K-Pop Dances You Need to Learn During Quarantine

The pandemic has given us no choice but to stay home. While we are all doing our part self-quarantining, the repetitive daily routine has become quite daunting. With today’s situation, Zoom is the new way of life. Although we are slowly becoming couch potatoes, learning K-Pop dances at home can be a way to distract ourselves from the chaos while staying active! Here are seven iconic dances to learn during quarantine: 

“I Can’t Stop Me” by Twice

The “I Can’t Stop Me” chorus has become a worldwide phenomenon on TikTok,  so join the trend and learn the upbeat dance combo! At first, the choreography looks incredibly intimidating with grand arm movements and floor moments, but anyone can tackle the dance with practice! The synthpop, retro-styled song has an addictive melody and is easily one of the best-made tracks by Twice. 

“Mmmh” by Kai

EXO’s Kai has confirmed yet again why he is everyone’s heartthrob. The performer produces a sultry, hypnotizing song with trap influence in his title track “Mmmh.” Along with the lyrics, the choreography complements the lyrics with an easygoing dance that matches the sensual mood.

The Movie by Lisa
