Four Vietnamese students won second prize at the 2011 K-Pop World Festival in Changwon, Korea, on December 7, organised by the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) and the Republic of Korea (RoK) Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
According to the RoK Cultural Centre in Hanoi, this first K-Pop World Festival was held to promote RoK popular music to a wider audience and provide an opportunity for young pop music aficionados to participate in the event. The festival attracted 21 groups from 16 countries including the UK, Peru, Russia, Indonesia, Japan, and Vietnam.
Four representatives for Vietnam were selected from the 500 contestants in a singing contest held in October by the RoK Culture Centre in Vietnam and the RoK Department of Tourism and Culture.
In the K-Pop World Festival, the four Vietnamese students, Tran Thi Quynh Mai from the Hanoi University of Foreign Trade, Le Hue Thuong from the National Academy of Music, Bui Phuong Linh from Ho Chi Minh City College of Stage Arts and Cinema, and Hieu Tran from the Ho Chi Minh City University of Economics, impressed both the jury and audience with their song “Love, Oh Love” by Davichi.
The director of the RoK Cultural Centre in Vietnam, Keum Gi Hyung, said the participation of Vietnamese students, along with the applause from over 100,000 Vietnamese people living in the RoK and a similar number of Koreans in Vietnam, helped boost cultural exchanges and understanding between the young people of the two countries, as well as the friendship between the two nations.
