Filipino K-Pop Fans will get a chance to meet their fave & fab K-POP Stars only if they “demand” it.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Philippines-Republic of Korea Diplomatic Relations, the Korean embassy is holding a cultural festival November this year. The festival will also cap year 2009 as the “Philippines-Republic of Korea Friendship Year,” as stated by Proclamation No. 14298 signed by Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo last May 2008.
Kiejoo Kim, Counselor for the Korean Embassy in the Philippines, said his Embassy is planning to bring Korean performers to the country.
Kim was asked if the Korean Embassy is planning to include among the cultural performers the Korean pop (K-pop) stars currently making waves in the Philippine music scene today and He answered, “I’m not in a position to guarantee who we can bring to the RP,” Kim answered. “We will try our very utmost to bring our well-renowned Korean stars so that we can really enjoy together with the Filipino people.”
And He quickly added that the plan can push through easily if Pinoys loudly voice out their demand, using surveys, blogs, signature drives, and other platforms. He said, “I think if there is a certain, a great number of audience, I think that should be a very convincing rationale that we really have to bring them here”.
So what are we waiting for? Calling all FILIPINO K-POP FANS let our voice be heard! Let us make a petition or signature drives so that we can bring our fave K-POP stars here in Manila, Philippines! “Ano pang hinihintay natin? simulan na natin ngaun!! If you have noticed, KOREAN WAVE is in the air!! Korean songs from Wonder Girls, 2NE1, Big Bang, TVXQ and Super Junior are repeatedly played in different radio stations and shown in special episodes of t.v shows in GMA and ABS-CBN. And just recently, Kim Bum of Boys Over Flowers came to Manila, Philippines and guested on different shows of ABS-CBN and even shoot a commercial of RC COLA drink w/ Maja Salvador. So it’s really possible for Korean Pop Stars like 2NE1, Big Bang or Super Junior to come here in Manila and held a concert.
