It’s more fun in the Philippines. Especially when over 26,000 fans headed to SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on 24 June 2016 for the MTV Music Evolution Manila 2016. The second edition of the concert featured performances by OneRepublic, Far East Movement, Bebe Rexha, Apink, Gary V featuring Gab Valenciano, James Reid and Nadine Lustre.

KPop girl group APINK

You can almost feel the excitement of the locals whenever anything remotely related to APINK was mentioned during the concert, be it a tv commercial, a poster or even just a mention of their name. Filipinos are huge fans of Kpop. In fact during the press conference, I noticed the room clear out immediately after the end of the Q&A session with APINK. So you could imagine the pandemonium when Park Cho-rong, Yoon Bo Mi, Jeong Eun-ji, Son Na Eun, Kim Nam Joo and Oh Ha Young appeared on the stage at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, the crowd went wild! Dressed in matching sailor-themed outfits, the six girls performed their top hits including “Remember”, “Mr. Chu” and “Luv”. They also moved in sync with two other songs “Attracted to You” and “No No No” alongside a massive Pinoy audience.
