After a long drought in K-pop concerts, us Filipino fans now face a flood. How’s the bank account holding up? If you haven’t completely depleted your concert funds yet, here are some of the K-pop shows you can still catch in 2022. But make sure you also leave some for next year’s shows (hello, Blackpink!) and shows from local artists (hello, SB19!).
Check our handy guide below.
(G)I-dle’s “Just Me ( )I-dle”
It's just you and them, PH NEVERLAND ✨ @G_I_DLE are about to grace us with their royal presence this coming September 11 (Sun) at @NewFrontierPh.
After a rough 2021 that included a 14-month hiatus, (G)I-dle made their strong comeback as a five-member group this year with their first studio album titled “I Never Die.” On their first world tour called “Just Me ( )I-dle,” the girls perform new and old faves like “Tomboy” and “Latata.”

Don’t forget to wear your dancing shoes because it’s bound to be one hell of a party with these three artists.

Fans have been joking that we’re getting GOT7 shows in tingi—not that we’re complaining about the solo work showcase.

Anti-romantic or not, we know we’d love to attend TXT’s first world tour. Apart from tracks from their recent “darker” albums, we’ll see the boys perform older favorites like “Crown” and “Blue Orangeade” on “Act: Love Sick.” No “Cat & Dog,” though, so MOAs won’t get to bark together in the venue.
