The BIGBANG contest is the culmination of a number of K-pop events and activities organised by Hotlink over the past few months. In addition to bringing the hottest K-pop acts such as Taeyang and Royal Pirates to Malaysia, Hotlink also recently introduced its own K-Pop Academy, where five big K-pop fans were chosen to become Hotlink’s very own ‘ambassadors of K-pop’.

During their time at the academy, the fans were groomed and transformed into their favourite K-pop superstar, where they were given singing and dance lessons and a makeover to look like their K-pop idol. Their experiences in the academy were documented as part of a web series which can be seen on Hotlink’s YouTube channel. All five talents then starred in Hotlink’s very own K-pop music video as a tribute to BIGBANG, where each of them took on the role of a BIGBANG member and re-enacted the band’s popular hit ‘Fantastic Baby’, but with a Malaysian twist. The video can be viewed here at Hotlink’s Facebook page:
