The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Qatar announced that they will be holding a regional preliminary to select participants for the 2024 Changwon K-pop World Festival in October.

According to the Korean Embassy, all K-pop fans in Qatar are welcome to join the auditions. While participation is open to all residents with no restrictions on age and gender, the organisers recommend that participants be at least 16 years old.

Participants need to submit dance or vocal performance videos, along with an interview clip by 18 July 2024. All submissions, including the performance video, interview video, and application form, must be sent in a single email to [email protected].

The results of the regional preliminaries will be announced by 11 August 2024. However, winning the regional preliminary does not guarantee a spot in the main competition in Korea. The Embassy will forward the details of the regional winners to the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), which will decide which participants will advance to the main competition.

For those selected to participate in the main competition in Korea, the embassy has assured that airfare and accommodation expenses will be covered.
