Annyeong haseyo, K-Pop fans! Rising group B.I.G is finally in Manila for Super Pop Con 2017 which is happening at the Mall of Asia Arena this Friday, July 7!
The five-member band first made waves with the hits "Hello" and "Aphrodite" which they might perform during the music festival which also includes B1A4, B.A.P, BTOB, VIXX, Pentagon, and Kriesha Chu.
The boys are happy to set foot in the country and meet their Pinoy supporters who have been there since the group's 2014 debut. "We have been waiting for this for a long time. We've been waiting to meet our Filipino fans in person. We wanted to perform for them," said Benji during their visit to the #1 music channel in the Philippines.
B.I.G returned with the album Hello Hello last May. According to Benji, they've received new songs to work on but can't promise to release anything for now. "In terms of definitive schedule for that music, it's not really decided," he said. "But you might have songs that pop up that may not be B.I.G official releases but songs that the members have made," referring to their occassional YouTube cover uploads.

But here's even bigger news for all, B.I.G plans to come back this September for their solo concert The B.I.Ginning! "Philippines is the first Asian country other than Korea to start our Asian tour," Gunmin explained. "Filipino fans gave us so much support through SNS and fan cafes. We are very thankful to them. We hope that we get successful for them."
