HÀ NỘI South Korea’s B-Boy Crew will perform at the K-Pop Lovers Festival, to be held at Đông Kinh Nghĩa Thục Square in downtown Hà Nội this weekend. 

The crew promise to light up the outdoor stage with world-class performances. B-Boy Crew is the first Korean boy band to win Battle of the Year twice – one of the largest B-boy competitions in the world held in Germany. 

This year’s K-pop Lovers Festival will continue to attract young people who love K-pop with activities such as a K-pop idol exhibition; flashmob and displays to introduce Korean culture, tourism and cuisine. 

"This is the first time the festival has taken place next to Hoàn Kiếm Lake," said director Park Hyejin. "I hope the festival will be an cool destination for young people who love Korean culture and K-Pop during the first days of summer."

Performing at the festival will be Korean GORPHY and Vietnamese singer Min. 

The two-day festival will include a contest entitled K-pop World Festival. The event is the most anticipated contest of the K-Pop community in Việt Nam. The contest’s regional preliminaries are held annually in Việt Nam.

It will begin at 6.30pm with participation of 18 individuals and groups who are final contestants to be selected from a one-month long qualifying round in Hà Nội and HCM City. 

The contest organisers will set up a new band from the winners, which will be trained by Vietnamese and Korean professionals before attending the K-Pop World’s final round in South Korea. 

It is the 9th K-pop World contest to be held in Changwon in September dedicated to all those K-pop lovers around the world. VNS
