At a recent press conference for upcoming Mnet program “Hit the Stage,” SISTAR’s Bora opened up about why she decided to join the show.
“Before SISTAR—ever since I was little—I danced a lot. But after becoming [a part of] SISTAR, I found that I wasn’t really able to dance in the way that I had always had. It was always just the choreography for shows,” Bora shares.
She continues, “I think as a result I forget a lot of the dances that I used to dance, and I found that I was little disappointed with myself. And through my time on ‘Hit the Stage,’ I am hoping to discover the dance that I’ve wanted to do.”
“I used to explore a variety of [dance] genres too, and I’m hoping to show you a variety of dance genres,” Bora says.
The moderator of the panel asks, “Which genre are you most interested in?”
Bora replies, “If I tell you, that would be a spoiler!”
“You also learned ballet, right? Won’t there be a stage incorporating [ballet]?” the moderator asks.
“Yes, I learned ballet when I was little, but whether I incorporate ballet or not… you can check for yourself [by watching] the show,” Bora says, laughing.
“Hit the Stage” is Mnet’s new dance survival show that showcases the dance talent of celebrities and professional dancers. With a different theme for every episode, the “Hit the Stage” contestants will battle it out every week, with their ranking determined by a special panel.
The first episode of “Hit the Stage” will air on July 27 at 11 p.m. KST.
