A Successful SOLD OUT Manila Block Screening For the Love of Ji Chang Wook♥

Korean crime-action film Fabricated City, starring famed actor Ji Chang Wook (Healer, The K2) opened in Philippine cinemas last June 7. This CJ Entertainment movie is a certified local box office hit in Korea with more than 2.5 million domestic admissions since its official release on February 9 of this year.

The Philippines is one of the privileged to be included in the 31 countries outside of Korea where Fabricated City movie rights were sold. The film was screened exclusively at Robinsons Movieworld cinemas nationwide, distributed locally by VIVA International Pictures.

Filipino fans of its lead actor Ji Chang Wook were the ones most thrilled since the news of the movie hitting the Philippine big screen came. This excitement lead to a movie block screening being organized by the Manila based fan club Ji Chang Wook Philippines (JCW Ph).

JCW Ph on June 10 successfully held a SOLD OUT Block Screening of the film in partnership with VIVA International Pictures and Robinsons Movieworld. Around 200 fans with their friends and family attended the exclusive screening for those who have registered and paid in advance thru the fan club’s official Facebook page.

As a confessed fan bitten hard by Ji Chang Wook’s charm I am one of the early birds who signed-up for the event and excitedly dressed up to watch the action film with fellow JCW fanatics. 🙂

The block screening event was scheduled at two in the afternoon at Robinsons Movieworld Galleria Cinema 7 in Quezon City, Metro Manila. But as early as 12 noon a long line of excited Filipino fans can be seen outside the cinema in extreme anticipation of watching the movie; all happy faces despite the rain and heavy traffic on this day.  In fact, some walk-in attendees showed up even if it was already announced on a SOLD OUT seating capacity days prior. #ThePowerOfJiChangwook 🙂

It’s More Fun Watching Fabricated City with Fellow Filipino Ji Chang Wook Fans!

The movie screening started a few minutes past 2PM. Before the movie proper some movie trailers were shown including two Korean films next in line to premiere in the Philippine big screen, also to be distributed by VIVA International Pictures: First is the 2017 action blockbuster film Confidential Assignment starring Hyun Bin (Secret Garden, My Name is Kim Sam Soon) and the other one is the most awaited comeback of the hallyu star and Descendants of The Sun lead actor Song Joong Ki, The Battleship Island. These teasers definitely tickle more excitement from the Filipino audience.

As soon as Ji Chang Wook’s voice aired and his close up battle face registered on the big screen loud screams automatically filled the cinema, as if the actor is present right there and then. Oh well it’s every attendee’s wish of course. ~~

Beyond being die-hard fans of the movie’s lead actor, the Pinoy movie audience’s great response during and after the movie lies in the overall execution of the film.  Fabricated City boasts of a very intelligent plot as well as twists, like can those happen in real life? The battle of the expert gamer team vs. the technological savvy villain towards the end surely left every moviegoer with a Wow experience.

Fabricated City showcased Ji Chang Wook at this best as the ‘King of Action’ not only in dramas but now conquering the movie scene as well, as proved by his Best New Actor in Film category nomination at the recent Baeksang Arts Awards. Quoting hellokpop’s review: “He is strong in fight scenes yet memorable in emotional frames” as the movie narrated the main character Kwon Yoo’s (played by Ji) revenge to the cruel injustice of being framed-up.

Ji’s first lead role film is truly worth the SOLD out efforts of the Philippine fan club who organized the block screening.  Ji Chang Wook deserves to be watched on the big screen. ♥ ♥ ♥

A Mini Fan Gathering to Remember!

Korean actor Ji Chang Wook (well known for Korean dramas Healer and The K2), recently kicked off his 2017 Asia Tour with 2017 JCW 1st Fan Meeting in Bangkok last Jan 21. The day after his successful Thailand fan meeting, fans of Ji from the Philippines gathered to celebrate and share their love for the handsome Korean star.

