Fans all smiles as they meet the MNL48 idols in Handshake Event
MNL48 held a successful second day handshake event of “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” on June 30, 2019 at Movie Stars Cafe.
Welcoming their new and avid fans, the handshake event started off with MNL48’s performance of their kawaii third single hit tracks “Igai Ni Mango”, “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel”, and “Bingo”.
“Sobrang saya dahil nandito kayong lahat para sa amin. Na-appreciate ko po ‘yung efforts ninyo para suportahan kami, mahal na mahal namin kayo,” Yssa expressed her thoughts as she greeted the fans in her first handshake event as an official member.
Joining fellow MNLoves, Prof. Joseph Fortis shared his experience when shaking hands with his new oshi Abby. “Abby is my newest oshi, she got my support because of the ‘Seikimatsu Blue’ movie. Nagulat ako na kilala niya ako, kasi siguro many times na ako pumunta sa mall shows and na shout out niya ako sa Interactive Live.”
“It was just 10 seconds, nasabi ko ‘yung gusto kong sabihin, ‘I love you, God bless, good luck.’ Talagang tatatak na sa isip niya ‘yon,” Prof. Fortis added that his interaction with his oshi and the whole event was amazing and is already looking forward to the next single’s handshake event.
Another loyal MNL48 fan, Stan Gets Kandado flew all the way from Cebu with six of his friends to meet his oshi Alice. “Super gusto ko umiyak pero pinigilan ko kasi sabi niya wag kang umiyak, smile lang tayo,” he said. “Sinabi ko sa kanya na, ‘I worked hard para pumunta dito sa Manila from Cebu just to meet and have a handshake with you.’ I was happy she recognized me,” Kandado narrated, adding his efforts to meet his oshi was worth it despite being tired from his long flight.
Meanwhile, the idols who will fly to Shanghai, China for the AKB48 Group Asia Festival on August 24, 2019 shared their excitement and encouraged their fans to support them in their second international dream joint concert.“Exciting ‘yung mga ipe-perform namin, hindi niyo pa nakikita. Wag kayong mag-alala, hindi namin kayo bibiguin,” said Sheki who is looking forward to perform with other international sister groups once again.
