Singapore – Do you have what it takes to be the next K-Pop star?

The ninth edition of the Changwon K-Pop World Festival, which is the largest K-Pop competition in the world, has begun and all K-Pop enthusiasts are invited to join.

Preliminary rounds are being held in their respective countries. Shortlisted preliminary finalists will be invited to Korea for a 2-week all-expense paid programme where they will be groomed and trained in preparation for the grand finals in Changwon on October 2019.

Back in 2017, Singapore’s Akif secured a place in the finals and claimed the “Top Vocals” prize.

The competition is open to anyone who works or studies and resides in Singapore, excluding tourists and those of Korean descent. Those interested to apply and have only one parent of Korean citizenship are eligible to join.

Interested applicants may compete under the two categories of the competition – vocal and dance performances.

Applicants will battle it out on stage at the Singapore Preliminary and the top two acts from both categories will move on to participate in the next round, representing Singapore in the Changwon K-Pop World Festival.

Although there are no restrictions to the number of members per group, they are urged to have the same number of members as the original K-Pop group from which they have chosen their songs to perform.

Interested applicants may submit their audition video via the online registration form on the official website: www.sgkpopworldfest.com between now and June 5, 2019. -/TISG
