They are here! They arrived in short notice. Lols.They arrived noontime on February 1, 2012. Blackjacks must’ve had a 24/7 lookout on 2NE1 updates. A few pinoy blackjacks made it to the airport for 2NE1’s arrival.
Nobody knew why 2ne1 is here in the Philippines and some said that they’re here for vacation since it’s still winter in Korea. But in my POV, vacation?!, nah, I don’t think so. If they’re having a break due to winter, they would’ve gone separate ways. Bom would go the states and visit some relatives and Dara would probably visit Philippines. I’m a blackjack but not as updated as before when I’m still running the Gallery. I’ve seen pictures of 2ne1 together in New York. I think they’re discreetly working on a project and I wonder what it is.
Sharing you a few shots of 2NE1 in Manila today, February 1, 2012.
Does anybody knows ZE:A? (Jey-ah) I only know 1 song from them which is entitled “Mazeltov”, their debut song that goes with a funny lyrics: “Monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday” (like we don’t know the days of the week? rofl) Their songs is just a few of kpop songs with english words. Ok, I’m not a hater, in fact I like ZE:A. Their member, Kim Dong Jun, reminds me of 2NE1 Dara’s exboyfriend which is Joseph Bitangcol.
While dining out last night, I saw a MYX show guesting ZE:A members, it was then i remembered that I haven’t blogged about this. They came for a fanmeeting and promoting their album for 3 days around the city of Manila.

Happy lunar new Year!!
Hi KPOP fans!!
pardon for the late blog on Siwon’s unexpected secret arrival (rumoured to be with Kyuhyun and Eunhyuk) in Manila Philippines. That was a sudden news that panic most of the PHelfs living in Manila who went directly to NAIA Terminal to see their Idol’s arrival. I don’t get a chance to stalk him coz I live in Cebu but I’m happy he spent his New Year’s Day here in Philippines. I’ll hope they’ll visit Cebu too! ^_^ (I’ll surely get VIP seats!)
Siwon only tweeted about himself coming to Manila but Eunhyuk and Kyuhyun was with him too for the Kyochon CF shoot, a popular restaurant in Korea.
Here’s the article about his sudden visit:
Super Junior’s Siwon in Manila for ad Shoot
MANILA, Philippines – K-pop fans in the Philippines got their first treat of the new year when Super Junior’s resident hunk Siwon arrived in the country last night.
Twitter was abuzz when Siwon posted that he was on his way to Manila.
“On my way to the airport now going to MANILA! A new year new night in the MANILA PHILIPINES ! Yoohoo!” Siwon tweeted along with a picture of himself.
This started a frenzy among fans who wanted to know Siwon’s purpose in visiting Manila.
With Siwon’s announcement, fans trooped to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)Terminal 1 hoping to get a glimpse of the singer-model-actor.
At past 11 p.m., Siwon tweeted that he arrived at NAIA.
“Just arrived. whats up manila! still new day here!” he posted on Twitter along with a picture of passengers queuing at NAIA’s Immigration area.
He followed this with a tweet to say that he’s in the country to shoot an advertisement.
“I’m in Manila to shoot an ad. It’s not 12 o’clock here yet. Many things have happened in 2011 and I hope that in 2012, you’ll always be happy. Happy New Year. I love you,” he posted on Twitter along with a photo.
According to fans, Siwon did not go out of the airport through the arrival area but instead exited at the departure area.
Twitter was also abuzz that Siwon arrived with Super Junior member Kyuhyun. This has not been confirmed.
Siwon’s visit to the country became a trending topic on Twitter in the Philippines.

As what the title says, yup Pinoy Dal Shabet fanatics. They’ve discreetly have had their pictorial here in Cebu (my city) last November 21, 2011. I was in awe when I read the news regarding the Star Hwabo Press Conference held in korea where Dal Shabet attendend. I honestly NEVER thought that a korean kpop idol group would come here secretly to take just a bunch of photos. I remorse to that! They’re not the only kpop artist who went here secretly. (Talking about F.T. Island who had a video shoot for their music video) If I had known I would’ve take a peek and snag a picture of them with me. JK. I’ve been to the resort and it’s pretty nice with all that natural-beauty-look. I got interested with the news because their debut song “Supa Dupa Diva” is my alarm clock tone until now (incredibly). I just realized that I’ve been using a single tune for my alarm tone for almost a year. And as a Kpop fan, that’s a record for Dal Shabet. I hardly even know these girls, I just got addicted to their catchy song and dance moves! IF they’ll release another catchy song, I’ll totally love them for sure and be one of their fans. The other interesting side of this girls is that they named their fans “Darling” which happens to be my Nickname – Darling. lols. Read along the post and learn more about this awesome girls.
Dal Shabet Profile:
Dal Shabet (Hangul: 달샤벳), stylized as Dal★Shabet, is a South Korean girl group created by E-Tribe through their label Happy Face Entertainment. The members include Viki (Leader), Serri, Ah Young, Jiyul, GaEun and Subin (Maknae). On January 3, 2011, Dal Shabet released their debut music video, “Supa Dupa Diva”, making them the first girl group to debut in 2011.

An article from Soompi:
Dal Shabet Glam up for “Star Pictorial”
The six charming ladies of Dal Shabet recently participated in “Star Pictorial,” a photoshoot service that’s more like a box present of pictures for fans.
Filmed in Cebu, Philippines, the girls showed a wide array of images from “Bling Bling” cute to lovely, and even alluring and sexy, making full use of the beautiful scenery at their disposal. They also gave a nod to the upcoming holiday season by dressing themselves in fun Christmas-themed accessories for a “Christmas party in Summer” theme.
Since the girls are usually known for their cuter image on stage, fans were excited to see the girls take on a feistier look, accomplished by dramatic eyelashes, punky looks, and form-fitting dresses.
“They filmed in the sweltering heat outside, but the members maintained their upbeat energy all throughout,” the producers satisfyingly said.

Hello Kpop Lovers!
I don’t get to watch Rated K on Sundays because it’s a family day and we’re usually out in the evening. Luckily, we didn’t go out that night so I was able to watch the show and I was gladly surprised that they’re featuring South Korea, it’s places, food,high-technology and artists. When they featured Kpop, I feel like belong to that country because I can totally relate in everything they say, all the Kpop group and events shown. I’d like to share this to everyone of you (not just Filipino kpop fans). There’s no site providing downloadables on local shows so I’m gonna translate everything Korina (host) said by seconds on the video. I’m gonna try my best so I hope you all like it ^_^
Rated K. A Magazine show broadcasted on ABS-CBN every Sunday. Features human interest stories and no-holds barred interviews with interesting personalities. Korina Sanchez once again showcases her specialty in news gathering and presentation as she goes to all places and spaces wherever there’s a story needs to be told. This hard-hitting broadcast journalist also sits down with various people from all walks of lives to hear their stories and views about anything under the sun. (source: Abs-cbn)

If you love 2am and you’re a Filipino well you probably knew they came here in the Philippines last April. They promoted their latest album “Saint O’ Clock”. I’m a huge fan of 2am! My fave member is Jo Kwon- next is Jinwoon. I love Jo Kwon for being a Ssanti King and Jinwoon for just being cute. I’ve watched a lot of 2am shows and dowloaded a few of their live performances in MBC- SBS- KBS and MNet. I’m a little upset for not blogging about them coming here so I’m posting some photos and videos of their activities while they stayed here. To start off- here’s a cute crazy dance from our Ssanti King- Jo Kwon.
