The seven members each contribute unique strengths to the group's colorful canon of choreography.
BTS made a big impression on American audiences on Sunday when they performed their record-smashing hit “DNA” at the American Music Awards. Their choreography shook the Western world (and quite a few hearts), so not even the cameras could keep up with the septet's rapid footwork.
It’s the norm for K-pop choreography to be so on point that idols typically put in a potentially harmful amount of practice. Less generous characterizations have often pegged dancing in the Korean pop industry as “robotic” and “mechanical.” But BTS consistently resists those descriptions as their approach to dance is both precise and colorful.
The seven members each offer unique strengths to the group. Of course, the dance line -- J-Hope, Jimin and Jungkook -- is the most adept at bringing their choreography to life. But while RM and Jin often joke that they’re not good dancers, they manage to master the group’s steps every time.
