Have you got what it takes for the Korean Wave Contest?

Call yourself a K-pop fan? Then we bet you have some Kpop-influenced talent just waiting to be discovered.

Kick, kick: Can you flick that leg?

Here’s your chance to show Malaysia what you’ve got – the Korean Wave Contest organized by Korea Tourism Organization (KTO). If you can sexily flick your leg like SNSD or chest pump like the 2PM boys, come show us!

Pump, pump: Can you do the chest pump?

In conjunction with Korea Be Inspired Festival 2010 and Visit Korea Year 2010 – 2012, KTO is organizing a competition for all Malaysians and K-pop fans in Malaysia. You must be able to sing, dance or impersonate a Kpop star. (We know you've been doing it in the shower, now take it to the stage!)

Up for grabs are tour packages to South Korea, a cash prize of RM1,000 and gifts.

Come audition

Of course, we need to see what you’ve got first. KTO is looking for 8 finalists (whether teams or individuals) for this grand event.

Auditions will be held on April 17 at Korea Plaza (Ground Floor, Menara Hap Seng, Kuala Lumpur) from 2pm – 5pm.

Interested?

Get your registration forms (so you know the terms and conditions) at Korea Plaza OR email KTO at klktocontest@gmail.com OR call KTO at 03-2143 9000 (ask for Valene).

Apart from that, join the Korea Be Inspired 2010 FB fan page.

Registration ends April 14.

Final showdown

If you (or your group) make it through the auditions, you’ll be performing at the Korean Wave Contest final, to be held at the KL Live Center in Jalan Sultan Ismail on May 15.

As a finalist, you have the chance to walk away with the:
  • Grandprize: 5 X Tour packages to South Korea + gift
  • 1st Runner up: 2 X Tour packages to South Korea + gift
  • 2nd Runner up: 1 X RM1,000 + gift
Are you game?

Your time to shine has come, fellow K-popped! friends. Are you ready for the challenge?

Hi Empress, the T&C is really long.

Just call / send KTO an e-mail and they will send you the registration form where everything is stated. It's really simple :-).

janika_merquita said...

Hey! I want to join.. huhuu.. is it for malaysian people only?? I'm out of state. can i participate also???

Liz said...

Hey Janika,if you can make your way down to KL for the auditions, you can surely participate :-).

Cyfull, maybe you'll be able to spot us. We might wear our K-popped! shirts. Tee hee.

janika_merquita said...

that's my biggest problem. I don't have enough money. is it ok to send some video clips?? or not???

Liz said...

Hi janika, no, the current contest doesn't accept videos. You need to be at there physically at the auditions. If there is another contest next year, maybe you can try that one?

janika_merquita said...
