Those of you who are on my Facebook page know how much I love dance practice videos, sometimes even more than the official music videos. So today I decided to share some of my favorites. This is by no means a ‘best of’ list, just some of the ones I like and go back to again and again.
Right now I’m really enjoying iKON’s Killing Me. There’s something about the way they are using their hands and arms as well as their whole bodies. A lot of the moves look simple although I doubt they are, and they fit the music perfectly. I find it slightly hypnotic and been watching it daily since it came out.
NCT is particularly noted for their dancing ability and I could easily choose more than one of their videos to be on this list, but NCT U edges ahead with Boss. Again it has that look at me vibe. I have to watch.
I Like You (Boyfriend version) from Got7 is still my ‘to go to’ MV for if I’ve had a bad day. The are so young and cute, yet trying so hard to be sexy. They make me smile every time.
BTS could also be on the list multiple times, but I keep going back to the iconic Fire. I’ve followed them since their debut ,and there has always been something addictive about their personalities, music and dance. I’m happy to see them succeeding.
Originally dance practice videos were just that, a video of the group practicing. Nowadays most of the videos are of polished performances and while that allows us to watch the choreography without all the distractions of the sets, costumes etc it can occasionally lessen the charm. This old video of 2NE1 & Big Bang is a classic ‘oldie’.
And then There’s Big Bang.
Big Bang has moved with the times and their dance practice video for Bang Bang Bang is still one of my favorites. One of the reasons being that they are not the perfectly synchronized idol group like those we usually see today. They each have their individual character which is especially striking if you watch TOP.
But that uniqueness and individuality in the oftentimes cookie cutter world of Kpop will always make them special to me.
Do you have a favorite dance practice video? Please let me know in the comments below.
Have a great day everyone.
