A Dance Post: Some Athletic Choreo of 2018 (so far)


There was a lot of comments about not seeing anything hard dance wise from this year's releases. This isn't a top list and very non-scientific. What others would you add?

Hyolyn - Dally 10/10 on the I Would Break My Neck/Ankles/Everything Scale

Dreamcatcher - Full Moon (edit: replaced you & I because I thought this came out in 2017)

Twice - Dance The Night Away (it's harder than it looks)

UNB - Black Heart

NCT Dream - Go
(op note: these kids get some of the hardest choreo in kpop, even within NCT itself, and should get more recognition for it)

CBX - Blooming Days

an excuse to talk about choreo since we talk a lot about visuals and music! who stood out? what's been missing this year?

don't come for me for including twice or how half-assed this probably looks lol i just wanted to talk about something other than triple H's current death march T_T

I mean the Dance the Night Away choreo is intense though. Like when Momo is tired they were putting in work.

The video is dumb but I really like the choreo for Baam, especially at the bridge (2:49)

cosmicdaze 7th-Aug-2018 09:56 pm (UTC)
that part of the baam choreo always makes me laugh because the first time i saw it i immediately thought of this 😩

giddy up by the boyz is some of the best choreo i've ever seen in kpop.
torontok 8th-Aug-2018 12:08 am (UTC)
I wish we'd get a dance practice for KeePer too, the bits of choreo we saw in the MV looks so creative

No NCT Black on Black? Hate the song, but love the choreo.
vintage_boom 7th-Aug-2018 10:43 pm (UTC)
I didn't include it because technically they've been dancing it since 2016 :S

I liked the artistic elements of BTS' Fake Love choreo but otherwise it was pretty plain and their choreo for Airplane was basic af. Anpanman is the only release of theirs' this year that had actual good choreo.

Stand out choreo has to be Twice, that was hard af and they did it really well. I also really liked Hyolyn's See Sea choreo.

I loved RV's Bad Boy choreo.

DDDD choreo from BP was basic af but Young Forever had some good elements.

iKon's choreo just looks like a mash-up of BTS and NCT choreo.

SVT's Oh My intro choreo is also a really great touch and I loved it.

I really wish Got7 (who arguably have the best roster for dancers other than NCT) would put out some more of that "martial arts tricking", that choreo really pops.

This year the most original choreo was from NCT. They have the numbers and the talent to put out really epic performances and I want to see more from them.

I would love to see rvs bad boy choreo done by the choregrapher & team -- it would be glorious

love the 9m header op!! figaro will always be one of the best (retro) kpop songs ever

shinee - good evening

vixx - scientist

clc - black dress

g-idle - latata (esp the last drop!!!!!! soyeon went OFF)

Black Dress and Latata 😍 Cube is delivering it with the girl groups this year!

I’m glad you acknowledged Dance the Night Away!!!

Personally I’d replace You and I with Full Moon. You and I was the first song where the choreography disappointed me a bit. It’s still good because it’s Dreamcatchers - my standards are very high for them lol, but idk it didn’t wow me while Full Moon was soooo good
vintage_boom 7th-Aug-2018 11:57 pm (UTC)
omg yes Full Moon should have been up there for some reason I thought it was 2017 and didn't even check to make sure :/ definitely the more athletic of the two
chasing_thewind 7th-Aug-2018 11:54 pm (UTC)
Day6 has the best choreo and best dancers in kpop, no debate!! they even have an entire song dedicated to dancing:

trolling aside, i love the choreo for black heart, especially the version they did on idol room where every member had a chance to be in the center for a bit. unb has a group full of amazing dancers, and i wish they got a bit more attention than they do now.

+1 for your UNB comments
torontok 8th-Aug-2018 12:07 am (UTC)
Giddy Up by The Boyz is incredibly athletic, the formation changes, floorwork for some of the verses and the constant movement make this exhausting to even attempt, Also their synchronization is next level.

And I love that thigh slapping move lol
avrgaesthetics 8th-Aug-2018 01:28 am (UTC)
i always get hypnotized by this choreo omg
minho_lover 8th-Aug-2018 12:11 am (UTC)

twice dtna is such a good workout dance too lol

carmine_pink 8th-Aug-2018 01:13 am (UTC)
A+ for including UNB's Black Heart, OP! The choreo is not only athletic but also acrobatic, they should get more recognition for it.

I think NewKidd's Shooting Star has some great moves but am still waiting for a dance version and/or dance practice video. Another recent one I enjoy is SF9's Now or Never.
chanyeolized 8th-Aug-2018 03:50 am (UTC)
The choreo for UNB and NCT are so tight! I'm so happy my dream babies are being recognized
hwangak 8th-Aug-2018 04:05 am (UTC)
this is a japanese release from svt but i just want to post it because it's so mesmerizing and satisfying to watch.

omg i was just gonna link this

all the hopping and mountain climber moves is insane

edit: a dancer did a breakdown thread of the choreo and i thought it was an interesting read

I fucking LOVE the choreo for Dance the Night Away. It made the song grow on me.
timetobegin 8th-Aug-2018 05:46 am (UTC)
Nothing is gonna top Dally I think.

I don't know why people are so strongly shitting on the DTNA choreo. It's clearly a high energy one with alot of intense movements - I like it and it really fits the song. (I've seen people claim that the Du Ddu Du Ddu choreo goes harder and lmao it REALLY doesn't.)
miwa201 8th-Aug-2018 12:33 pm (UTC)
lmaooo dddd is bp's worst choreo, and the worst part is how they don't even take advantage of the instrumental at the end.
