AxisB Makes Valentine’s Extra Special For Filipino Fans
This year Valentine’s was made sweeter by AxisB!
The Philippine temperature may have been dropping in the past few days, but for fans of Korean boy group AxisB, the chills were incomparable to the warmth and intensity the quintet has shown.
Since their arrival in the archipelago last February 13, the five-member boy group made sure that no gush of cold wind will come in between their solid performances in various places of Metro Manila.
Doah, Junghoon, Daeyoung, Juno, and Honey kicked off their first Philippine Tour at Robinsons Town Mall, Malabon last Valentine’s Day. On February 15, the boys held a private dinner and fan meeting with lucky fans at KPub BBQ in Bonifacio Global City.
February 16 saw fans in an extended Valentine’s celebration with AxisB at Robinsons Forum, Mandaluyong. With screaming fan girls and boys alike, AxisB opened its third show with its first digital single, Curious, released on September 28, 2016. The song marked AxisB’s Korean debut.
The quintet also performed their newest tracks Be My Love and Stay, which demonstrated the capabilities of the members to do songs of diverse genres. Be My Love gifted the fans with a bright tune partnered with cute choreography. Stay, on the one hand, showcased the members vocal prowess in a smooth and heartfelt ballad tune.
Aside from AxisB’s own songs, the members brushed off the cold with covers of songs from fellow K-pop artists such as Blood, Sweat, and Tears of BTS and BIG BANG‘s FXXK IT.
The extended Valentine’s celebration was made extra special as the boys tried their hand in using the Filipino language to communicate with fans. Member Junghoon expressed his happiness to perform in front of the Filipino crowd, calling them “pretty”.
They also shared their experiences with Filipino food and some trivia about themselves such as their hobbies. The quintet had collaborative stages with local Filipino artists MM and MJ Magno. The Korean boy group danced along to MM and MJ’s songs Push and Daleng-Dale.
A meet-and-greet session was also prepared to give fans the opportunity to interact closer to the quintet. The boys signed albums and posters, shook fans’ hands, and had conversation with them.
AxisB closed the show with heartwarming words of thanks to the fans, and of wishful words to create more memories together.
