Event: CNBLUE Can't Stop in Manila

We braved the heavy typhoon Mario from Pampanga to Manila yesterday just to attend last night's concert of CNBLUE which was held at SMART Araneta Coliseum! I know some would say that we're so crazy going all the way there knowing that the country was in such state but it would greatly affect us more if we didn't see them performing live here. Honestly, we were also hoping that the production would consider announcing the suspension of the event but I guess, they decided on what they think should really be done.


Since no announcements were made, we decided to leave early even though the event was in the evening to give way for the traffic, slow drive and such. Surprisingly, we arrived there more or less than 2 hours. Just the same travel time from Pampanga to Manila. We're thankful that we arrived safe and sound at the event's place.


I know my outfit was just so-so because of the heavy rain, I decided to wear shorts and just use Fitflops instead of dressing up in case there will be flood in areas we're going to pass. We were also equipped with the fangirl necessities like lightsticks, merch, tickets (of course!) and more!!!


We left around 11:00AM and arrived around 1PM in Manila so we had lunch at Pepper Lunch in Gateway. It's my first to try their dish. Yum! (that's my sister on the left. They always mistook us as twins!)



Let's start with the set of concert photos now, shall we? :) OMG! I'm on my fangirl mode and I still have a hangover which I think would last for another week or two. Right now, please cooperate with the loads of photos. Don't worry, I will link at the end of the post the other photos I have on the event.

A shot before the stage performance. Look at the towel, it really glows right? That's a good thing because CNBLUE can see me from afar. ^_^

Grabbed from my sister's phone
This is their first stage! Wow! Nice set! All of the sets were actually nice! ♥


The boys! Waaaahhhh!!! ♥ ♥ ♥


Jonghyun on guitars! He got nicer bod this time. It's all because of his sport. :)


Minhyuk on drums. So nice to see him again!  


Jonghyun again! So handsome, right? :) 


Main vocalist Yonghwa! The leader of the group! Love his voice forever! 











Jungshin with Yonghwa together. This is the part I nearly cried. Omo! I am so touched. This is a ballad song here.


While Junghin and Yonghwa were having their moment, Jonghyun and Minhyuk were together. Bromance? Hahaha.. Love these two! My first bias is Jonghyun and Minhyuk was second. 


Little surprise of the fans for Jungshin's birthday few days ago. A very cute cake for him!!! ♥


Everybody's singing for the birthday boy. ^.^ 


Selca with the  fans who watched the concert. 


Like any other events, there were freebies that were given away at the day of the event! Most were from different fans, even international ones. Thank you to those who gave these freebies to fans. Feel free to comment below if you're the one who gave these away. Gomawo! ♥


More photos can be seen on my personal FB account which I made public for you. We had more than 400+ photos excluding videos but we trimmed it down to 200++.



The night was incredibly awesome even though the venue wasn't packed with spectators. It really is indeed raining very very hard and there were a lot of places that were flooded not only in Metro Manila but other places as well. Boices did not take risk. The members who were very professional and kind understood the situation. Yonghwa even said that he will pray for us and very thankful for all those who graced the event. Minhyuk said in full Filipino, Salamat sa pagpunta kahit may bagyo! Oh it really touched their hearts! Ours as well! ♥

We are currently uploading videos and I will update this post once we had it all up and running. For now, enjoy some of the finish videos we have uploaded below. 


Until now, I am so hyped that I always look at the photos and watch at the videos again and again. I guess that's the disease Kpop concerts always bring here. Hahaha. I feel that this will last after a week or two or perhaps a month. When Super Junior was here, my fangirl life was on for a month. I guess it will slow down this time since this is my 2nd concert with these boys. :)

This post just can't contain my happiness at all! I got to see them again and met new KPOP friends. In a few months from now, I will need to experience the same feeling again so I better need to get my head straight.

See you  next year again Boices! ♥

  1. Hi ate therese ,it is me Angel ,Omg I really love your blog. Very much true!!
    Also i feel sad that there are cnblue boice that cannot come because of the bagyo...But i guess the reason might be because of the cnblue manager that the boys will be busy in korea.just hopefully the cnblue boice can refund their money. I was there in the cant stop concert ,the cnblue were really thankful for the filipino fans that came to see their concert,they also said they will come back! I just hope it would be earlier or this year if it may happen. Just well let us wait for their next concert and again It would be another awesome concert ahead. As my first time to see them play,They were really awesome and loving,Cnblue Saranghaeyo! :)

    1. Hi Angel. I don't think that the money can be refunded since the event pushed through. The boys left after the concert itself. Walang pahi-pahinga. I guess they're very busy in Korea especially that there's Asian games held in Incheon. Perhaps they have a perf there. Let's again wait for them to come back! Nice to meet you there. One big heart of a BOICE ♥

  2. I saw many vacant seats. What's the estimated number of attendees (mean half or 3/4 of Araneta was occupied)? Yonhwa looks old and messy on those pics (ahjussi-ish look). Thanks for your blog, it makes us know what happened during that epic night. Hope to see more videos esp. the ones when they were speaking Tagalog. :)

    1. I got my solo shot with the background stage before the concert began. That's 2 hours before the concert so that side was filled up by 8pm. However, there sure were vacant areas even when the event already started. I myself was quite disappointed with the number of attendees but knowing the reason why there were a lot who weren't there, we understand their situation. We were just so lucky to see them once again. ♥

      Yonghwa's hair was pretty long because of his drama which airs in Korea now.

  5. Aww.. that's so cool you managed to watch the concert too!! I agree the boys are the best. I caught their concert when they were performing here in Singapore. My favourite is Yong Hwa. Are you watching his latest series - the 3 musketeers too ?

      Yep. My bias is Jonghyun then Minhyuk. You and my sis have the same bias. How's their concert in Singapore? :)

  6. K-pop is very famous and my pamangkin adores them too! I saw a documentary on these singers and though they don't have the vocal prowess, they practice really hard and captivate the audience.

    1. They do have nice vocals. There are a lot of Korean singers who are really great singers. You can check out DBSK, CNBLUE, IU, KRY of Super Junior, Ailee, and a lot lot more. I think you are referring to 'some' only.
