TREASURE, on the other hand, is a boy band formed in 2019 through YG Entertainment’s survival show YG Treasure Box. The group debuted in 2020 under the same management.

TREASURE is composed of 12 members namely Choi Hyunsuk, Jihoon, Yoshi, Junkyu, Mashiho, Yoon Jaehyuk, Asahi, Bang Yedam, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jeongwoo and So Junghwan.

Only ten members are coming to Manila as two members, Bang Yedam and Mashiho, are currently on a temporary hiatus due to personal and health reasons respectively.

The 2022 K-Pop Masterz will be the second in-person Kpop concert in the Philippines since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The first one was the Begin Again: KPOP Edition, which was held on May 29 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
