  1. Songs or remixes for choreographies must be Korean and may not exceed 5 minutes.
  2. Dances may be covers, choreographies by different dancing schools, or originals. The songs may be in any style, but only in the Korean language. With this in mind, covers of idols are prohibited. For ex.: Lisa’s cover (BP) of Swalla-Jason Derulo will not be allowed.
  3. The audio and/or video file must be on mp3 and must work on the latest VLC software version.

The file must be sent, at the latest, on Thursday, July 25, bearing in mind that there is no possibility of changing it.

If the song is not delivered within the deadline, you will not be able to participate. From July 20 (12:00 noon) to July 25 (12:00 noon).

  1. To facilitate the choice of songs for participants, these shall be published on an online document for display to all as registered entries are confirmed. The name of the group/soloist participating will not appear – only the song.

Should a remix be chosen, the songs used in it will appear on the list, without indicating that they form part of a remix.   

The list is as follows: 


  1. Possible changes in registration shall be handled as follows after registration:
    • A change of song is not possible. Should such a change be desired with the slots full, the solo or group participant will be wait-listed. To do this, it will be necessary to register again, facilitating the data required.
    • It will be possible to change the number of members in a group as long as a group of two or more do not become a soloist. In such a case, the person not withdrawing will be put at the end of soloist waiting list if all the slots in the category are filled.

Member changes may only be allowed up to two days before the contest (Wednesday the 24th, inclusive of the date), barring a case of emergency or force majeure.

  • Withdrawal from registration means that:
  • The group or soloist withdrawing before the contest will not be able to register again in their position, but will be put at the end of the waiting list if the slots are filled.
  • Should a group or soloist withdraw and afterward want to participate again, they will be placed at the end of the waiting list.
  • Should a group withdraw, the next group on the waiting list will be chosen to participate. This option shall only be possible up to two days before the contest; i.e.: If a group withdraws on Wednesday or Thursday, with the contest being held on Friday, NO other group will be chosen. 
    Thus, at the latest, notice shall be sent on Wednesday, July 24, to the next group on the waiting list that was chosen to participate. This same rule shall apply to the soloists’ category.
  • Should a group/soloist not perform on the day of the contest without prior notice, they shall be penalized and will not be able to participate in the next contest.
  1. All participants must be on stage at 15:45 to confirm attendance.
  2. Participants shall have a closed area where they may change (this area has no mirrors) and use the bathrooms. A secure area shall also be available for leaving backpacks and other belongings. These areas may be used all day starting at 11:00.
  3. No changes in the order of the list of participants shall be made, but the sequence of participation will be set randomly once all the slots are occupied. The order shall be published in the same online document as the chosen songs. The list of songs shall bear no relation to the sequence of participants.
