The five-member Turns dance team became the final winner of Mnet’s “Street Dance Girls Fighter” dance competition on Tuesday, taking the first honor with 10 million won ($ 8,350) in prize money.

“Street Dance Girls Fighter,” which premiered in November as a spin-off of cable network hit “Street Woman Fighter”, captivated viewers by showcasing dance moves from passionate and talented high school students.

The six finalists – Newnion, Floor, Mismolly, Turns, Brand New Child and KLWC – delivered their final performances. The winner was determined by the scores of the viewers’ live vote (40%), the scores from previous missions (30%) and the average scores of the judges in the first and second rounds of the final day (30%).

For the first round of their final performances, each team performed a song that had been newly produced. Newnion and Floor performed for Itzy’s “Weapon”, while Mismolly and Turns showed off their powerful moves for Mamamoo’s Solar and Moonbyul’s “Bada Boom”. KLWC and Brand New Child performed on Jeon So-yeon’s “Fire”. The finalists took turns and freely showed their creative and splendid performances at what they had prepared for the second round.

All six episodes of “Street Dance Girls Fighter” ended with a record 2.3% audience rating nationwide, according to Nielsen Korea on Wednesday. The show’s first episode scored 1.9% viewership, according to the data.
