Why does Korean Pop feature so much backbreaking, grueling dancing?
My daughter's been listening to KPop, like Girls' Generation Into the New World. You can watch the Ballad versions, with NO dancing, at the Tokyo Dome for the 2011 Girls Generation Tour, and Girls and Peace concert in Seoul. You can see their racking dancing in other parts of this same Tokyo Dome performance.
First, I don't understand what the racking dancing adds?
Second, I can understand some easygoing dancing to accompany the music. But why's the dancing so toilsome? This dancing definitely wearies and wears out these youngsters. YouTube got so many videos of Idols fainting and collapsing.
I'm assuming that ordinary listeners aren't trained, and can't dance like this. Why don't these KPop Idols and KPop Management Companies stick to laid-back dancing or dancing that their fans can realistically mimic?
