Each year here at Michigan State, the Korean Student Organization puts on the Grand River Gayoje. Roughly meaning “song festival,” the Gayoje is a sort of talent show for local students to show off their musical talent, and a chance for the local community to enjoy some Korean pop culture. Performances range from the hottest K-pop dance hits to heartfelt ballads, and the KSO members themselves usually provide some entertainment as well.
This year’s Gayoje will be at the Pasant Theatre at the Wharton Center and is on Saturday, April 7th, 2012. Our very own Asian Invasion host Danny will be performing again, and I can’t wait to see his performance! Tune into the Asian Invasion tonight from 8 – 10 PM for your chance to win tickets to the Gayoje!
