A close-up encounter with Baek Z Young in the Philippines

By  | 

Hundreds of Philippine fans enjoyed a soulful and sentimental evening with South Korea’s Queen of Ballads, Baek Z Young (Baek Ji-young) on April 15 at the Resorts World Manila, Pasay City.

The opening acts were Filipino boy group Chicser and The Voice Philippines Season 1 grand winner Mitoy. The second runner-up of the  I’m That Woman: Baek Z Young singing contest, Hadiya Ladip was also there to hype up the night.

The night beat the heat with allure as Baek Ji-young sang 15 of her greatest hits. Fans couldn’t help but feel emotional as she sang Korean drama OST songs like That Woman (Secret Garden), Because of You (Hyde, Jekyll, Me) and Spring Rain (Gu Family Book).


Baek Ji-young also proved that she is more than an excellent ballad singer, as she also performed her dance hit songs, such as Good Boy and the classic hit Dash. Her manager also made a surprising appearance on stage as they grooved together to My Ear’s Candy.


Her timeless hits like Still in Love and Like Being Hit by a Bullet also heated up the night. As expected, fans were left in awe as Baek Ji-young surprisingly sang Don’t Forget Me, since it was not included in the set list.


Hellokpop held a last minute concert ticket giveaway for Baek Z Young Close UP 2015. Three lucky winners had been chosen and had an opportunity to witness the awesome performance of the diva.
