Winners of K-POP World Festival Bangladesh audition announced

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Dhaka announced six winners of the 2021 K-pop World Festival Bangladesh audition, which was held virtually in June and July with the sponsorship of the Korean Government and Samsung Electronics Bangladesh.

The six talented teams of Bangladesh youths were selected among the 142 teams who participated in the contest by submitting their K-pop performance video clips. The performers were requested to submit two performances: one from a designated K-pop group: BTS or Black Pink, and another from a freely selected K-pop song.

 The evaluation and screening were done by selection panel composed of five professionals in various sectors including the media, journalists and scholars, in two stages.

In the first-stage on July 12, the panel nominated 15 teams among 142 for the second phase competition, and the six teams - LXS, EXD, Lost Dynasty, Dxverse, Heaven's LAW, and Bule Poppers - were selected at the Panel screening held on July 29.

The selected six teams will be awarded by the Embassy, and their performance videos will be submitted to the organiser of the 2021 Changwon K-pop World Festival, which will be held in October in Korea pending the COVID-19 situation.
