Rain Reveals How Much The Choreo Cost For His Collabs With Park Jin Young And Chungha
During the May 2 broadcast of the SBS reality show, comedian Kim Joon Ho visited Rain at his agency with his friends KCM and Lee Sang Min in tow. Explaining that he had recently launched his own cat character, Kim Joon Ho asked if Rain would be willing to come up with the “choreography for his new character’s theme song.
After they all sat down to chat, Lee Sang Min asked Rain how much choreography cost these days, compared to back when he was still active as a singer and music producer. “Choreography these days? It’s really expensive,” replied Rain.
He went on to reveal, “Right now, we receive choreography from both foreign choreographers and Korean choreographers [while working on a song]. We end up with three different versions, and we combine them to come up with the final choreography for the song.”
Using his recent collaborations with Park Jin Young and Chungha as examples, Rain continued, “In the case of ‘Switch to Me,’ I think the total cost came out to about 30 million won [approximately $27,000], and I think the choreography costs for ‘Why Don’t We‘ came out to around 20 million won [approximately $18,000].”
