KOREAN SHOWS: Dancing with the Stars Korea - Season 2 (2)

Tonight, Actress Choi Yeojin placed first two weeks in a row and I think it's no wonder as she is teamed up with Korea's number one dancer, Park Ji Woo, and she has a background in ballet training.  Maybe it's just me, but I see more chemistry between Choi and Park than Jessica Gomez and him in the first season.  They just danced in perfect harmony.  (Please note that the placement I'm talking about here is solely based on the judges' marks.)

Hyoyeon placed second this time and I think it's well-deserved.  She seems to have been born to jive!  Last week, she struggled to forget about all the popping/hip hop moves she's been doing over a decade.  As we all know, it's always much harder to unlearn old behaviors or ideas than to learn new ones, so I'm so proud of her.

Rhythmic Gymnast and Olympian Shin Sooji danced great and made the top three - she has so natural a way of moving that she makes it look so effortless.  But in fact, as her partner nicknamed her "The Monster," she is the epitome of perspiration, a living example of "Doing well in business is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration."

Can you think of anyone else who is livelier, bubblier, more cheerful, more youthful, and last but not least, more girly than Actress Ye Jiwon (of "Old Miss Diary"), I mean, at the age of 40?  I can't.  Tonight, she just missed the "podium" finishing fourth; I think some of her moves were quite jerky but except that, I really enjoyed watching her dance.

  1. I didn't plan to watch this show, but since u blog it, I'm in. (well only as far as the video you've posted anyway).

    The ranking is all well deserved I think from what I see. I'm not a dance expert by any means, and I don't know any of the contestants except for Hyoyeon lol. but I think it's almost unfair to the others that Choi Yeojin is paired up with the #1 dancer! Her posture and bearing has a totally different feel to it than all the others.

    So who are you cheering for?

  2. Wahyimo, I don't watch the entire show 'cause I don't have enough time to do so. These four contestants are my favorites (not only on this show but in their specialty fields), so whoever wins, I really don't care. BTW, just in case you're a K-drama fan, Choi Yeojin made her name known playing So Jiseop's ex in "I'm Sorry But I Love You."
