The Hammingtons will travel to Manila for their first fanmeeting

This July is a great opportunity to spend with your family because South Korea’s cutest trio is visiting Manila. Sam, William, and Bentley will meet Filipino fans for the first time at The Hammingtons in Juanderland: Fanmeeting in Manila. The event will take place in the New Frontier Theater on Sunday, July 17, 2022, at 3 p.m.

The South Korean actors rose to prominence in 2016 after joining the cast of “The Return of Superman,” a reality program about celebrity fathers and their children. At first, the show featured only Sam and William (who is now five years old). Bentley (now four years old) arrived a year after his birth. The three rapidly became fan favorites, and they and the rest of the cast were awarded the renowned “Grand Prize” (also known as “Daesang”) at the 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards.

Earlier this year, the family decided to step down from the show to pursue other opportunities. One of which is “Wilbengers: Suspicious Camping Commotion,” an animated superhero film starring William and Bentley, together with their dad. The family also recently launched their new variety show titled “The Hammingtons’ Dream Closet” which airs on the ENA channel.

Outside of mainstream media, the boys are busy with their very own Youtube channel, “THE WILLBEN SHOW,” which has now amassed more than 350,000 subscribers.

Despite their packed schedule, The Hammingtons are excited to come to Manila.

“This is an amazing opportunity and we are so looking forward to meeting our fans. The last few years have been really difficult due to restrictions but finally being able to have the chance to meet some of our international fans is so exciting,” shared Sam Hammington, the family patriarch.

Sam is a New Zealander-Australian comedian who gained stardom in the South Korean reality television show “Real Men.” In 2013, he won the “Best Male Newcomer” award for his amazing performance on the show.

With only a few weeks until the fanmeet, Sam shared how the Hammingtons have begun preparation.

“We are not trying to overly prepare as we want to have an authentic experience while we are there. However, we have been trying to learn some Tagalog but it is not as easy as we thought it would be.” 

Sam also shared that they’re eager to try some of the delicious food recommended by the fans; most notably, “chocolate rice” or champorado in Tagalog.

When asked how the kids reacted to the news, the 44-year-old star candidly answered, “To be honest, I have told them but I don’t think they quite comprehend where we are going. They are excited to go on an airplane to another country. But when we get there I am sure they will be excited.”

As a parting message to fans, Sam had this to say: “First and foremost, thank you for supporting us in everything we do. We appreciate you all, and without you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. This is our opportunity to thank you in person and hope to meet as many of our fans as possible.”

The Hammingtons’ fanmeeting in Manila is only one of the family’s numerous Asian destinations planned. Fans can expect to see more of the trio in person and on various media platforms across Southeast Asia now that WILD Group is in charge of their international efforts. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday through TicketNet. The fanmeet costs PHP2, 850 (Balcony) to PHP6, 500 (Balcony) (MVP). CDM Entertainment presents The Hammingtons in Juanderland: Fanmeeting in Manila.

A New Beginning: These Four Korean Artists are Making History with Filipino Fans

It’s no secret that Filipino fans have been longing to see their favorite Korean musicians perform live. There are hushed whispers of “I miss viewing concerts!” among the rush to collect photocards and make it to online video call events. ” and “When will fan meetings resume?” ” in many places on the internet.

Fans will be in for a treat this summer, as four South Korean acts will perform in Manila. NCT DREAM, SHINee’s KEY, WEi, and ALICE will perform their biggest hits live at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on May 29, 2022 at 5 p.m. for “Begin Again: KPOP Edition.”

Aptly named “Begin Again,” this historic event marks the first international concert in the country after two years. The artists have come together to meet their beloved fans face to face, after years of purely online interactions. There’s bound to be a lot of excitement and most notably, happy tears, as idol and fan meet again. Most importantly, it’s an avenue for artists to cheer on their fans during these difficult times.

To add to the thrill, “Begin Again” checks off a couple of hallmark moments for the artists. For instance, NCT DREAM is coming back to “open the doors” of international live shows after being the last one to hold it in 2020. Meanwhile, it is KEY’s first time back to the Philippines. This time, he is performing as a solo artist. His last visit was in 2017 with his group at a benefit concert.

