2017 PINOY K-POP STAR
Contest Guidelines

I. OVERVIEW
The 2017 Pinoy K-pop Star is the Philippine finals for the 2017 K-POP World Festival in
Changwon which will be held on September 19-October 1, 2017 at Changwon, South
Korea. This competition will have two categories—the VOCAL CATEGORY, which is
basically a singing competition, and the PERFORMANCE CATEGORY, which is both a
SINGING and DANCING competition with focus on the overall performance of the group
rather than just the singing or dancing quality of the contestant.

The grand prize winners of these two categories will be the Philippines’ representative to
the first round of semi-finals of the K-pop World Festival which will first be held online. If
the Philippine representatives qualify for the grand finals in Korea, that’s the only time
they will fly to Korea to join the live competition.
