The fans of Kpop groups from different generations reunited at the Be You 3: The World Will Smile in Manila last July 23 at the Araneta Coliseum. Apink, BTOB’s Minhyuk, Infinite’s Nam Woo Hyun and CIX headlined one of the most epic concerts this month in Manila!

With mostly fans from the 2nd and 3rd generation of Kpop, even if you are not a hardcore Pink Panda, you probably came across some of Apink’s notable songs including those that are a part of their Manila setlist at Be You 3. Park Cho-rong, Yoon Bo-mi, Jeong Eun-ji, Kim Nam-joo and Oh Ha-young proved their strong popularity with numerous Pink Pandas gathered at the

Since their MTV Music Evolution stage in Manila last 2016, we had a long waiting game for their Manila comeback and finally, when D-Day came, we heard some of the best hits from Apink! What songs did you enjoyed jamming with them?

DND – Apink 10th Mini Album [SELF]

The latest among the songs in their set list, Apink entered the stage with the song DND from their 20th Mini Album “Self” released in April 2023. If you are a fan of Apink for years now, the lyrics “Live like you are twenty two. Rather than do what you should do, do what you want,” hits different to you now.

Dumhdurum – Apink 9th Mini Album [LOOK]

The most played Apink song on Spotify, Apink’s Dumhdurum 덤더럼 is released in April of 2020 as one of the tracks from their 9th mini album “Look”. Dumhdurum made an “All Kill” in 2020 when the track debuted in numerous music shows including The Show, Show Champion, M Countdown, Music Bank, Show! Music Core and Inkigayo and bagged all the trophies.

I’m so sick (1도 없어) – 7th Mini Album [ONE & SIX]

The song “I’m so sick” more popularly known for its Korean title “il-do eobseo” is one of their most catchy songs to date. The song is released in July 2018 and has garnered almost 89 million views on Youtube as of this writing.

Mr. Chu (미스터 츄) – [Pink Blossom]

Released in 2014, if you are already a Pink Panda during this era, you are probably working now and some even have your own family now. Being one of the trending songs in Kpop since then, it is truly nostalgic to hear them sing “Mr. Chu” live in 2023 and the same sweet voice I heard on their first Manila visit is still as powerful as it is now.

NoNoNo – Secret Garden

There were 2 songs that I really wish to hear them sing live once again. These songs are LUV and Remember which are my favorite songs of Apink but since this is a joint concert, there are other performers so the time is limited.

Be You 3: The World Will Smile is brought to us by Neuwave Events and Production.

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
