Legendary boxer and Philippine senator Manny Pacquiao will visit Seoul for the first time. He will arrive at Incheon Airport on December 23rd, Friday. He will be staying at “The K Hotel” in Seocho-gu. The K Hotel is selling Christmas cakes (30,000 won) and wine (35,000 won) so you might want to check them in case you decide to drop by.
Manny Pacquiao will participate in charity bazaars, fan meeting, fan signing at the invitation of Wichal Cosmetics. He was supposed to arrive in Korea on December 22nd but a delay in the issuance of visa prompted them to move their trip on the 23rd. Apparently, members of the Pacquiao family want to celebrate the Christmas holidays in Seoul and they have to process their visas, too. This is the first time that the Pacquaio clan will be traveling abroad to celebrate Christmas.
The Philippine senator and K-Sports Star will hold a special event for his fans. They will be held on December 24th and December 25th. The schedule is the same for both days:
9:00 am – 12:00 nn – Charity Bazaar
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm – Fan Meeting and Fan Sign
3:00 pm – 9:00 pm – 7080 Live Concert and Food Party
Tickets are priced at 100,000 won per person. The event will be held at “The K Hotel Grand Ballroom” on the 2nd floor. Event goers will be given a free T-shirt and premium cosmetics by Wichal. Tickets are available on Ticket Monster.
If you don’t have any plan for the Christmas holiday, then this might be the event for you.
Manny Pacquaio is a legend in boxing history. He started his career in the Philippines and gained worldwide fame for being the only boxer to win world titles in eight different divisions. The invitation for him to visit Korea came from “Second Thought” by Wichal Cosmetics. His visit to Korea was first announced on December 16th. He celebrated his 38th birthday on December 17th, where the Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte was one of the guests. The President said that the boxer might be a president of the Philippines someday.
