KOREAN R&B ARTISTS DEANTRBL X SAAY IN MANILA

South Korean R&B Artists DEAN and SAAY hyped the crowd during their concert last November 10, 2018 at the New Frontier Theater (formerly KIA Theatre). DEANTRBL X SAAY is Dean’s second visit in the country, his first visit was during his DEAN 130 MOOD: TRBL Philippine Promo Tour back in August 2016. It was also Dean's birthday concert that made it his second visit extra special! K-pop is way more intense based on choreographies, colorful production designs and arena-worthy bangers, but the soul of K-R&B lets you sway and dance to its street style-sexy beat! Dean and Saay gave that kind of feeling to the Filipino Rebels! Dean is the kind of trouble that you need. Watch his 'Put My Hands On You' LIVE performance during the concert.
