Yes, you are now technically breathing a much closer air proximity as Park Bo-gum.
Just yesterday, popular South Korean actor landed in Manila in preparation for his fanmeeting tomorrow, June 22nd, at the Mall of Asia Arena around 6pm (to be hosted by Anne Curtis). He was warmly greeted by a number of fans that awaited his arrival at terminal 1 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
The actor sported a simple yellow jumper paired with black pants, rubber shoes and a black baseball cap which had “Today is a good day” written on it. He also opted not to wear a black face mask, the staple outfit necessity of most South Korean stars, so fans were even more joyed to see the brightly smiling face of the beloved actor.
The fanmeeting is part of his “Good Day : May your everyday be a good day” 2019 Asia tour which kicked off last January 26th in Seoul. Originally, his Manila fanmeet was scheduled to be on April 27th but due to the earthquakes that rattled the country during that very month it was moved to this June for the safety of both the actor and his fans alike. All original date ticket holders were assured that their tickets were still valid for the re-secheduled event.
Tickets were priced at ₱5,500 for Lower Box B, ₱7,500 for Lower Box A, ₱8,500 for Patron and ₱9,500 for VIP.
All ticket holders were also eligible in winning a chance to be one of the 30 people to attend the actor’s press conference held before the fanmeet. At the same time, all ticket holders will be able to participate in the Hi-Touch event—a typical part of South Korean fanmeetings where the fans get a brief interaction with the celebrity mainly by being able to high-five them. Each attendee will also get an official tour poster with a lucky few getting the signed version of it.
Park Bo-gum first received widespread popularity for his supporting role in the 2014 Cannes-competing film “A Hard Day (끝까지 간다)” and furthered this with his critically acclaimed role as in the 2015 KBS2 television drama “Hello Monster (너를 기억해)”. He continued to rise as one of South Korea’s top Hallyu stars when he starred as one of the young leads in the third installment of the immensely popular “Reply” television series aptly called “Reply 1988”. His role here and the show’s tremendous success earned him the nickname “Nation’s Little Brother”.
But his greatest and most-known role to date was as the Joseon Crown Prince Lee Yeong in the 2016 KBS2 historical romance-drama “Love in the Moonlight (구르미 그린 달빛)”. The show managed to be both a domestic and international hit (extremely high viewership ratings for each episode were seen as it aired here in ABS-CBN) and truly catapulted the actor at the top as he not only won numerous accolades for his performance, became one of the most desired actors for endorsements but also became the first actor to top Forbes’ Korea Power Celebrity list a year later.
He was also one of the hosts of the South Korean music program “Music Bank” from 2015-16 alongside K-pop girl group Red Velvet’s Irene. After his departure from the show, due to his well-received hosting skills, he continued to host its world tours in both 2017 and 2018. Additionally, he was one of the chosen representatives to act as torch bearers during the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.
His Manila visit marks the last leg of his 2019 Asian fanmeet tour and his next project is playing the titular lead of “Seo Bok” in an upcoming sci-fi thriller film of the same name.
Will you be attending the event tomorrow? If so, don’t forget to take note of the guidelines and rules as seen below.
