In an exciting dance and vocal competition between 22 teams and solo performers Juchy from Mizoram won the first prize for vocal category, while 'We Are Family Crew' from Delhi took home the top prize in dance category.
The winners will now travel to South Korea for the K-Pop World Festival Final on October 5.
"It's time to say that K-wave and K-pop
finally arrived in India after a long time of insignificant presence. We will witness the strong and enthusiastic fandom of K-pop in India, which will surprise Korean people as well," Kim Kum-pyoung, the director of Korean Cultural Centre India, said.
The first runner-up in the vocal category was Sruthi Ramnarayan from Chennai and in the dance category the award went to 'Elixir Crew' from Mumbai.
Jemimah Raphel from Bengaluru and 'Harmonic Boys' from Mizoram won the third prize in vocal and dance categories, respectively.
The competition was judged by famous Korean boy band Snuper.
In previous years too, Indian participants have marked their presence at the K-Pop World Festival Final.
Vocalist Priyanka Mazumdar won the third prize in 2016 and dance team 'Immortal Army' won second prize in 2017 at the international stage.
Earlier in the day, the Korean President also highlighted India's contribution to the world through Bollywood, Yoga, Nobel Laureates and meditation, observing that his daughter was a Yoga instructor and movies like 'Haathi Mere Saathi', 'Three Idiots' and 'Dangal' have garnered huge popularity in Korea.
