Most Filipino K-POP fans knew about iKON coming to Manila for Samsung’s S10 Launching Party. The event only invited selected influentials and media partners along with Samsung executives, business partners and dealers. Samsung opened 50 slots for Samsung users to let iKONICs attend the exclusive event. They also did a raffle draw to non-Samsung users, allowing 10 additional winners to attend the launch party.
On February 26, iKON arrived in the country for the launching party set to happen during the night at Cove Manila. Annyeong Oppa was one of the few media partners invited to the said event.
The event was hosted by the international TV/events host, Joey Mead King. During the launch, Samsung President Mr. James Jung was pleased to announce the new features that come with the new unit: a wide variety of screen size display, a more improved camera feature, and memory sizes up to 1.5 terabytes to name a few.
They also revealed that they are now accepting pre-orders of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 that comes with freebies for a limited offer.
iKON began their performance with their top hit, ‘Love Scenario’ that made the iKONICs (inside and outside of the venue) happy. The popular Korean boy group is Samsung’s brand ambassador for the said campaign.
They expressed their gratefulness to the brand and to everyone present at the event. They also unveiled the new skin inspired by their member — Chanwoo to the game called Fortnite.
The interview went on and they were asked how was their day, and Jinhwan claimed to know few of Bisaya words:
iKON expressed how they are grateful for visiting the Philippines the second time since their first concert back in November 2018. Jinhwan also told the crowd that they like the Filipino dish, Sinigang.
The group also revealed that they will go back to the country for their second concert soon! Right after the interview, iKON continued their performance by performing ‘Killing Me’ and ended their set with ‘Bling Bling.’
The formal event ended after iKON’s performance and an after-party for the guests present started.
