The event will run until September 21, with total prizes worth over 100 million VND (4,400 USD).

The organiser said the event is aimed at bringing joy and positive energy to the public during social distancing in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Viet Nam.

KTO Chief Representative in Viet Nam Park Jong-sun voiced his hope that Viet Nam will soon bring COVID-19 under control and the RoK can welcome Vietnamese tourists in the coming time.

The dance contest has attracted thousands of entries of young people across Viet Nam and more than 250 million views on Tiktok.

K-pop sensation ITZY has been named honorary ambassador of the KTO since 2020.

The KTO Vietnam Office is set to arrange various virtual events in this year’s fourth quarter.
