HallyuPopFest, Southeast Asia’s biggest K-pop festival, kicked off with a spectacular start as fans watched their favourite stars walk the red carpet.

The festival spans from May 25-26, and 15 acts will be at the festival’s sophomore edition, including headliners Super Junior and Winner. The all-day affair includes performances divided between the afternoon and the evening, appearances on the red carpet, and food and activities at HallyuTown which showcases everything Korean.

Despite the scorching heat and immense crowds, fans came down and showed their support for their idols at the red carpet.

Here's footage of the acts fresh off the carpet:

Day One

GWSN

The seven girl group GWSN were the first to rock the carpet after a long wait for many fans. They sang, danced and answered questions about their visit to Singapore.

A.C.E.

Unfortunately, A.C.E.'s agency announced on May 25 that group member Wow would not be able to attend HallyuPopFest due to unforeseen circumstances. This did not stop the other 4 members from rocking the carpet in style as usual, anyways.
