Watch: Creators Of “Dancing 9” To Return With New Dancing Romance Program
The production team behind Korea’s first dance survival program Mnet’s “Dancing 9” will be returning with a new dancing romance show, “Somebody.”
“Somebody” is a reality program that observes the “something” that occurs and connects men and women through dance. The show will be produced by producing director Choi Jung Nam and the production staff behind other dancing reality shows such as “Dancing 9” and “Hit the Stage.”
The show will feature 10 dancers, whose focuses range from ballet, contemporary dance, traditional Korean dance, and other classics to poppin, b-boying, and other street dances. They will dance to couple’s choreography and film music videos.
Compared to the focus on competition and abilities of dance survival programs, “Somebody” will take in the rich emotions felt through dance. The show will have dancers perform their changing feelings such as love, friendship, joy, sadness, jealousy, and more for each other. Viewers will guess the dancers’ hearts through their choreography.
Real-life couple Ha Hwi Dong and Choi Soo Jin, who met on Mnet’s “Dancing 9,” are featured in a teaser. In it, they enchantingly meet and perform exquisite choreography. Words flash across the video, saying, “They passionately exchange feelings with dance. The moment their bodies touch, love begins. A love story made through dance.”
Producing director Choi Jung Nam stated, “Through married couple Ha Hwi Dong and Choi Soo Jin, I felt the expression of love being connected by dance. I created the program because rather than having dance as a topic of competition, I wanted to show dance as a device to the completion of love. I think viewers will be able to feel the tightrope-likeness of beautiful dance and risky emotion through ‘Somebody.'”
“Somebody” will air its first episode on November 23 at 11 p.m. KST, after “Show Me the Money 777.”
