Kpop is all about the hits. That chorus you can't get out of your head, the dance you HAVE to learn, the phrases and outfits you suddenly find yourself adopting.
So what are THE viral dances in Kpop history? Let's take a trip down memory lane shall we?
Wonder Girls - Tell Me
This was THE viral dance. I remember back in the day you couldn't watch a variety show without having some guy try to do this dance (I have seen Super Junior do this probably a thousand times) The Wonder Girls went on to be the viral dance queens, and probably would still be huge if JYP hadn't tried to break them in America.
SNSD - Gee
You probably know this dance by accident simply because we see it SO OFTEN. This is the song that broke it open for SNSD and boosted them to stardom (and then Genie sealed their fate as the queens of Kpop)
Wonder Girls - Nobody
They're back! With a triumphant return from America, this dance slaaaaaaayed in the Kpop world and everybody picked up on it. This is another dance that would randomly show up on variety shows just cause the Running Man guys had it stuck in their heads or something.
PSY - Gangnam Style
Do I even need to talk about this? Please don't make me...
Brown Eyed Girls - Abracadabra
YAAAAS. This is the song that made me fall in love with Brown Eyed Girls. This dance was then used again in PSY's Gentleman just to make it even more well known!
T-ARA - Roly Poly
This song is like Kpop line dancing. You just naturally know the dance moves and its weird and easy to remember and it looks cool if a giant group of people are doing it. Learn it and use it as a party trick.
EXID - Up and Down
This song came out and didn't get a lot of attention. One incredible fan cam later and it was SHOT to stardom about 6 months after it came out. Everyone knows this dance, everyone loves this dance, EXID rocks.
Super Junior - Sorry Sorry
If you don't know this dance then I don't know you. This is when Super Junior decided to actually be a high budget awesome boy band and their viral hits just kept getting turned out.
B2ST - Fiction
This is a classic Beast 'its not a ballad but its not a dance track' that will blow you away. The choreo is so understated but that chorus is something everyone should know how to do.
