Kpop boyband SS501 may visit Manila in July

Another Kpop idol group may visit the Phillipines soon.

Fangirlasia (online purchase shop, mainly targeting towards Kpop/Jpop music CD, DVD, mag)
is currently negotiating to bring Kpop boyband SS501 to the Phlippines for a
fanmeeting in July.

TripleS Philippines, the local fanclub of SS501, has started accepting reservations
from members for VIP seats that would cost P5,000 each.

Fangirlasia has also opened an event page on Facebook to know how many fans
will be attending the event.
"We would like to remind everyone that this event is just a survey.
We are still under negotiation. Date, time, and venue are tentative," it said.

Since boyband SHINee visited the country in November last year,
other Kpop groups followed suit.

This year, bands that have already held shows in the country are 4minute, FTIsland,
Ukiss, Super Junior.

Fangirlasia and Spin Manila brought boyband FTIsland to the Philippines last March
for the Manila 2010 Showcase held at the Philippine International Convention Center.

SS501 is a five-member boyband managed by DSP Entertainment
that was launched in 2005. It is composed of leader Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Kyu Jong,
Heo Young Saeng, Park Jung Min, and Kim Hyung Joon.

Last year, SS501 held their first Asia Tour persona that kicked off in Seoul and visited Tokyo,
Taipei, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Bangkok.

Kim Hyun Joong, in particular, starred int he last year's hit Korean drama series "Boys over Flowers",
which also became a top-rated programme in the Philippines.

Last year, SS501 received the Bonsang and Hallyu awards in the Seoul Music Awards.
The group also won the Best OST (official soundtrack) Award
in the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) for "Because I'm Stupid",
which was used in "Boys over Flowers".
It also won the Top Buzz International Group in the Yahoo Buzz Award.

SS501 will be coming back to the Kpop music scene with a new album in May.
