The School of Performing Arts Seoul (SOPA) recently had a mini concert or a performance at Dataran Pahlawan Malacca (Malaysia). It was a 1 hour 30 minutes long performance by some of their students.
The performances included dancing, b-boying and singing. Most of them were KPOP songs but some were English songs including those Duffy (Mercy) and Whitney Houston.
For those who do not know, SOPA is an arts high school in Seoul (South Korea) and many of the famous idol groups have members who graduated from this school.
Some of the popular idols from the school includes Suzy (Miss A), Eunha (GFriend), Kai (EXO), Joy and Seulgi (Red Velvet), Lee Hi, Ji Hoon (Wanna One), Ha-young, Nam Joo and Na-eun (Apink) and so many others. You can check the wiki on this.
As it was held on a Tuesday night (weekday), there wasn’t much of a crowd. If it was on a weekend it would have been a different story.

Pardon the blurry photos. They were taken from a long distance with a zoom lens (300mm) and my hand shook a lot.

The performance by SOPA was indeed great and they’re definitely talented in singing and dancing.
