In a month or so, Coslandia 2019 will be held at SMX Convention Center Aura (inside SM Aura Premier in Taguig City). I’ve been to their first Coslandia held at Eton Centris before, but this year’s edition is set way, way high already. Here’s why:

Coslandia is organized by HalloHallo Entertainment, which manages the official AKB48 sister group in the country, MNL48. The group is set to perform the main theme of Coslandia as their 5th Single, in which Gabb is already announced as the song’s center. That alone ain’t enough to describe the IDOL aspect of this event.

You see, aside from MNL48, Coslandia has other guests from Japan such as Amatsusora (and its leader Samero), 1-Girls, Graco Rex Neo, Hazuki Tsubasa, Yuasa Michiru, Fairytales, and TJ (Hirotoshi Maeda).
