my5 Choreography

I would like to meet anyone who can disprove me that most contemporary Korean music is not geared towards dancing.

And because of this, Korean recording artists have built themselves a reputation as the dancing kings and queens of the world; but it also puts immeasurable pressure on them to constantly give their audience a wow-factor in their signature dance moves. Whether it’s through b-boying, popping, locking, acrobatics, and even poll-dancing, you can find all sorts of cool dance moves/genre in K-Pop artists’ choreography.

But it’s not always the flashy dance moves that make us want to try it out. Sometimes, it’s the small, catchy, DIY sort of movements that give us permission to copy them without embarrassing ourselves.

And it’s these simple movements that give inception to my5 Choreography we’ve all tried, whether it’s at a social gathering, karaoke bar, or in front of a mirror, don’t deny that you haven’t tried at least one of these (TBH: I have, unashamedly, tried them all):

5. Heartbeat by 2PM

The lyrics we danced to:   “Listen to my heartbeat! Beating for you!”

Signature dance move:

4. Sorry Sorry by Super Junior

The lyrics we danced to:

“Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry
내가 내가 내가 먼저
네게 네게 네게 빠져
빠져 빠져 버려 baby
Shawty Shawty Shawty Shawty
눈이 부셔 부셔 부셔
숨이 막혀 막혀 막혀
내가 미쳐 미쳐 baby”

English translation:

 “Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry
I I I first
For you for you for you I fell
fell fell fallen baby
Shawty Shawty Shawty Shawty
Eyes are blinding blinding blinding
Breathe is stifled stifled stifled
I’m going crazy crazy baby”

Because of you – I’ll change into something strong”
