When you wish to the universe, it answer back to you when you least expected. I joined a radio contest for the Best of the Best in the Philippines concert yet at the back of my mind; the chances of winning is thin because I’m not lucky with a raffle.

It was announced that they were giving away lower box and VIP tickets. I was not included with the lower box ticket winners but hope began to creep in my heart when the DJ announced that the winner of the VIP tickets joined during his show. I had my ears on the radio when my name was called. I got the VIP tickets! I immediately invited a dear friend of mine who is a huge fan of K-pop especially Super Junior.

The area was already jam-packed with the immense fans of Super Junior and Girl’s Generation who had their light sticks and head bands.

It was my first time to be in the VIP area and by just seeing the seating arrangement from afar, it was like a dream come true to me.

The crowd was screaming already even though the wide screen just shown photos of the performers. That only showed how excited and supportive the Filipino audience to see the concert of their favorite K-POP artists.

The first act who took the center stage was the four girl group: Red Velvet.
