As seemingly infinite flow of Korean acts continue to fill big venues in the Philippines, OVERPASS: K-Pop Music Concerts offers a night of stellar performances with today’s best of K-Pop – EXO’s Baekhyun, Jeon Somi, and B.I!
Happening on June 11 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, OVERPASS brings together EXO-Ls, Sommungchis, and I.Ds for the ultimate fan gathering celebrating the excellence of K-Pop music in R&B, Pop, Soul, and Hip-Hop genres.
Here are few things you wouldn’t want to miss at OVERPASS:
1. Baekhyun’s much-awaited return
After being officially discharged from his two-year military service last February, Phixos surely missed seeing the one-and-only Byun Baekhyun! Picking up from the release of his album “Bambi” in March 2021, the main vocalist of EXO is now unstoppable as he has been appearing in festivals around the globe immediately since his return.
Just imagine singing along to “Betcha” and “Candy” as Filo EXO-Ls finally reunite with their beloved Kyoong!
A multi-talented artist, Baekhyun is one of the busiest artists in K-Pop. Apart from EXO and its sub-units, he has also ventured in other acts such as joining the supergroup SuperM, debuting as an actor in “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” and finding massive success as a soloist. In fact, Baekhyun is the first artist since 2001 to achieve a million sales for his EP “Delight” and he then went on to receive his second million-seller with “Bambi.” Baekhyun also achieved the most “Best Male Artist” trophies after winning 3 years in a row at Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) history, a prestigious music awards show in South Korea.
2. Jeon Somi’s first visit to the Philippines
Best known for her viral tracks “DUMB DUMB” and “Birthday,” hitmaker Jeon Somi will finally come to the Philippines! OVERPASS marks the soloist’s very first visit to the country and Filo Sommungchis are in for a treat as their yearning to hear Somi live will finally come true.
Recently, her hit songs “What You Waiting For,” “XOXO,” and “DUMB DUMB” were featured in the new romcom series Netflix’s “XO, Kitty” which is currently one of the top streamed shows at the streaming giant.
3. B.I endless love and appreciation for PH I.Ds
Kim Hanbin (stage name: B.I) is indeed in love with his Filo I.Ds. In just a year, the rapper-producer has paid a visit to the Philippines twice – one for a fanmeeting last August 2022 and one for a solo concert last March 2023. OVERPASS will be the artist’s third solo visit in the Philippines.
The solo hip-hop act will be having his comeback this June 1 with the release of his second studio album “To Die For.” B.I has been performing the title track “Dare to Love” at various festivals prior to its official drop, and who knows, maybe the lucky audience of OVERPASS will be one of the first to hear the new tracks live!
