With a spectacular line-up, Hallyuween was the first of its kind, pooling the bests Korean and local acts on its pioneer show.
Before the main event happened, there were a lot of activities inside the MOA Arena. Local fanclubs had set-up their tables showcasing different official and unofficial merch of the artists they support. Aside from that, they also prepared some games and prizes for the attendees.
Opened by the Filipino drag queens Lady Gagita , Lady Morgana, and Minty Fresh’s, their performances of “Paparazzi”, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”, and “Break Free” respectively set the bar high of an extravagant night.
Singer-songwriter Gaho with the band Kave were the first Korean acts on stage and performed K-Dramas’ official soundtracks such as “Start Over” from Itaewon Class and “Running” from Start Up. It was the group’s first visit in the Philippines and were truly grateful for the fans’ hospitality.
K-pop group Pentagon followed with their set, pumping the hype with performances with some of their songs – “Feelin’ Like”, “Sparkling Night”, and “Shine”. It has been a few years since the boys last visited the country and they just showed how much they missed their fans.
The only Ppop group, BGYO, brought their game on with their debut song “The Light”, “The Baddest”, and their latest release “Magnet”, wowing the audience especially those who just seen them live for the first time.
Co-ed K-pop group, KARD is not a newbie when it comes to the Filipino crowd and was all-in with their Halloween costumes – skeleton, cat woman, pirate, and a Dracula – performing some of their hits like “Ring the Alarm”, “Oh NaNa”, and “Don’t Recall”.
Korean hip hop trio, Epik High got the crowd wild with their set. They performed their hits: “One”, “Bhurj Kalifa”, “Don’t Hate Me”, and the crowd favorite “Born Hater”.
The K-Pop queen, CL headlined the concert gracing the stage with her performances such as “HWA”, “5 Star”, and “Hello Bitches”. She got everyone hooked with just merely her presence.
The party was visited by zombies surprising and scaring the attendees before it was capped off by the sought after Korean DJ, DJ Soda.
Despite the storm “Paeng” hitting Metro Manila, it didn’t stop the fans to party and still dressed up in their Halloween costumes to fit the vibe. An online streaming was also set up for those who were not able to join the live concert.
Hallyuween is presented by Pulp Live World.
