The application for the ASIAN BEAT Online 5 Cast Orientation has started.
ASIAN BEAT Online program has released in 2021 and next will be 5th times. We are called “ABO” which is the initial sounds of ASIAN BEAT Online. Its total participants are over 100 people from 15 countries so far.
Beyond words and beyond distance, this is an exciting program where participants (casts) with Asian roots get together online and get to know each other through talks, games, songs and dances.
Diverse people gather in the program, then we accept and help each other’s differences. It is very warm exchanges.
These days, going abroad is getting easier after the pandemic, the exchanges over countries get more active. Now is possible to meet in person, so how about finding friends you want to meet through this program? How about finding a country/area you want to go?
Online program can be a first step to communicate with people in Asia, near each other!
First thing’s first. Please apply the cast orientation to know more details.
In the program, the Most important thing is to enjoy the moment together. We won’t ask you the skills of English, dancing, singing, and experience an online program. Just try and jump in this program. We are very welcome you.
