    Are there any upcoming events based on Kpop like singing Kpop or in Korean and gigs? If there are any, would you mind notifying me because I would be more than honoured if I get a chance to participate in them.

      Dear Kushal, thank you for your comment. The performers listed below are the only ones that are publicly confirmed. We have not been informed about any other one. If you wish to find out about Korean indie singers, you might want to attend the KCCUK’s upcoming “K-Indie Rock Showcase” on May 19.
