On November 20th, with early Christmas carols ringing on the streets in Korea, 3 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Namsan Tower located in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Since it was a time when the coronavirus had increased again, we never took off our masks except when we took pictures. In fact, the official name of Namsan Tower is Namsan Seoul Tower, which Koreans usually call Namsan Tower....
KPD(K-Pop Dance Class) is a program we can have a opportunity of learning famous K-pop dance. On May 2th, Wednesday we had our third KPD class of this semester (also it was the final KPD program of this semester too). There were 4 Yonsei Global members and about 7 people of exchange students participated in this program.
First of all, we met at 6:20 pm in front of the main gate of the university. All students kept the time very quickly, so the program proceeded pretty well. We moved to the dancing studio nearby Sogang University, and we met today’s KPD teacher from our college’s dancing society.
The class started at 7:00pm with teacher’s demonstration of first verse. The song was [BTS – Mic Drop].
Firstly, we followed teacher’s performance slowly with no song. The teacher said we will learn the dancewith no song firstly, and secondly with a slow version of the song, and finally with the original version. He said if we learn first verse of the song, it becomes clearly that we understand all parts of the song as well.
The first class ‘Dancing with no song’ finished at 8:00 pm. We took a break with delicious beverage. The slogan in the dancing room was so impressive. It means “Together, more meaningful tonight”.
The second class started. We did a dance with variety version of the song’s speed. The teacher emphasized the absolute 8 bits of the song when we dance. The genre of the song was EDM(Electronic Dance Music) so it was pretty speedy and complex, however we adapted the rhythm of the song with helping each other.
At 9:00 pm, the dancing class ended. We took a picture with whole members for the commemoration. After the class, we had a late dinner with snack.
