Kotae-Pop competitions feature three different competition series.
The competitions include the K-pop Solo individual competition, the K-pop Group group competition, and the Jokeri series, where the background music is something other than K-pop! In the Jokeri series, several dance styles may also be seen. The goal of each series is to create a cover of the selected original work as accurate as possible in terms of choreography and atmosphere.
