At Asian fusion discotheque Neverland II recently, it looked like the Hallyu, or Korean pop music wave, had swept over to hubba-hubba land.

The show-stealers were a group of six leggy South Korean women, who could easily have passed for a professional K-pop girl group eyeing Girls' Generation's throne.

Never missing a beat, the six cutesy women who go by the name Viva Girls hip-swayed and twirled on stage in unison, singing renditions of popular K-pop numbers with harmonised vocals.

One of them, 25-year-old South Korean Rena Kwon, mesmerised the crowd as she belted out English love ballads by the likes of Alicia Keys and Adele.
