For the Philippine Cassiopeias, TVXQ's Manila debut has long been overdue. But after 16 years, their long wait will finally be over as the K-pop duo is set to perform for a one-night-only concert on July 13.

PULP Live World, the event's producer, made the announcement on April 30 via their social media accounts.

"Over a decade of anticipation will finally wrap up into an in sync nostalgic trip and glorious fresh era of gleaming stages as 동방신기(TVXQ!) embarks to Manila for their highly-requested show!," the company -- which is known as the pioneering entity in bringing K-pop acts to the Philippines -- said in a statement.

"PULP Live World proudly unveils another legendary show that will bear witness to every PH Cassiopeia's dream-come-true-TVXQ! CONCERT - CIRCLE - #with in Manila will happen on July 13, 2019 | 7pm at the Mall of Asia Arena," it added, further revealing details about the hotly-anticipated show.

Tickets will go on sale starting June 2. Other details like prices and seat plans are yet to be announced.

The upcoming concert will serve as their first-ever show in the Philippines since they first debuted.

Formed in 2003, the K-pop act was originally a five-piece group composed of Jung Yunho (U-know Yunho), Shim Changmin (Max Changmin), Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu. The last three members left the boy band to form the trio JYJ.

A talent signed under SM Entertainment, TVXQ found fame through their albums "Tri-angle" and "Rising Sun." They expanded their following across the region and the world, thanks to their award-winning efforts "'O'-Jung.Ban.Hap." and "Mirotic."

It was in 2012 when TVXQ officially released an album as a duo. The record, "Keep Your Head Down," debuted atop the Gaon Albums Chart. They celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2013 with the release of their neo-soul/pop-themed album, "Tense."

Still an active force in the K-pop industry, they commemorated their 15th anniversary with a single and a music video back in December last year. The song called "Truth" features jazz elements and groove-inducing synths that blend well with the duo's melodic vocals.

This offering served as the carrier single of their effort, "New Chapter #2: The Truth of Love" -- which is their follow-up to "New Chapter #1: The Chance of Love," a record they released in March last year.
