    While It’s You is a super popular song within the fandom (and for good reason) outside of it, it’s not very well known. It’s a shame since what the author said here is spot on – it is quite honestly their best work, best choreo, best song, best dance mv. Watching the MV is like watching art – all the members (even the not-so-good dancers) move so fluidly and with a dance which suits their song so well. It’s You would have been such a good direction to take the group but instead SM keeps giving Suju ‘SJ Funky’ stuff.

    • danahz

      I wish Suju 6jib is up to the quality of It’s You. The dance was unique. The walking around MV was great as well.

    • Streby

      I’m totally with you on this one. Its such a sensitive and brilliant song and I really wish SM would devote a little time to push these men towards this direction.

    It’s You is to date my favourite Super Junior MV! I like the song, choreography and the overall toned down mood of the MV.
    As for my favourite kpop MV it has got to be Infinite’s BTD!!! I just love everything about it–the song, the choreo(not just the Scorpion dance but the entire choreo), the gloomy feel of the MV and that just one set where they filmed the dancing. Simple but it has a very powerful and hypnotising effect. I never get tired of watching it over and over again…

    agree with taeyang.
    i actually like plots in my mvs instead of just dancing and closeups *coughSMcough*
    but when i saw his mv for where you at, i thought it was great!
    the thing that i can tell was that he has raw talent when dancing and it shows

  • itsmysunshine

    Ah “It’s You”. The one which has the best choreography I’ve ever seen from Super Junior (and also the one who keeps me wondering where have Heechul been for 3/4 of the dance). It’s such a pity that they don’t perform this quite often in their concerts. 

    I’d say every BoA’s dance MV is perfection. My favorite would be from her Japanese single, “Sweet Impact”. Slick movement ala Michael Jackson, and she pulled it off effortlessly.

    • black_rose45000

      It’s you would probably look empty rn what with so many members missing. If there was anytime that SJ’s large number of members had a point and purpose, I think it was It’s you, which made use of creativity in order to incorporate so many moves and different sequences for all the members, without being boring.
      Heechul is basically gone in Sorry Sorry too. I don’t understand how he doesn’t get bored to death while waiting for his part.

  • hapacalgirl

    While i did like BoA’s “eat you up” korean video, my hands down favorite dance video of hers is the one she did for her jpop single “eien” as it really showed just how capable and effortless a dancer she is. Eien also had some of the most intricate and fluid choreography I have seen from her in her 10+ years career that I have been a fan of hers (she is one of the few people who i have followed from debut to present). Taeyang’s video was also a favorite of mines as it was simple and showed what he could do as a dancer that i feel isnt really showcased in his group activities

    • Jasmyn Echols

       OMG That was the best dance video I have ever seen!!! She danced better than her boys XD

      • hapacalgirl

        Wasn’t it?! I am surprised that when people talk about her dancing ability they rarely talk about “Eien”. Of all her music since her debut (she debuted when I was beginning to get into kpop and I have had a soft spot for her since then) “Eien” probably showed just how capable and fluid a dancer she is the most. The dancing was so on point and intricate without looking forced. People in kpop just don’t dance like that, not even the talented male dancers.

        • Jasmyn Echols

          So true :( I wish some choreographer would come along in the Kpop industry and bring back that kind of dancing. A lot of the dancing nowadays is so mechanical.

  • http://www.michelle-chin.com/ Michelle Chin

    I actually squealed inwardly when you mentioned tvxq’s before u go. I felt that is it one of the better dance videos out there. 

    I think that dance plays a huge role in the popularity of kpop. and the dance videos are indeed a good option to mvs that have story line that does not make much sense. hehe. 

  • happy_slip

    It’s You is just on a whole different level for me. Like, I wouldn’t care if SME would do a gazillion Sorry Sorry’s if only they’d make and release something like this as well every time they’d come back.

    As for Taeyang’s Where U At, I loved the fact that it provided such a good break from GD’s Heartbreaker stuff at that time. The song, the dancing, the set was all him. The choreo and the way it was presented was just really good.

    kinda makes me miss 09 lol.

  • black_rose45000

    I remember SJ’s Why I like you had a nice choreography too, but it doesn’t count here since it had no pv. Though less complicated than It’s You, the choreography seemed to make good use of the members and the moves were well placed.

    I loved 2ne1’s Fire, I was surprised, at the end of it, how I hadn’t gotten bored just watching them dance around.

    I have eternal love for “It’s You.” Seriously Super Junior’s masterpiece, even though “Sorry Sorry” is the crown jewel in their discography. It’s such a shame that it’s so underrated yet almost universally loved by K-pop fans.

    SHINee’s dance music videos are amazing, especially the one that started it all for them: “Noona Neomu Yeppeo (Replay).” The choreography was smooth and slick, certainly less flashier than their later choreographies like “Lucifer,” but what made “Replay” click was that literally nobody else had a choreography like it. “Love Like Oxygen” was also great because it had such a Michael Jackson feel and great use of chairs. It was such a joy to watch debut days SHINee. :)

  • animasaurus

    Honestly, Super Junior’s 3rd Album is really good imo and their repackage song “It’s You” is their best song and one of my personal favorite kpop songs out there and I’m not even a huge fan of theirs. That and “Why I like you” are so good! I wish they would put out another “sorry sorry” album quality wise tbh although I know they won’t. The dance and mv is so nice~

    I pretty much love all of INFINITE’s mv’s especially dance wise (to me they are top notch). However, my favorite Dance MV is hands down teen top’s “no more perfume on you.” I loved all of the sets and it really delivered the fresh feeling of the song well while being really simple.

