The much awaited KPOP contest by the Indian KPOP fans is finally here!!!
On a Facebook post shared by the Korean Cultural Centre India , the KPOP Contest 2016 which gives fans the chance to show their dancing and singing skills to Korean Music has finally been announced along with other additional details.
The Grand Finale will be held in Chennai this year!!! It may be mentioned that since India started participating in the KPOP Contest, the finals have always been held in Delhi and hence, this shift is a surprise for the fans but for those fans who have been wanting for a change of venue, this definitely is a happy news. With this shift, KCCI which has been working for the promotion of Korean Culture is bringing KPOP closer to other parts of India as well making them experience the excitement and joy of meeting their favorite KPOP idols! Chennai had experienced a feel of it earlier last year when NSONIC visited the city as part of its India Tour and the fans were very responsive and active!
Like other years, the regional rounds will be held in different parts/regions of India and the dates for it will be announced soon. However before the regional rounds, Indian KPOP fans wanting to participate will have to post their videos online for the first round. The online video submissions for the contest will begin on April 15 and will go on till May 25. As of now, the website where the videos have to be submitted has not been announced so keep checking our website and KCCI’s page for more updates!
In the past grand finales, we have seen NSONIC, ZE:AJ as the judges of the event while IMFACT had also performed as a special guest. KCCI has confirmed that there are definitely celebrity judges for the KPOP Contest Grand Finale but has given no hints! Considering it says judges, is it a KPOP Idol group or a duo or a trio? Get thinking!
Who do you think will be the judges? Are you excited about the event? Time to hit the practice room!!
Share the word because KPOP Contest 2016 has begun!
