Dance War Spin Off: Round 1 Fancam

Dance War is postponed for a week. With Green 10 and Red 28 gone, the remaining contestants really need to up their game to convince us fans that they are indeed the best final 4. Also, I’m sure 1theK is preparing special treats for us! ❤️

Dance War Round 2

I was preparing my heart the whole day for this! Judging by the songs alone, Don’t Wanna Cry has sexier accents and better melody recall. Clap is just cool all the way. However, Clap team did way better as a unit. 👏 They were more solid. Oh wow! Green 10 and Silver 16 really shined in this! 🌟 Sorry but Team Don’t Wanna Cry were kind of messy together. 😐 I saw three soloists and not a unit at all. The solo parts were great though.

I know many people enjoy stunts and fancy stuff but I like it when they’re getting into the groove. 0:40, 1:26, 2:45 were the winning moments for me. They looked really cool doing that together.

I hope Clap team will win so I can see a 2 on 2 battle between Silver 16 + Green 10 vs Red 28 + Purple 23. Based on the heights and styles, this should be the best potential 2 on 2 match up. Please make it happen.🙏

Dance War Round 1 Results

I honestly don’t know these other idols. Lol. Gold 73 seemed lost during the performance so I was kind of expecting this. Maybe it wasn’t his style. I don’t know. I thought Blue 12 did a better solo section compared to Silver 16. If I were to rank Team Fire: Yellow 22 (1st), Blue 12 (2nd), Silver 16 (3rd), and Gold 73 (4th).

Looking at the voting results, Green 10 has to be in the winning group until the end to survive. More people are voting for their idol biases instead of looking at the talent alone, which is expected from K-pop fans. This puts him at a disadvantage since the other contenders are from groups with a larger fan base. I hope he’ll be able to show his best self in the next rounds and gain more fans.

Anyway, I’m excited for Round 2! Bring it on! White team members are all loud dancers who are great at fluid movements. I wonder who will shine brighter between Purple 23 and Yellow 22. Both are spotlight stealers. This means Pink 02 needs to work harder to be noticed. On the other hand, Black team members Green 10 and Silver 16 are skilled urban dancers. I hope they pick a trendy, urban track. Red 28 can bring the flair to the group of more grounded, relatively ‘quieter’ dancers.

Dance War

1theK will launch a dance battle survival web series called Dance War on Oct 2. I have a gut feeling that ONF’s U will participate that’s why he has been too busy to update on Twitter recently.  He is probably preparing for it. I really hope he participates because he can seriously win this. It is evident that his dance foundations are really strong. His sense of rhythm is top-notch. His freestyle is creative. When it comes to solid dancing, he pretty much has this in the bag. Other boy group dancers might try to appeal to the audience through provocative hip motions, body waves and anything sexy. Who can blame them? It’s common and popular. Others may add in b-boy stunts and acrobatics because it looks impressive. While U banks on hitting the beats hard, flowing his movement smoothly with the music, and wowing with his rich dance vocabulary which fully satisfies dance geeks like me, I hope that he can think of the general public more by incorporating highlights and carefully adding in exactly those segments I’ve mentioned above since it’s a competition where people have to vote. He has to learn to appeal to the audience more.

Well, it’s not official yet. We’ll have to wait and see if he’ll actually participate.😋

He deserves to win this and gain more recognition for his amazing talent. I’m always rooting for U! 😉
