14.02.2010 MBC Star Dance Battle Review…

well…as you may know (if you’re a K-Pop fan), MBC broadcasted another Star Dance Battle a couple of days ago…this first Star Dance Battle in 2010 featured 2PM, Rainbow, MBLAQ, BEAST, T-ara, After School, gagmen group (i only know Kim Jongmin), gagwomen group (i only know Yoo Chaeyoung), Shin Bongsun, Kim Shinyoung, Super Junior, and of course our lovely SNSD…it also featured some more guests as featuring performer…

as this post’s title said, this post will be about my review of the show…especially the battle rounds, since i’m a dance enthusiast…so the review below will be broken by each segments of the show…i’ll also give verdicts based on my own thought, with 100 as maximum score, along with what i think should be the outcome of the votes…

well, as it suggested, this segment was all about introducing the guests…and the prizes for the winner…Teukigayo (my nickname for the trio: Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, and Shindong) took over MC role to explain the prizes…and Shindong, tho reprimanded by Leeteuk and Eunhyuk in the end, casually took an apple and bit it, only to make the guests laugh after commenting how tasty the apple was…i don’t know what the prize in the jar-like container was, but Hyoyeon and Yoona seemed to be crazy over it…then came the first prize, a meat set (kalbi?) which i think made the some of the guests drooled (think of Kim Shinyoung)…

Round 1: MBLAQ vs Rainbow (ft. Jung Joori)

MBLAQ started the dance battle with Michael Jackson’s “2000 Watts”…classic MJ dance mixed with some popping, and continued to some whip dance that kinda looked martial-art-influenced…the boys then ripped their dark tees to reveal colorful tees inside…a woman (whom i don’t know, the MC?) came from behind the backscreen…and they continued with KARA’s “Mister”…MBLAQ did quite good, but their guest didn’t…

Rainbow only did one song: Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”…i think they did the same choreography like the original one…and tho they’re not as voluptuous as Beyonce, their sexiness weren’t something to look down…the surprise came at around 00:07:45…the backscreen opened like before, and from it, came the mighty Jung Joori…but she actually danced very well to the choreography, tho of course not forgetting to add some gag with the dance as well…
Verdict: MBLAQ 70 vs Rainbow 80
Vote Result: 40-60

Freestyle Round
a BEAST member teased the audience, acting like he’s going to throw his hat to the crowd…two of the gagmen was actually not bad at dancing, doing a freeze and a handstand…when Uee came, she was unfortunately crowded by the gagmen, so close that i think she’s actually afraid, hahaha…T-ara, 2PM, and some other guests only did funny dance, with Hyomin leading T-ara to do it…Gahee then entertained guys by revealing her sexy abs and doing sexy wave (VERY HOT for a 29 year old)…a Rainbow member then also did sexy dance…after her, SNSD took the stage, Sooyoung really took my attention when she raised her jacket to reveal her midriff, the accidental shoulder revealing just added to her sexiness…in Super Junior’s turn, only Donghae got down to the dance, doing a decent windmill…

Round 2: T-ara vs BEAST

T-ara did DISCO, unfortunately i don’t now the singer of this song, tho i know the song is featuring Big Bang’s TOP…and one T-ara member did act as TOP…i don’t know much about this song, but i’d guess T-ara doing the same choreography as the original one…

BEAST performed to Omarion’s “Ice Box”…in their routine, one of ’em approached Jung Joori (or maybe SNSD, but then obstructed by Jung Joori)…their second song was “Hey, Baby” by Omarion feat. Bow Wow…i like their hiphop routine, particularly their wave moves at around 00:21:41…
Verdict: T-ara 55 vs BEAST 85
Vote Result: 30-70

Round 3: Gagwomen Trio vs Gagmen Trio

the Gagmen started things with T-ara’s “Bo Peep Bo Peep”, wearing similar outfit to the original performance, not forgetting the the paw mittens…their dance was, well, funny with a hint of nausea…i dunno ’bout you guys, but for a boy like me, men in skirt dancing their butt is far from pleasing…i even gave up watching after the first chorus, hahaha…

the Gagwomen then spiced things up with 2PM’s “Heartbeat”…the funny part was when they used props like defibrillator…when the song was supposed to end with flat heartbeat sound, it didn’t, so the gagwomen used rubber hammer to pound one of them so that the beat “stop”…they also forced some 2PM members to help them doing the pyramid move…
Verdict: Gagwomen 80 vs Gagmen 70
Vote Result: 55-45

