Fever Seoul Competition

Fever Seoul was an online bboy and bgirl competition organized by Seoul City Government to spread a worldwide appreciation for the bboy culture in Seoul. While the competition is over, I still wanted to shed light on it. In September, participants sent in their videos for a chance to battle against Korean bboys Bruce Lee, Pocket, Vero, Skim, Rookie, and Jay Park. After a couple of rounds and call-outs by youtube submissions, they chose the top 6 international finalists to fly out to Seoul to battle against the top 6 Korean breakers. Repping the international top 6 are: Redo (Holland), Atomic Goofball (USA), Yoriyas (Africa), Drama (Italy), Aranha (Brazil), and Victor Kim (USA). So check out submissions and the videos below…

This is the video showing the first round of the Korean bboys calling out all bboys/bgirls to battle for a spot in the competition…

Next is the video where they chose the top 15 from Round 1

Submissions Round 1 went to Atomic Goofball, Victor Kim, Aranha, and Yoriyas. And the final two spots from Round 2 were filled by Drama and Redo. Below are links to go see the submission videos from each worldwide bboy… what got them into the Fever Seoul competition:
