Hong Jeong Yong, Chief Representative of KOCCA Vietnam, head of the organizing committee, said that KOCCA Vietnam hopes that the program will be a space to show the passion for K-pop especially for Vietnamese young people.
"Through the program, I believe that K-pop in particular and Korean culture, in general, will always be favored by Vietnamese people and Vietnamese-Korean cultural exchanges will be increasingly promoted," he said.
There are hundreds of thousands of people in Vietnam who love K-pop (South Korean popular music). The melodies of famous Korean music groups such as BTS, Blackpink, NCT, Twice, 2NE1 can be heard in many places on the streets of Vietnam. Therefore, KOCCA Vietnam wants to create a K-pop music party for every young Vietnamese who shares the same love of K-pop to enjoy and spread the love of K-pop.
This is the second time the “K-pop Songs I Love” contest has been held in Vietnam in four major cities, including Danang, Binh Duong, Ho Chi Minh City, and Hanoi. Nearly 300 Vietnamese young people nationwide have registered to participate in the program since August 2023. In the autumn atmosphere of Hanoi, the 24 best-qualified contestants from the above cities shone together at this K-pop party.
