HÀ NỘI — A K-pop contest will be held online for people in Việt Nam from August 10 to October 5.
Launched by the Korean Cultural Centre, the K-pop Cover Video Contest aims to strengthen cultural exchange between Việt Nam and South Korea.
“I believe that the contest will contribute to spreading the COVID-19 fighting spirit of Việt Nam and Korea to friends around the world,” said the centre's director Suk Jin-young.
The contest is an annual event held globally and the country winner will take part in the final round in South Korea.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the contest is being online to ensure public safety.
Any person with a passion for dancing or singing K-pop songs can participate in the contest.
Participants can enter the contest by sending a clip of themselves dancing or singing to their favourite K-pop tunes to firstname.lastname@example.org from August 10 to 30.
All entries should be in accordance with Vietnamese culture. Full regulations can be found on the centre's website.
The best dance cover will be invested with US$3,000 whilst the best song cover will get $1,500 to master the clips.
The K-pop World Festival has been held since 2011 in Changwon with the participation of representatives from many countries and regions.
