The Hammingtons set to fly in Manila for their first fanmeeting on July 17

This July is a good time for a family bonding activity as South Korea’s cutest trio is coming to Manila!


For the first time, Sam, William, and Bentley are coming to meet Filipino fans at The Hammingtons in Juanderland: Fanmeeting in Manila. The event is scheduled to take place on July 17, 2022, Sunday, 3 PM at the New Frontier Theater.

The South Korean stars rose to fame in 2016 when they joined the roster for “The Return of Superman,” a reality show featuring celebrity dads and their children. Initially, it was only Sam and William (now five years old) who appeared on the show. Bentley (now four years old) joined a year later after he was born.

The three quickly became fan favorites and eventually brought home the prestigious “Grand Prize” (locally known as “Daesang”) at the 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards along with the other cast.

Earlier this year, the family decided to step down from the show to pursue other opportunities. One of which is “Wilbengers: Suspicious Camping Commotion,” an animated superhero film starring William and Bentley, together with their dad. The family also recently launched their new variety show titled “The Hammingtons’ Dream Closet” which airs on the ENA channel.

Outside of mainstream media, the boys are busy with their very own Youtube channel, “THE WILLBEN SHOW,” which has now amassed more than 350,000 subscribers.

Despite their packed schedule, The Hammingtons are excited to come to Manila.

“This is an amazing opportunity and we are so looking forward to meeting our fans. The last few years have been really difficult due to restrictions but finally being able to have the chance to meet some of our international fans is so exciting,” shared Sam Hammington, the family patriarch.

Sam is a New Zealander-Australian comedian who gained stardom in the South Korean reality television show “Real Men.” In 2013, he won the “Best Male Newcomer” award for his amazing performance on the show.

With only a few weeks until the fanmeet, Sam shared how the Hammingtons have begun preparation.

“We are not trying to overly prepare as we want to have an authentic experience while we are there. However, we have been trying to learn some Tagalog but it is not as easy as we thought it would be.”

Sam also shared that they’re eager to try some of the delicious food recommended by the fans; most notably, “chocolate rice” or champorado in Tagalog.

When asked how the kids reacted to the news, the 44-year-old star candidly answered, “To be honest, I have told them but I don’t think they quite comprehend where we are going. They are excited to go on an airplane to another country. But when we get there I am sure they will be excited.”

As a parting message to fans, Sam had this to say: “First and foremost, thank you for supporting us in everything we do. We appreciate you all, and without you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. This is our opportunity to thank you in person and hope to meet as many of our fans as possible.”

The Hammingtons’ fanmeeting in Manila is just one of the many Asian stops lined up for the family. With WILD Group now managing their international activities, fans can look forward to seeing more of the trio in-person and on various media platforms across Southeast Asia.

Tickets will be available this Saturday via TicketNet online. Prices for the fanmeet range from PHP2, 850 (Balcony) to PHP6, 500 (MVP). The Hammingtons in Juanderland: Fanmeeting in Manila is presented by CDM Entertainment.

Singer-actress Jung Yerin set to hold her first-ever fansign on July 22, 2022

Singer and actress Jung Yerin is coming to Manila for the country's first-ever fansign-only event! Yerin "Aria" Fansign in Manila is scheduled to take place on July 22, 2022, Friday, at the New Frontier Theater.

The 25-year-old idol recently debuted as a solo artist with "Aria" as the lead single from her mini album with the same name. In the song's music video, Yerin is seen frolicking through flower backdrops, perhaps symbolizing her desire to grow her career as a solo act. 

Before forging her own path, Yerin was the lead dancer and vocalist of GFriend. The six-member group was behind the famous songs "Rough" and "Me Gustas Tu" released in 2016 and 2018 respectively. Though the group has disbanded, the members are all active in various fields with Yerin soon to make history for her fansign in Manila.

Though fansigns have been done in the Philippines before, it was usually added as a perk to bigger events such as concerts and fanmeetings. This time around, Yerin is meeting her Filipino fans exclusively for an album fansigning event.

Moreover, attendees get the chance to win a variety of amazing fan benefits like Selfie, Solo Photo Op, and Group Photo Op to name a few. In lieu of Hi-Touch, there will also be a "Goodbye Session" where all attendees go up the stage and wave goodbye to Yerin. This unique perk gives the fans a golden opportunity to see the South Korean beauty up close.

Entry to the event only requires purchasing one set of "Aria" (Day and Night album versions) via https://www.cdmentertainment.ph/. Album selling period has begun and will continue until July 1, 2022, at midnight. More information can be found on CDM Entertainment’s social media pages/

GOT7's Youngjae set to visit his fansign in Manila

Philippine Ahgases are in for a sweet time this July!


