STAYC’s first-ever Manila fanmeet moved to larger venue

Details for the Jakarta and Taiwan dates will be coming soon

Kpop girl group STAYC‘s inaugural fanmeeting in the Philippines has been moved to a bigger venue.

The group’s inaugural Manila outing will now be held at the FYM HALL in EVM Convention Center, Quezon City this December 3, with ticketing details set to be revealed next week. No new details were revealed about the group’s teased Jakarta and Taiwan fanmeet dates, though the poster indicates the information will be coming soon.


STAYC released their mini-album ‘We Need Love’ earlier this year in July. The project features a total of four tracks, namely title track ‘Beautiful Monster’, ‘I Like It’, ‘Love’ and a TAK remix of the girl group’s previous title track ‘RUN2U’, taken from their February mini-album ‘YOUNG-LUV.COM’. The group previously described ‘We Need Love’ as “less like idol music”, though NME found the effort to be lacking in a three-out-of-five star review.

Noting that the group “may have played it safe” on the record, writer Tanu I. Raj added that while the songs have individual strengths, ‘We Need Love’ “leaves much to be desired as a whole”.

STAYC’s sophomore mini-album ‘YOUNG-LUV.COM’ conversely received high praise, with NME’s Angela Patricia Suacillo praising the effort as “a mature, ambitious return that ups the ante” and is “not just a demonstration of where their growth has taken them, but a promise to constantly up the ante”.

In an interview with NME earlier this year in March, Sumin, Sieun, Isa, Seeun, Yoon and J discussed their rapid rise to fame, with Sieun admitting, “I think about whether we’ll be able to deliver to our fans as much as we prepared, and if we’ll be able to promote successfully and show STAYC’s growth.”

However, the STAYC main vocalist was optimistic about the group’s future, stating, “It’s not too difficult or heavy to carry, so there isn’t anything I feel that I need to ‘overcome’. Our members all just have to trust ourselves and each other – and leave the results up to our efforts and luck!”
