Following the conclusion of the K-pop Online Fest and K-Food Online Fest, the Korean Embassy has now launched their third and next initiative — a K-Drama Online Festival. We’ve seen how K-Dramas grew in prominence over the last decade as they create emotional connections with viewers, and this global phenomenon isn’t stopping anytime soon.
In bids to lift Singaporean spirits to tackle COVID-19 through the online hype of the Korean wave in Singapore, the K-Drama Online Festival is kicked off to encourage fans to express their love for Korean culture by recreating scenes from Korean dramas.
Mr Ahn Young-jip, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea added, “I am looking forward to seeing Singaporeans’ creativity through the first K-Drama Festival. K-Dramas have ranked top among Singapore’s most popular content thanks to the people of Singapore who supported and loved K-drama continuously. This festival is a small token of appreciation to K-Drama fans in Singapore. With the energy of K-Drama, let’s stay healthy and overcome the Covid-19 pandemic together”.
To participate in the contest, simply recreate scenes from your favourite Korean drama by recording a short video in either English or Korean. The video entry can be submitted online here and judging criteria will be based on the video content’s fun and creative element, as well as Korean linguistic level (if applicable) amongst other factors.
Participants may stand to walk away with up to S$7,000 worth of products and vouchers in combined value, terms & conditions apply. The contest is open to all Singapore residents and last date of submission will be 9 August 2020, 23:59 hours (GMT+8). For more information, visit www.kdramasg.com.
