TREASURE, GOT7’s BamBam and Jackson Wang set the stage on fire at the ‘2022 K-Pop Masterz in Manila’

On July 29, an event for which TREASURE and GOT7 fans had been waiting finally came to fruition. With a 15,000 seating capacity, hundreds of thousands of fans flock to the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena to see all of the artists perform live. Organized by PULP Live World,’2022 K-Pop Masterz in Manila’ featured a star-studded lineup, from the hottest and promising fourth-generation boy group, TREASURE, to members of the world-class boy band GOT7, BamBam, and Jackson Wang — the audience was ecstatic to finally see their favorites perform on stage in front of them.

This was a special event for TREASURE as ‘K-Pop Masterz in Manila’ is their very first overseas concert, but only ten members of the group, Hyunsuk, Jihoon, Yoshi, Junkyu, Jaehyuk, Asahi, Doyoung, Haruto, Jeongwoo, and Junghwan, headed to Manila to perform, as Mashiho and Yedam are currently in hiatus from group activities until the end of the year.

Clad in eye-pleasing classy jeans outfits, TREASURE first took the stage with “JIKJIN,” the title track from their latest mini-album ‘THE SECOND STEP : CHAPTER ONE,’ where they rocked the stage and went straight into the hearts of the audience. The boys then performed “I LOVE YOU,” which, combined with their limitless energy and dominant dance moves, had the audience pumped up to the max.

Following their two incredible performances, TREASURE introduced themselves one by one, with fans screaming their hearts out as each member said their name. Last week (July 23), Jaehyuk celebrated his 21st birthday (international age). Though it was too late to greet him, fans still sang “Happy Birthday” to him to make the day even more special. An arena full of their fans wishing him a happy birthday was a mesmerizing moment for everyone, especially Jaehyuk, who said, “I’m very, very happy that I was greeted by Teume (TREASURE’s fandom name). Thank you so much, everyone. Mahal kita (I love you)!”
