A K-POP Cover Competition’ took place in Taipei, where participants tried to mimic the dance moves of Korean pop singers in order to win air tickets to Seoul. The contest drew keen attention from hallyu fans there.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government held a “Hallyu Cover Competition,” as a pre-event to the Girls’ Generation Concert held at the Taipei Arena for three days starting on September 10, and selected three teams of Taiwanese people as prizewinners.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government hosted the Cover Competition for the first time. A total of 36 teams submitted applications via online, and uploaded their video clips on Seoul Metropolitan Government’s YouTube channel for one week. A final twelve were singled out from the participating teams through review based on the number of views and recommendations.
“Knight,” a nine-member mixed gender band, won the top prize by performing dance to the tune of “Shiny’s” ‘Lucifer’ and “Super Juniors” ‘Mr. Simple.’ All members from the winning team were given air tickets linking Taipei and Seoul, courtesy of Korean Air.
