This event was held to show to YG Entertainment artists that they are loved here and there is a big demand for YG artists here in Malaysia,
Halo! YG Day, was a fun filled day for fans as they saw the top 10 dance crews and solo acts perform to their favourite YG Family stars’ music in a dance competition. Fans also got a chance to take part in various pop quizzes and won vouchers from Daorae Korean Restaurant plus personalized greeting cards from SE7EN, 2NE1 and BIGBANG members.
The best dance crew as voted by high-calibre judges Lucy Leong, operations director of Red.fm; SuAnne Chong, official k-pop dance instructor for KTO and backup dancer to K-pop stars; and Nikki Cheang, veteran dance judge; were the dance crew Ruffneckz.
