Boices Rocked the House at CNBLUE Album Launch

Last Saturday (May 21), more than a thousand Boices trooped to the four (4) participating record stores (Astroplus The Block, Astroplus Mall of Asia, Odyssey Megamall and Odyssey SM Bacoor) and showed everyone that Boices do have the 'loudest voice' in the K-pop fandom. They were celebrating the Philippine release of FNC Music's bestselling quartet CNBLUE's album "First Step".

Filipino Boices rocked the house and bought CNBLUE's latest CD "First Step". Other releases like the previous mini-albums "Bluetory" and "Bluelove" were also snapped up by fans because the Philippine version came with Bonus DVD featuring their MV. Of course, the most exciting part of the Album Launch Event (dubbed as "Step By Step: CNBLUE 'First Step' Album Launch") was the awesome freebies the fans got from buying the CDs, not only that, even the CNBLUE Philippines Fanclub and Astroplus & Odyssey record stores were giving away their own CNBLUE freebies!! It was really raining freebies on that rainy Saturday.

One of the most touching scenes during the event was the all filled up "CNBLUE Decoded Wall", wherein Boices shared their feelings for the boys via handwritten messages and illustrations. Boices have indeed spoken and their huge turnout last Saturday only proves that CNBLUE does have a massive following in the Philippines! You can check out their Facebook Fanpage (http://www.facebook.com/pages/CN-BLUE-PHILIPPINES/207429376312), which is one of the Top 5 K-pop Fanclub Facebook Fanpages in the country. Album buyers can be part of CNBLUE Philippines fan club by filling up the membership form, plus a chance to win CNBLUE standee by joining the "Voice It Out, Boice" Contest.

Boices also enjoyed and cheered loudly for the CNBLUE cover group Fanboice who brought their instruments and performed CNBLUE hits at three of the participating record stores! The fans went wild because these guys sang in Korean! It was indeed the next best thing. Check out their Facebook Fanpage (http://www.facebook.com/pages/FanBoice/170518406310461).

Special thanks to CNBLUE Philippines Fan Club and all their hardworking staff members, Astroplus, Odyssey and MYX, the #1 music channel in the Philippines and most of all all, much love to all Boices who patiently waited for the Philippine album release and showed the K-pop fandom that Boices do have loudest voices!
