Choreographer for EXID’s “Up and Down” Talks About Creating the Dance
The choreography of EXID’s wildly popular “Up&Down” song has shared about the response to the dance.
On March 22, Bae Yoon Jung starred on tvN’s “Taxi” with stylist Han Hye Yeon. When she was asked how she came to create that dance, she replied, “Honestly, I didn’t come up with the dance by myself. I made it with my partner Jeon Heung Bok. If you give me an idea, I can express with my body,” giving examples like the Brown Eyed Girls’ “arrogant dance,” KARA’s “butt dance,” and EXID’s “Up&Down” dance.
In particular, when asked about EXID’s song, she said, “I received a lot of criticism because of it. People said, ‘This choreography is just doing whatever it wants.’ EXID had been promoting on broadcasts and then and stopped, but because of a fancam, they started promoting again. I think there’s a luck to choreography as well.”