    • http://twitter.com/M_Wys Michaela Wylie

      So true. I think that SJ’s 3rd album is miles ahead of any of their others. MILES. I’ve actually listened to them all, and all the songs I liked were from the 3rd album. O.o

  • crv2

    Wow, almost all MVs above are my favorite..:D
    Taeyang’s mv is amazing. I recommend Only Look at Me too.
    Abracadabra has great choreography, I’m in love with Miryo and Gain.
    Suju It’s You is the one and only SJ MV in my playlist, and it is such a great MV.
    Last, how can Changmin says ‘slow down’ with that move, omo he kills me. LOL
    Great taste Antonia!

  • FallingSnow

    Excellent picks, Antonia. All the ones I would have picked as well. But your gentle and wiry commentary throughout the article just made everything funnier. Great writing :D 

  • FlipMango

    I quite agree with the fact that dancing is one of the reasons k-pop is so popular, it’s one of the reasons I got into it myself. Whenever any group releases a dance version or the MV features dancing, I like it :)

    Although I’m more of a ballad or R&B/Hip-hop type of girl, I have to say that Shinee’s dances always blow me away. Their Lucifer choreography…amazing. It’s not because they are necessarily difficult, but their synchronization and precision is awesome. I LOVVVEEE B.A.P.’s “Warrior” break down. My friends and I never get tired of watching it. I also like the dances for the Wonder Girls’ MVs. I know they aren’t known for their technicality, but their dances are so fun and it’s easy to dance along.

    God bless whoever took that screen cap. The “Before U Go” Dance MV is hands-down my favorite post-split TVXQ video. KYHD and the regular “Before U Go” were just so overdone they exhaust me to watch. And I want to take this time to ask why haven’t we seen more of Yunho in silk button-down shirts? ‘Cause clearly the man wears them well.

  • http://twitter.com/M_Wys Michaela Wylie

    The last paragraph made me LOL. xDD

  • Jgg55

    I just need to express my undying love for Super Junior’s “It’s You”. I dies for it. The song and the dance music video are just perfectly perfect. Super Junior’s best. One of K-pops best.

    I am strictly talking about the dance version of the music video here. The story version has really bad, after school special quality acting that makes me lol.

    Also, “Eat You Up” is so BAMF.

  • haiitsvi

    I just watched “It’s You” 1.5 times. I really miss this type of choreo from Super Junior. Their new stuff seems sloppy at times and “It’s You” is just perfection because sometimes small movements can make such a huge impact. I’m hoping their comeback single goes back to the good ole days.

    On a side note, I realized Heechul just saunters in the MV halfway through just in time for is part.

    • http://jeesu-s.tumblr.com/ Jeesus

      It’s You is the best from SJ imho. The song, the story MV, the dance, the looks, the emotion, it’s all great. And they’re still 13.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MMRQEZEPSNJ26LJ7XJNDDM5NCI JasmineA

      Yeah I noticed that too, I think he had a injury then so he couldn’t do the dance parts.

  • AcadiasFire

    All of Shinee’s choreo gets my attention cause its so good to look at and it makes me want to learn it. The same with U-Kiss who is my number one even though I have alot of favorites. Infinite never fails to dissapoint me. They are like one of the best of the best. Even though some people were dissapointed by The Chaser i loved it as well as the choreo for it. Teen Top is one of my favorites when it comes to choreo as well especially for the mv Going Crazy. The dance just looks so fun and the song was so addicting. Beasts Shock is one of my favorites from them and Block B’s Nalina and both of B.A.Ps mvs.

    TVXQ’S Before U Go dance MV and BEG’s Abracadabra (Stage ver) MV are two of the most played videos on my video playlist! :D

  • http://arbitrary-greay.livejournal.com/ Arbitrary_greay

    Shinee’s Magic Dance: the ultimate proof of the universality of dance. Just look it up on Youtube, some of the pairings are really hilarious, like the Pokemon theme song.

    I’ve never been a TVXQ fan but damn…I think I just became one lol. I’ve never seen this video because honestly aside from Shinee, Im not a big SM fan but I like this. I honestly think SM has many talented artist it’s just that I feel that they use them all wrong at times lol.

       welcome to the family that ship long legs. TVXQ that is :D

  • http://yesbabyohyea.blogspot.com/ Allison Nakamura

    i love the addition of tvxq’s before u go here lol abracadabra dance ver is my fave because it’s just so classic and amazingly well-choreographed. i like it so much when ga-in starts to dance her iconic solo part. i like infinite’s dashi dorawa better than BTD (although i’m not a fan of the group) and SJ’s it’s you just nailed it to my heart so badly. the dance ver showcased the whole members. why is wrong number dance ver not mentioned? i think it’s pretty nice and decent and it’s kinda being a starter of a good dance mv which shot nicely and executed perfectly along with the amazing leg movements of the boys.

  • appleofjacks

    I friggin’ loved the choreography of Super Junior’s “It’s You”.  It was the song that made me fall in love with these boys. I agree with the whole “box” analogy as well. SM needs to understand that you don’t need fancy props and sets to make the choreography look sophisticated. Sometimes simplicity is all you need. It worked for that video and – guh – I effin’ love that video.

    Majority of Infinite’s dances are great, and there are also quite a number of good solo dancers out there in kpop.