Round 4: After School vs SNSD

After School was the first to go with “Lip Gloss” by Lil Mama…they’re doing chair-and-desk action which made me imagining them as my sexy high school girlfriends…i like it when they did the hand-chin moves on the desk…then they did Chris Brown’s “Wall to Wall”…power dance all the way, with of course Gahee showing off her luxurious mid-riff (yeah, i got a thing for girls with abs like Gahee)…they also gave a little comedy with Bekah…

SNSD performed to “What It Is” by Sophia Fresh…as i said in my previous post, only Hyoyeon-Sooyoung-Yoona-Seohyun who’re performing…i actually like their routine in here, a new change IMO, since their choreography consisted more of popping, more hiphop than the previous ones…i like the head-wave at around 00:36:59…and Yoona was just amazing around 00:37:17…too bad Seohyun did less action compared to other members…
Verdict: After School 85 vs SNSD 80
Vote Result: 55-45

Round 5: Kim Shinyoung vs Shin Bongsun

these round was hilarious…Kim Shinyoung, creative as always, performed to G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker”…she even drew small burger in the corner of her eye…the lyrics was of course changed so that it connected with Shinyoung’s favorite thing: FOOD…i think instead of Heartbreaker, she said empty stomach breaker, or something like that…and again, just like the previous Star Dance Battle she’s in, she took the choreography seriously…

on the other hand, Shin Bongsun also brought the house down by doing Hyuna’s “Change”…even the start was funny, with BEAST(?) members failed to support her weight…plus she also “harassed” those members…and with the wind effect near the end of her stage, things were just laughable…
Verdict: Kim-Dragon 80 vs Shin-A 85
Vote Result: 45-55

Game Segment
i think the point of the game was to flip your opponents and held ’em flipped until the time run out…IMO, the notable people in this game were Sooyoung, Gahee, and Shindong…Sooyoung flipped one opponent and held two down, while Gahee flipped and held two opponents (which were Seohyun and Jessica)…and Shindong? he got so excited that he ripped his opponent’s prop…

Round 6: 2PM vs Super Junior

2PM was performing two songs, Chris Brown’s “Take You Down” and “Bojangles” by Pitbull…i don’t really take attention to their performance…why? because they tried to do sexy dance, which consisted of MANY hip thrust…since i’m a boy, i also don’t think that this is appealing…it’d be a whole different story if its girl groups did it…

it’s different with Super Junior…they’re doing some kind of dance remix, with samplings mixed together…starting with masks on, their popping and waving was simply wicked…with three of ’em as Teukigayo, they made sure there’s comedy…just see 01:03:29-01:03:54…after that they continued with powerful dance with cool moves in the end of it…
Verdict: 2PM 50 vs Super Junior 90
Vote Result: 20-80

Prize Announcement
well…as i predicted while watching the whole show, Super Junior won the first prize…after the bow to the audience, the guests stormed the prizes display (which was consisted mostly of foods)…and of course, we can also see our beloved Shikshin in the midst of that crowd…

well…there goes my review…feel free to leave any comment about it…just make sure to appreciate my opinion, so that i will value yours…please be noticed that the timing i used is based on the full show…you can download the full show below…

  5. noi · December 16, 2010

    i know it’s kinda late, but i just re-watched the show again. i agree with your verdict and vote result, especially round 2 because i think t-ara’s dance was too simple while beast performed awesomely. and i kinda agree with the last round, though i think you’re too harsh with 2pm. well, i’m not really interested with their typical sexy hip moves, but they’re absolutely has skills. as for super junior, kyuhyun was improved very much than what i usually see in their previous MVs, but i think he’s kinda stiff at some moves.
    anyway, great post. thanks for reviewing the show!

    • cyanthrisvain · December 16, 2010

      Sorry for the harsh verdict on 2PM, they got skills alright. But trust me, no men in their right mind like seeing other men doing hip-thrust. Hahaha.
