By  | 

Another Korean getting more famous for her dancing prowess is Dasuri Choi, who is a former trainee, back-up dancer and choreographer for many popular K-pop groups in South Korea.


After recently finishing as second-runner up in the Youre My Foreignay (foreigner + Pinay, the colloquial term for Filipino women) segment of Eat Bulaga, Dasuri has become a hot favorite on local television.

K-pop fans and non K-pop fans alike are continuously showing her love and support wherever she goes. She often graces the opening of the shows with her dancing skills to the tunes of Filipino novelty songs, pop and of course, K-pop.

Although she has stepped into the limelight in 2006 as a back-up dancer for many popular K-pop groups such as Brown Eyed Girls, KARA, Wonder Girls, 4Minute, T-Ara and Davichi, there is no stopping for Choi as she now graces the centre stage as the diva on the dance floor.

Her local TV appearances started when she became a member of G-FORCE, which is one of the country’s premier dance groups.  She also makes frequent guesting and showcases to various K-pop events held in the country.
