MANILA, Philippines – Are you a fan of K-drama, Thai BL, or K-pop? Well, this is your chance to see your favorite stars in person!
After two years of live events being halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Philippines has now opened its doors to several foreign acts, with the country starting to host more in-person events like concerts and fan meetings.
