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. KCC in the Philippines was established on July 19, 2011 to further promote the Korean culture and facilitate a wider and more expansive cultural exchange.  Let’s thank KOFICE, KCCPh and PKCI for this FREE event and wish KCCPh a very Happy 5th Anniversary!

More details and announcements as well as instructions on how to get passes are to be announces soon. Please keep posted on Philippine K-pop Convention, Inc. (PKCI) FB page at www.facebook.com/philkpopcomm or follow them on Instagram and twitter at @kpopconph. Mark your calendars and see you all k-fangirls on July 23 at SM Skydome from 10AM – 5PM and let’s celebrate Hallyu! ❤

The event is followed by KCC’s annual K-Pop talent competition, “Pinoy K-Pop Star at 6-9pm.

“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)
3rd – Download & Fill up the application form

Kindly click here to get into KTO Manila’s post to join ♥ 

KTO 20 Wow Supporters Search

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!
