Calling all k-pop and k-drama lovers in the Philippines, who wants an event featuring everything about Korean Wave with FREE admission? Well before you even wish it has already come true. 😉 Filipino fans of Korean entertainment will have a full-day feast on all things about Korean wave or “Hallyu” as the Philippine K-pop Convention, Inc. (PKCI), in partnership with the Korean Cultural Center (KCC), and supported by the Korea Foundation for International Cultural Exchange (KOFICE), brings you “Happy Hallyu Day” on July 23, 2016 at Skydome, SM City North EDSA.
Various Korean-related activities from k-pop, k-drama, and travel to Korea and even on k-beauty and fashion await every attendee. Get to enjoy being a fangirl/fanboy on activity booths from K-pop fan clubs and brands. Famous Korean cosmetic brands like Missha will have make-up demonstrations where guests can know how to achieve the same look as their favorite K-pop artists. Fans can also take their photos with life-size standees of various Korean artists. I do hope there will be a Song Joongki standee to selfie galore with (wink wink, let’s wish upon the stars in Uruk, hahaha). 🙂
See live performances from k-pop cover dance groups and singers as well as Traditional Korean cultural performances from KCC Ph’s in-house performance teams. Guests can also take advantage of free seminars and workshops and learn how to dress, look and travel k-pop style. For K-pop fans who are travelling to Korea for the first time, a seminar on Traveling to Korea will be conducted by Sparkling Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Ms. Gigi Yia. If you missed her talk last May sponsored by KTO Manila then this is your chance now. A short talk and workshop on Korean style and K-pop-inspired fashion will be held by fashion stylist and Editor RJ Roque. I am so excited on both of these talks.
Attendees will have a chance to win exciting prizes too by joining raffle draws. And last but definitely not the least, there will be a Korean Drama quiz contest to anticipate and join. Better do a refresh and review of your favorite k-drama facts before going to the event. 😉
Are you getting excited? Here’s one more: Admission is FREE! Surely every attendee would have a blast. “Happy Hallyu Day” is a special project funded by the Korea Foundation for International Cultural Exchange (KOFICE) and is part of KCC’s 5th anniversary celebration.
