Super Junior’s Sihae (donghae and siwon) went to Manila for a Bench Show and meet their fans. Bench is a Philippine local clothing brand endorsed by Siwon and Donghae. The two Idols arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 at about 10:54 a.m. via Korean Air flight 621. Donghae and Siwon met with 700 fans for “SiHae in Manila promo” hosted by Bench at Trinoma Activity Center.

Donghae Tweeted their arrival in Manila:

“Good bye !! Manila see u next time !!^^ I’ll be back soon !! Good night see u in dream !!”

Siwon’s Tweet:

“The day before – Nell thanks manila for all your love and passion. already miss you ;)”

Technically, I missed this HUGE event! I went to Manila at dawn and came back in my hometown midnight last Monday, august 13,2012. Woah, If I have known, I would’ve moved it on August 14,2012 instead! They’re 2 of my bigtime crushes on Super Junior! Sad but anyways, enjoy spamming your eyes on this hotties!

Introducing “XLR8”, 8-member Filipino boy band

The first filipino boy band to debut this  year!^_^.  XLR8 consists of 8 members namely ADRIAN MUHLACH, ARKIN DEL ROSARIO, CALEB SANTOS, CARLO LAZERNA, HIDEAKI TORIO, FRANCIS ALBERT RAMOS “KIKO”, MELJOHN OR MJ MAGNO, MM MAGNO. XLR8 (pronounced as accelerate) is an 8-member boy group from the Philippines created by Viva Records. It took Viva one year of auditions, dance and voice training and to find the right songs for the boys from producers Christian de Walden and Marcus Davis. (credits: angelotan)




I first heard them on candy pastel’s site. I got excited and anticipated their debut since magno is one of the members.  I like him coz he’s good in singing and dancing. (saw it on youtbe/friendster i think). But when I saw them on Party Pilipinas (i accidentally switch the channel coz commercial pa sa ABS), I was totally surprise!.  I thought they got something like the korean boy group.  I think charms and looks is all they got.  I’m not saying they can’t sing, it’s like they can sing and dance but compared to korean boy group, they’re absolutely nothing.  Their song is catchy but I really don’t like it coz it’s a copycat song. The tune is the same with Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry. They dance well but they don’t dance together.  Pop Girls are even better than XLR8, at least their song is ‘original’.  I say, they BADLY need a practice!! (if they want to level up to korean boy bands).  Clearly 1 yr.  training is not enough for them to be successful as kpop band.

I’m just stating my opinions on this new boy group. Hopefully in the future, they’ll do better. go go go XLR8!!

They should also appear in ABS-CBN not only in GMA because one channel is not enough to show Philippine’s pride.^_^

Like what they said in Party Pilipinas, “We’ll be back for a concert”, they’re really  back and be the 2nd korean boy band to held a concert here in Philippines.

They were all coming back to have their 1st Live Concert in Manila, Philippines along with the Korean Girl Group, 4minute on May 29, 2010 at the Big Dome (Araneta Coliseum). It was said the PEP (Premiere Entertainment Philippines Inc. ) was the one who organized and make the promotional tour and concert possible.

SS501 to hold fanmeeting in the Philippines

Be thrilled Ladies coz another Korean boy band will visit Philippines!!  (pls. come to Cebu naman!)

[I was so surprised when I saw SS501’s hit song “Love Like This” in MYX Hit chart.  SS501 has been promoting that song last year in korea so it’s kinda old.  I never thought that there’s some ‘meaning’ behind it. Since filipino kpop fans are trying to get them visit philippines, they should at least show that they’re famous and loved right?


This article was taken from TripleS Philippines Blog regarding SS501’s plans to hold a fanmeeting here in the Philippines this coming July. All details are provided below:
