A highly respected Filipina singer is coming to Seoul and I’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss her! Thanks to Cathy for the heads-up. Lea Salonga will perform in a concert simply titled “Lea Salonga First Musical Concert in Seoul” on June 16th, Monday at 8 PM. Tickets range from 30,000 won to 180,000 won. I seriously want to attend the concert but I read that children below 7 will not be allowed inside. So I hope my husband would come home earlier that day. Last Tuesday night, I was supposed to go with Jasmin and other friends to watch KBS Open Concert but they wouldn’t allow kids younger than 8 inside the studio.
Lea Salonga is from my hometown Angeles City. She gained international fame through the musical play “Miss Saigon”. She also won a Laurence Olivier and a Tony award for her role. She’d been in Les Miserables twice, first as Eponine and later as Fantine. She is the first Asian to perform at the Oscar Awards.
Tickets for her concert are available online through Interpark.
