BTS’s Jimin struggled with Butter’s choreography for Megan Stallion’s rap: ‘I could have done better’
BTS members J-Hope, Jimin and Jungkook, who are the dancers of the Korean group, gave fans a special performance to Butter’s remix. They were featured in a dance video where they danced to Megan Thee Stallion’s rap part in the song.
While the performance seemed effortless, a new behind-the-scenes video showed the members had to practice the part several times before they were satisfied with the result.
In the video, Jimin revealed that it was J-Hope’s idea to get the trio together for the dance. “The reason we did this dance is that it was Hoseok’s idea. “Wouldn’t it be nice to show ARMY this new side of us?” (He asked). I think that thought started. It’s been a long time since we’ve done such a difficult choreography. It’s been a while since the group’s dancers performed together. I think it’s been about four years since the last 3J meeting. So J-Hope asked Jungkook and me if we would like to do it and that’s how it all started,” he said.
As the three worked hard to deliver a flawless performance, Jimin said he found the choreography more difficult. “Jungkook and Hoseok did so well. It’s not the dance style I’m used to so it was difficult (for me). Even learning it was difficult. Jungkook did so well from the start. Even though I attended more training sessions, I still feel like I could have done better,” he said.
The video showed that at some point each member wanted to do the take again because they felt they could do much better. There were also several gaffes as J-Hope and Jungkook tried to get it right. Still, all’s well that ends well, and Jimin hopes the trio will reunite again for another performance.
Meanwhile, the boys skyrocketed again, as their collaboration with Coldplay, My Universe, took the top spot on the Billboard Top 100.
