Less than a month away from CN Blue’s Manila concert (to which I still don’t have a ticket… surprisingly, I seem not to mind so much), here comes the announcement that Lee Min Ho is coming back to Manila, this time for a concert. Yes, you read that right, a CONCERT. (Rizza asked me on Facebook: “Can he sing?” Me: “Does it matter?” ) The concert is on July 6, 2013 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
It’s a good thing for my wallet that it won’t be the end of the world for me if I don’t get to see Lee Min Ho sing. Actually, it may be a good thing in general because I most probably will end up bitching about it since I’m not a fan. (What am I saying, it doesn’t matter if I’m a fan or not, I always end up bitching about something if I find something worth bitching about.) I did enjoy his fanmeet for Bench, though, but this is a concert so it’s definitely an entirely different banana altogether. It’s also too close to my Korea trip, so I might give this one a pass. I dunno, we’ll see.
I’m definitely NOT giving this event a pass, though:
Yep, it’s Alexander Lee Eusebio’s turn to have a fanmeet in Manila! It’s on July 27, 2013. I’m not sure if they have officially announced the venue yet; I’ll update this post once I get the go-signal.
I read that tickets are selling really fast, so better grab one before it’s too late. It’s quite affordable, especially if you’re a fan and you’ve missed Xander so much. I assure you, if this fanmeet will turn out to be like the one I attended in Hong Kong, it’s going to be a blast. Which is very likely, because (1) it’s from the same group that brought Park Shin Hye in Manila and I’ve read nothing but great things about that event; and (2) Alexander is not a boring person to begin with,
By the way, pardon me for bitching a little bit, but I’ve seen some comments from fans who are complaining that the photo op that comes with the VVIP ticket will be a group photo. Seriously, have these so called K-pop addicts know what kind of fandom they are in? Since when have we seen a Meet and Greet (paid or not) where the artist agrees to have solo photo ops with each attendee? Even non-Korean artists don’t do that, it’s always a group photo. Having said that, I assure you again, if Xander ends up doing what he did in Hong Kong where he shook hands and exchanged pleasantries with every person who went on stage to do the group photo op with him, that is already worth more than the photo op itself. Learn to appreciate small blessings.
