The Middle East will hold its first ever K-pop singing contest later this month. The Korean Embassy in Egypt says it will hold the contest in Cairo on July 28, giving fans the opportunity to express their love for Korean pop.
The embassy added that since a large number of people want to participate, it will hold a preliminary round next Monday to pick the top 15 teams for the official competition. The event is aimed at promoting Korean culture in Egypt and throughout the Middle East.
An embassy official said if the competition goes well, there will be similar events in other Arab countries.
