MANILA HORI7ON, the all-Filipino global pop group under MLD Entertainment composed of Vinci, Kim, Kyler, Reyster, Winston, Jeromy, and Marcus kicked off their first-ever comeback showcase for ‘DAYTOUR’ Comeback Showcase in Manila.

Before the showcase, HORI7ON first met the media and shared their experiences over the past year and their preparations for their latest song, ‘LUCKY.’

Looking back on the journey HORI7ON made over the past year to the present day, the boys shared their memorable experiences. Reyster opened up that he’s at ease right now and finally free from stress, revealing that he had struggled with an eating disorder last year.

Meanwhile, their Mexico visit last year impressed Kim because of the huge support they received from the fans. Aside from these, they fondly reminisce about their debut concert at the Araneta Coliseum, engaging in School Attack visits at various schools in South Korea, and participating in music shows.

Reflecting on these memorable moments, one particular event they are always grateful for is when HORI7ON received the “AAA FOCUS AWARD” at the Asia Artist Awards 2023. They shared that their win was completely unexpected yet profoundly unforgettable.

“We really grew a lot as HORI7ON in terms of skills and chemistry. For the past year in Korea, we had many conflicts and ups and downs. I think through the hard times that we experienced, our bond together has been stronger but skill-wise, I think the person who grew the most is Kuya Kyler,” shared Marcus, the youngest member of HORI7ON, when questioned about the member who experienced the most significant growth.

When discussing about being a global pop group, HORI7ON acknowledged that mastering different languages and understanding diverse cultures presents a challenge. However, they expressed their openness to learning and embracing new experiences as they strive to connect with fans worldwide on a global scale.

Their newest single ‘LUCKY’ will once again encapsulate the cheerful and youthful side of the group. This hi-teen vibrant confession song expresses affection for their loved ones.