Ji Chang Wook Philipines (JCW Ph), a Philippine fan club of Ji Chang Wook based in Manila organized and held its first fan gathering dubbed as “Ji Chang Wook Ph 1st Fan Gathering in Manila” on January 22 at Ulkeun Korean BBQ House, Malate Manila. As a confessed fan of him since last year (oh yes I’m a late bloomer fan), I can’t miss this event though I live far from the venue.


JCW PH 1st Fan Gathering in Manila poster

The event started with some opening remarks from the head admins of the fan club gathering. It was followed by a “getting to know” segment where each of the attendees introduced themselves and mentioned when/how they started to know and love Ji Chang Wook. Mostly became fans from watching Healer and The K2 series (much like me) but some were hooked even beyond Empress Ki period drama days.


Games, Photo ops and more!

The fun and excitement continued as JCW-related games and raffle were played. Everyone actively participated in the trivia game as well as the popular Filipino quiz ‘Pinoy Henyo’, where in a pair of participants team up to guess the word that is flashed on the forehead of one of them by saying/asking clues answerable by Yes or No. The words are of course related to Mr. Ji such as title of dramas he did as well as the characters he portrayed.  JCW-inspired locally made items like posters and mini standees were given as prizes.

While our Kim Je Ha is back to Korea from Thailand at the time of this event, his life size standee made every attendee fan kilig as if the manly handsome actor is just right in front of us. See below happy faces as each made their way to pose with ‘him’. ♥♥♥


Early dinner was served while each table ‘spazzed’ over the recent activities of the suave good-looking actor, mostly about his Thailand FM.


Ji Chang Wook Ph 1st Fan Gathering in Manila – Dinner time

Since the announcement of 2017 Ji Chang Wook Asia Tour last December through Arirang World Facebook page, every Filipino fan can’t help but wish Philippines would be included. The hype that there’s a possibility of Manila being one of the stops in Ji’s Asia Tour started on that very same post when Arirang tagged the facebook page of Ji Chang Wook Philippines along with other countries’ fan club pages.

Our wishing game is further strengthened when local TV network ABS-CBN got the rights to air his latest action drama series The K2 in Philippine television.  The buzz that Philippines has also bought the rights (or is in talks) to his box office hit and first leading role film Fabricated City to be shown here adds more excitement and positive hopes to us Filipinos that we will be seeing Wookie in flesh before he enlist and fulfill his military duties. ♥♥♥

The fan gathering lasted for about 3 hours.  Each attendee got to take home a loot bag of souvenirs items from the event (locally made button pins, wallet-size photos, etc.) sealed with photo booth photos.

Check this out for the complete set of pictures from the photo booth:

Yours truly didn’t go home without some take away fangirling memories. ^_^

And but of course the day won’t be complete without group photo ops. ♥♥♥

For the mean time it’s a sure thing that we will support Ji through his projects that will soon be shown here and any new drama or film lined up for him. Aja and keeping our fingers crossed!  ♥♥♥

Thank you so much Ji Chang Wook Philippines for hosting this 1st Fan Gathering in Manila.

To those who have missed this event, JCW Ph is planning to hold a bigger one this April. Like and follow them on Facebook and twitter below for updates on this and recent JCW news:

The much awaited annual Starbucks Christmas tradition in the Philippines has already started this November 2 but I’ve got the chance to experience it days earlier. Last Oct 29, 2016 my Starbucks addict self excitedly dressed up to attend the 2016 Starbucks Christmas Grand Launch at the Grand Atrium of Shangri-la Plaza Mall.


The launch event was held for two days, Oct 29 and 30 free of charge to the public. Attendees just have to show a screenshot of their My Starbucks Rewards account page to enter and be given a Cheer Passport.


I have no idea of what’s in store for me there aside from seeing first hand and having a chance of winning the 2017 planners but since Starbucks equates to Goodvibes for me I immediately ticked “Going” at the official FB event page and saved the log-in screenshot before heading there.

I was not able to enter last year’s launch since I came in too late from work and the program is about to end. So literally it’s my first time. In my excitement I accidentally erased the photo while lining up hahaha, and so i went to a wifi ready place just to resave, lol. 😛


As I line up again that was the time I noticed a lot of booths and baristas were all around the venue, hmmmm…I smell something thrilling fun right there and then.

When the Cheer Passport and Starbucks Promo card were given to me the barista in the registration booth explained that I need to complete a total of 5 stamps by doing the activities/challenges in each of the 5 Cheer Stations inside to get a Special Gift. Ok, lets do this. And so I entered and to my surprise this greeted me: Cheer Station 1 – Christmas Selfie Challenge. I picked from a bowl of paper slips what I needed to do and tada, the challenge for me is “Take a selfie with a Starbucks Barista” and upload it on your social media account.

Hihihi, OMG, Kilig much, Im game!

(I said while smiling ear to ear, hahaha) ♡♥♡


The kilig turned into a different kind of cloud nine. It feels overwhelmingly heaven seeing everything Starbucks and Christmas and baristas so I decided to save the best for last and just go on the next 4 Cheer Stations before scoring that “selfie“.

Oh well the real reason is that I just wanted to look around for the most charming one and find the guts too. It’s harder in real life than what my imagination depicted, hahaha. 😛

Let’s get it on with the next Cheer Stations’ activities. Cheer Station 2 is the “Sips of Cheer” where you are asked to try on the new Christmas beverage Santa Hat Dark Mocha Frappuccino. Isn’t it so great, a free taste and you got a stamp.



This new beverage is the perfect Christmas frappe for me. Its bittersweet mix of Dark mocha, strawberry and java chips is just right and the coffee is not too strong yet it can perk you up. Finally my acidic stomach found a match and I can complete the right side of the planner promo card faster. Thank you Starbucks for this. ♡♥♡


Cheer Station 3: Flavors of Christmas is some kind of a memory game wherein you need to get 2 matches by flipping the cards of Starbucks flavors. I didn’t get a match here yet there is a prize item win or loose and a stamp of course for trying.



Cheer Station 4: Celebrate our Beloved Christmas Blend is a free taste station that comes with a lecture from the charming baristas of the choiced Christmas blend beans and how the normal brew and “siphoning” produces different levels of taste and coffee aroma. Yes I can be a Starbucks barista now hahaha. 😛



The last is probably the hardest for me. Cheer Station 5: Crafted by Hand and Heart needs the artist in you by designing a blank Starbucks Christmas greeting card.

I have no sense of the visual arts and its my hatest subject in school yet I have no choice but to draw and play with the gliterry and metallic pens/markers provided. Here are some of the finished product of others, nevermind mine hahaha.


So where is the Starbucks Barista selfie? Ok here it is, I can’t do it with the one I find the most charming but definitely it was one kilig flattering moment hihi. ♡♥♡


Lol! Its not just a selfie right. Caption it for yourselves hahaha. They even let me be a barista for a day in the next photo. ☆♡★


Before claiming the gift item its now time to get a first hand look at the colorful 2017 Starbucks Planner designs.


This year it comes in two hip and classy designs: the Blue Siren and Coffee Stains and it comes with an erasable pen, magnetic bookmark and a pouch to keep it neat. Nicee right! ★☆★


The Christmas tumblers are so eyecandy too as well as the new Starbucks card designs. Cant resist to touch and took photos.




I really did enjoy the event. So much goodvibes all around. ♡♥♡


Here are some more photos of the crowd and inside the event.






Here’s my completed Cheer Passport and my take home items and happy heart inside ♡★♡



Here’s one more takeaway~ I didn’t get a selfie but at least a photo with the most charming barista of the day (left), hahahaha. ♥♡♥


Thank you so much and Congratulations Starbucks Philippines for a very creative, interactive and enjoyable launch full of Starbucks Christmas spirit and goodvibes. Will forever be a Starbucks baby.

