Let’s face it, the butt has quite a tough job. We sit on it all day long and it never gets to see the front. However, KPOP has given behinds the spotlight for a change and has found ways to display them in cute, sexy and constantly catchy ways. Join in on the fun!
Kara – Mister
I’m pretty sure that when you saw the title of this article, the first thing that popped into your head was this song. Yes, Mr is definitely the most well-known “butt dance”, but for very good reason. The catchy dance may be super contagious, but it looks much easier than it really is!
Sistar - Alone
While this song is uber sophisticated and chic, it also oozes sexiness with the added butt dance. Their saucy dresses emphasise the up and down motion of the dance, and the long legs that we all wish we had.
Spica - Russian Roulette
Russian Roulette features a very catchy whistling tune, which is further recognized with the side to side rear dance. It may not be the dance that is thought of when the song is mentioned, but it is certainly memorable.
Co-Ed - Too Late
When we hear Too Late, we immediately think of tapping wrists with invisible watches, a ticking tune and, of course, the synchronized bum swinging that accompanies the repeated “oh’s” of the melody. Sometimes, a move like this is the only move that we remember!
4minute - First
First features the use of backsides in quite a different way than any of the others. Instead of swinging or moving back and forth, the girls of 4minute tap their behinds to the rhythm as they turn to face the camera. There’s just something cute about it.
Dal Shabet - Supa Dupa Diva
Supa Dupa Diva showed off their petite figures and adorable dance moves with their debut track, which included what looks like wagging bums. Together with their tiny outfits, these girls have turned a bum dance into an aegyo dance that everyone can join in on.
Hyuna - Bubble Pop
Hyuna may have a cute, whiny personality, but when she hits the stage, her sexy persona takes over. For Bubble Pop, she showed how she pops bubbles: with her bottom! With every “pop” in the tune, she does her popping motion. This butt dance has got to be the most, uh, seductive of the lot and is probably most popular with the guys.
JJ Project - Bounce
Head banging and multiple genres are what make JJ Project popular, apart from their obvious good looks. However, their aegyo-filled bum shakes when they sing “shake it and shake it for me” have become the real trend. The expression is the key, too!
T-ara - Bo Peep Bo Peep
The cat-like hand movement of Bo Peep has always been popular and well-known, but the move that always got audiences the most excited was what I like to call “The Revolving Butt”. As they go around in circles, they bop up and down to both Bo and Peep!
After this, these butt dances are probably going to be the ones that you remember most. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Any suggestions for part 2?
