The K-POP World Music Festival 2019 which happened last June 9th was truly a night to remember. Kim Donghan, Elris, NCT 127 and Red Velvet brought SM MOA Arena to its knees, as they wowed the Filipino K-pop fans with their spectacular performances.
Each stage felt like it was a solo concert. The fans cheered on all of the idols, making them feel so loved and welcomed. The love and passion of the Filipino fans were clearly felt by the idols who performed.
Sohee of Elris, opened the show with an alluring and sexy performances. She definitely slayed the whole arena with “Mannequin”, “Spotlight”, “Hurry Up” and “Bloom”.
Following was Kim Donghan, a former JBJ member and now a solo artist. It was Donghan’s second time performing on a Philippine stage—the first was when he was here along with the members of JBJ for a fan meeting, but this is his first time performing in the country as a solo artist.
Donghan successfully snatched hearts that night with his enthralling performance with his songs “Sunset”, “Focus”, “Idea” and “Ain’t No Time”. Donghan also showed his playful side while he was being interviewed by the host, Ryan Bang, which was totally endearing.
Sohee with her group, Elris, came up next. They performed “Summer Dream”, “We, First”, “Heart Bank”, “Will Be Mine” and “Pow Pow”. They were extremely adorable!
It was really surprising to witness Sohee turn from being sexy to cute in one night. Only four members were able to perform, as the fifth member, Bella, was very unfortunately injured but despite that she still came to the Philippines to support her members and meet the fans.
Finally, NCT 127 comes up on stage with an explosive performance of their songs “Fire Truck”, “Cherry Bomb”, “Simon Says”, “Regular”, and “Super Human”. The arena was filled with ear-shattering screams, as the fans waved their neon green light-sticks to cheer on the boys.

NCT 127 performed as if they were the final act. It was truly staggering at how great they are in performing because they surely set the stage on fire that night. No joke.
The last but definitely not the least, the ladies who everyone were waiting for, Red Velvet!
If the screams were already loud enough for the idols who just finished performing, we can’t describe how loud the cheers were for Red Velvet.
