11 K-Pop Choreographies From 2015 That Make Great Songs Even Better

Choreography is a huge part of K-pop, which is often as visual as it is auditory. Realize the combination of a great song and a great performance, and you have the foundation for success.

Mediocre choreography can’t make you dislike a song you love, but great choreography can make you love a song that you thought was just okay, and make you see things you never heard before in the music. Much like a film or drama soundtrack, it makes us love a song not just for the sound, but for the performance it reminds us of. 

Here are 11 K-pop choreographies, both official and unofficial, that made us love the songs even more. 

BIGBANG — “Good Boy”

Choreographed by Parris Goebel.

The simplicity of this is everything. (This one’s actually a late 2014 release; it’ll be a mini throwback.)

BTS — “Dope”

Choreographed by Keone Madrid (assisted by Carlo Darang).

Just dope.

4Minute — “Crazy”

Choreographed by Parris Goebel.

This has to be one of my favorite K-pop girl group choreographies to date.

iKON — “Rhythm Ta”

Choreographed by Parris Goebel.

Also a lesson in simplicity. Also by Parris.


Choreographed by SEVENTEEN’s Hoshi.

So sharp, and their energy is infectious!

EXO — “Call Me Baby”

Choreographed by Nappy Tabs (Napoleon and Tabitha).

The one-take style just makes this so much better.

GOT7 — “If You Do”

Choreographed by Park Jin Young.

The chorus. That’s all I’m saying.

Crush — “Whatever You Do”

Choreographed by Bucky.

When you get choreo to a song you wouldn’t otherwise expect it for..

And now for the unofficial original pieces!

Zion.T x Crush — “Just”

Choreographed by Eunho Kim.

So smooth.

Song Mino x Zico — “Okey Dokey”

Choreographed by Junsun Yoo.

Pure fun!

iKON — “My Type”

Choreographed by Sori Na.

I think iKON danced to “My Type” for a NEPA ad, but… this one’s better.

jun2yng is a huge fan of dancers/choreographers like Parris and Keone, and loves when they work with K-Pop artists.
