‘Best of Best’ K-pop acts

K-pop groups Super Junior and Girls Generation will share the stage in “Best of Best in the Philippines,” set at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, on April 12.


In a video invite, two of Super Junior’s 12 members, Lee Dong-hae and Lee Hyuk-jae (Eunhyuk), said that it’s been quite some time since they last performed in the country, and that they can’t wait to meet their Filipino fans once more.

“I’ve missed all of you guys so much,” Eunhyuk said, adding that he and the other Super Junior members ìhave very high expectationsî of the show.

Known for such electronic-laden pop-dance tunes as “Sorry, Sorry,” “Bonamana” and “Mr. Simple,” the boy band, which was formed in 2005, previously held shows in the Philippines three times–the latest one in 2013.

Girls Generation or SNSD, on the other hand, first performed in the country in 2013. Composed of eight leggy singer-dancers, the girl group debuted in 2007, and became popular for their infectious hits like “Gee,” “Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)” and “Mr. Taxi.”

Seo Ju-hyun (Seohyun), Tiffany Young and Kim Tae-yeon said they were looking to enjoy spending the day with their supporters. “We have prepared a lot and will be presenting our best in our performances,” Tae-yeon said in a video.

Also joining the two K-Pop bands is up-and-coming quartet Red Velvet, plus a surprise guest.
