Promoting “Idols you can meet” culture here in the Philippines, MNL48 holds its first day of Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie Handshake event at Centris Elements on March 10, 2019.
Following the tradition of the highest-selling J-pop phenomenon and their sister group AKB48, fans who availed their Platinum hit single “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie” of MNL48 will get a chance to be up close and shake hands their chosen oshi for 10 seconds compared from the “Aitakatta – Gustong Makita” Handshake event which is only five seconds.
The event started off as Team MII, Team L and Kenkyuusei perform “First Rabbit” followed by the performance of “Palusot Ko’t Maybe” by Team NIV and their Gold and Platinum hit single "Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie". The group also dedicated their new theater song, “Manila 48”, to their fans.
Also, Center Girl Sheki wishes all their fans to have a chance to shake hands with all the MNL48 members. The three-time Center Girl invited the MNLoves to join and support them on their upcoming concert MNL48 First Generation “Living the Dream: The Concert” at New Frontier theater on April 6, 2019.
Many emotions have been felt as fans shake their Idol’s hand for the second time and one of the them shared his thoughts how he felt happy for this event. “Actually ang dali lang ng tanong pero para sa isang fan ang hirap nya sagutin kasi sobrang saya and nakakakaba pa rin na kahit second time mo na, it still feels na parang first time mo parin kasi Idol nay un e, parang in a quarter yun na ‘yung interaction nyo na sobrang close” Lee Yoo Lazarra said.
“For now kasi ginawa na nilang 10 seconds, mas matagal compared sa first time na five seconds. Mas matagal tong PFC Handshake so ang haba nung time na nakausap ko ‘yung Oshi ko which is sobrang saya at nakaka-overwhelmed” he added.
Meanwhile MNL48 Necca expressed her gratitude to everyone who joined them today. “Thank you so much po MNLoves, specially to those people na nakipag-handshake sa bawat isa saamin. I hope to see you all again sa mga upcoming events and specially sa firsst ever concert namin na Living the Dream: The concert na gaganapin sa New Frontier Theater. We hope to see you there”.
Colleen, the center of “Palusot Ko’y Maybe”, acknowledge all the efforts that their supporters exert on their previous events and mall shows. “Nagpapasalamat po kami sa pagpapakita nyo po ng unending love and support saaming lahat. We hope to see you po on our second-day handshake next Sunday.”
Looking back, MNL48 together with Kenkyuusei had their first Handshake Event as an official first generation members and trainees last November 25, 2018 at Movie Stars Cafe for “Aitakatta – Gustong Makita” single
