Well, their average practice time is 6-8 hours a day! They reach really crazy levels of speed and coordination.
Watch the amazing control, the crazy synchronization and the charismatic way they pull these off… it’s mind-blowing. It’s crazy how coordinated Seventeen and NCT are, even with the gigantic number of members they have.
Seventeen never fails to amaze me. They move like ONE PERSON.
They were PERFECT even when the song was played at 2x speed!
I think kpop’s “noise era” was introduced because of the shifting focus to choreography. It’s next to impossible to keep to a melody and harmonize while doing all that. They have to break down choruses to simple lines being repeated and shouted/rapped instead of being sung. And yet, many kpop groups do even that. The trick is to build the choreography AROUND the vocalists, enabling the main vocals to escape dancing too much and focus on singing. SM also uses song bridges to give the artists a chance to show off their vocals and then blend that into a dance break so they can show off their moves.
Since I’m straying off topic, I’ll post some of this in the who’s got the best moves thread
