“Bravo! ASEAN in Korea 2012″ (Music and Dance Contest for ASEAN Citizens in SK)

Calling all talented ASEAN residents in South Korea… this could be your moment to shine and win 1, 000, 000 KRW or two Round-trip tickets to your home country.

ASEAN-Korea Centre is sponsoring a music and dance contest for ASEAN residents in SK entitled Bravo! ASEAN in Korea 2012. The contest, which will be aired on Arirang TV, aims to share diverse cultures and fellowship among ASEAN and Korean citizens.

To qualify for the competition, you should be a citizen of any ASEAN country (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) and currently residing in South Korea. You can also join as a group composed of ASEAN and Korean members. (The group’s Korean members should not be more than the ASEAN members. The use of K-Pop or other Korean performances in the contest is discouraged.) The application deadline is September 18, 2012. (I should have posted this earlier, but I didn’t check my Email for days!)

To apply, download an application form at www.aseankorea.org, fill it out and send it to [email protected], with a copy of your passport.

Your application will be evaluated. Once approved, you will be called to audition. The preliminary round will be on September 23, 2012, 10 A.M., at Creven Academy (2nd floor Ferrum Tower, 66 Suha-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul).

The main competition will be on October 27, 2012, 5:00 P.M.,  at AX-Korea (Gwangjin-gu, Seoul).

I do hope there will be more Filipinos joining this contest. The person who sent me the letter regarding the event is actually looking for Filipino talents. I’ve heard that not a lot of Pinoys show interest in joining contests like this. There are but a few. There’s even one Pinay who won a singing contest in a famous Korean TV show. I encourage my fellow Pinoys who have a flair for singing and dancing to come out of their shells and share Filipino prowess with pride.
