Hosted by the ASEAN-Korea Center, the fifth “Bravo! ASEAN in Korea” will feature traditional and modern music performances by those from member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Out of 42 teams that vied for spots in preliminary sessions held in Hongdae in Seoul and Ansan in Gyeonggi Province, 10 teams were selected to perform at the event.
The finalists’ stage will be noncompetitive, and all 10 teams will each receive 1 million won ($947) of prize money and a round-trip ticket to their home countries, organizers said.
K-pop boy band 100% will also be invited to celebrate the day.
The annual festival kicked off its run in 2009, when the center opened, to enhance the understanding of ASEAN cultures and promote cultural exchange with Korea.
