CFOS-led team is Pasundayag 2019 champ

The team led by the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (CFOS) won First Place in the recent Pasundayag contest, the first time in the competition history that was dominated by the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).

Pasundayag, a Bisaya term for stage presentation of songs dances, and other forms of expression, is one of the most-awaited events in celebration of the UP presence in Iloilo.

Considered to be the highlight of the celebration, the competition is participated in by the faculty and staff members of the University divided into five competing groups. Four groups are led by the four colleges in the University and one group from the central administration offices.

The concept for the Pasundayag varies yearly. Pasundayag 2019 revolved around the theme, “Baby boomer meets K-Pop.”

Eponymous to one of the famous K-Pop groups EXO, the CFOS-led team danced and warbled to the Korean-Chinese boy band’s moves and music including their fashion statements.

Clad in their K-Pop costumes, Team EXO also showed how popular K-Pop is among the Filipino youth who can’t stop loving them and are always looking forward to their fan meetings and concerts.
