The Korean Culture Centre’s end of year party was held in Sydney last Thursday night, and it went off!
With epic singing and dance cover performances from BTS’ Fire to SNSD’s Into the New World, fun games such as Chubby Bunny (our very own Andy had a shot at the gold prize!) and of course, FOOD, it was definitely a great way to wrap up 2016!
The DJ went through the ages of Asian pop, starting from the 1990s and 2000s classics all the way to the latest releases of the 2010s. So whether you’re a newbie to the Asian pop world or have been a long-time stan, there was something for everyone!
We interviewed some of the performers who shared their very own Asian pop stories. One performer recalled how shocked she was at hearing her favourite song, Blackpink’s Boombayah, play over the speakers whilst she was shopping at Woolies. Even whilst paying at the cashier, she couldn’t stop herself busting out the choreography to it – in public.
Another performer reminisced on how he went to BTS’ concert in Sydney last year and during the VIP Hi-touch event sang one of their songs, “Hold Me Tight”, to them. However, he regretted how he was so much into the song’s feels that he had his eyes closed and missed out on seeing BTS’ faces up-close. Oh, what a shame! However, he heard Rap Monster say, “Oh, you’re amazing, man!," so it was a still a blessed memory for him.
For those who couldn’t make it last night or might have FOMO, not to worry, you can check our Facebook live from the event on the SBS PopAsia Facebook page.
