We know that some of our readers hail from the Philippines, so here’s an awesome announcement for the Pinoy K-pop fans!
The Phillippine KPOP Community Inc. has organized the second “Phillippine KPOP Convention” for December 11th at the PICC Forum. Local fan clubs of over 40 KPOP groups and artists have been invited to celebrate their love of K-pop music for one spectacular day only! Thousands of screaming fans attended the first event last year, so we’re sure that this year will draw in many more.
Enthusiasts can look forward to purchasing fan goods from the fan clubs of their favorite artists, view the K-street fashion show (courtesy of YesStyle.com), and participate in the many contests held over the course of the day (such as the ‘2nd Philippine KPOP Dance Battle’, ‘KPOP Kosplay Year II’, and the ‘KPOP Idol Look-a-like’ contests). There will also be exclusive album launches from SNSD and JYJ, so be sure not to miss out!
While there are no actual tickets being sold for the event, the organizers have established an entry fee of PHP150, as all proceeds from the event will go towards GAWAD KALINGA, a charitable organization that seeks to end poverty by building homes and communities for the less-fortunate. PHP150 is the minimum fee, so attendants are encouraged to donate more if they should so choose.
Doors open at 10AM. Be sure to check out this awesome event!
Additional info about the event (including which fanclubs will be in attendance) can be found through their official website here, or through their Facebook page here.
