After analyzing participants’ dance cover from 4/26 to 7/10, Visit Korea Year has announced the top 5 role models for cover dance groups on July 10th. Participants from more than 50 countries in 6 continents worldwide have registered for this event. Out of the 1350 groups registered, 155 teams covered Girls’ Generation’s choreography, putting the girls in the no.1 spot. SHINee was ranked second with 98 teams, Miss A came in third with 79 teams, Sistar in 4th with 75 teams, while 2NE1 took the 5th spot with 70 teams.
Girls’ Generation and SHINee are favorites among the participants from Asia, Europe, North and South America. TVXQ took first in Oceania and while Block B seems to be Africa’s favorite group. In addition, Sistar’s rising popularity despite not having any promotional activities outside Korea is garnering a lot of attention.
On the other hand, teams that have passed the preliminary round will be competing at the ‘Visit Korea Year 2012 K-Pop Cover Dance Festival’ (http://www.coverdance.org)
