Milae3 Fringe Stage Review
Comprised of YouTube dancers, Kniga004, xAnniex2810 and NitsuGatcha, Milae3 – stylised in Hangul as 미래3 – are a somewhat unique entity amongst the constantly developing scene due to their focus upon K-pop covers.  Appearing on stage in matching cut-off jeans, pink plimsolls and on-trend DORK t-shirts, the most striking aspect of Milae3‘s performance is the intensity of their dancing.

Kpop: Same Title, Different Sound

Kpop: Same Title, Different Sound
