A Taste of Hip Hop from Epik High
South Korean hip-hop group Epik High recently visited Manila last April 18 for their Epik High Concert Parade at the SM North EDSA Skydome.
Tablo, Mithra, and DJ Tukutz opened the night with songs “Encore,” “Fly,” “Up,” and “Burj Khalifa.”
During their spiels, Tablo commented, “It’s really hot here! In Korea, it’s still a little winterish. We were surprised when we got here! I think it’s too hot, we need to cool down a bit.”
The trio then proceeded to sing tracks “It’s Cold,” “Umbrella,” “Map The Soul,” and “Happen Ending.”
Hundreds of Highskools (fanclub name) sang their heart out when the group sang “Love Love Love” and Tablo’s version of Big Bang Taeyang’s “Eyes, Nose, Lips.”
The party was only getting started as Tablo shouted, “[You’re all] totally great! Hot is better than cold! It’s perfectly hot here! I love it! Should we get hotter?”
Fans jumped up and down when they performed “Kill This Love,” “High Technology,” “One,” and “New Beautiful.”
It was also a sight to see DJ Tukutz dance solo! We also can’t help but giggle at Tablo’s cute antics when he played with DJ Tukutz’s DJ set. And we also can’t forget how Mithra poured water over himself. Must have been really hot, eh? Hot enough for the three to also pour water over the audience! Highskools don’t seem to mind it, too.
Epik High then sang their last song for the night “Fan.” But fans won’t go home without hearing their latest single “Born Hater.” The fans chanted “Born Hater!” “Born Hater!”
A few seconds after, Tablo, Mithra, and DJ Tukutz came back on stage to finally sing the most anticipated song of the night “Born Hater.” They ended the night my personal favorite “Don’t Hate Me.”
The intimate venue is really what made the concert even more special. It felt like one private party for all Filipino Highskools, we can’t wait till the boys visit the country again!
