World Cup fever has taken hold in the Korean entertainment industry, driving many stars to appear on soccer-related programs and sing songs in support of the national team.
Sistar’s Hyorin performed Brazil’s all-time favorite dance, the samba, attracting half a million views on YouTube.
During “Idol’s Futsal Soccer Competition,” which aired on Thursday, K-pop girl groups fought their way to the stage to cheer. Four teams flaunted their cheerleading skills, adding variety and color to the World Cup spirit.
