intense discussion amongst the judges, which included Singapore singer Derrick Hoh, Malaysian radio
announcer and Youtuber Dennis Yin, professional Dance Instructors Jojo Hung and the founder of
Asia's biggest Street Dance Festival Radikal Forze Jam, Felix Huang, who gave each team invaluable

When the emcee, Mediacorp Radio 987 deejay Sonia Chew, announced the arrival of EXO members
Suho, Chanyeol and Sehun, the atrium of Causeway Point went into a frenzy as fans (some who
started queueing since 12.30am) started to scream and clap for their favourite idols. Known for their
superior dance abilities, the dashing boys greeted their fans to deafening cheers of excitement as
they shared about themselves as well as their favourite footwear, Skechers D'Lites 2 Sweet Monster.
"It fits our style very well, so we wear it out quite often", said Chanyeol.
"The Skechers Sweet Monster K-pop Dance Competition was exhilarating. It was tough picking a
winner as they were all fantastic, but eventually Virus Ladies emerged victorious with their creative
choreography, which was a heavy component of the judging criteria. It was also heartwarming to see
EXO members, Sehun, Chanyeol and Suho, award prizes and words of encouragement to the teams",
