BENGALURU, India – September 13, 2022 – Samsung is celebrating the fourth anniversary of its iconic experience center, Samsung Opera House, which has become a hub of technology, art, and culture since it opened in 2018.
Over its anniversary weekend, Samsung Opera House organized a captivating K-fiesta, a Korean-pop-themed cultural and music festival where hundreds of young K-pop fans from across schools and colleges in Bengaluru, including Samsung Members, grooved to K-pop songs by Indian K-pop bands. The young audience enjoyed K-pop concert screenings, movie screenings, dance performances, a cosplay competition, and an exquisite Korean cuisine workshop.
The event at Samsung Opera House had a mini flea market with stalls like K-merch, K-food, K-beauty, and Hanbok (traditional Korean clothes) trial stalls. The two-day event saw over 5,000 Samsung and K-pop fans visit the iconic experience center.
Team IndHangul, a community that runs a platform for K-pop and K-drama fans in India, in partnership with Samsung Opera House also organized a talent hunt competition “Put Your Sneakers On” with three categories – Team Dance, Solo Dance, and Vocals, and multiple games for K-pop fans.
