“Be one of KTO’s 20 WOW KOREA SUPPORTERS!”
I can still recall when I saw this post in Facebook when a fellow Korean fangirl friend tagged me last Aug 31. My initial reaction is “OMG! WOW! What’s this?” Everything Korean sounds like a happy pill to me so I immediately clicked on the post and found these details.
“Korea Tourism Organization Manila is in search for some of the biggest Korea lovers who will help us spread the word about Korea and KTO through SNS. KTO Manila will pick 20 Wow Supporters and the most active and the best of the 20 will win a round trip ticket to Korea. This is exclusively open to the members of the Philippine Kpop Committee, Inc. fanclub affiliates…”
Here is the photo posted by KTO Manila in their Facebook page detailing the mechanics and requirements of the search. Basically applicants should:
1st -Like Korea Tourism Organization Manila Office page
2nd – Like and Share this post on your wall (Make sure to set it as public)

I am really super thrilled knowing this thing. One of the important qualifications to join aside from being a Filipino citizen of legal age and active in social networking sites one must be a member of Philippine Kpop Committee, Inc. or PKCI affiliate fanclubs. I’m so lucky enough that one of the Korean fan clubs I’m a member of is affiliated. Yey! Wahhhhhh! It really pays to be a true blue k-fangirl. Super thanks that Eels Philippines (a Jang Keun Suk fanclub) is included in the list. Love you more Sukkie. ♥ You can click here for a full list of fanclub affiliates of PKCI.
Alright so much for the fangirl mode, in short I sent my application form through Facebook message on the very first day of application period which is the 1st of September. What a way to start the Christmas “ber” months. 🙂
I’m really crossing my fingers on this thing. More than the chance of winning that round trip ticket to Korea (every k-fangirl’s dream) the rare chance of being an official KTO WOW Korea Supporter and be recognized not just locally but also by the Korea Tourism Organization headquarters in Seoul is a true privilege. It’s like winning an SVIP ticket to a k-pop concert multiplied a hundred times. LOL! I’m really dreaming of being a K-ambassador-like personality and spread not alone the k-pop fever but all the other aspects of Hallyu or Korean wave and their culture as well here and there. Been a lover of Korean dramas since the early 2000’s and now been into these hallyu fever like crazy – K-pop, Korean food and fashion, blogging about Korean stuff and just recently even attended a Korean culture caravan event hosted by Korean Cultural Center and my alma mater University of the Philippines Diliman. To be chosen as a WOW Korea supporter will be a dream come true to complete the list of being an official and full pledged koreanophile. Fighting! 🙂
So for all of you who have the same aspirations as me and haven’t submitted their application yet, hurry come and join the fun. And for those who have applied we still have roughly a week or so to spread the Korean vibes and promote KTO Manila’s activities and all. Application period runs until September 30. So excited for the announcement of the 20 lucky ones on October 1. 😉 Aja and good luck to all of us! Hwaiting! ♥
