An exciting chance to perform on stage with iKON, KARD and LIMELIGHT!

We are looking for K-Community who will participate

in 2023 K-Community Challenge.

Never miss this opportunity to be a winner and get invited to Korea with all costs of flight, accommodation, and tour covered!



K-Community Challenge is a video challenge that allows participants to learn Korean culture online, create a video and share it.

Learn Korean culture through official videos in three genres.

Choose a genre to perform in and create an awesome performance video of your own.

You may replicate the official video or create a unique video using Korean culture or your country’s culture.



  • ‘Taekwonmu’ is a Korean performing art that combines the poomsae and dance of Taekwondo, Korea's unique martial art.

  • This creative performance is formed by seamlessly connecting the disciplined movements of martial arts with the graceful and flexible movements of the dance. You can watch the tutorial and guide video on KCF's official YouTube channel to learn and get inspired for your own performance videos.

  • By clicking on the music note icon at the top, you can download the official sound source of “iKON”’s song <U>.

  • Feel free to incorporate traditional dances from your country into your Taekwonmu videos or use traditional Korean costumes and K-cultural props to add a unique touch.
