Despite this online petition on Facebook HERE, seems like there will be NO SM Town Live In Manila yet for 2011. According to K-Pop concert producer extraordinaire, Happee Sy, she has already inquired several times about the possibility of holding this. She explained briefly on her Facebook Page:
“Re: SM Town I have already asked regarding this, so many many times, but so far there’s no plan for that to push thru here in Manila.”
Requests for a local staging of SM Town have long been underway but seems like it will stay a dream for K-Pop fans for the mean time. Personally, I think it is crucial for fans to continue supporting SM Entertainment artists locally for this to really push through. In the same way that Super Junior has such a strong Philippine ELF fan base hence the Super Show staging in the country.
Thanks to SM Town Live In Manila for the photo.
