[K-POP Sri Lanka 2016 : Q & A]

Some have asked similar questions – we hope you find the following answers useful.

1. If you feel compelled to, you may send in both your Vocal and Vocal with Dance category videos (ie. 2 different videos) however, only 1 performance or an ‘item’ will make to the live stage competition on Saturday, July 23rd 2016. In other words, no participant will have double performance.

2. You can participate as solo, with no ‘team members’ for both vocal and dance category.

3. As for the ‘Vocal with Dance’ category, you are required to “sing” as well as dance as per description ; otherwise, you may go with Vocal category, and still include your moves.

4. With the choice of songs, any version is fine including teledrama OSTs – as long as they are considered ‘K-pop’.

5. Those with a foreign nationality may participate in the online audition, however due to the regulations from the headquarter in Korea, one would not be able to ‘represent’ Sri Lanka as a winner of the qualifier. If this is not a concern, we are happy to have you.

6. The Online Audition Video has to be a non-edited ‘live performance’.

7. On July 23, the day will be solely dedicated to K-pop competition ; and this year, there is no ‘Quiz on Korea’ taking place.

Once again, thank you for your interest and support.

  1. Hello can I know something about quiz on Korea contest?Last year it was hold with kpop world it keep in this year too?


  2. i only saw this now…. the deadline is over right? don’t i have a chance???😭😭 the promotion should be better than this……


    • Dear advertisements were broadcasted on TV channels. Don’t worry you can participate next time !
      Follow and subscribe this blog. Then you will get notifications whenever it’s updated.


    • Hello dear, I’m not sure why they have an age limit. Those are the guidelines for world kpop festival. Probably because only the winner is given the opportunity to go to South Korea for the finals, and if a younger child goes the responsibility and risk goes up.

      How to participate –
      Prepare and upload your performance video (ideally between 5-6 minutes) on YouTube and let us know the link through the Application Form. Alternatively, post your CD with the Application Form to the Embassy at 98 Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 7. The Online Audition is for screening purpose only, and if you wish, you may prepare and perform a different item at the Festival should you be selected, with the approval of the Embassy.
