K-Pop is extremely popular right now in the Phillippines. Many groups have performed in Manila including SEVENTEEN, Red Velvet, and EXO.
In fact, just last Friday SUPER JUNIOR had a concert at Mall of Asia Arena in Manila! The continual rise of K-Pop has got the province of Cebu trying to get BTS to come to them.
Since Manila has had so much success with K-Pop, a Cebu-based production company is currently trying to organize a concert with BTS.
Since there are 30 people in their entourage including crew and staff, the rumor is that BTS management has asked for a talent fee for about 60 million PHP (~$1,124,400 USD).
Cebu is hoping that BTS will be coming next year and adding them to their tour stops.
