The Seoul Metropolitan Government will host the third anniversary contest of the monthly National Teenage B-Boy Battle Competition, ‘A Friday Night’ (A.F.N.), at Gyeonghuigung Palace in Jongno-gu, Seoul from 6 pm on April 29.
A.F.N. has been held with the participation of B-boy groups from around the country on Friday evening every fourth week of the month since 2008. The third anniversary contest of the monthly National Teenage B-Boy Battle Competition will offer plenty of things to see and enjoy by incorporating B-boy dance culture into the beautiful scenery and serene mood of the old palace.
A.F.N. is helping to promote Korea’s B-boy culture to a wider audience as the competition has not only attracted more than 40 B-boy dancing teams from all over Korea but also B-boy clubs from the U.S.A., Japan and Canada.
To celebrate the third anniversary of the competition, the House Unit, a five-member project team of Korea’s best house dancers, and the Punkies, the female rocking dance duo that won the second prize in Japan’s largest dance contest, Dance Delight, will take part as special guests in the contest.
B-boys can apply for the contest at the Nowon Youth Center’s Internet broadcasting station (www.attii.net), which will receive applications on a first come, first served basis. Anyone can attend the contest, free of charge. For further information on the contest, please contact the Nowon Youth Center’s Teenager Team at +82-2-3391-4141 (Extension 171~174)
