HallyUniverse is an event brought to you by the University of the Philippines Society of Students for Korean Popular Culture. The flagship event first started in 2013 with HallyUniverse 1: The Kpop Takeover, and since then, the event has had seven successful installments.
Much like its name suggests, HallyUniverse is a convention, a world — a universe for all things Hallyu. Since its debut, it has become an avenue for K-Pop enthusiasts to gather and share their mutual love for Korean popular culture. Furthermore, it does not only feature show-stopping performances from K-Pop cover groups, HallyUP’s very own members, and local artists, but also provides K-Pop enthusiasts the chance to play games, visit different booths, win raffle prizes and listen to talks about Korean popular culture.
HallyUniverse’s Comeback Stage
This year, HallyUniverse 8: The Infinite Beyond returns to Salazar Hall, UP Bahay ng Alumni in UP Diliman, Quezon City on May 27, 2023, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. It may not be a Music Bank or Inkigayo comeback stage, but HallyUniverse 8: The Infinite Beyond is sure to bring home all the awards for its on-site comeback this time!
To make up for the last four years, HallyUP made sure to deliver a HallyUniverse like you’ve never seen before. This year’s star-studded lineup includes performances by BINI, G22, Joshua Kim, and many more. HallyUniverse 8 will also be graced by the presence of its special guests, SFU professor Dr. Dal Yong Jin, and Tiktok star Junjun Salarzon, more commonly known as Ramburat. Moreover, the premier Korean Popular organization of UP Diliman has also partnered with several fanbases and K-Pop shops so fans of any K-Pop group or artist can enjoy, gather, and interact with one another and buy various kinds of K-Pop merchandise at this special convention.
A Concert for a Cause
From the get-go, HallyUniverse has always had an entire category of its own. It isn’t just a convention of different fan clubs, nor is it just a concert. It is also a fundraising event for Kopino Children Association Inc., a non-profit organization that has been helping disadvantaged children and youth of Korean-Filipino descent since 2004. Some of the organization’s programs include providing academic scholarships to Korean-Filipino students, transient housing, and helping them find and reunite with their Korean parents. 80 percent of the event proceeds and the donations that will be received from HallyUniverse 8 will be donated to the association.
To support and help its beneficiaries, HallyUP aims to raise PHP20,000 from HallyUniverse 8: The Infinite Beyond. Pre-order tickets cost PHP180 each and are available for purchase through this link: bit.ly/HallyUniverse8. You may also visit HallyUP’s Facebook page for more information and details.
