Lapillus To Stage Concert With K-Pop Acts Kep1er and Mamamoo+

Who’s excited to see Lapillus again?

K-pop acts Lapillus, Kep1er, and Mamamoo+ will be performing in a joint concert in Manila, local events organizer OctoArts Entertainment announced Tuesday, May 9, 2023.

The three acts will perform at the Mall of Asia Arena on August 11 for “The Superstage by K-pop in Manila”.

Aside from the date and venue of the concert, OctoArts has yet to reveal ticketing details.

The event will mark Lapillus’ return to the country after their fan meets in November 2022.

Formed by MLD Entertainment, Lapillus debuted in June 2022 and has been marketed as a “global” girl group for having members of different nationalities, including Chanty, a Filipino-Argentinian who formerly worked as an actress under ABS-CBN and now managed by GMA-7’s Sparkle.

Aside from Chanty, the group also includes Japanese leader Shana, Chinese-American Yue, and Koreans Seowon, Bessie, and Haeun.

The group made its first comeback in September 2022 after dropping the extended play (EP) “Girl’s Round Part.1.”

The six-piece act also dropped the music video for the 5-track EP’s lead single “Gratata.”

In an earlier interview with ABS-CBN News, member Yue described “Gratata” as a song that shows “a complete, different Lapillus with strong performances and really great vocals.”

Prior to that, the group visited the country to promote their debut single “Hit Ya!” and to meet their Pinoy fans known as Lapis.

More than just Lapillus

The joint concert will also mark Mamamoo’s Solar and Moonbyul’s return to the country months after their first-ever Manila concert.

Mamamoo+, the group’s first sub-unit, debuted on August 30, 2022, with the digital single “Better.” They made their comeback in March 2023 with the single “GGBB.”

Meanwhile, the joint concert will be Kep1er’s first performance in the Philippines.

Composed of members Yujin, Mashiro, Xiaoting, Chaehyun, Dayeon, Hikaru, Huening Bahiyyih, Youngeun, and Yeseo, Kep1er debuted in January 2022.

The group was formed through the Mnet survival show “Girls Planet 999.”
