Breaking is a new medal sport in the Olympics and the Asian Games. Kim Jong-ho, popularly known as B-boy Leon, will represent South Korea in the next Asian Games that will take place in 2022.
Kim won several international tournaments. As a result, he earned one of the four spots to represent the Asian Games. He said that getting the spot in the national breaking team is a memorable life event.
Kim is honored to be one of the country’s first national breakers. Also, he feels a strong sense of responsibility and duty as he participates in the international event wearing the country’s flag. The 28-year-old breaker started dancing in 2005. Three years later, he joined Fusion MC, one of South Korea’s breaking groups. In 2015, they were the top group in the world.
B-Boy Leon in the Asian Games
According to online casino Korea reports, breaking originated in New York City between the late 1960s and early 1970s. However, it became popular in Korea in the 2000s. Also, during that time, Korean dancers dominated world stages. In addition, they are known as some of the best dancers in the world. However, the popularity of breaking has slowly diminished since 2010.
Kim has been breaking for 17 years. According to gambling South Korea sources, he won various local and international tournaments, including the 2018 Bucheon B-boy International Championships and the 2018 Red Bull BC One Korea Cypher. Also, it was not the first time B-boy Leon represented the country in a competition. He was South Korea’s representative at the 2015 Red Bull BC One World Final. In addition, he won the Asia-Pacific final.
He couldn’t imagine breaking to be part of the Olympics and Asian Games, according to gambling reviews. However, he won the spot after participating in the Breaking Project Korea. Also, he won the final round even when he was suffering from a back injury.
