Shawols celebrate SHINee’s 10 years with concert screening, convention

Filipino Shawols braved the rain for two separate events that commemorate SHINee‘s colorful decade in the industry with a block screening of SHINee World Concert V and a convention last June 9.

PH Shawols’ block screening of SHINee World Concert V drowned Cinema 12 of SM Megamall with ear-pounding fanchants and pearl aqua ocean.

As if watching the concert live, Shawols sang along and screamed to the performances of Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, and Taemin and waved their lightsticks enthusiastically throughout the run of the three-hour show. For those who was not able bring their gear, PH Shawols provided everyone with penlights and balloons to complete the experience.

Raffle prizes, including a sealed SHINee World Concert V DVD, albums, and fanmade products from the organizers and sponsors, were given away to lucky winners after the show. Loot bags of various merchandise were also handed out to the attendees.

The block screening began as a plan involving 20 participants and ended up uniting a total of 300 Shawols.

eanwhile, A Shinin’ Decade Convention, organized by SHINee World Philippines (SWPH) in Jackman Plaza, Caloocan, was filled with laughter and tears with its line-up of activities.

A mental health awareness talk was held during the event in light of Jonghyun’s passing last December followed by a tribute for the group’s beloved main vocalist.

Cover group Selene and cosplayers Doris Edralin, Zack and Elijah Tolosa performed some of SHINee’s greatest hits (it was heart-warming to see a five-member group dancing to Good Evening) as well as solos of Jonghyun and Taemin.

SWPH also played a nostalgic video which documented the contemporary band’s journey from pre-debut up to the present, showcasing the group’s lengthy Korean and Japanese discographies and concert series.

SHINee-centric merchandise were available at the venue from participating shops and a photo booth was set up to complete the experience.

Cheers to SHINee’s 10th anniversary!