Even if I was not able to wait for the planner raffle draw it’s all worth it that I came here. Indeed an event worth blogging. ★☆★

A lot of k-pop concerts have been staged in Manila for the last 2 years and this summer of 2015 alone back-to-back concerts are lined up from Super Junior to Girls Generation to Epik High to Vixx among others.  But there’s just one that sets itself apart from the busy k-pop scene here in the Philippines and the one I’m really looking forward to.  The Korean drama OST Queen Baek Ji Young is coming to Manila and set to serenade us for the very first time.  This will be a one-night only concert entitled Baek Z Young CLOSE UP 2015 to be held on April 15, 2015 – 8:30PM at the 1,500-seater Newport Performing Arts Theater at Resorts World Manila. The voice behind a lot of memorable k-dramas (Secret Garden, Iris, Hwang Jini, Rooftop Prince, The Greatest Love, and Gu Family Book among others) will not just be heard but soon will be seen performing live onstage. Its just music to the ears of every korean drama fan.

According to her agency Music Works Baek Ji Young will bring to stage not just her ballad songs but also her dance hits from which she has started. Upon reading this info I traced a lil’ bit of her career history: Baek Ji Young started her career back in 1999 with her first album Sorrow.  She was first known in the Korean dance scene through her first single Choice a Korean pop song with Latin beats (one of the first of its kind) before she made her way to being a Korean ballad queen.  She even did collaboration tracks with 2PM’s Taecyeon (My Ear Candy) and Beast’s Jun Hyung (Good Boy). If I haven’t googled and read I would not know these interesting facts. 🙂

Since the concert is just days to go let’s imagine what the feel of the both soulful and dancy evening it will be.  Baek Ji Young participated in various korean dramas soundtrack, most of which are hits including Dont Forget for Iris, Spring Rain for Gu Family Book, After A Long Time for Rooftop Prince and the most famous to date That Woman from Secret Garden which won her Outstanding Korean Drama OST at the 2011 Seoul International Drama Awards.  I’m really anticipating this korean drama stage like below videos of her of That Woman Live performance at 2012 Seoul Music Awards and the Rooftop Prince OST MV with the memorable scenes. ❤

That Woman – OST Secret Garden

After A long Time – OST Rooftop Prince

One of the most anticipated part of the concert is that Baek Ji Young will do a live performance for the very first time of Because of You, OST of the just concluded Hyde, Jekyll, Me, the comeback drama of Hyun Bin.  This song became an immediate hit right after its first release late in January this year and charted very well in various music charts.  We are sooo lucky to be the first to hear this live. OMG, a fan of this song and drama here, hihihi ❤ How can one not love this so sentimental song that made Hyde, Jekyll, Me hit us right in the heart.  See below fanmade music video.

Because of You – OST Hyde, Jekyll, Me

Baek Ji Young is also expected to sing these two ballad hits of her that made her popular: Like Being Hit by a Bullet (2008) a mid-tempo ballad and I wont Love (2006) which is her very first ballad song coming from her dance with latin beats genre.

Like Being Hit by a Bullet

I Wont Love

As mentioned Baek will also perform her dance hits particularly the collab songs with popular kpop idols Taecyeon (My Ear Candy) and Jun Hyung (Good Boy).  Though the good looking idols wont be with her onstage she is expected to deliver a wow performance with her dancers to show her versatility as a singer. See below music videos of the said dancy techno songs for a preview. 😉

My Ear Candy feat Taecyeon of 2PM

Good Boy feat. Yong Jun Hyung of Beast

As much as Korean drama and Ms. Baek Ji Young’s Filipino fans were so excited for her first concert here, she herself is so eager to meet us Filipinos. OMG it’s just a few days to go and if you still haven’t secured a ticket you can buy from any Tony and Jackey Salon nationwide.  See this link for info.  You may also contact Ms. Han for ticket and seat inquiry at +63-977-181-1738 or email her at miraaan.han@gmail.com.  You may also like the concert’s official facebook page Baek Ji Young Close Up 2015 for more updates  and details.  Ticket prices are as follows: Patron-Php 6950, VIP-Php 5600, Pemiere A-Php 4600, Balcony C-Php 3500 and Balcony W-Php 2500.
