One of the reasons I love KPOP is for its fun and cool choreography!
Do we have any bands in Western pop that dance? Am I showing my age???? I came from the land of BSB and Nsync ok?
Now this list in not exhaustive! But here are just a few of my favourite Kpop dances.
BTS – FIRE
It’s hard to pick one dance as BTS have a great ‘dance’ography (I made a word up ok?!?). The one song that’s caught my eye is ‘Fire.’
The dance break at 3.32 is insane! I don’t really understand how they can move like that. What the heck are they doing with their feet?
Shinee – Sherlock
I saw this video before I was a fan of Shinee and was instantly struck their ‘fanning’ out dance. Seeing this live was something else! I just need to see them as 5.
Bigbang – Fantastic Baby
Technically, this is not the most complicated dance! But when I saw this video, I knew I HAD to see this live. It really makes you want to party.
SNSD – Gee
Come on, don’t tell me you didn’t immediately go and learn this dance after you heard it! Pabo.
Super Junior – Spy
Super Junior has loads of great dances (including Sorry, Sorry! but I thought I’d pick other ones). One of my favourites is Spy. The first time I saw the dance was at the concert. It was fun, inventive and sexy without being too in yer face!
Infinite – The Chaser
Infinite have got to be one of the cleanest dancers you’ll ever see. I’ve never seen a band so in sync!
One a random note, I always forget there are 7 people in this band and get surprised when I see their line up. I always think there are 5! Anyway you can’t go wrong with Infinite.
Hyuna – Bubble Pop
People are pretty judgemental about the original Bubble Pop video because Hyuna is wearing skimpy clothes. Whatever ‘they’ say, I still think it’s a great song and dance!
If you need convincing, watch her dance it wearing a big baggy sweater. She kills it.
Wonder Girls – Be My Baby
We don’t always have to be super cool and edgy. I know the Wonder Girls are pursuing new things but sometimes, I would kind of love them to revisit this concept. ‘Be My Baby’ is so cute and probably the most literal dance I’ve seen in KPOP! It’s simple but hey, it works.
I know there’s a whole load of other artists I’m missing! I haven’t even got to 2NE1 and Sistar! So I guess I’ll save that for another post!
