KPOP Camp In Korea? I’ll Let You Know!
Without a doubt, K-pop has now long become a global trend. Various fans from around the world love Korean singers and listen to their music. Even some of the fans come to their idols’ home country, Korea as they are curious about what it’s like to be in Korea.
Even more, there are many foreign fans who don’t just come to Korea for a trip but to make their dreams come true to become KPOP idols just like those whom they love and dream of. In line with this trend, many K-pop institutes in Korea have been gradually getting ready to greet foreign students.
KPOP Camp Programs with academy
The KPOP camp product that is actually being sold on our site is the one held with the cooperation of ‘OneBeat Academy’, which is known as the best vocal/dance academy in Korea.
Process of the KPOP camp
And I’m the content creative manager of HaB Korea, Kwon, who will be the coordinator to help you throughout the whole process of the KPOP camp if you join. For example, if you don’t understand Korean, I’ll be your translator (Actually, for vocal class, teachers might need the translator, so I’ll be there with you lol), and if you can’t find the way to the academy from the guesthouse, I’ll pick you up and take you to the right place.
You can apply for the camp at the time you want and you can decide how long you want to stay. Besides the options on our site(4-week-program is the most popular one), if you have any other option in your mind, I’ll do my best to help you with the arrangement with the academy.
Various KPOP camp programs
I’ll tell you roughly what happens when you make a reservation for a 1-week-long camp on our website. If you book a one-week camp, you will be assigned the timetable basically that fits trainers’ schedules, first. Of course, we will make it suit your convenience after then, as well.
You will have 3 vocal lessons and 3 dance lessons during your one-week camp, and you will have an additional chance to record the song you learned during the vocal lessons in the recording booth just like the singers do. It would be so cool to hear your song on a recorded file. Also, having your song in a legit file like that makes it really easy to apply for an audition online later on.
Kara’s KPOP camp experiences
This lovely, beautiful yet has so much passion 22-year-old girl is an artist named KARA from Australia. Despite her, more than 10 years of dance and singing experience, her interest in K-pop has recently grown, so she joined HaB Korea K-POP camp to learn K-pop in Korea, the home of K-pop.
I’ve been with her since the first day of her class at the Sandfactory Academy, and I couldn’t even think that I was working when I was with her. I’ve been truly moved by her warmth, passion and above all, her shining talent.
I was not the only one who was impressed by her talent and passion. Teachers at the academy also marveled at her talent. She got improved so fast in such a short period of time, 2 weeks. Feeling two weeks and 12 classes short, she actually extended one week to add six more classes.
If you participate in the camp, you can rent an academy studio and practice every day during the time when there is no class. Kara rented a studio for three hours almost every day.
She practiced in a room for dance class so that she could practice both dancing and singing. Sometimes I joined her practice to help her with the pronunciation of Korean songs. The hardest thing for foreign trainees might be the correct Korean pronunciation when singing.
Korean is, for sure, difficult, but it’s even harder when singing, I guess. It’s impossible for foreigners to sing perfectly in Korean, but to take auditions in Korea, you are required to sing in Korean somewhat fluently. And my mission was to help Kara to go beyond the limit, and she surprisingly did a great job. (She memorized the Korean lyrics of “Feel Special” in a week. Can you believe that?)
KPOP Audition during your camp
During the camp, you might get a chance for auditioning because some of the entertainment companies visit the academy for auditions. Actually, Kara participated in one held in the academy, but she wanted to apply for SM audition.
SM holds a public audition every Saturday, so we went together on Saturday! I waited for her outside because only people who attended the audition could enter the building, but Kara said that it was really a fun experience to do!
Extra activity during the KPOP camp
Then, we went to ‘Yujung Sikdang’ for lunch which is now a super famous place among ARMY. I don’t need to write how delicious pork would be after a tiring audition, right? And she even got the photo cards of J-Hope, her bias. Yay for Kara haha!
The day after the audition was actually my birthday. This sweetest and kind Australian girl gave me a kangaroo doll and various Australian souvenirs as a birthday present.
I was so touched once again by her warm heart. I sincerely hope that she also felt the happiness I felt with her in Korea and that this camp helped her career, and gave her great memory in Korea.
