A representative of “Dancing 9″ said, “Lee Min Woo, Hyoyeon, and Yuri will appear on the show as K-Pop dance masters…With experience in domestic and international stage experience, they will be a great help to the ‘Dancing 9′ candidates.”
The three will join dance sport professional Park Ji Woo, B-boy Ducky (Kim Duk Hyun), entertainer Poppin J to complete the cast for “Dancing 9.” These dance masters will divide into groups and offer coaching to the contestants.
Lee Min Woo shared about his excitement for the program. “In my fifteen years in Shinhwa I have sensed that dance goes beyond language, age, and gender…as someone who loved dancing even before becoming a singer, I am excited to meet many people who will take on the dance challenges.”
Hyoyeon and Yuri were also excited to work with the contestants on the show. “We want to share our knowledge on passion, talent, stage presence, and teamwork to the contestants.”
“Dancing 9” is the ultimate global dance survival program. Dancers from all over the world will be flown to Korean to participate. The competition will ultimately pare down the number of aspiring dancers to 18, splitting them into two teams of nine, and then choosing one team as the winner. The winning team will receive $500,000 in value rewards, and the MVP member of the team will receive the fulfillment of a wish – such as tuition to a dance school.
