The Korean Wave, or hallyu, has put Korea on the map as the entertainment and pop culture capital when it comes to the latest in fashion, films, trends, and most especially, music.
One of the forerunners of hallyu, Super Junior (SuJu) is no stranger to this amazing phenomenon. No other Korean group has achieved extraordinary success as they had, sweeping fans of all ages, not only in Asian countries such as Japan, Thailand, China, Taiwan, among others, but also in Europe as well—gaining solid fans in France, Germany, and the UK. The 12-member boy group debuted in 2005 and defined the idol genre by covering all forms of entertainment—from singing, hosting and acting to modeling. Their hottest hits include “Sorry Sorry,” “Bonamana,” “Mr. Simple” and “Mamacita.”
SuJu’s sister group from SM Entertainment, Girls’ Generation, is the epitome of girl power as the eight-member group garnered international fame through their trademark upbeat and catchy songs, unforgettable dance moves, lively personality, and incredible stage presence. The beautiful, model-esque girls are trending worldwide for their fashion sense, beauty, and talent. Several of the girls namely Yoona, Sooyoung, and Yuri have made a successful crossover to the world of dramas, starring alongside Korea’s A-list actors. Girls’ Generations’ phenomenal songs “Gee,” “Genie,” “I Got a Boy” and “Mr. Mr.” garnered unparalleled record hit sales and millions of followers.
With SuJu and Girls’ Generation setting the stage and opening opportunities for other artists to enter the world music scene, a new batch of upcoming talents are on the rise. Following the international clamor for K-pop stars, Red Velvet, a four-member group of multinational origin that combines a balance of fierce, cute, and a youthful image, is the latest group to debut in 2014, with hit songs “Happiness” and “Be Natural.”
The Philippines is no exception when it comes to being swept up by the hallyu wave. With a solid Filipino fanbase, all four groups, including the special guest performer, will finally greet their followers and astound them with amazing performances on April 12 at Philippine Arena.
This is not the first time that SuJu and Girls’ Generation will be in the country, as they filled concert stages to the brim with delighted, screaming young fans before. The younger group, Red Velvet, is also set to make records with an explosive concert and never-before-seen performances which they have prepared especially for Filipino fans.
Shuttle express to and from Philippine Arena will be available with minimal charges.
