10 Of The Most Memorable Dance Breaks In K-Pop Performances

Choreography is one of the best parts of watching a K-pop performance or a music video, and definitely makes K-pop stand out as a genre. From bright, bubbly concepts to cool, smooth moves that you just can’t get out of your head, there’s a choreography to suit everyone’s tastes. In no particular order, here are some really memorable ones!

1. TXT’s “Blue Hour”

The fun concept and mid-song costume change in “Blue Hour” definitely makes it one of TXT’s best, and the creative use of the cowboy styling made it extra memorable. The dance break even had some old Western-inspired moves, which is pretty unique. Plus, TXT always manages to perfectly synchronize their choreography!


This choreography went viral for a good reason – it’s unbelievably fun to dance, and even more fun to watch! The ladies of ITZY bring their all to every “Wannabe” performance, which makes that tough dance break choreography look even more impressive. They never miss even a single beat!

3. NCT 127’s “Kick It”

NCT 127 is known for having some of the most intense choreographies in the game right now, but they really wowed fans with their song “Kick It.” The dance break, which features martial arts-inspired choreography, is extra memorable because it features a flying kick from rapper Mark. They have to be superheroes in order to pull off choreography like this!


TWICE doesn’t often feature dance breaks in their songs, but this one in “More & More” proves that they’re total masters! The choreography, led by main dancer Momo, gives all nine members a chance to show off their skills with some unique formations and rhythmic movements that really make an impact.


“BOY” is TREASURE’s debut track, but the members perform it like seasoned professionals! The entire choreography is very high-energy from start to finish, so it’s amazing that they still manage to bring their all when the bass drops. If you’ve never seen this performance, then you’re definitely missing out!

6. aespa’s “Savage”

This choreography is a master class in making subtle moves look impactful, and aespa is totally rocking it! The dance break choreography definitely takes it up a notch in terms of intensity, and the smooth transition between the two styles makes it a super memorable stage performance.

7. SEVENTEEN’s “Getting Closer”

Every SEVENTEEN choreography is unique and memorable in its own way, but the dance break in “Getting Closer” definitely stands out as one of the group’s best. All 13 members have to be able to stay on top of every beat in order to make the choreography work, and they kill it every time!

8. IZ*ONE’s “Secret Story of the Swan”

The dance break in “Secret Story of the Swan” showed a surprisingly powerful side of IZ*ONE that had never been seen before, and it definitely made a statement! The choreography is fast and difficult, but the ladies of IZ*ONE made it look totally effortless. One of the group’s most memorable stages, for sure!


This version of “Mic Drop” is perhaps BTS’s best dance stage so far, and even though it’s over four years old it still stands out among their many iconic performances. Their stage presence is no joke, and the skill with which they dance some really difficult choreography is impressive even for experienced performers. They’re legends for a reason!

10. BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That”

This dance break is pretty long, which means that BLACKPINK has to be able to dance some of their hardest, most high-energy choreography for a lot more time than most. Not to worry, though – they’ve got this one on lock! This performance of “How You Like That” looks amazing, and it gets better and better every time you watch it.
