6 KPOP DANCES NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED

KPOP dances aren't as easy as they seem. In fact some of them are just downright H-A-R-D. Let's face it. Not every song is going to be gangnam style, even though it definitely has its merits. 


stop it with the gangnam style. even Psy says so. for real. 


The level of synchronicity and technical execution is often overlooked, and more often than not, it goes way beyond than just copying the steps.

Of course, there are simple iconic moves within most KPOP dances that are easy, so that every fan can simply catch on. But hey! We're here to discuss the 6 hardest dance choreographies aren't we!

In no particular order, here are our choices which really love to put our psychomotor skills to the test!

SHINEE - LUCIFER



WHY IT MAKES OUR LIFE HARD
One of the first KPOP dances that really put the test on the KPOP fan's dance skill. The opening intro steps are more than enough to tell me: "STOP KILLING THE DANCE DUDE"

The choreography that almost every KPOP fan had to learn, we totally sold out slots for this dance class with a record of almost 400 students for this dance alone. 2 years on and we're still receiving requests for this class!

INFINITE - PARADISE



WHY IT MAKES OUR LIFE HARD
Angles. Angles. Angles. Watch the playback above, and look at the moves from the pre-chorus onwards. Now, try them while looking at the mirror. Notice how it almost looks nothing like theirs? 

The moves here incorporate a lot of the leaning of the body. Not sure how to position your weight? Then you're gonna have a horrid time trying to adjust yourself to look as good as the guys above.

RAIN - HIP SONG



WHY IT MAKES OUR LIFE HARD
Slick. Swag. Stamina. We had the privilege of learning from this choreographer during our overseas training trip, and to say it was intense would be a major understatement. 

The different subtleties in the song, from cool to explosive, while making it look like child's play is no easy feat! You'd need the stamina of a bull to really pull this off...

BOA - ONLY ONE



WHY IT MAKES OUR LIFE HARD
Lyrical Madness. First off, let me explain that the Lyrical dance style, is when you dance to the lyrics of the song, rather than its beats. Hence, the timing isn't as routine as what you thought it might be.

B.A.P - ONE SHOT




WHY IT MAKES OUR LIFE HARD
Stamina. This dance is grueling. Psuedo push ups. Psuedo burpie-like moves. It's no wonder I see students gasping for air after doing this full song. 

It's like barely passing your 2.4km run, then made to run 5 more sets of it.

EXO - MAMA



WHY IT MAKES OUR LIFE HARD
Speed & Sharpness. Mother (forgive the pun) of difficult dances! 
Choreographed by renowned international dancer Lyle Beniga, the amount of moves within the beats is amazing, especially during the intro and bridge parts of the song. I mean look at the footwork!

While you can see that the Exo members above are slightly marking for the video. Can you imagine them going at it, full out? 
(o.O''')
