Ruffneck’z, a dance crew that needs no introduction in the local Kpop scene, picked up the Grand Prize at Halo! YG Day, a celebration of South Korea’s YG Entertainment Family of stars.
The dance competition, which was held at One Utama on June 25, saw dance crews and solo acts perform to their favorite YG Entertainment artist’s music.
Ruffneck’z wow-ed the crowd – and judges – at the event with the “guitar-smashing” antics that were incorporated into their routine.
As the grand prize winners, the crew walked away with two tickets worth SGD318 each to watch BIGBANG and 2NE1 live in Singapore in July. On top of that, they also received RM2,000 in cash, a Halo Music hamper and Daorae Korean Restaurant vouchers.
Runner ups were crowd favorite Chrome L and twin duo cUrFs.
Judges for the dance competition were Lucy Leong, operations director of Red.fm; SuAnne Chong, dance instructor for Korea Tourism Organization and backup dancer for Kpop stars and Nikki Cheang, veteran dance judge.
Kpop fans who turned up for the event were also given the opportunity to send written and video messages to their favorite YG artist. Over 400 fans turned up for the event, which is a collaboration between Halo Music Malaysia and YG Entertainment, and supported by DiGi Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd.
