Over the past few days, the streets of Manila have been soaked from the consistent rainfalls. As witty as Filipinos have always been, several memes were instantly linked to the popular song, “Raining in Manila,” by Filipino indie band, Lola Amour. In fact, a Twitter thread of memes was even started.
Here are some of the tweets.
Imagine receiving a government-generated text vibing to the song.
But alright, there surely is something with the cold weather that just brings in the feels.
On the other hand, some humorously blame the song for not being able to do their chores.
And then, of course, the flood.
But among all the reactions we have been seeing all over the internet, our favorite has got to be from ENHYPEN member, Jake. ENHYPEN is among the famous South Korean groups today. They are known for their songs, “Drunk-Dazed,” and “FEVER.” Jake is one of the seven members of the group which also includes, Heeseung, Jay, Sunghoon, Sunoo, Jungwon, and Ni-Ki.
During Jake’s WeVerse live last July 14, he saw comments from fans, whom they call ENGENEs, mentioning the song. He shares that he thought the fans were only saying that it was raining in Manila. While he may not have understood what the song was about since it is in Filipino, he says he liked how it sounds.
“Oh, I like this. It’s vibing.”
— Jake, ENHYPEN
