Not only is the K-Pop area new, but for the first time this autumn Yunicon & Mindeullae will present the must-join event for all K-Pop coverists:

 

The competition will probably take place on the Saturday of the convention and will be taking place on the main stage in the big hall. There are great prizes to be won, as well as the chance to perform on a big stage in front of an enthusiastic audience!

Conditions of participation:

  • The most frequently asked question will be answered first:

One may participate in both K-Stage! Move (K-Pop Dance Contest) as well as the K-Pop Area and the general Dance Contest of the Yunicon.

However, one may not perform the same songs at both contests!

  • Medleys are allowed
  • Maximum performance length is 5 minutes
  • Only Korean songs are allowed (no versions in other languages)
  • Only the original choreography is allowed. If there are improvised passages in the original song, it is of course permitted to improvise during those parts as well.
  • There are no restrictions on participation (age, nationality, gender, etc.)
  • Acrobatics and other stunts must be pre-announced at the time of registration.
  • “Safety pants” must be worn under skirts and dresses!

Judging:

  • The jury will consist of 3 people (for data protection reasons they will not be announced in advance)
  • Scoring will be based on points. These will be awarded for dance performance (power, accuracy of steps), synchronicity, charisma (“facial expressions”) and overall performance.
  • A strong reaction from the audience can earn you extra points

Further Info:

  • Both participants and spectators must purchase an entry ticket to gain access to the convention. These, as well as any other costs associated with the competition, are non-refundable.
  • We are still in an unpredictable pandemic situation – Mindeullae therefore reserves the right to make organisational changes.
  • Like other parts of the Yunicon programme, K-Stage! Move will be filmed and the individual performances uploaded to Youtube. Individual clips may be used by Yunicon and Mindeullae for promotional purposes. By registering you agree to these conditions.

 

Have fun and we are looking forward to your registrations!
