[by Cho Suyoun] On coming September 7, the ‘K-POP Republic’ concert will be held at Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines.
There are no doubts that K-POP fever is all over the Philippines. On September 7, ‘K-POP Republic’ concert will be held at Araneta Coliseum in Manila, and it is known that SHINee, EXO-K, and Dal★shabet will be participating in the concert.
The concert is progressed by JU Entertainment that also held the ‘Dream K-POP Fantasy Concert (DKFC) in Manila’ on last January 19. As the Entertainment successfully finished the first one in January, JU will continue the K-POP fever among fans in the Philippines by holding the second one in September.
Among the groups that will be standing on the concert stage, SHINee is especially in the center of K-Wave craze in the Philippines as the boys have been visiting the country very often. As soon as the group’s participation in the concert was confirmed, many SHINee fans in the Philippines already asked for reserving entrance tickets to the concert.
Moreover, EXO-K also proved to be an influential K-POP group in local areas by the fans’ responses at DKFC in January. With continuous requests of holding SHINee’s next concert in the Philippines, the group of six members decided to perform again at ‘K-POP Republic’ after seven months.
As for Dal★shabet, it is the first official visit to the country, but local fan clubs of this girl group already exist with active works. It is expected that Dal★shabet’s visit to the Philippines will be a delightful present for local fans who have been waiting to see the group for a long time.
“As majority of enterprises expand their global business to South Asia as a center, the importance of overseas market is increasing year by year. JU will be in the front of developing the overseas contents market in the long term rather than a one-off item,” said a source from JU Entertainment.