Singer and songwriter YOUNGJAE is coming to Manila for a fansign event—YOUNGJAE “Sugar” Fansign in Manila—happening on July 23, 2022, Saturday, at the New Frontier Theater.

The once-in-a-lifetime event allows fans to closely interact with the idol through a variety of fan benefits. By only purchasing two copies of “Sugar” at https://www.cdmentertainment.ph, fans already have access to the event and a special perk called “Goodbye Session.”

In this benefit, all attendees get the privilege to go up the stage and wave goodbye to YOUNGJAE. It was introduced in place of Hi-Touch, to avoid unnecessary contact while still giving the fans a chance to see the idol up close.

For Top Spenders (the fans who buy the most albums), the highlight is undoubtedly getting a selfie with YOUNGJAE using the fan’s phone. As a cherry on top, the idol would be the one to take the photo.

A total of 50 fansign slots are also up for grabs. In this process, each chosen fan gets to have one minute to talk with YOUNGJAE face-to-face. During that time, the fan can ask him questions and personally give him gifts while he signs the album.

 Plenty of other perks like Group Photo Op, signed albums, and signed polaroids are also waiting for lucky attendees who will win the raffle. Additionally, YOUNGJAE prepared other fun and exciting surprises that will delight the fans.

This event marks YOUNGJAE’s first time back in the Philippines since the pandemic began. The last time the GOT7 member visited the country was in 2019 when his group held a concert at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Since then, YOUNGJAE has been busy building a solid profile as a multi-talented performer. The South Korean star recently wrapped promotions for his web drama “Love & Wish” early this year. His musical career is also thriving with “Sugar” serving as his comeback one year after his solo debut.

It’s not too late to meet YOUNGJAE live! Album selling period is currently ongoing with several seats still available. Selling period ends July 1, 2022 at midnight.

Brit nominated Calum Scott announced Asia Tour; Manila on October 20

Following the release of “Heaven”, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Calum Scott today announces his biggest headline Asia tour to date, the “BRIDGES” Asia Tour, including his debut shows in Tokyo, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. He will come back to Manila on October 20, 2022 at New Frontier Theatre. Promoted by AEG Presents Asia and Ovation Productions, tickets will go on sale on Wednesday June 15 at 10am local via ticketnet.com.ph


Calum will kick off the Asia tour in Tokyo, Japan on October 18 before performing in Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore.



October 18 Tokyo, Japan Ex Theater Roppongi

October 20 Manila, Philippines New Frontier Theater

October 22 Bangkok, Thailand Moonstar Studio

October 25 Jakarta, Indonesia Bengkel Space SCBD

October 27 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Plenary Hall, KL Convention Centre

October 28 Singapore, Singapore Capitol Theatre

Says Calum, “It feels so incredible to announce my Asia tour! It’s been a long time coming and a lot of planning but after the last few years we’ve had, you can just tell how excited people are for live music again and I’m so happy to be a part of it. I am coming back with my band to play the songs that people discovered me on, as well as new songs from my second album which I would say is my best and most personal work yet - I can’t wait to see you there.”

Calum has announced that his highly awaited sophomore album Bridges will arrive on June 17. The fourth single released from Bridges, “Heaven” once again reveals Calum’s gift for finding unexpected ways to express universal emotions. “As songwriters, we’re always searching for new ways of saying ‘I miss you’ or ‘I love you’ or ‘I want you back,’” says Calum, who co-wrote “Heaven” with Hayley Warner(an Australian singer/songwriter who’s also penned songs for artists like Katy Perry and Tori Kelly). “‘The concept of ‘Heaven’ is the love between two people being so powerful that it is far superior to anything else, any other form of paradise that could be offered. I loved the idea of putting the power into the relationship.”

The follow-up to Calum’s 2018 full-length debut Only Human—a widely acclaimed effort that hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries across the globe, in addition to selling more than 3.6 million in adjusted album sales and garnering over 7.5 billion combined streams —Bridges will also feature the previously released singles “If You Ever Change Your Mind”(a bittersweet but empowered piece produced by Greg Kurstin, an eight-time GRAMMY Award® winner known for his work with Paul McCartney, Elton John, and Adele), “Rise”(a wildly soaring track whose video features a captivating performance from British actor Georgia Hirst), and “Biblical”(a heart-on-sleeve ballad Calum later followed with an American Sign Language version made in collaboration with the Tony Award®-winning Deaf West Theatre).
