When I was living in NYC I discovered the phenomenon known as KPOP aka Korean POP. It all started when I heard a song called "Wedding Dress" by Tae Yang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIt6KCwlFPw
I am a sucker for ballads, but what intrigued me about it was the music video... there was dancing. In American music videos nowadays dancing has taken a sideline and no longer coexists on the same level as the actual song. Gone are the days of Micheal Jackson where his Thriller music video wasn't just about the song, but also about the performance art of dance. After watching Tae Yang's music video, I started looking into more KPOP and found that most the groups and singers accompany their singing with complex choreography and thus I started my journey into KPOP culture.
After a few months in NYC, I was introduced to a dance company called I LOVE DANCE, which is run by MJ Choi, one of the nicest people I met while in NYC. She really cares about her students and treats everyone there like a family member. After a month or two dancing with I LOVE DANCE, I got the privilege to dance in one of their promotional videos (see if you can find me):
Now that I am living in LA I no longer get to dance with them, but I am grateful that they were able to give me a a taste of KPOP culture and ultimately begin my journey into DANCE.
