KOREA’S FLOWER BOYS, KYU JONG & YOUNG SAENG IN MANILA THIS VALENTINE SEASON FOR THEIR ASIAN FANMEET TOUR
What happens when you combine two celebrated members of a successful franchise and give it a go?
Chances are it will be a big hit no doubt!
As a colossal treat this 2011, South Korea’s poster boys Kyu Jong and Young Saeng will embark on an Asian tour for a meet-and-greet/showcase simply as their way of thanking their millions of fans for the unwavering support they accorded the group through the years.
Kyu Jong and Young Saeng have indeed come a long way since SS501 first gained prominence in the Asian market years ago. Both are key members of mentioned group. Presently, all members are scattered in 4 different agencies; however, each made sure that their contracts would allow them to regroup as SS501 whenever their schedule permits it.
Differentiating the two, Young Saeng’s voice is the otherwise vocal backbone of SS501 known for its strength and clarity while Kyu Jong on the other hand though an integral part of the group plays middle vocals, the heart of the group. Notably, the popularity of SS501 (double S 501) skyrocketed after their leader Kim Hyun Joong gained superstar status when he played a major role in the global blockbuster drama Boys Over Flowers as ‘Ji-Hoo’.
Both superstars will be lending their stellar presence as they embark on stops in five Asian countries namely Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan and Manila. The first salvo kicked-off December 4, 2010 in Seoul where tickets were sold out as fast as it was released. It was followed by Thailand and Hong Kong then next would be Japan. Despite the high demands from other countries, the tour will end in the Philippines on February 5, 2011.
The events mentioned were also the first fan meet experience of Kyu Jong and Young Saeng after signing up with B2M Entertainment (an artist agency owned by fellow artist-singer Lee Hyori). Furthermore, the event will be a breaker before both superstars concentrate on their respective careers. Young Saeng will be releasing an album first half of 2011 while Kyu Jong will concentrate on portraying roles in Koreanovelas.
Fans will surely be thrilled as Kyu Jong and Young Saeng entertain the crowd with songs and answer questions from throng of followers as well. Both superstars will also release private video clips taken from their holiday trips, breaks, and about their daily lives. This is surely an experience that fans will never forget for a very long time.
Here’s a list of activities to be participated in by the fans themselves:
The meet-and-greet/showcase which will be held at the PICC’s The Forum at 6:30 pm Saturday. Tickets are priced at P6,950 (VIP); P4,950 (GREEN); P3,450 (GOLD) and P2,000 (SILVER) respectively.
