Jackson Wang of K-pop boy group GOT7 performed songs from his upcoming album on “2022 K-pop Masterz in Manila” on July 29.
Filipino fans were able to see and hear Jackson perform live four songs from his album “Magic Man” which will be released on September 9.
Jackson, GOT7’s BamBam and K-pop idol group Treasure were the featured performers at the show held at the Mall of Asia Arena.
From “Magic Man”, Jackson opened his set with “Cruel” followed by “Blow”, “Drive It Like You Stole It” and “Blue”.
It’s been two years and nine months since GOT7 held their “Keep Spinning 2019” World Tour in Manila on October 26, 2019 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
When asked what he thought was the standout moment from the concert, Jackson said he remembered the cheers from Filipino fans.
“First of all, the passion is, I think, just on another level. When they’re cheering you on, you know they mean it. That wave just comes at you and hits you,” Jackson said.
Besides performing in Korea, Jackson also performs in China and other countries.
Last April, Jackson performed at Coachella in California as part of 88rising’s lineup with CL and 2NE1.
He said he was so nervous he forgot to spit out his gum before his performance.
“It was so crazy. I was so nervous I forgot to spit out my gum. I was chewing them all the time. I forgot, I was so nervous I forgot. Then I started my set…I can’t do that, I can’t throw it away, I can’t swallow it so I just kept it in my mouth,” he recounted.
During his set, Jackson went the extra mile by stepping down to the audience area to give a fan an autographed ball. He ended his set with “100 Ways”.
After the show, Jackson posted on Twitter and thanked the fans.
“Thank you so much #Manila for hosting me. Y’all are a crazy crowd and I love the passion, like I said, when y’all clap you meant it! I could feel it. Like a wave rolling over me I’m so blessed to be playing for you all. Hope you all made it home safe and sound! See you! #MAGICMAN September 9th,” he said.
The “Masterz K-pop 2022 in Manila” was presented by Pulp Live World.
