With young girls and boys screaming their hearts out and singing along to popular Korean songs, some would think that there was a K-pop concert in progress. They weren’t entirely wrong. It was actually a K-Pop Dance Cover Competition that caused the excitement at Ipoh Parade last Sunday afternoon.

The contest attracted 16 dance crews. Participants were required to perform a K-Pop dance routine to the music of one K-Pop group, exactly like how it is performed in the song’s music video.

With RM9,000 in cash and prizes to be won by the top three teams, competition was extremely keen, with each of the sixteen crew burning the dance floor with their routine, trying to outdo one another.

This K-Pop Dance Cover Competition, Ipoh Parade’s first-ever and which was part of the larger 12-day K-Street Carnival, was unlike other dance contests as judges were looking for mimicry, rather than individuality and creativity.

The three judges, Yoro Ng, Dayana Anith and Charlotte, had quite a tough task in hand but at the end of the day, there could only be one outright winning crew and it was none other than Virus Ladies from Kuala Lumpur. The all-female crew had danced to Dream Catcher’s hit Chase Me, followed by Goodnight. The seven members shared out the prize money of RM5,000.
