In Manila, Treasure opened the show with “Jikjin, the carrier track of the group’s first mini-album “The Second Step: Chapter One” that was released in February this year.

It was followed by a performance of “I Love You” from their second single album “The First Step: Chapter Two.”

“Thank you so much. There were a lot of Filipino fans watching our V Live and ontact. We got among ourselves, Treasure, and hope to come here and meet our fans in the Philippines and finally, we are here,” said Choi Hyun-suk.

Jihoon said, “Our Filipino fans asked us a lot to come to the Philippines and I’m glad that we really came here tonight. You guys are so hot. Magandang Teume (Beautiful Teume),” the term for Treasure’s fandom.

“With our Teumes’ reaction, I think we can really, really enjoy tonight, right?,” said Junkyu.

When asked what comes to their mind when they think about the Philippines, Yoshi said, “Definitely the sea because Boracay is so, so pretty.”

Doyoung said, “Yoshi is definitely right on that. We talk about going on vacation all together with Treasure members to Boracay and Cebu.”

“I cannot forget the mango juice. Of course, there is also in Korea but it’s different here. Mangoes in the Philippines are special and different,” said Junghwan.

Treasure also performed “My Treasure,” “MMM” and “Boy,” and wrapped up their set with “Darari.”

Sandara Park, or Dara, former member of 2NE1, was a special guest at the show.
