Meet the 7 “Dream Maker” Finalists Who Will Debut As HORI7ON in South Korea

ABS-CBN reality show “Dream Maker” has reached its end last Sunday and we finally got to meet the last-standing seven members who will now go on to become the newest boyband HORI7ON.

“Dream Maker,” which was a survival series wherein the public audience had to vote among 62 hopefuls on who they want to debut as a global pop group in South Korea after a string of talent-based challenges, had its finale episode on February 12 with 16 contestants remaining. These finalists were split into two groups to perform the songs “Dash” by BULL$EYE and “Deja Vu” by Seo Won-jin.

The seven winners who garnered the most public votes are as follows:

  1. Jeromy Batac (3,188,238)
  2. Marcus Cabais (2,824,716)
  3. Kyler Chua (2,697,520)
  4. Vinci Malizon (2,447,877)
  5. Reyster Yton (2,285,407)
  6. Kim Ng (2,240,510)
  7. Winston Pineda (2,049,832)

According to reports, HORI7ON will do promotional events throughout the months of February and March before moving to South Korea to prepare for their debut that’s slated for June of this year.

The boys also promised that they will keep their Filipino roots intact despite training in a different country.

“I think it’s a privilege for us Filipinos na mabigyan ng opportunity na mag-promote sa Korea. I think the Filipino culture inside of us, madadala namin siya inevitably and naturally sa global stage,” said Vinci Malizon during the “Dream Maker” finale press conference last week. “Even if we’re training with Korean coaches, there are also Filipino coaches who will train, and I think ‘yun ‘yung magandang dynamic na mabibigay sa’ming ‘Dream Chasers,’ kasi we get the true experience of the collaboration between South Korea and Philippines.”

We wish them the best of luck!
