In celebration of Lunar New Year, MBC held a Star Dance Battle between the Wang team – consisting of MBLAQ, T-ara, Yoo Chae Young, Kim Na Young, Jo Hye Ryun, Kim Shin Young and 2PM – and the Shin team – consisting of Rainbow, BEAST, Kim Jong Min, Chun Myung Hoon, Noh Yoo Min, SNSD, Shin Bong Seon and Super Junior.
Round 4 was between dancing divas After School and glamorous genies SNSD.
Unlike the other performance, After School’s performance revolved around a theme of seven school girls in classroom. Unable to contain their need to groove, they initiated a cute dance to Lil Mama’s Lip Gloss. As the music changed to Chris Brown’s Wall-to-Wall, so, too, did the choreography. The dancing divas truly lived up to their title as their dance transitioned into that of a powerful and fierce one. Leader Kahi’s abs flash definitely drove the crowd wild as well. Maintaining their stage persona until the very end of the performance, the girls hurried back to their seats with the sound of the bell.
As the nation’s most popular female idol group, SNSD was expected to uphold their end of the battle as well. Gracing the stage in red glittery attire, Hyoyeon, Seohyun, Yoona and Sooyoung maintained great energy on stage that you just couldn’t pry your eyes away from. For obvious reasons, Hyoyeon held down the performance with her solo, her moves matching perfectly to the rhythm of the beat. In addition, Seohyun showed a side of her that was completely different from the innocent image she has always been portraying. Who knew the maknae could move like that?
