Hi guys! 😀
Welcome back to my blog after less frequent posting! :3 I do apologize for that, but I’ll make up for it with this one! I’ve been having trouble thinking of what types of things to talk about, and I didn’t wan’t to have a list on songs, because I’m already thinking of doing a Top Favorite K-Pop Songs list soon (so look forward to that! :D). That is why I’ve decided to talk about something a little different, so here it is! This post is my Top 5 Dances from K-Pop! 🙂
A little disclaimer before we start! I am, by no means, a professional dancer of any sort, and I am not claiming to be one! These are just some of the dances I personally think are unique, creative, or just a lot of fun! I’m pretty sure I’ll forget some (What can I say? I have the memory of a goldfish :3), but I’ll make more as I remember them if you guys like this first one! With that out of the way, let’s get started!
Sherlock – SHINee: The first time I saw the music video, I was in love. :3 SHINee has awesome dance routines for almost all of their releases, but I’ve chosen this one to include here. It’s so well coordinated and so so so creative! It’s so much fun to watch! I was very much impressed with this song, and the dance, on top of that, just made the performance much more captivating, not to mention that it’s really well synched and appropriate to the song. This dance version of their music video shows how great the dance is, so do check it out if you have not already.
Growl – Exo: This might be another obvious choice after Sherlock, but I think it deserves this spot! 🙂 Not only is this dance routine awesome, but I love the dance exchange between the two different “units”, and by this I mean Exo-M and Exo-K, during the dance. I think the fact that there are so many members in Exo makes it so that the routine looks even more complete and enticing. It’s a powerful dance and they make it look so coordinated, despite what I’ve mentioned before about them having so many members. I really like this dance practice video (pretty awesome because of the movement of the camera along with the routine, I think) so it’s definitely worth a watch.
Fiction – Beast: Although I really want to talk about this awesome song, that is for another day since we’ll be talking about the awesome choreography today. The choreography practice video I linked to actually includes their routine for their song The Fact too, but Fiction comes a little bit after (starting at around 2:18). 🙂 What I love about this choreography is the feet shuffling thing (so eloquent right :P) that comes at the chorus part of the song. I love it every time I see it haha 😛 But overall, the dance is awesome! Obviously, there might be many other songs that have more “complicated” or intricate choreography, but it’s one that stands out in my memory! I remember I was so obsessed with it when it came out. :3 I can’t believe it’s already been 3 years! :O But anyways, the video is pretty cool too, so check it out, especially because they teach you how to do the step thing I was talking about at the end haha!
Nobody – Wonder Girls: Wow, the memories come up even just by hearing the title of this song. I said that Fiction was old, but Nobody is from 2008! :O Well, I was considering whether or not to put this song, or Tell Me, but Nobody takes this spot for today! 🙂 Now, this is probably one of the more unexpected choices, but hear me out, because I do have a reason for this! This song, and dance, was so popular when it was released and I definitely understand why. I personally really like this dance! It’s so simple, yet so addicting and I can’t help wanting to copy it! Of course, I do agree that it probably isn’t the most detailed, sophisticated dance, but just the sheer simplicity yet catchiness of the dance are enough to make it one of my top choices. The music video is hilarious and a lot of fun, too! 😛 Seriously though, kudos to you JYP! Straight up nostalgia from this song and dance, you guys. :3
1004 – B.A.P: Again, I had a little bit of hesitation when deciding which B.A.P dance I wanted to talk about (since they have so many awesome ones), but I chose 1004 their most recent release! The reason for this choice is because of the super cool solo dances (what, is this even a thing?) by Jongup and Zelo, but all the other dances parts of the dance were awesome, especially the one from the chorus! There are lots of cool moments in the choreography and it makes out to be an overall very impressive performance. Check it out if you haven’t already, and I hope you’re as impressed with this dance as I am.
So, here’s my Top 5 Dances (that I can think of right now)! I obviously have many others that I think are amazing, so if you liked this post, please let me know and I’ll do another one! Who else do you think should’ve been included in this post? Let me know! 🙂 Also, please keep in mind that this is my opinion only, and I wasn’t looking only at how complex or sophisticated the dance was, but also how great of a performance it was to me. I hope you all have a great week, and sorry for the lack of posts! 😦 It’s a bit of a difficult time to be posting as usual, so I hope you understand! Thanks so much for reading and checking out my blog! 🙂 Don’t be shy to comment!
Hugs from your fellow K-Popper! ❤
