Saturday night we were at The Deen, and Tham and I had this little conversation …
Me: Hey hey, check out those girls there.
Me: There, those two with the black hair. One short and one long.
Tham: Oh yeah. Hmm, looks either Japanese or Korean.
Me: I think they are Korean.
Tham: How do you know? You can’t see their faces.
Me: Well, they don’t dance like Japanese girls.
Tham: What do you mean?
Me: With the exception of professionals, most Japanese girls do this little two-step that looks great in a para-para video but that’s all they do so it looks weird if the music is not for para-para.
Tham: Oh …
Me: Korean girls move and grind their hips more, so it fits with house or R&B music, you know?
Tham: Wow, you just blew my mind. You should blog this.
Here’s what para-para looks like.
And for comparison, here’s a compilation clip of a bunch of Korean girl-groups dancing.
Hey Tham, don’t say I don’t anything for you man! But hey, I had fun looking for these clips too. They are so awesome. Hahah!
