in sight, South Korea’s biggest artists have confirmed their concerts and perfomances in Manila. Here’s the who and when details of the events you wouldn’t want to miss.
On May 29, the country’s first K-pop live concert – Begin Again: KPOP Edition will take place at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Headlining the historic event is Renjun, Jeno, Jaemin, Chenle and Jisung of chart-topper boy group NCT Dream.
The group was one of the last K-pop acts to hold a live concert in the country just before the COVID-19 lockdown in the country.
Alongside NCT Dream for the awaited concert is their labelmate, Key, the lead dancer and rapper of SHINee; and WEi, a six-member boy group from OUI Entertainment.
Girl group ALICE, consisting of member EJ, DO-A, Chaejeong, Yeonjae, Yukyung, Soheen and Karin will also join the two hours of K-pop galore.

There’s more to come this July! On the 22nd, SM Entertainment’s girl group Red Velvet is sharing the stage with our very own P-pop groups for a benefit show at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The In Purpose International Training Institute Inc.’s (IPITI) benefit show – Be You: The World Will Adjust, which has been described as an “extraordinary celebration for people with special needs” will also feature local acts such as the girls of BINI and the guys of BGYO.
