The Love Rain Screening and Jang Geun Suk Fan Meeting Event| 2.19.2016
Aside from the melo-dramatic feel conveyed by the lantern set-up at KCC’s wave hall, “Eels” (Jang Geun Suk’s fandom name) enjoyed a romantic throwback on ‘Love Rain.’ Fans had a roller coaster feeling over the characters and their struggles for love.
Of course, I myself got a chance to spazz over my favorite couple! Well, I am a YoonSuk (Im Yoona and Jang Geun Suk) Shipper and I can’t help not to explode with feels! I did spazz while watching but that’s in front of the computer because I’m on the tech booth during the screening. Haha! I have watched this drama for many times already but who wouldn’t fall for this guy over and over?
After the screening, everyone enjoyed meals brought by Jang Geun Suk Philippines. The fun doesn’t just end there for the event is seriously a blast. Yes, it’s a post-valentine occasion so expect sweet and cheesy activities prepared by the fan base. Also, the gathering is loaded with freebies, games and raffles up for the attendees! It really is a win situation for all the eels! Here are a few of the photo booths and games we enjoyed:
The Yellow Umbrella Photobooth
If you have watched the drama love rain, the real deal started with the three second-rule. That’s how fast love could begin and yes, it all happened under the yellow umbrella. As a tribute to that romantic scene, a photo booth raining with hearts was made to reminisce that favorite moment!

Oops! The Instagram photo booth with Geun Suk is overloaded with fangirls! Eels! How does it feel like sharing a heart sign with your ‘valentine date?’ Oh, and please don’t forget to share your photos through #FRIYAYSatKCC and #KoreanCulturePH.

Of course, the best way to end the event is to have the photo session with all the attendees. The wave hall is seriously jam-packed with eels! Everyone did their poses and gave their winning smiles!
The iKON Debut Concert Screening | 2.26.2016
Expecting a huge crowd after the screening tickets got sold out in just a few hours, iKONics doomed KCC’s wave hall as they cheer and spazz over their favorite iKON members for its recent screening on iKON Showtime Concert. The last Friday of February still seemed to be a celebration for a post-valentine event after fans attended the screening, wearing their red iKON shirts and their swaging HipHop outfits.
Performances followed right after the screening ended. All eyes are glued on the cover groups as they charmed the audience with their powerful raps and dance! Meanwhile, the audience gave their loud fan chants to support the dancers and fill up the wave hall with much energy while tuning up the Rhythm Ta.’ It was followed by a short celebration for Jinhwan and Yunhyeong.
Afterwards, iKONics’ knowledge about their bias got tested as they have a great time answering trivia questions about iKON. It was a head to head collision between the fans because they need to raise their hands really fast to be able to get a chance to answer.
Winners for the games and raffle brought home official iKON merchandises! iKON Philippines, in return were able to cater the crowd as they prepared photocards and pins making all attendees happy as they went home after getting such freebies! As how events typically end, photo sessions with the cover group and their co-iKONics took place!
PS: Forgive me for the photos, the venue is quite crowded so I can’t really roam around to take photos. Thank you for coming to KCC!
