To say Filipinos are big fans of Korean artists would be an understatement. Why? You should've seen the ELFs who went to the launch of Super Junior's Siwon and Donghae for Bench last August 15 at Trinoma! They are one big, crazy and deafening (but still fun) bunch I tell you.

I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of Korean artists or Super Junior for that matter (I only know their "Sorry, Sorry" song - which is quite good!), but I do appreciate them and I must admit that I had a blast even though I lost my sense of hearing for a while back there. But come to think of it, if these guys makes my fellow countrymen go crazy and happy with their presence, then count me in as a fan as well. After all, what makes Filipinos happy makes me happy too!

Another thing, I would like to congratulate Bench for bringing them here. You never run out of surprises! You're one of the reasons why I'm proud to be a Filipino. That and the reason why foreign artists keep on coming back to our shores… our being warm and hospitable. Such is the case of the fans of Siwon and Donghae who showed hospitality in abundance and in deafening proportions.

I'm cutting short the suspense! I'm giving you Siwon and Donghae of the international K-Pop supergroup, Super Junior wearing (and endorsing) Bench! Enjoy!

Lucky fans got Bench shirts signed on the spot by Siwon and Donghae. Posters were also given to another set of fans.

Of course, a photo op with Mr. Ben Chan...

…and more lucky fans! Siwon even assisted one fan (who's on crutch) climb up the stage eliciting more aawwwss and cheers from the fans. Dagdag pogi points!

After the Q&As and the photo ops, Donghae and Siwon left the stage. But much to the delight of their fans,

Donghae came back to the stage to take a photo with...

…Siwon. Of course! The crowd serving as their background.

Need proof why Pinoy fans are one big, crazy, and supportive bunch? Here you go...

daming tao no?
And here are Siwon and Donghae donning the Autumn collection of Bench...

This set I like! I need to get my hands on this cardigan ASAP!
You like what you saw? Well expect more surprises from Bench as we near its most anticipated annual event of the year. The Bench Universe 2012 Denim and Underwear Show!
