The sisters are still in! ^^ They got Filipino expats in Korea excited. Facebook walls are mostly about their exhilarating performance tonight. The girls sang “Maria”, original soundtrack of the romantic-comedy “미녀는 괴로워” (200 Pound Beauty). The judges gave them the second highest scores, and mostly positive feedbacks. With two female contenders, Foxstar (여우별밴드) and Lee Haena (이해나), eliminated from the contest, MICA is the only remaining female finalist. Despite their high scores on tonight’s show, they are still on the 9th spot in the votes. Eliminations in every episode are based on votes, so even if the judges are in favor of them, they need more votes to move on to the grand finals. Well, as the show’s motto puts it, “Real miracles never stop”. MICA has gone this far. They made it to the Top 11 through wild card, and now they are part of the Top 9… let us keep supporting them by voting for them and promoting their group. Hopefully, we can get more votes even from non-Filipinos in Korea.
While Filipinos are happy about MICA’s staying in the competition, some Korean netizens have already flooded Tweeter with negative posts about the group. For a country whose citizens are known for their nationalistic fervor, such reaction is understandable. Perhaps, in the weeks to come (hopefully MICA stays), those who bash these talented Filipino performers might just change their minds.
