And in just a few days, B.I.G will finally be here in Manila!
For those of you who don’t know them yet, Boys In Groove (B.I.G) is a five member group from GH Entertainment. The boys debuted with their single Hello and have seen a moderate amount of success getting New Artist awards and being named Ambassadors for Korean Life and Korean Youth. As part of the B.I.G Asia Tour, they’ll be stopping by the Music Museum in San Juan and us Biginnings will have a chance to meet them up-close and personal!

B.I.G in Manila!
Our friends from All Access Productions invited us to a presscon where we got up-and-close with the Boys. We got to ask them some questions about the Philippines and their feelings about this Saturday!
Benjie took the lead with his excellent command of English and told us how excited they are to be back here in the country. B.I.G was here with the Super Pop Con earlier this July. He also told us how much fun he and the rest of B.I.G had when they were on Showtime! Vice Ganda left such an impression on Benjie and made him think a lot about what he wants to do.
When asked how they felt about their fans, the Boys mentioned that fans from all the countries are all different. They’re looking at how much the fans will be different from country to country. They also were asked to give one word to described us fans from the Philippines; Minpyo says fans are his energy while Heedo compared us to energy drinks. Benjie called us dynamite and says that they are the fuse that will bring a big explosion. J-hoon called us his friends and that we never fail to greet him with a smile. Gunmin decided to make up his own word: yorongi. Much like the word, fans are special to him.
To wrap up the small event, the boys were asked to give us messages for this Saturday’s concert. They want us to eat healthy and train for the passionate performances we’ll get this passionate concert. B.I.G is going to relieve our stress and make us dream about them for a month.
We ended with a lot of laughs and promises of excitement from the boys. Now we can’t wait for Saturday!
