A few months ago, Tony An expressed that he felt burdened by Moon Hee Jun‘s dancing skills. Recently, however, he revealed that Moon Hee Jun’s encouragement played a great role in helping him conquer the potential of being eliminated on ‘Dancing with the Stars 2′.
On June 13th, Tony An stated on his Twitter, “Last week I experienced the danger of elimination, and now, I’m [putting my all] into practicing in order to survive. Hee Jun visited during practice and gave me a lot of advice as well, thank you Hee Jun~! And so, I will try my hardest in order to improve. I can’t play around and have fun as much anymore. I will do my best!”
On June 8th, Tony An danced to a track from the OST of the movie ‘Dirty Dancing’, showing a passionate samba performance on the program. Although he successfully pulled off a difficult lift move, his poor condition led to a less-than-ideal performance. His facial expressions were cited as a concern among other flaws, and he ended up almost being eliminated.
Netizens commented on Tony An’s situation, saying, “But the samba stage was really cool,” “Now [we really get to see] the ability of the remaining participants,” “Have strength,” “But [he did] the ‘lifting’ movement well, and [I thought he did] okay,” “Tony An, hwaiting,” “It’s nice to see [Tony An and Hee Jun's] friendship,” and “His resolution is impressive.”
