The 2012 K-pop Cover Dance Festival will travel around various countries and cities to begin their round 2 auditions to choose to finalists starting Sept 22. More than 1800 video applications were received from more than 70 countries. From this we can see that K-pop's popularity around the globe is increasing. Recently, I have seen a documentary about K-pop, where youths around the globe are mesmerized with K-pop dances and songs, and people taking interest in Korean food. K-pop is inducing people from different cultures and backgrounds to not only learn about Korea's culture as well, but also to share their culture with others.
