ITZY wowed fans with their talent and charm during first Manila show

Since their debut in February 2019, South Korean girl group ITZY had their first show in Manila last December 8 at the New Frontier Theater. Composed of Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Yuna, and Chaeryeong, the group gained awards and nominations from various music shows including Asia Artist Awards, Melon Music Awards 2019, and Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA).

As the show started, ITZY expressed their gratitude for the warm welcome of the crowd–who cheered them on every performance. Some of the songs they performed were  “Icy”, “It’z Summer”, “Cherry” and “Dalla Dalla”. They also sang covers of TWICE’s “TT” and GOT7’s “Hard Carry.”

The quintet then greeted PH Midzys with Filipino words: “Kamusta kayo?” (How are you?) and “Mahal kita” (We love you). Moreover, fans got to know more about the girls during the “Question? ITZY” segment wherein they revealed their possible careers if they weren’t Kpop idols.

Chaeryeong answered that she’d be an actress while Yuna shared she would like to be an announcer if she weren’t a singer. Yeji then admitted that she’d really want to be a dancer or do music-related jobs if she weren’t a part of ITZY. Finally, Ryujin said she’d probably be a student in a university if she weren’t in the music industry.

The group also played the “1 Second Intro Quiz,” wherein they’d have to guess–through dance or sing–the title of popular K-pop tracks. This included “Boy With Luv” by BTS, “Feel Special” by TWICE, BLACKPINK’s “Kill This Love” and many more. At the end of the show, PH Midzys prepared a touching video presentation to show their continued love and support for ITZY.
