APINK Surprised at Filipino Fans’ Discipline

By  | 

With their immense popularity not just in South Korea but all around Asia, APINK was surprised to know that Filipino fans were disciplined and well-behaved during their stay in Manila.

Last June 24 APINK, alongside big artists like One Republic, Far East Movement, Gary Valenciano with son Gab Valenciano, Nadine Lustre, James Reid and Bebe Rexha, took the Philippines stage at MTV Music Evolution 2016 in Manila.  

Before the said concert, Eunji, Bomi, Chorong, Na-Eun, Hayoung and Namjoo sat down with Hellokpop for an exclusive interview. During the talk, Bomi said that she was surprised to see how well-behaved Filipino fans were. She sort of expected that there would be fans hugging them all of a sudden but it was amazing for her how the fans were just watching from afar.

Eunji then revealed it was shocking for her that the fans were a lot younger. She thought that fans would be in their mid 20’s, as she expected that younger people would not know them.

APINK comeback rumours?

Aside from the one-on-one interview, the girls also answered questions from the media. During the press conference, the girls were asked about their rumoured comeback. Eunji replied that they were not yet sure about the comeback plans but assured fans they would definitely love their next concept.
