A brand new society in 2017/18 (and winners of the Best New Society Award), the Kpop society welcomes kpop and drama fans old and new as we prepare for an even more exciting second year in 2018/19!
We hold weekly activities and regular socials for people to meet like minded fans, and these are a gret way to meet new concert buddies. We also put on dance classes for everyone, whether you want to perform, compete or just dance for fun!
Some of our weekly sessions include quizzes, kdrama and film nights, and chill sessions where we just chat and order some great food.
Our socials so far have included trips to Soju Korean BBQ in Reading and a Kpop club night in London!
We hold weekly dance classes which are open to everyone, where we learn a different kpop choreography each time. We also have competitive dance teams which competed in the Inter University Kpop Cover Competition in Surrey, and performed in three dance shows at the university throughout 2017/18. We did amazingly at the Surrey competition, placing 2nd overall nationally and taking home trophies in all 3 categories: 1st in Vocal and Rap, 2nd in Girl Group and 3rd in Boy Group!!
We are excited to announce that in December 2018 we will be hosting a national Kpop dance competition for university teams from all across the country!!
Come and join the friendliest society on campus and share your love of Kpop!
