DS-160 needed to schedule interview for K-1?

On the webpage http://ustraveldocs.com/ph/ph-niv-appointmentschedule.asp under supporting documents it states that you need the DS-160 confirmation page to schedule interview. According to Manila instructions only the DS-156, DS-156K and DS-157 are needed. Just wondering if anyone here can confirm if DS-160 needed or not?

It's country-specific and DS-160 is not listed on the DS forms required for the K1 interview in the Philippines

Good luck!
