UFOPOP 12

UFOPOP 12

Instead of bringing forth six countries that didn’t participate in UP 11, the 12th edition switched gears into a new concept altogether. All entries were Korean, and instead of countries or ”countries”, the six teams were different genres.

In contrast with UP 11, where the classical-inspired Korean entry didn’t do particularly well, the classical genre took a convincing win this time.
