1.Subject of the contest: SeeU
The first Korean Vocaloid character, SeeU(SV01 SeeU), is a virtual idol singer developed by SBSArtech. With deep blue eyes, long wavy blond hair, a small body with fair, smooth skin, etc., she is overall in the shape of a cute and lively, yet mysterious looking 17 year old girl. We increased SeeU’s charm by adding various accessories such as the cute cat-ear shaped speakers, the sound waves that appear on her top and her shoes, a lively costume designed with school uniforms in mind, a power button on the front and a pause button on the back. Already loved by not only Korea but also the Vocaloid fans of the world, she is recreated through hundreds of illustration and UGC(User Generated Content) every day from the day her character was revealed.
