As fans, our ultimate goal is to see our idols in person, and fan meets allow us to fulfill this dream. But with our current situation, I guess that dream will have to take a backseat. On the bright side, we can always hope for the day when we can see them in the flesh again—so let’s take this time to do some serious ~*iponing*~ muna!


While we look forward to our next fan meet, let’s reminisce about the K-drama celebs who have been to Manila to meet their Filipino fans! Here’s a list to inspire you, complete with fan cams. Enjoy!

7. Lee Jong Suk’s Crank Up In Manila Fan Meeting

Date: November 18, 2018

The Big Dome went wild when Lee Jong Suk entered the stage and the crowd kept that energy 'til the end! He played the piano, talked about his K-dramas, and shared how *intense* his kissing scenes were with his W: Two Worlds co-star, Han Hyo Joo.

Almost a decade ago we started our KPOP journey at the Araneta Coliseum. So it was with some nostalgia that last November 18 we produced our first ever K-DRAMA extravaganza in an arena-style setting! Thousands upon thousands of screaming fans. One Korean star. @jongsuk0206 did not name his Fanmeeting "Crank Up" as an understatement. Literally, this demure almost placid figure, that seemingly glides on to the stage, has the uncanny ability to switch off fan inhibitions with a glance and a bat of an eyelash. For all of you that witnessed this event filled with energy and emotion magically emanating from this amazing unique star, we thank you for coming out and being part of our journey! #GlobeKPOP #LeeJongSukinMNL
