It was a very memorable night for DEAN and his Pinoy fans as his birthday coincided with his concert, DEANTRBLxSAAY in Manila. After his successful promo tour in Manila, multi-talented singer-songwriter, DEAN came back to the Philippines along with the stunning singer, SAAY, last November 10, 2018 at the New Frontier Theater to perform and showcase their talents to their precious Pinoy fans.


Kwon So Hee (권소희), also known as SAAY, a former member of K-POP group EvoL, showed her charms to the Filipinos with her amazing performances. The way she sang, rapped, and danced were full of passion and energy which definitely made the whole crowd fall in love with her. Aside from singing her hit songs Cold View, Circle, Fallin’. Love Drop, Sweaty, and Encore, she proved that she can easily hit those high notes during her cover of L.O.V.E. by Frank Sinatra.

It is true that Dean’s music has become a virus that infected a lot of listeners. His great passion for music and ability to write amazing songs has reached not thousand but millions of people all over the world!

For Kwon Hyuk (DEAN), it is a special showcase, as he decided to celebrate his birthday with the REBELs! The fans sang Happy Birthday to him, as he appeared shy and thankful to every person present at the event.

Despite catching a cold three days prior to the the event, he still managed to hype up the crowd and make them fall in love with his charms while performing his hits Put My Hands on You, 21, Fanxy Child, instagram, D (Half Moon), love, I’m Not Sorry and Bermuda Triangle.

It was a indeed a thrilling night for REBELS and SAAY’s fans and I am sure that they are already preparing themselves to see their idols once again so that they will be fully prepared when DEAN or SAAY comes back to our beloved country!

Special thanks to Universal Music Philippines (MCA Music) for bringing these two awesome idols in the Philippines 🙂
