The boys arrived in Manila on December 18, 2018 with the warm welcome of NOIR Philippines. The boys greeted them with their wide and charming smiles. The amusement and excitement can be seen in their eyes.
The following days, December 19 and 20 were dedicated for their one-on-one interviews and of course, we at kpopchannel.tv also got the chance to have a sit down with the boys in which you should anticipate.
And then the day that every NOIR fans has been looking forward to, their first fan-meet in Manila on December 21st. The fans were already either on their way or at The Manila Hotel early in the morning. Registration started at 10AM and a lot of fans are already in queue for the fan-sign and hi-hug. Before the event began, the fans roam around the hotel and mingled with their fellow fans. They also gave freebies and fan supports.
The fan-sign started at 1PM inside the Fiesta Pavilion of The Manila Hotel. The members in order are Siha, Siheon, Seunghoon, Minhyuk, Yunsung, Yeonkuk, Junyong, Hoyeon and Daewon. Aside from signing the official paper, the fans could also hold hands and give gifts to the boys. Excitement and joy filled the room during the fan signing event. After the signing, NOIR performed their comeback track “Airplane Mode”, which delighted their fans more!
Next was the hi-hug in which the fans got the chance to not only hold hands and meet the boys up close, but they also had the chance to hug each one of them. After the hi-hug, they performed once again with their debut track “GANGSTA”. NOIR’s energy can be felt when they were performing and the fans screams just adds up to it. Before they performed “GANGSTA”, NOIR Philippines surprised the boys with a special video; flowers and a cake for Siheon’s upcoming birthday on the 23rd. The boys were surely surprised because they were on the formation to perform their song when NOIR Philippines suddenly went up the stage. The event ended with each one of them thanking the fans.
NOIR fans are really lucky, not only was their fan-meet in Manila free but also the gifts they gave made it to Korea. You can see that the boys really cherish their gifts because they kept and used it.
NOIR was also scheduled to performed on the same venue that night for The Philippines Association of Gangwon Province Founding And Sponsoring Night,“Korea & Philippines Friendship Night”. They performed “Airplane Mode”, “GANGSTA”, “Gift”, “Boy in Luv”, and “All I Want For Christmas Is You”.