Alternatively, ALICE gets to meet their Pinoy fans again with more members than the last time they were here. Formerly known as ELRIS, the group has added two new members and has since rebranded to its new name. Finally, WEi sets its sights on Filipino RUi for the first time. Having debuted during a pandemic, the six-member boy group didn’t have many opportunities to meet its international fans.

All four groups are fresh off the release of their latest work. NCT DREAM successfully wrapped their “Glitch Mode” era with two million albums sold. This comeback also marked their first entry on the Billboard 200 Chart at number 50, proving their popularity on the international scene.

Meanwhile, SHINee’s KEY debuted as a solo artist in 2018 and has since released multiple albums with “Bad Love” being the latest. The mini-album came out in September of last year and had six tracks, including the titular single. It earned KEY his first music show win along with a number of critical acclaim including the third spot at NME’s “The 25 best K-pop songs of 2021.”

Despite being only two years old, boy group WEi is also a force to be reckoned with. Members DAE HYEON, DONG HAN, YONG HA, YO HAN, SEOK HWA, and JUN SEO recently released their mini-album “Love Pt.1: First Love,” last March and are drawing the attention of fans across the world. The album earned them the fifth spot on Korea’s Gaon Chart.

Finally, girl group ALICE released their latest single “Power of Love” last May 4, 2022. Members EJ, Do-A, Chaejeong, Yeonjae, Yukyung, Sohee, and Karin lent their beautiful voices to this emotional ballad. It sings of longing for a distant loved one but never losing faith in their connection—the perfect song for these tumultuous times.

Catch these four talented artists live at “Begin Again: KPOP Edition.”

Pre-selling of tickets begins on May 17, 2022 (12NN) via https://www.cdmentertainment.ph.

The Big Dome is hosting a major event!

Four of South Korea’s biggest acts will perform in Manila on May 29, 2022 at 5 p.m. at the Smart Araneta Coliseum for “Begin Again: KPOP Edition.” NCT DREAM, SHINee’s KEY, WEi, and ALICE will play their latest hit songs on the Philippine stage, and fans are sure to have a good time.

NCT DREAM will perform as the show’s headliner, following the release of their highly popular album “Glitch Mode,” which was released in March and has since sold over 2 million copies. This makes them a double million-seller for the second year in a row, a milestone just a few bands have accomplished.

Seemingly a magnet for historic achievements, NCT DREAM is set to tick another one on its checklist. Back in 2020, the group is the last to hold a live concert in the Philippines before COVID-19 lockdown. Now, they’ll be one of the first international artists to perform live again after two years. Needless to say, NCT DREAM is making dreams come true with their return to the country.

Performing alongside the group is labelmate KEY, lead dancer, and lead rapper of SHINee. In 2018, KEY made his solo debut with the single “Forever Yours,” which he quickly followed up with a full studio album titled “Face.” The album peaked at number 5 on Korea’s Gaon Chart and snagged a top 10 entry on the US World Albums Chart.

September last year, KEY released his first mini-album “Bad Love,” which earned him another top entry on the Gaon Chart. The titular track also enjoyed commercial and critical success with its Music Core win and The Ringer naming it the Best KPOP Song of 2021.

WEi, a six-member boy group from OUI Entertainment, is also joining in the fun. Though only debuting 2 years ago, the group is no stranger to the limelight. Members DAE HYEON, DONG HAN, YONG HA, YO HAN, SEOK HWA, and JUN SEO have different charms, and as a fourth-generation youth icon, WEi is loved by domestic and international fans.

In March of this year, the group released their fourth mini-album “Love Pt.1: First Love” with “Too Bad” as the main title. The album sold more than 100,000 copies and placed at number five on Korea’s Gaon Chart.

Last but definitely not the least is ALICE, consisting of members EJ, Do-A, Chaejeong, Yeonjae, Yukyung, Sohee, and Karin. In 2018, the group was named the Best Rookie Group at the 24th Korean Entertainment Arts Awards. Fresh off the May 4 release of their latest single “Power of Love,” these fearsome femmes are ready to wow on the stage.

The 2-hour event is the country’s first live KPOP show since the COVID-19 ban. Come see outstanding performers on one platform and don’t miss this historic event. Tickets go on sale for pre-sale on May 17, 2022 (12NN) via https://www.cdmentertainment.ph.
