#KPOPCOALESCE2: Starting the new year with a blast!

Just as expected, Link-Up Productions has given us another amazing start of the year with KPop Coalesce 2, the annual KPop cover group concert in the Philippines, held on January 10, 2016 at St. Mary’s College Auditorium.

True to their commitment, KPop Coalesce 2 provided a wonderful and exciting ground for KPop fans, cover groups, and KPop fashion enthusiasts to gather, enjoy, and show more love for the Korean pop culture. Well-known personalities such as Phoi Chan and Richard Juan hosted the event while Dasuri Choi and popular local KPop cover groups hyped up the stage during the concert proper.
