Here’s why ITZY Ryujin’s cover of BLACKPINK’s choreography is controversial

The fancam of Ryujin performing Boombayah (BLACKPINK) at the MIXNINE show is being discussed by fans on social networks.

Since the pre-debut era, ITZY’s Ryujin has been known by many Kpop fans for her participation in MIXNINE, YG’s survival program broadcast in 2017. As one of the most outstanding contestants of MIXNINE, Ryujin is loved for attractive performance skills and badass aura. Recently, netizens brought up her performance in episode 5 of MIXNINE. This is the stage where Ryujin and the team Benefit covered the song Boombayah (BLACKPINK).

Fans were impressed by Ryujin’s pre-debut performance. When performing the choreography of the YG girl group, Ryujin received many compliments for her natural charisma, confident expression, and clean movements. At that time, Ryujin had not officially debuted but she already exuded a star aura that overwhelmed many other contestants.

However, there are also comments that Ryujin’s dance style on the Boombayah stage is still quite rigid, lacking softness and flexibility. When compared with the performances of Dalla Dalla, Wannabe, Not Shy, Mafia In The Morning, LOCO, it can be seen that Ryujin has improved a lot in terms of flexibility. Ryujin still retains the characteristic style with clean and comfortable movements, but the dance moves have become more flexible and attractive.

Although her expression is extremely attractive
  • I can see that Ryujin has really improved over time when adding flexibility to her dance moves.
  • I don’t think Ryujin dances rigidly. She has good force control and dances very neatly.
  • There’s no need to doubt Ryujin’s dancing skills. She’s been at the top since pre-debut.
  • Ryujin’s expression on this stage made me fall for her.
  • Ridiculous. In the past, Ryujin was criticized for being a stiff dancer, but see how much she has improved. It’s all thanks to her that ITZY’s choreography has gone viral.
