After B1A4, another K-pop group recognized Pinay beauty once again. M.Pire, who recently visited the Philippines for the 2014 KNATION Music Showcase, admitted, “There are a lot of beautiful girls in the Philippines!”
A mix of giggles and screams filled the SMX Convention Center last October 5, as the seven men in black instantly swept the ladies’ off their feet with their sweet confession.
M.Pire was the first idol group to perform on stage as they gave their renditions of songs from their album such as “If You Leave,” “I’m Better,” and “Can’t Be Friends With You.”
Main vocalist Lumin, formerly known as LeeU, introduced JYJ’s Jaejoong’s composition for the group titled “On My Mind.”
Afterwards, the boys serenaded the audience with an acoustic version of “She Ain’t Like That.”
A cute moment between Lumin and Yoo Seung took place when the latter saved the former during his rapping part. Yoo Seung mumbled through the lyrics, prompting Lumin to rap for him.
The members tried their best to converse with their fans in English, although there was a translator present who also relayed their messages to the crowd.
M.Pire then thanked their Filipino fans’ overwhelming support.
Jerry stated, “It’s an honor to be here in the Philippines, on this stage, and we hope you like our songs.”
T.O. added, “Thank you for the support and the wonderful cheers!”
Taehee continued, “We had wonderful memories. We’re spending a good time here in the Philippines, I hope you’re spending a good time as well, please look forward to our next activities in the future.”
Lumin then revealed the hard work they put in to show their good side to their Manila audience, “So for this Philippine performance, we prepared a lot, and I hope that you guys like it.”
The crowd quickly replied, “Yes!”
Haru hopes to see familiar faces when they visit again after the release of their new album. “Thank you for coming today! It’s our second time here. We will be out with a new album. We hope that you look forward to it.”
Red, the member who gained the most cheers, could only say, “I’m glad that you guys accepted me, and thank you very much, I love you all!”
Jerry, T.O., Yoo Seung, Lumin, Tae Hee, Haru, and Red visited the Philippines last July for KFEST5. The boys promised to come back to the country for the third time.
“It’s our second time here in the Philippines and we’re very happy that there are lots of people who came. We promise that we will come back,” Yoo Seung concluded.
