PEP.ph | Korean Cultural Festival (in Manila) to feature K-pop boyband Shinee

For Pinoy K-pop fans, November is the season to be jolly.

To cap the year-long celebration of 60 years of diplomatic relations between Korea and the Philippines, the Korean Embassy will hold on November 19-27 the Korean Cultural Festival, which will let Filipinos have a taste of Korean food, dance, music, theater, and arts.

But the most-awaited event in the week-long festival is the free K-pop concert scheduled on November 27. It will feature popular Korean front acts like boyband SHINee, jazz band Winterplay, and energetic rap duo Mighty Mouth.

In an email message to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Blaise Regacho, Executive Assistant on Economic & Cultural Affairs for the Korean Embassy, said the concert was borne out of several petitions by avid K-pop fans in the country, to bring Korean stars to the Philippines. SHINee was the first group they were able to get, she added.

Composed of five the boys Onew, Taemin, Jong-Hyun, Key, and Min-Ho, SHINee is known for the group's danceable contemporary R&B songs. Since their debut last year, they have won music awards including Best Newcomer Artist in the 18th Seoul Music Awards. SHINee's fashion style of high-top sneakers, skinny jeans, and colorful sweaters created the "SHINee Trend" that's popular among college youth in Korea.
