After years of waiting, Filipino ONCEs finally got to celebrate with their Candy Bong Zs as TWICE brought their electrifying, vibrant performances to the PH concert stage for the first time. With three hours of heart shaking productions, the South Korean 9-member girl group made sure their Manila debut was unforgettable!

Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu brought the whole arena to their feet with powerful performances of their top hits like “Stuck in My Head”, “Cheer Up”, “YES or YES”, “Dance the Night Away”, “Heart Shaker”, “Likey”, “What is Love?”, “Like Ohh-Ahh”, “TT”, “Fancy”, and more.


The girls also broke off into sub-units for special performances. Sana, Dahyun, and Tzuyu flaunted their dancing prowess with their rendition of Beyoncé’s “Dance For You”; Momo and Jihyo put their own poignant spin on Taemin’s “Goodbye”; while Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Mina, and Chaeyoung brought the house down with Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”.

All throughout the concert, each member expressed their gratitude for PH ONCEs’ enthusiasm and promised to return to the Philippines soon. “Of all the ONCEs we saw dancing to our songs, I think you guys had the greatest energy,” Jihyo shared.


To make the special event even more memorable, Globe went all out in giving their customers the ultimate K-Pop experience both online and onground. In collaboration with Happee Hour, Globe launched the K-mmunity PH group on Facebook, for everyone who shares their love for K-pop, K-drama, and K-culture. By joining the group, members get updates on promos, contests, first-dibs on concert tickets, and even collectible concert pins!

Come concert day, Globe set up the K-mmunity PH Studio and Store inside MOA Arena. At the K-mmunity PH Store on the first floor, customers said YES or YES to exclusive TWICE merch by simply registering to their favorite Globe Prepaid or Globe At Home promo. On the second floor, ONCEs got to bust a move, strike a pose with the TWICE girls, customize their merch, and complete the fan chants at the K-mmunity PH Studio.

Globe also kicked off its year-long Ultimate Stan Search contest, wherein TWICE fans posted videos of themselves doing the “What is Love?” fan chant. One lucky group and 8 individuals won VIP tickets to the concert, a meet & greet and photo op with TWICE, premium merchandise, and an exclusive tour to the K-mmunity PH Studio before gates opened!

TWICE’s first concert in Manila was definitely one for the books and ONCEs can only hope the nine girls can come back sooner with brand new hit songs!
