Top 10 K-pop fandoms in the Philippines

/ 08:01 PM February 28, 2017

There’s no doubt that the Hallyu wave is taking the Philippines by storm. Left and right you can find K-pop related merchandise (*ehem* EXO and BTS shirts *ehem*) and hearing their songs in public (“Fantastic Baby”, anyone?) is becoming more and more common.

Their success is rooted from the hard work they’ve put into their craft—from the intensive Korean training programs to the hectic schedules of on-demand idols—and of course, we’ve got to give due thanks to the fans!

Speaking of fans, the fandom culture in K-pop groups is highly regarded. These fangirls/boys take their job (fangirling/boying) seriously. Do not mess with them!


In line with this, the following is a list of fandoms that are believed to be the major fandoms in the Philippines.


(Reminder: this list is in alphabetical order—so there’s no need for one fandom to be jealous of another, ’cause we’re all in this together!)
