The Korean wave, also known as Hallyu, has become an influential global phenomenon as we know it today. Our vision is to manage a friendly community of members sharing their love for Korean pop culture and promoting it to a larger audience.

WELCOME TO SOTON K-POP SOCIETY!

Soton K-pop is a student society at the University of Southampton focused on celebrating Korean pop culture. It was formed in 2020 by a handful of students though it wasn't made official until 2021, thanks to the efforts of the committee and the dance team who claimed the winning title of the "Shall We Dance" UK K-pop dance competition.

DANCE CLASSES

We provide weekly K-pop dance classes led by our in-house co-dance captains. Whether you're a beginner or not, you can learn your favourite dance routines from iconic K-pop groups in our weekly classes, including BTS, NCT, Blackpink, Twice, Red Velvet, and many others. There are also opportunities to take part in dance covers, challenges, and competitions as they come.

 

SOCIAL EVENTS

From general meet-ups to day-outs and night-outs, our social events are open for everyone looking to meet like-minded people. Get ready for an icebreaker event to kick off the academic year, followed by games and trivia nights, movie sessions, therapeutic photocard decorating with boba and ramen, winter gala ball and summer parties, and much more!
