Seventeen is coming back after sold-out Be The Sun Manila concert


Seventeen is coming back sooner than you think after their successful Be The Sun Manila concert.

Live Nation Philippines just announced that the K-pop group will bring their Be The Sun concert to the Philippine Arena on December 17, 2022.

Indeed, there’s something ‘bout Filo Carats’ energy that makes Seventeen want to keep coming back to perform in front of their Filipino fans.

The K-pop performance powerhouse held their sold-out, two-day concert at the Mall of Asia Arena October 8 and 9 for the Manila leg of their Be The Sun World Tour. 

The 13-member boy group, composed of S.Coups, Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, The8, Mingyu, DK, Seungkwan, Vernon, and Dino, was met with deafening cheers by their fans fondly called as Carats in the two-day show.

Filipino fans could not help screaming their hearts out as Seventeen opened the show with fiery performances of their songs “Hot” and “March” off of their “Face The Sun album” and their 2017 track “HIT”.

“Manila’s energy is no joke!! you guys are crazy! We’re so hyped!,” main dancer Hoshi said during the group’s introduction at Day 2 of Be The Sun in Manila. 

“Sana all,”lead vocalist Joshua said the popular Pinoy slang phrase before echoing Hoshi’s remark on the high-spirited crowd: “Wow! your energy today is really amazing, we’re receiving so much love”.

The “King of Synchronization” continued to rock the arena with their “Rock With You” performance followed by Joshua and Vernon’s duet “2 Minus 1”.

The group turned up the heat with the performance, vocal, and hip-hop subunits’ breathtaking performances of fan favorites “Moonwalker”, “Wave”, “Come to Me”, “Imperfect Love”, “Gam3 BO1”, and “Back it up”.

Meanwhile,the members got to play around on-stage and interact with Carats while executing previous hits “Mansae”, “Left and Right”, and “Very Nice”, with the ever-lively fans singing along “very well” with their idols as if they owned the show. 

The rose quartz and serenity-filled arena went on to draw cheers as the Kpop idols display impressive vocals and choreography with the setlist’s “Shadow”, “Crush”, “World”, “Darl+ling”, “Our Dawn i Hotter Than Day”, and “Snapshoot”.

The self-producing group had fans off their seats jumping and frolicking along with them in the seemingly endless “Aju Nice” to conclude their nearly three-hour concert. 

Seventeen members could not get enough of the Filipino fans’ wild reception, speaking from their heart about coming back “as soon as possible”.

Or as Woozi and DK put it in Tagalog words: “Kita tayo ulit” and “Babalik kami ulit”.

“I realize that Manila Carats can concentrate and have fun in concerts really well. Thank you for all the love that you gave us. We’ll be coming back, so I hope you guys come back just like this in our concert today,” said Dino, the group’s maknae and main dancer.

Presented by Live Nation, Be The Sun in Manila marked the boy band’s fifth visit to the country, more than two years after their Ode to You concert in February 2020 sans Seungcheol who took a hiatus due to health reasons.

During their stay in Manila,members of the group were spotted strolling around Mall of Asia, eating food from popular Filipino fast food chain, and enjoying the sunset view and trying out rides at the MOA seaside.
