First Super Junior, now SHINee…

It was one thing for one SME idol group Super Junior to jack Lyle’s (two) choreo’s … now another idol group, SHINee (one I like) has done it…

This is interesting. My friend Sam from North Carolina (raise up, take your shirt off, spin it like a helicopter) brought it to my attention.  This  video is of a Korean boy band doing my disturbia choreography to the song “just dance” by Lady GaGa. This was probably taken from our WOD Pomona video. You can see the actual choreography from that video here (starts at 3min)

This whole thing kind of boggles my mind. How can the “choreographer” take pride in their work knowing it isn’t really theirs? I mean congrats you copied the choreography dead on, but that’s about all you really did. I bet it would have been easier to come up with simple yet affective two steps for these “talented” dancers than taking the time to learn my routine off of youtube anyway. If you like the choreography that much then why not do it to the song it was intended for? There was a lot of thought put into the movements that directly correlated to the actual song. Now the choreography means nothing at all. I mean sure it gets the job done but it’s just movement now. No meaning, no depth, no substance, just movement. From the looks of things they have a pretty big budget so why not just ask me to do something for the artist. I would be more than happy and being that i am not considered a big name i would have probably been cheaper than anyone else.

In the end there is little to no chance at all of me getting compensation let alone any credit for this. It just sucks that those who take the time, effort and hard work to create can go over looked by artist and labels. In the end we are small fish in their pond and as of now there is little we can do about it. Thank God for Movement Lifestyle…

Lyle’s answer to Super Junior

A couple of days ago the situation of Super Junior taking choreographer Lyle Beniga‘s “mic check” and “nike boots” choreography was brought to light. Many fans were upset that people like us were saying that they jacked his choreo and were upset at it.

While our opinion doesn’t matter and the only opinion that does matter is Lyle’s, he tweeted a short answer to answer the question about SuJu copying his choreo.

Don’t mind the thing above it… he tweeted this yesterday.

“it doesnt matter if suju claimed dat my choreo was theirs or not, they still used it w/o permish, profitted frm bein on the show & they won! … which is wrong. don’t forget that these are our careers people! ~a quick answer to a repeating question.”

While I’m not sure if he meant to say “it doesn’t” or “it does,” that’s his answer.

By the way, we still think you need to get paid for those two that they took. You earned it!

Special Guest at Big Bang’s Electric Love Tour

J-Pop artist Thelma Aoyama made a special guest appearance at Big Bang‘s Budokan concert, singing her collaborations with TaeYang (SOL) “Fall in love.”

Big Bang also gave a message to PON and asked Okada-san advice on a new introduction for the boys. You can see it at the end of the video. TaeYang went on to say that it’s because of everyone cheering them on that they are able to have concerts in Japan.

I’m loving TOP‘s short hair, but sometimes I’m reminded of Spock.
