What is “Ripples for Hope”?

The Ripples for Hope is a fundraising initiative under The Ripple Society catering to Filipino K-Pop and K-Drama fans from all walks of life. It hopes to gather fans into one big K-pop Friendship Day following themes similar to school fairs and sports fest.

The goal of the event is to promote camaraderie among fans and to provide an avenue to build rapport and harmonious relationships with one another regardless of the artists they support and follow. It also hopes to gain resources that could help The Ripple Society fulfill its charity works in the future to support fellow fans and those who are in need.

This event will feature the participation of fan bases and fan clubs of different Korean artists who will battle it out for the title of the ultimate Ripple Champion.

The headliners for the night show


One of the renowned singing duos of K-pop, AKMU is known for its diverse music styles and melodies, having multiple awards under its belt.

Honestly, I’ll be hard-pressed to recommend only a single song from them, as they have so many good ones, to begin with, but for those who are looking, I’ll definitely say:


Known for its strong girl-crush concepts and charisma, the six-member girl group will be visiting Manila for the first time since its debut.

With some chart-topping hits on their belt, that night on November 26 will be surely exciting not only for FOREVERs out there but also for every K-pop fan around.

One song to recommend? Here:


Returning to Manila for who knows how many times already, MOMOLAND is probably one of the staple K-pop groups who frequented Philippines because of their striking popularity here – but don’t let that fact fret you, there’s a reason WHY they’re that popular here.

With their seemingly hypnotic tracks like Bboom Bboom and BAAM, along with dance moves that even a non-K-pop fan knows, surely their return to Manila will be worth it for Merries.
