|I like K-Pop!

Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
Remember the Paula Abdul Era Laker Girls? Or the Fly Girls on In Living Color? They could dance! And they danced in time to the music. So much of what passes for dance, even ballet, boils down to people flopping around the stage while some music plays. Whoop-T-farklin' hoo dooz. I loved to watch the Fly Girls because they moved. Together. In time. Wow. (Did you know Jennifer Lopez started life as a Fly Girl?)
Anyway, many, if not all of these K-Pop groups do the same kind of moves. They're all precisely choreographed in time to the music they are actually singing. They also do big old-Hollywood-style dance numbers, because some of the "bands" have twelve or more members.
They're fun to watch, sort of like the song and dance extravaganzas in Bollywood flicks. They just go over the top with it and it's cool!
