If you have been reading my past post about KPOP a few weeks back, I posted about an online competition hosted by Starcall. STARCALL recently held their promotion call "Starcall Super Fan Contest" where winners will get the chance to have a trip to South Korea, I posted about it a few weeks ago and you can check it out here.

SK planet, a wholly owned subsidiary of SK telecom, a telecommunications provider based in South Korea, announced the results of its flagship contest, Starcall Super Fan. On the back of the recent launch of Starcall, a mobile application created exclusively for Korean pop fans, the company rolled out the contest to growing K-pop communities in Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines.

Starcall Super Fan challenged fan clubs from across the region to attest their loyalty for their favorite K-pop artists through a series of knowledge-based challenges about their favorite K-pop stars. While the contest was conceived and driven out of Singapore, it garnered more than 1,100,000 downloads of Starcall in the region.

Nino Albiola and Nadinne Manalo from the Philippines were both crowned as “Super Fans” and were each awarded a trip to Korea on winning the contest.

It has been the most exhilarating experience to have been a part of Starcall Super Fan. Not only did I enjoy the nail-biting challenges thrown at us, but also the opportunity to meet and interact with hundreds of K-pop fans just like me. I’m very excited to travel to Korea with my friend – it’s like a dream come true for any true fan!” said Nino Albiola from the Phillipines on winning the contest.

Mr. Song Kwang Su, Vice President, SK planet Global added, “It has been a highly engaging and interesting two weeks for K-pop communities across Southeast Asia, since the time we launched Starcall application. We received overwhelming participation in the Starcall Super Fan contest run of out of Singapore, which was our attempt to bind numerous fan communities together by their sheer love for K-pop.”

Starcall gives subscribers access to personal video calls in real time - straight from their favourite K-pop stars such as Girls' Generation (SNSD), Super Junior, SHINee, 2PM among others. Through the application, fans gain exclusive access to the world’s biggest K-Pop stars backstage at their concerts or even hanging out in their homes – so they can be a part of the stars off-screen daily lives. Starcall also allows its subscribers to record personal fan mail for the stars to read and respond to. Additionally, on Star Zone, fans are able to subscribe to their favourite stars’ feeds or comment on the K-pop stars’ fan pages. Fans can even interact directly with the world’s biggest K-pop stars through personal video fan mail.

To give you a more visual idea about the competition, Starcall provided with a nice infographic about the participating countries and about the two Pinoy winners of the competition who will be going to a trip to Korea!
