Super Junior’s Siwon and Donghae arrive in Manila

'Super Junior' Donghae Local clothing brand Bench is seriously going K-Pop as it celebrates 25 years in the fashion industry. Fresh from their confirmation that top Korean actor Lee Min Ho ("City Hunter", "Boys Over Flowers") is the newest addition to their growing international endorsers, Bench prepares another big event for K-Pop fans.

After selling the Super Junior inspired "Sorry Sorry" shirts by the truckload, Bench fulfills their promise of bringing in the much-loved Korean idols Siwon and Donghae from Super Junior.

The Everlasting Friends (E.L.F.), Super Junior fans, welcomed Siwon and Donghae when they arrived in Manila for a Bench fashion event at the Trinoma Activity Center on August 15. Due to the huge demand for tickets, Bench had to run a raffle where 700 lucky fans got a chance to have an up-close view of the boys.

For those who were not so lucky, Bench CEO Ben Chan tweeted to encourage fans to attend since they can still enjoy the event from the upper floors of the venue.

Upon arrival, the two idols took to Twitter to express their excitement. Said Siwon, "I'm here Philippines. feel so good now!" while Donghae could not resist posting a photo of their Bench billboard.

Siwon and Donghae have a huge following in the Philippines. These two idols are not only popular for being members of Super Junior but have also excelled in other fields like drama acting and modeling.

Siwon and Donghae recently wowed their fans in the Taiwanese drama "Skip Beat". Super Junior's newest single "Sexy, Free & Single" also conquered various sales charts last month.
