Last weekend was a busy one for Korean music lovers as four K-Pop artists held successful concerts in Manila on November 10 and 11.


WINNER
Korean boy group, WINNER, completed their first solo concert in the Philippines on November 10 at the Mall of Asia Arena. 'WINNER 2018 [EVERYWHERE] TOUR IN MANILA' marked the second time the group performed in the country after guesting at 2NE1's All or Nothing World Tour in 2014.

The members, leader Kang Seungyoon (Yoon), Song Minho (Mino), Lee Seunghoon (Hoony), and Kim Jinwoo (Jinu) gave their hearts out while performing in front of the nebula blue ocean filled with Pinoy INNER CIRCLEs(fanclub name). Aside from songs from their previous albums and EPs, 2014 S/S, EXIT: E, Fate Number For, Our Twenty For, and EVERYD4Y, the boys also had solo stages that showed their charisma and individual charms.

Filipino INNER CIRCLEs have prepared various projects for the boys before and during the concert, all of which were acknowledged by the members themselves and was even uploaded on Instagram by leader, Yoon. The lamp posters around MOA Arena, the Globamaze ad, the Movie Star Flashlight Event where they turned on their phone lights while repeatedly singing "Movie Star" just before the encore started, and the event after the boys sung "Luxury" where fans raised banners that says, "Inseos, the shelter that embraces WINNER everyday".

Towards the end of the concert, WINNER relayed how touched they were of the projects, that they will never forget about it, and thanked everyone for coming. They also promised to come back with new music and a new tour soon.

One of the members, Mino, will be releasing his first solo album, XX, on November 26.

WINNER will be holding an encore concert in Seoul on January 05, 2019, which will be followed by the North American leg of their WINNER [EVERYWHERE] TOUR starting January 15 to 29, 2019.

DEAN x SAAY
Also happened in November 10, Korean RnB singers, Dean and SAAY, serenaded their Pinoy fans during the DEANTRBL x SAAY Concert in Manila held at the New Frontier Theater (formerly KIA Theater). 

SAAY charmed the audience with her performance as she sung songs from her latest album, CLAASSIC. The former member of Korean girl group, EvoL, mentioned that she changed her entire setlist just for the Manila concert, which earned her praises from the concert attendees.

The singer also said in an interview that even though it was her first time coming to the Philippines, she already felt familiar and comfortable around everyone. SAAY recently released her first mixtape titled, "HORIZON: THE MIXTAPE", which contains five songs.

After SAAY's last song, ENCORE, for her set.. It was time for the man of the hour!

Philippine Rebels(fanclub name)'s much-awaited, Dean, was up on stage! This is the singer's second time holding a concert in the country after his DEAN 130 MOOD: TRBL Philippine Promo Tour in 2016.

He rocked the stage singing all his hit songs that made his Pinoy fans sing along and he made sure to give his best performance as always. Some of the songs that he sang were, "Put My Hands On You", "FANXY CHILD", and his hit song, "Instagram".

What made the concert more special was that November 10 also happens to be Dean's birthday! The whole theater made sure to sing him a Happy Birthday as loud as they can.
