Pop it, lock it, break it

Funny you should blog about B-boying Orchid cuz South Korea's top-notch B-boy team Gambler finished with 2nd place at the World Freestyle Session which was held last month in Los Angeles, U.S. of A, the country where b-boying and pop locking originated from. Woo hoo! Gambler has been invited to perform at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. These boys got SKiLLzZ yo!

Freestyling to 2nd place!

Gambler also performed yesterday for the KB B-boy World Class Masters competition at the Olympic Hall in Seoul showing off their best moves. Top-class B-boyers from all over the world and pop stars Lee Hyo-ri and Poppin' Hyun-joon were also present at this event.

What's the difference between b-boying and pop locking?

They're both different styles of urban dances.

Pop locking are those 'robot' type moves and break dancing is the one that's more acrobatic.

Check out these videos, out these videos and you'll get it.
