The KPOP fangirl in me came out last 2010 when KPOP groups started to visit the Philippines and included our country in their destinations. Most of these events were together with my stalking buddy, Jel. Just want to share those memories!
UKISS Philippine Promo Tour at SM Annex, March 28,2010
KiBum, Eli♥, Kevin and Xander
Super Junior’s Super Show 2 at Araneta Coliseum, April 10, 2010
First time to watch Super Junior live and it was amazing! Fave performance was Henry’s.
UKISS 1st Kiss Tour in Manila at Araneta Coliseum, June 14, 2010
This was memorable for both UKISS and their fans here in the Philippines. UKISS were emotional at the end of the concert with Kevin crying singing End of the Road as this was their first ever concert and it happened outside of Korea. Fave performances were Sexy Back of Eli, Kevin and Kiseop, BEP’s Bebot byAlexander ft Eli, and all group performances. Plus the talk part which they didn’t need interpreters since Kevin, Alexander and Eli can speak English.
Kim Hyun Joong‘s Intimate Meet and Greet at Crowne Plaza Hotel, June 18, 2010
Cozy dinner. All cameras were not allowed except TSPH’s official camera, so all were memories that could last a lifetime.♥♥♥ Fave parts were when he walked in, question and answer which he allowed 2 more questions from the fans, our fanclub gift which was a Tissot watch which he spoke in English “Philippine fans are rich”, singing him happy birthday with those big eyes curiously looking at the surprise two cakes with miniature of him, and of course our group picture taking with him.
Kim Hyun Joong and Beast Live in Manila charity concert, Araneta Coliseum, June 19, 2010
Finally watched KHJ perform live with Beast! Fave performance of course was sexy Please Be Nice to Me but no stripping off of shirt since there were many minors present and it was for charity. We were all waiting for it…lol…The charity concert which proceed went to Abiertas Foundation. Later it was found that KHJ donated/wired 1 million pesos a month before secretly when the foundation asked him if they could present a plaque of appreciation in Araneta which he declined and said it could be done in a small room.♥♥♥
Rain‘s and Daniel Henney ‘sThe Fugitive press conference at The Manila Hotel, September 9, 2010
Together with Ate Nimfa, a certified Cloud, was able to enter the press conference. Fave part was of course Daniel Henney since he spoke in English but did enjoy watching Rain and Lee Jung Jin answering questions too.
UKISS going out of the hotel for rehearsal at MOA, September 11, 2010
UKISS after rehearsal arrival at The Manila Hotel, September 11, 2010
UKISS at the Intensity Rain and UKISS concert at MOA open grounds, September 11, 2010
The reason why I got VIP tickets for Rain’s concert was they were the guests. Enjoyed all their performance and that they connected to the fans on their talk time since again they didn’t need interpreters since 4 members spoke English and that they would interpret other members.
RAIN at the Intensity Rain and UKISS concert at MOA open grounds, September 11, 2010
Finally seeing Rain perform live and rocking MOA. I should say one of the best KPOP live performers. Sexy!
Jay Park’s fan meet press conference at Dusit Thani Hotel, September 28, 2010
Jel, Glads and I went to the hotel and tried our luck and was able to attend the press conference. Enjoyed the press conference of course since Jay and his crew AOM spoke in English.
Jay Park’s guesting at Showtime, September 30, 2010
It was announced the day before that he will have a guesting at showtime, so I contacted a friend of mine who works for ABS and arranged for us to get into the show. VIPs and front seat, cool! was able to talk with Anne and Vhong since they would stay standby in front of us during commercial breaks.
Mnet Asian Music Awards 2010 red carpet at The Venetian Hotel, Macau, November 28, 2010
Lucky fangirl I am. Since the date was announced early and was in time for a vacation in HK and Macau with my officemates two days before the the awards night, I extended my trip and met up with my stalking buddy Jel who was also in a vacation in Macau with her family. Didn’t book a hotel for two nights and stayed in their hotel which was near Venetian.
Red Carpet was fun. Fave of course were 2PM’s and 2ne1’s arrival. Big Bang didn’t do the red carpet as they were at the Cotai Arena doing some rehearsal, but Jel and I were able to see them before the red carpet as we were near the Arena having bubble tea and making use of the free wifi at the cafe when suddenly Taeyang was walking towards us so then we started taking fancams walking beside him towards his entrance to the arena. We were not even aware that TOP and GD were behind us. We just realized they were when Taeyang entered the door and that TOP was approaching us with GD following him. TOP was nice when he waved at Jel when she said TOP fighting.
Mnet Asian Music Awards 2010 at the Cotai Arena, Venetian, Macau, November 28, 2010
After the red carpet, Jel and I were negotiating at scalpers selling tickets outside Cotai Arena when I heard a black person giving away tickets in English. No one apparently was making notice of him so I approached him. I asked two tickets and asked why he was giving them away. He said the awards night was about to start so why keep the tickets. Apparently, when we were inside the arena, the area we were in was for Venetian staffs, foreigner mostly, Americans. Lucky for us, on the seats were tickets for the After Party which the stars would attend.
The awards night was a blast with all those artists. Among the performers were Big Bang’s (Taeyang, TOP, and GD), 2ne1, 2PM, Wondergirls, Miss A, Gummy, DJ Doc, John Park with Japan’s Perfume, China’sZhang Jie and international artist, Far East Movement. Fave performances were of course DJ Doc, Far East Movement, 2PM which they took off their shirts, 2ne1, and of course Big Bang’s TOP, GD and Taeyang.
Some of actors/actresses that presented the winners were Eugene Kim, Ju Jin Mo, Chun Jung Myung, Song Joong Ki, Kim Sung Soo, G.O.D.’s Son Ho Young.
The top three of this photo are Taeyang, TOP and GD on their way to rehearsal as I wrote above. And the other photos is the lucky fangirl in me being in 10 minutes flight time difference with Big Bang’s Taeyang at Macau International Airport, and there were only two flights, to Korea and to the Philippines. Also on the same flight were actors, Kim Sung Soo(Full House) and Chun Jung Myung(Cinderella’s Sister). The biggest photo is a photo of me in brown taking a fancam of Taeyang that I got in Big Bang sites. Taeyang was nice. ♥ He waved back when I said to him goodbye and have a safe trip.
Yeah, fangirling memories of 2010! Wrapping it up with MAMA 2010 in Macau with all those artists. 🙂
