ITZY has been to the Philippines thrice before: first in December 2019 several months after debuting, last January as the first stop of its "CHECKMATE" world tour, and most recently in April for a fan meet courtesy of a local fashion brand.

The girl group composed of Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong and Yuna won two awards at last year's AAA, the Best Artist Award and Best Asia Celebrity, both in the Music category.

Stray Kids similarly also first visited the country in 2019 then had two visits this year, a fanmeet in January and a concert in March, both at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The boy group composed of Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin and I.N also won two awards in the last edition of the AAA, the Daesang Grand Prize for Album of the Year and the Best Choice Award for Music.

The Boyz's previous two visits to the Philippines were both earlier this year, the "K-Verse" concert in April and the solo "Zeneration" world tour concert in July, and was also a Best Artist Award winner last year.
