Puerto Rico celebrates their 1st Kpop Get-Together! [KPOP NEWS]

The Hallyu Wave has reached the caribbean!
It has now covered the enchanting island of Puerto Rico, where it has been spreading steadily infecting everybody with the Kpop love bug.

Around 45 fans got together to test the waters and meet, for the first time, their fellow Kpop friends, and since then the number of fans has been increasing and now there are around 300 kpop fans in the island of Puerto Rico.

The event began at 11am after having watched a variety of MVs and "mash-ups" from DJ Masa, with a video introduction of some of the members from the group "Puerto Rico Also Loves Kpop", telling us about themselves and talking about their favorite Kpop groups, Cassiopeia and E.L.F, were the most popular fandoms at the event, however, SHAWOLs (SHINee World), VIPs, Hottest, B2UTIES and many more made themselves known.

The most-awaited activity was the talent show, where several fans showed their singing and dancing abilities, and others danced from their seats, among the groups featured in the show were 2ne1, Super Junior, SHINee, f(x), Sunny Hill, Girl's Day, T-ARA, Big Bang, we sang along with 2AM, B2ST, and many more.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the dances that were featured in the event:

In the singing category, the songs that were presented were:
- A Goose Dream [Insooni, sung in the drama Dream High]
- Can't Let You Go, Even if I die [2AM]
- It Hurts [2ne1]
- Lonely [2ne1]

They had a trivia activity Oh, My School-style, in which the members' knowledge in dramas, music and dances were put to the test.

In the end, SUPER-SHINee-GENERATION team took home the gold, followed by BILASA! [in which I, Andie, was a member of ^^] and 3rd place was taken by the Keep Your Hands Up! team, it was a tough competition, and I'm sure we will be seeing a rematch soon.
