MBC Show Champion in Manila

October 3, 2016

It’s been a long time since I posted something here on my blog. I have been so busy at school and at some fan club duties. But since I am quite free as of the moment, I can now blog some important events that happened to my life recently.

Last September 3, 2016, I was able to attend another concert here in the Philippines. It is the MBC Show Champion in Manila which is produced by All Access Productions (same producer of GOT7 1st Fanmeeting in the Philippines). Nine artists came here in this concert: Gugudan, KNK, Astro, Sonamoo, M&D, AOA, BAP, VIXX, and BTS.

The ticket prices are: SVIP – P 8000, VIP – P 5500, SILVER – P 3000, and GEN AD – P 1575. At first, there were no GEN AD tickets but weeks before the concert, they released GEN AD tickets.

I ordered my tickets through Super Junior’s PH fanclub, Super Junior United Philippines (SJUPH) so I will be together with other ELFs plus their chosen block is at the middle so it would be a better view. I was not that prepared so I only bought the SILVER tickets. But still, it is worth it.

I arrived at the venue an hour before they open the gates and within that one hour, I was able to meet some of my online friends.

Michelle unnie! I guess we met online 6 years ago and now is our first time to meet each other! <3

The one with braces was my former schoolmate, Carle. She is with her friends.

My concert buddy (checkered) – Emarie. My classmate (black) – Jaja. And her friend.

These photos were taken as we line up. The line was long and there were really a lot of people. But it’s fine since I’m with my friends.

This is our view from the Upper Box section. I wasn’t expecting that we were a bit closer.

The concert started at about 7:15pm. The hosts for the event were Super Junior’s GODDESS, Kim Heechul and popular comedian Kim Shin Young.

The following is the flow of the performances.

Gugudan

Gugudan is a new 9-member girl group of Jellyfish entertainment. The members are: Mimi, Hana, Haebin, Nayoung, Sejeong, Sally, Soyee, Mina and Hyeyeon. They debuted last June 28, 2016, with the title song, Wonderland.

I was a bit familiar with this girl group because some of the members where former contestants of Produce 101. Produce 101 is a show in South Korea wherein they will form a girl group of 11 members from different companies. Three of Gugudan members – Nayoung, Mina, and Sejeong – were included there. Mina and Sejeong were able to reach the end and be a part of the girl group known as IOI.

I was really looking forward for Sejeong since she is one of my favorites.

They performed their song Wonderland.

 

KNK

KNK is a 5-member boy group from YNB Entertainment. The members are Youjin, Seungjun, Inseong, Jihun, Heejun.

Thanks to google I was able to mention their names. I know the group KNK but I am not spazzing about them. When I saw them performed on stage, I was a bit surprise because they were good, vocally. Maybe if I have more time, and money, I’ll spazz them. hihi

 

ASTRO

I can say that Astro is one of the cutest groups I’ve seen in this event. Aside from the fact that their clothes reminds me of my childhood days, but they are definitely fun seeing at the stage.

Astro is a 6-member boy group from Fantagio Entertainment. The members are: Jinjin, MJ, Eunwoo, Moonbin, Rocky, and Sanha.

I have seen a lot about them since their debut (but I promised myself not to look on other boy groups because money is </3 haha) and now I know why there are a lot of people that stan them. Aside from their cute and lively performance, they made me squeal when they did the famous game here in the Philippines, “Pak Ganern”. If given the chance, I would like to see them perform again soon.

 

Sonamoo

Sonamoo is a 7-member girl group from TS Entertainment. The group consists of Sumin, Minjae, D.ana, Nahyun, Euijin, High.D and NewSun.

Once again, thanks to google, I was able to mention their names. I was quite confused with Sonamoo and Mamamoo because they both have “moo” at the end of their group’s name. But I do not spazz both of them. Sorry. T_T

I was amazed with them since their vocals are quite good. I hope they will be given more attention soon.

 

M&D

One of the main reasons why I went in this concert is to see again the ultimate goddess of Super Junior, no other than Kim Heechul. I am an ELF ever since and I support each member!

M&D is a rock group formed by SM Entertainment in 2011. The members are Super Junior’s Heechul and TRAX’s Kim Jungmo. I was an SM stan that’s why I know them. But I never imagined Jungmo to be this handsome in person. <3

But the most memorable thing that happened during their performance is that they sang one of Super Junior’s legendary song, Rokkugo! I don’t know why but it feels like the whole Arena sang with them. Now, I NEED SS7 because I am missing Super Junior!

 

AOA

To be very honest I only know Seolhyun and Jimin in AOA. And I am really looking forward for their performance. And truly, they were one of those who made the stage hot. Sexy and hot are the words that will really describe them.

AOA is an eight-member girl group of FNC Entertainment. The members are: Choa, Jimin, Yuna, Youkyung, Chanmi, Hyejeong, Seolhyun, and Mina.

 

VIXX

I knew VIXX because of my friend, Michelle unnie. She really likes VIXX and when I saw them perform live, now I know the reason why she likes them. Aside from the fact that they are good looking (and hot ~ hi to Ken’s forehead and Ravi’s body lololol), they are really talented. Their whole performance was really good and I am looking forward to see one of their solo concert here in the Philippines. I am just sad that Leo was not able to attend the concert because of his injury. But the good thing is, he is doing well now. I just hope that VIXX will be recognized even more. They deserve it.

VIXX is a six-member group formed by Jellyfish Entertainment. VIXX consists of N, Leo, Ken, Ravi, Hongbin and Hyuk.

 

BAP

I guess as time passes by, the more extreme the performances are. I really admired the boy groups for really giving their very best in every performance they make. I am not saying that girl groups don’t give their best but compared to boy groups, their performance is really DAEBAK.

Here goes BAP. I always hear this group but I do not know the members. But their performance gave me chills. To the fans of BAP, I am proud of you for choosing a great group!

BAP  is a South Korean boy group formed in 2011 under TS Entertainment. The members are Yongguk, Youngjae, Daehyun, Himchan, Jongup, and Zelo.

 

BTS

And lastly, the main reason why I wanted to attend MBC Show Champ in MNL, BTS. I got frustrated in their concert here last July because I wasn’t able to buy a ticket. SOLD OUT. And I felt so desperate to watch them live. So yeah, I decided to see them in this MBC Show Champ even though I know they’ll only perform two or three songs.

But they didn’t fail me. They were really a group to be admired. I noticed Jin so much since he is really handsome. He caught my attention. Same goes with Jhope and Jungkook. Jhope was just wearing a white shirt and pants with a cap but he caught my attention. I DO NOT KNOW WHY. Well, Jungkook, he is always in the middle and so energetic. But of course, my bias Rapmon didn’t fail me with his english skills.

Seeing them perform, I will surely save money to watch them on their next concert. Target seat: Lowerbox <3

BTS is a seven-member group from Big Hit Entertainment. The members are Rapmonster, Jin, Jungkook, V, Jhope, Suga and Jimin.

 

It was a great show. My money is worth it. I hope there will be more KPOP events here but not this year. Let my wallet rest first. But seriously, I’m so happy I watched it.

And this is my mandatory selfie together with the stage. hihi

I am looking forward for my next KPOP concert or event!
