Hello, we are SoNE1!
SoNE1 is the first and only K-pop dance cover crew based at UC Davis. Since its inception in 2012, SoNE1 has aimed to showcase the diversity of the K-pop genre. SoNE1 wishes to entertain all its audiences, whether or not they are familiar with K-pop. Some notable performances include Korean Heritage Night by the San Francisco Giants and KCON USA in Los Angeles.
In addition to live performances, SoNE1 maintains its eponymous YouTube channel that began the summer of 2014. Since then, SoNE1 has slowly begun to form a subscriber fan base. Now reaching the 5000 subscriber milestone, SoNE1 hopes to continue to expand the channel and to spread their love of K-pop. Some popular cover videos include Big Bang’s “Bang Bang Bang,” Girls’ Generation’s “You Think” and also Red Velvet’s “Be Natural”.
Although SoNE1 has undergone many changes within the past years, the directors have always emphasized the importance of teamwork and support. They are a family, not just friends and peers. SoNE1 began and continues to be a completely student run effort. Because of these circumstances, the SoNE1 family functions through trust and dedication.
If you are a UC Davis student, or even a K-pop fan in the Sacramento area, you are more than welcome to attend SoNE1’s open workshops. Times and locations are always announced on their Facebook page. If you wish to become part of the family, performance auditions will also be announced on their Facebook page. No dance experience is required, SoNE1 just asks that you have an open mind and the promise to improve yourself.
As a subsidiary of So K-pop, SoNE1 is committed to uniting the K-pop dance community in a positive way. Therefore, if they ever perform at an event near you, come support and do not hesitate to approach the team! A director will always be present and will be more than willing to speak with you. Alternatively, please feel free to contact the SoNE1 Directors via email (email@example.com) or through Facebook. Any questions or comments are welcomed.
