Tiktok dance crazes have been around since the app’s inception. We’ve got Tiktok stars like Niana Guerrero making choreography that is even covered by K-pop idols. Some artists even make Tiktok dance challenges to make their songs go viral. But sometimes, all it takes to go viral on Tiktok is to match a well-known choreography with an equally well-loved song, as is the case of what people are dubbing “NewJeans Lustre.”
It’s a match
This new Tiktok dance challenge makes an old song revived with a new dance, with the choreography of “Hype Boy” by K-pop rising stars NewJeans (2022) danced to our president Nadine Lustre’s song “Paligoy-ligoy” from 2014! Surprisingly, the choreography matches the beat of the chorus perfectly.
The new dance challenge seems to have begun after P-pop girl group BINI’s Maloi posted a video of herself dancing “Hype Boy” to “Paligoy-ligoy.”
“May choreo pala [itong song ni Nadine],” she even joked in the caption.
@bini_maloi may choreo pala to #fyp #foryou #biniph #BINI ♬ Paligoy-Ligoy – From “Diary Ng Panget” – Nadine Lustre
Tiktok stars, influencers, and other netizens have jumped on the trend. Some have also edited clips of their K-pop idols dancing the choreo to the tune of “Paligoy-ligoy.”
Challengers aren’t limited to the Philippines, too. Because Tiktok users in South Korea have done it as well!
Would you jump in on this trend?
