It’s the second half of 2018 already and Malaysians are still very much obsessed with Korean food, culture and tradition; basically, anything remotely Korean. That’s how strong the Korean Wave (Hallyu) is!

To douse (or feed) this fever, depending on how one looks at it, Ipoh Parade is hosting a carnival that spotlights Korean culture, to further introduce a variety of Korean-themed attractions and activities to the masses.

Participants compete against one another in a battle that prioritises flawless mimicry of their favourite K-Pop groups. Therefore, points are given based on impersonation, recreation and emulation of a single, uninterrupted dance choreography by famous K-Pop groups.

Groove like K-Pop stars and stand a chance to win prizes worth over RM4,500. For entry forms and further information, log on to Ipoh Parade’s official Facebook Page.
