Has the Hallyu wave already gotten to you? One of the surefire signs that point to “yes” is if you find yourself jamming to the bops brought to you by all the K-pop groups invading the music scene worldwide (BTS, anyone?). It’s almost impossible to stop their music from playing in your head and trying to dance along to their synchronized choreography. Thankfully, we’ve got a number of these groups coming to the Philippines this year so you can feed the inner fan in you!
Get ready to scream “saranghae” to all these K-pop acts coming to Manila this 2018.
