Wang Ziyi, 22, is not a full-time dance blogger but has over 40,000 followers on Bilibili. What sets her apart from other dancers is that her dance covers are mostly parody versions — sometimes in a mermaid costume or a bird mask, while at other times, they feature entirely new choreography.

"I often come up with these weird and funny ideas, and it's very fulfilling to turn them into videos," Wang said. "When I see comments that say my videos made them laugh, I feel like I've passed on my energy and happiness to the other side of the screen."

Even idols create their own dance covers. For example, BOY STORY member Yu Zeyu, 17, mentioned that they often film dance covers to provide more content and showcase different styles for their fans. "It's also because we have our own choreographers," he explained. "But we only cover music and choreography that we like, just like everybody else."
