[COVERED] GOT7 1st Fan Meeting in Manila Press Conference
November 14 (Saturday), 2015 – Taking Asia by storm, the boys of popular Korean boyband GOT7 made their 2nd appearance in the Philippines by holding their first ever fan meeting in Manila, Philippines. Before the highly anticipated fanmeeting, we had the honor of being invited to a press conference with the boys themselves and some lucky fans that was held at Gateway Cineplex. Though it was short, it was an enjoyable time for the fans and the boys as they answered questions and also interacted with the spectating fans. This diverse boyband has captured fangirl’s hearts with their charming and quirky replies to the questions and also their well manners despite being stuck in traffic before the press conference.
The boys even consoled the nervous MCs who were astonished by their charming looks by telling them not to be too nervous and to take a deep breath. How lovely!
