Time flies for the Binnians of the Hyun Bin Philippine Fan Club. They are an enthusiast group idolizing the Korean Heartthrob from the Crash Landing on you Kdrama. It was released by NETFLIX early 2020.
It’s been almost a year since Binnians (term used as what they call the members) of this biggest, most active Fan Club in the Philippines for the actor has taken the Fangirling experience to a different league in ways no other fan groups have done. Their 2020 Birthday celebration made its way to be featured in multiple articles both locally & internationally.
“I am more challenged this year, since the fan club have grown almost 200% from the time we held 2020 Hyun Bin’s Virtual Party celebration for the fans.”Ms. Cherry Saculo, President of the Hyun Bin Philippine Fan Club (HBPFC) and CEO of Manila Preneur Corp (MPC)
According to her, other fan groups who were active last year have already stalled or abandoned their pages due to their weakening online communities. They may have lost interest to fangirling since most are back to their busy schedule just like the pre-pandemic days.
“I am very thankful that the Binnians of the HBPFC remained strong. I made sure that MPC continues to create exciting content for the HBPFC. Like monthly virtual streams, fan engagements thru our fanzine and even charity initiatives. It is important that every fan feels their sense of belongingness to the group”, added by the dedicated Fan club President.
Hyun Bin’s Birthday Celebration
The birthday of Hyun Bin is on Sept 25, the actor is turning 39. The “NINANG” pre – concept launched by Manila Preneur Corp. is indeed very witty for a startup drive. In the world of fangirling, fans normally contribute individual efforts in order to create activities for their community. The HBPFC is lucky to have a solid support from an Integrated Marketing Agency since the owner herself is a hardcore fangirl herself.
Cherry says, “Ever since I was chosen to lead this group, I wanted to change the usual ways of a fanclub, like admins are in lead and fans are just audience, surely that set up is something I want to get rid of. I like every fan to be proud of herself, I think is the reason why we are growing.”
In few weeks, the Binnians will be busy executing their Birthday Charity Event. This includes the come-back of the Hyun Bin Beer and the actual gift sending of the Gift they prepared for Hyun Bin. Everyone is excited to the most awaited Virtual Birthday Party celebration. Fans will gather online to play games, give a toast, blow the cake. They are all ready to Sing Happy Birthday for their Oppa Hyun Bin.
It is recalled that the 2020 gifts to Hyun Bin (Shoe art & Exclusive Craft Beer brew) were a hit, since it proudly symbolized the character of Capt. Ri with clear Filipino branding.
What to expect?
This 2021, “Suspense is important, as a fan club we share teasers from time to time, but everyone needs to wait for THE-DAY. Some fans are even more excited to celebrate their Idol’s Birthday versus their own birthdays, that’s why it’s a Fan Community Celebration, we are inviting every single fan to join us, there is no requirement as long as you’re looking for FUN. Then we are the here to fulfill that Fun-gilring to Hyun Bin. “, – Ms. Cherry Saculo of HBPFC and MPC.
