It was her shot at being on her way to become a K-pop star. And Miss Stephanie Koh, the Singaporean finalist of K-pop reality show Scoot: K-pop Star Hunt 3, didn’t win. But the 21-year-old said she was fine with it as long as Thai contestant, Miss Siriburee Chananan, 18, did not win.

The contest was won by Taiwanese Andy Su, 15, who also beat Malaysian Putri Norizah, 22, to bag the title.

Miss Koh, Miss Siriburee, Miss Putri and Su made it to the top four finalists of the competition, and they battled it out during the four-hour finale yesterday in front of a 1,000-strong crowd.

Su, who received the loudest cheers from the mostly teen audience, became the first male contestant to bag the title in this competition. In the past two seasons, the winners were female contestants from Thailand.

Here are some pictures of the contest.
