As part of its ongoing K-Pop Cover Dance Festival, the Visit Korea Committee has released an aggregated figure of who have been the most popular K-Pop artists covered in dance by region.

According to its figures, from April 26 through July 10 a total of 1,350 teams have sent in submissions spanning six continents and 50 different nations.

By regions, the top five artists being covered were as follows:

Overall, SNSD, SHINee and SISTAR seemed to enjoy the most broad appeal among the different regions.

South America was overwhelmingly in favor of covering SM artists with 4Minute being the lone non-SM artist represented in the region.

Australia/Oceania went against the trend of most of the other regions as SNSD didn’t chart in its top five and SHINee barely made the top five while DBSK took the top ranking in its listing.

Africa indicated the most diverse ranking with Block B being the most popular artist to cover and 2PM making a showing in the top five as well.
