Memorable moments during MBC Show Champion in Manila

October 03, 2016

September 3, 2016, MBC Show Champion in Manila happened. It was produced by All Access Productions (same producer of GOT7 1st Fanmeeting in the Philippines). Even though I was a bit busy with school and some fanclub duties, I managed to get some tickets and attend this event.
There were nine (9) artists who performed here: Gugudan, KNK, Astro, Sonamoo, M&D, AOA, BAP, VIXX, and BTS. The ticket prices are: SVIP - P 8000, VIP - P 5500, SILVER - P 3000, and GEN AD - P 1575. At first, there were no GEN AD tickets but weeks before the concert, they released GEN AD tickets.

I actually ordered my tickets through Super Junior's PH fanclub, Super Junior United Philippines (SJUPH) so I will be together with other ELFs. Good thing, their chosen block is at the middle, it is my preferred seat. I bought SILVER tickets since I was not that prepared for them.

Few hours before the concert...

I arrived at the venue an hour before they open the gates and within that one hour, I was able to meet some of my online friends.

This is Michelle unnie! We met online 6 years ago and this was our first time meeting each other!

The one with braces was my former schoolmate, Carle. She is with her friends.

My concert buddy (checkered) - Emarie. My classmate (black) - Jaja. And her friend.
These photos were taken as we line up. The line was long and there were really a lot of people. But it's fine since I'm with my friends.

During the concert...

This is our view from the Upper Box section. I wasn't expecting that we were a bit closer. The concert started at about 7:15pm. The hosts for the event were Super Junior's GODDESS, Kim Heechul and popular comedian Kim Shin Young.


I was so happy that Gugudan was actually part of the line-up. I'm not really a huge fan of the group, but I followed some of their members since they were former contestants of Produce 101. Produce 101 is a show in South Korea wherein they will form a girl group of 11 members from different companies. Three of Gugudan members - Nayoung, Mina, and Sejeong - were included there. Mina and Sejeong were able to reach the end and be a part of the girl group known as IOI. Just in case you didn't know, I am a huge fan of Sejeong.

Gugudan is a new 9-member girl group of Jellyfish entertainment. The members are: Mimi, Hana, Haebin, Nayoung, Sejeong, Sally, Soyee, Mina and Hyeyeon. They debuted last June 28, 2016, with the title song, Wonderland.

During the concert they performed their song Wonderland.


KNK is a 5-member boy group from YNB Entertainment. The members are Youjin, Seungjun, Inseong, Jihun, Heejun.

Thanks to Google I was able to mention their names. I know the group KNK but I am not spazzing about them. When I saw them performed on stage, I was a bit surprise because they were good, vocally.


I can say that Astro is one of the cutest groups I've seen in this event. Aside from the fact that their clothes reminds me of my childhood days, but they are definitely fun seeing at the stage.

Astro is a 6-member boy group from Fantagio Entertainment. The members are: Jinjin, MJ, Eunwoo, Moonbin, Rocky, and Sanha. I have seen a lot about them since their debut and now I know why there are a lot of people that stan them. Their coordination were so good.

Aside from their cute and lively performance, they made me squeal when they did the famous game here in the Philippines, "Pak Ganern". If given the chance, I would like to see them perform again soon.


Sonamoo is a 7-member girl group from TS Entertainment. The group consists of Sumin, Minjae, Dana, Nahyun, Euijin, High.D and NewSun.

Once again, thanks to google, I was able to mention their names. I was quite confused with Sonamoo and Mamamoo because they both have "moo" at the end of their group's name. But I do not spazz both of them. Sorry. Not because I hate them, but I cannot stan everyone because of limited time and budget.

I was amazed with them since their vocals are quite good. I hope they will be given more attention soon.


One of the main reasons why I went in this concert is to see again the ultimate goddess of Super Junior, no other than Kim Heechul. I am an ELF ever since and I support each member!
M&D is a rock group formed by SM Entertainment in 2011. The members are Super Junior's Heechul and TRAX's Kim Jungmo. I was an SM stan that's why I know them. But I never imagined Jungmo to be this handsome in person.

But the most memorable thing that happened during their performance is that they sang one of Super Junior's legendary song, Rokkugo! I don't know why but it feels like the whole Arena sang with them. Now, I NEED SS7 because I am missing Super Junior!


To be very honest I only know Seolhyun and Jimin in AOA. And I am really looking forward for their performance. And truly, they were one of those who made the stage hot. Sexy and hot are the words that will really describe them.

AOA is an eight-member girl group of FNC Entertainment. The members are: Choa, Jimin, Yuna, Youkyung, Chanmi, Hyejeong, Seolhyun, and Mina.


I knew VIXX because of my friend, Michelle unnie. She really likes VIXX and when I saw them perform live, now I know the reason why she likes them. Aside from the fact that they are good looking (and hot ~ hi to Ken's forehead and Ravi's body lololol), they are really talented.

Their whole performance was really good and I am looking forward to see one of their solo concert here in the Philippines. I am just sad that Leo was not able to attend the concert because of his injury. But the good thing is, he is doing well now. I just hope that VIXX will be recognized even more. They deserve it.

VIXX is a six-member group formed by Jellyfish Entertainment. VIXX consists of N, Leo, Ken, Ravi, Hongbin and Hyuk.


I guess as time passes by, the more extreme the performances are. I really admired the boy groups for really giving their very best in every performance they make. I am not saying that girl groups don't give their best but compared to boy groups, their performance are much more energetic and livelier.
Here goes BAP. I always hear this group but I do not know the members. But their performance gave me chills. To the fans of BAP, I am proud of you for choosing a great group!

BAP  is a South Korean boy group formed in 2011 under TS Entertainment. The members are Yongguk, Youngjae, Daehyun, Himchan, Jongup, and Zelo.


And lastly, the main reason why I wanted to attend MBC Show Champ in Manila, BTS. I got frustrated in their concert here last July because I wasn't able to buy a ticket. SOLD OUT. And I felt so desperate to watch them live. So yeah, I decided to see them in this MBC Show Champ even though I know they'll only perform two or three songs.

But they didn't fail me. They were really a group to be admired. I noticed Jin so much since he is really handsome. He caught my attention. Same goes with Jhope and Jungkook. Jhope was just wearing a white shirt and pants with a cap but he caught my attention. I DO NOT KNOW WHY. Well, Jungkook, he is always in the middle and so energetic. But of course, my bias Rapmon didn't fail me with his English skills.

BTS is a seven-member group from Big Hit Entertainment. The members are Rapmonster, Jin, Jungkook, V, Jhope, Suga and Jimin.

It was a great show. My money is worth it. I hope there will be more KPOP events here but not this year. Let my wallet rest first. But seriously, I'm so happy I watched it.
