Last For One is a b-boy crew that formed in 1997. With their win in the 2005 Battle of the Year, they have been recognized as a worldwide known name and a contributor to the Korean wave, their fans respectively calling them the 'Dancing Taeguk Warriors.' They were heavily featured in the film Planet B-Boy, which documents the 2005 Battle of the Year. While most of the members were poor and some lived in extreme poverty in the Southern part of South Korea they had traveled to the capital of Seoul to compete in Battle of the Year otherwise known as BOTY. B-boy Joe currently heads the main wing while B-boy (Jusung) Lee and B-girl (Zaina Freeman)Zinny are regional members and compete in U.S. or international based events.
