BLACKPINK has revealed that the famous point dance in "DDU DU DDU DU" was not part of their original choreography.
BLACKPINK celebrated their 5th debut anniversary during their recent 'V Live'. While relating some of their fun episodes, BLACKPINK members revealed that the original choreography for "DDU DU DDU DU" did not include the gun-shooting move in the chorus.
Jennie shared that the original move had the girls hold their hands out instead, with palms down flat while moving it left and right. The members also revealed they were the ones who changed this to the gun-shooting move on the day of the MV shooting.
"We used the original move at first just to monitor it, because we were afraid of getting into trouble for changing it on our own terms," said Jisoo.
Netizens applauded the girls for coming up with such a memorable point dance, with a small but major detail. Some comments include:
"Wow, I can't believe they decided on the spot during the MV shoot"
"They came up with it on their own!! Brilliant"
"Without the gun-shooting dance, the choreo might have been rather bland"
"But when I imagine them doing the original move, I find that also cute lol"
"I watched the demo version of the choreography done by the dancers and it did not give off the current DDU DU DDU DU vibe"
"Is YG bad at making their own artists' choreographies? Sounds like WINNER's 'Really Really' was also done by an external team"
"LOL Jennie looks so cute"
Which dance move is better? The original version or the current one?
