The winners of Vietnam’s Kpop Festival will attend at Kpop World Festival 2017
The winners of last weekend’s Vietnam’s K-pop Festival will have a chance to attend the Kpop World Festival 2017 in Changwon, South Korea on September.
Oops Crew from Hanoi won the first prize for dance troupe.
In addition, five members, mixed-gender Oops Crew won the first prize with their dances to South Korean songs like OOH – AHH of South Korean girl group Twice, La chA Ta of F(x), Lucifer of SHINee and I Go Crazy Because of You of T-Ara. Second and third prizes belong to The Heat and Heaven Dance Team. Oops Crew was set up by five members who are second-year and fourth-year students at different colleges in Hà Nội. They met together two years ago and bonded over Kpop.
The Kpop festival in Việt Nam was held from May 10 to 13, attracting more than 300 contestants from clubs and dance troupes in Hanoi and HCM City. The top 19 troupes competed at the final night with jurors Lee; Chung Jang-wook, chief representative of the office of Korean Tourism Organisation in Vietnam; representatives of KBS television and Korean Foreign Affairs and Vietnamese choreographer Nguyen Viet Thanh.
The festival is held annually in Vietnam as the regional preliminary. The festival organisers will set up a new band from the winners, which will be trained by Vietnamese and Korean experts before going to attend the Kpop World Festival 2017 in South Korea on September.
It is the 5th Kpop World Festival to be held in Changwon for all those Kpop lovers around the world. Last year, Vietnamese Lotus band attended the final round in South Korea. The Kpop Festival in Vietnam also includes a Kpop exhibition showing collections and productions by Vietnamese fans from 26 Kpop clubs. The final night also saw performance by guest dancers from South Korean B-boy Monkeys.
