A team’s representative K-Pop boy group VAV spent a special night with their passionate Filipino fans for the 2019 Meet and Live Tour last September 7!
The group, which debuted in October 2015, impressed Filipino VAMPZ who gathered at SM City North EDSA Skydome with precise moves and smooth vocals for their hits, such “Give Me More,” “Señorita,” “Thrilla Killa,” “Gorgeous,” “ABC (Middle of the Night),” “Venus,” “Spotlight,” “She’s Mine,” and more. They also performed Western bops like Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito,” much to the enjoyment of the crowd.
The fan meeting included segments in between dance numbers, which member Lou gladly MC-ed with his flawless English skills!
During the Q&A session, Jacob was asked what food would he be and why. His response? “Spicy chicken because I’m a hot guy!” As if to drive the point home, he said the most memorable words he heard from a fan was “You are the most handsome guy in the universe!”
Meanwhile, Ace said the first thing he did upon landing in Manila was to “eat sisig!” Watermelon boy Baron said he would be summer if he were a season, and Ayno granted the request for a sexy dance!
VAV also picked some members of the audience to join them on stage for some awesome fanservice! An adorable little VAMPZ was able to take a short video with all of the members, and two girls snapped some selfies with VAV too. Perhaps competing as the Luckiest Fan of the Night™ was a male fan who got serenaded by Lou and a girl who had a 30-second eye contact with Ziu!
Jacob mentioned how special the night was for him since it was also his birthday, and PH VAMPZ promptly sang the birthday song for him. The local fanbase also prepared cakes and a video greeting for him and Ace, who also just celebrated his birthday on August 28.
Lou, who lived in Cebu for four years, said he never imagined he would be able to return to the country to perform as a member of VAV. “I promise you, we will come back to the Philippines!” he added, to which PH VAMPZ playfully teased him by saying, “Iiyak na ‘yan!” (“He’s about to cry!”)
“I will not forget this moment!” Baron said.
“It would be nice to see you again!” leader St. Van added.
When the night ended, VAV uploaded a video with PH VAMPZ on their official Twitter page. “#Philippines VAMPZ, ang galing nyo (sic)! Thank you for your support and love. Salamat po.”
