K-Pop till you drop this weekend

If like me, your one and only dance move consist of looking like an agitated monkey, why not take up some dance lessons at the DanceSports Lab? Suitable for all ages, every session comprises of four lessons which focuses on one type of dance. Pick any lesson that you like and dance your way out of looking like an awkward monkey on the dance floor.

The wildly popular Sundown Festival is back again for its fourth year running, featuring the most sought-after singers and bands from Japan, Korea, Taiwan and now Hong Kong and China. Expect to see acts like  Alice Nine, BTOB and Raymond Lam among others.

More K-Pop madness happens at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this weekend with girl group 2NE1’s Singapore leg of their New Evolution Global Tour. These sassy lasses were recently in town to give us a glimpse of their concert this weekend and from what we witnessed that evening, this concert is going to be mad.

Get ready to hop around ‘Gangnam’-style, all you so-called emotionless Singaporeans. Psy, the South Korean superstar, will be in town this Saturday for a one-night, one-hour-only free showcase to thank his fans at the Marina Bay Sands’ Event Plaza. Tickets are all snapped up but we figure you could drop by to do some of your own ‘Gangnam’-style dancing nearby or catch a glimpse of his entourage.
