DTU Students Win People’s Choice Award at the K-pop Festival

The 2020 K-pop Cover Video Contest for residents of Da Nang, Thua Thien - Hue, Quang Nam and Quang Ngai was launched by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Danang two months ago and just ended. Two students from the DTU Faculty of Korean Language, Dinh Gia Han and Nguyen Trong Phung, won the People’s Choice Prize with a beautiful song entitled “This Love”, from the “Descendants of the Sun” soundtrack.

Contestants display their love for K-pop through videos posted on social media platforms such as Facebook, with the #KPOPFESTIVAL #DANANG #HUE #QUANGNAM #QUANGNGAI.

“This Love” was ranked as one of the Best Korean Drama OSTs. The People’s Choice award is 60% based on a jury evaluation and 40% on public likes and shares. The DTU students received 500 likes from viewers, and 300 shares and many positive comments from the online community.

Dinh Gia Han said: “This Love” fully expresses the romance between the characters featured in Descendants of the Sun. Although we are both still freshmen, we had to spend much time learning the words, their pronunciation and the music. However, our teachers from the Korean Language Faculty ably assisted us during rehearsals and will motivate us to nurture our love for the Korean language and study harder in future.”
