To spread positivity and cheer during this lockdown, Consulate General of the Republic of Korea has come up with an online dance contest.
As part of the contest, the consulate based in Mylapore encourages people to dance for a Korean pop (K-pop) music or Korean nursery rhymes and upload their videos to YouTube. Later, the YouTube video link may be shared to the consulate as a comment to its Facebook post- https://www.facebook.com/201664616688737/posts/1401632910025229/
