Younique Unit – Maxstep: Kpop Music Mondays

Wow! Totally didn’t expect this video to make it to the top of the KpopCharts. We’re totally surprised. MAX-STEP! If you haven’t seen Younique Unit’s “Maxstep,” check it out below:

Side note: if you have no idea why we’re saying “MAXSTEP” in whispers, you should check out our review of TVXQ’s “Keep Your Head Down”. That’ll explain things a bit more. You know, we really need to make a glossary of Eatyourkimchi inside jokes, so that we can initiate the uninitiated. Well, we’ve got a new version of our site about to go live in a few days, totally redesigned and less buggy, so hopefully we can add a glossary there, once it’s all good to go!

Anyhow, we didn’t really like this song. Our theory is that it’s not really meant to be a big SM song release, and more just background music to their dancing, as well as promotion for Hyundai, so we’re not really considering this a big release. Or…are we wrong? Are we gonna see more Younique Unit, like we’re supposed to see more Taetiseo (pronounced “TITTAYS” if you’re unaware)?

There’s an image issue we found with this video that we were a bit uncomfortable with. Mixed in with the dancing, there are shots of everyone looking just unhappy, angry and aggressive, punching at the screen, being pissed off, and breaking glass. There’s nothing really subtle or inviting about it. It’s meant to convey anger and power, meant to be like “we’re bloody awesome, I don’t give a fudge what you think” and that’s not the SM that I like. I’m more fond of happy and seductive SM rather than I’m gonna kick your puppy because I feel like it SM. You know?

Ok, enough about the song; let’s talk about the dancing. Now, we’re by no means experts in dancing. Nor are we novices in dancing. We’re barely even competent in dancing. Walking’s tough enough as is. But we did look at this video frame by frame to try to see how everyone was dancing. What we noticed is that Taemin looks like the best dancer in the group. Like, overwhelmingly so. He jumps higher, bends his knees more, his movements snap. He looks like he’s always in perfect form, while everyone else looks like they’re just doing the movements. Are we wrong here? Maybe he’s the worst dancer, and he’s too exaggerated and should look more lax like the other members? This is where our lack of knowledge of dancing is apparent. From our perspective, though, it just seems like there’s a lot more movement in Taemin’s movement, and that looks like better dancing, to us.

Yeah! That’s it for this week’s Kpop Music Monday. Let us know if you agree with what we’re saying or not. Also, some news: tomorrow we’re gonna be posting the Block B interview. Finally! So check in tomorrow afternoon, Korean time! Also, we’ll be studio hunting tomorrow afternoon as well. Saw some cool places in Hongdae and we’re really hopeful! This might be the Nasty Studio! And, lastly check out this week’s blooper reel, which felt like they were longer than our actual Music Monday itself. Probably because we had so many skits :D

  1. I was surprised when I looked up Younique because I had never heard of them before, and I found that they did indeed have a female member in what I thought an all boys band. It doesn’t mean I don’t like them, but I thought it interesting. I think they have good voices personally, and I think they’ll do better in the future.

  2. I like how Hyo has something that is her own since she doesn’t get as much attention as the other SNSD members. && MAXXXXXX. WHY WASN’T ANYONE FROM DBSK IN THIS D=

  4. I actually thought that BoA Would be in the group since it is a dance unit. BUT… Max Step w/o Max would be wrong. SOO… I definitely think that Max should be in the one in it

  5. My thoguhts were pretty much the same as you guys when Hyoyeon entered the dance. I mean, if they wanted her in it, they should have had her in it from the beginning. It makes better sense and I’m pretty sure it would’ve been fair, since they put out teaser photos of her being in the video.
    I thought maxstep was suppoesed to be SM’s version of Dubstep. I dunno, it was the step thing….
    I vote Max. Mostly because I think his voice would fit the song. It would blend in perfectly…

    4 years ago
  6. I seriously like this song, and cannot figure out why! Something is making it stick into my head…

    And as usual, Taemin definitely reigns as the dance king in this video. It’s like what you guys said, talent plus gift makes an awesome dance package (love him!). Taemin also stole Jonghyun’s part from Lucifer, and didn’t get nearly as cool a car. As for who should have been included, I think Max. Or Taemin can loan his Doritos to him for yummy projectiles.

    Never laughed so hard before when you guys did that sketch. XD

    Didn’t really like Hyoyeon’s part at the end, but in her defense it’s because it’s awkwardly put in. Had she been there from the beginning it probably wouldn’t have grated on me so much.

  7. As expected another awesome review from you guys :) personally I feel the same way Martina feels. In my opinion I think Taemin really got into the dance while the others were probably tired from having to run through it so many times (once again this is just my opinion guys and I completely love everyone in Younique Unit) anyway I personally wished they would’ve put Chen in it XD but if I had to pick I’d say BoA :)

  8. Taemin…so gifted, he’s crispy.

  9. I agree with a few people who’ve mentioned this: I think this worked better in it’s original form. I was really excited when I first saw this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3a3x0HXxDNI

    I love the concept of putting all the dance machines together. I hope they release more dances imeansongs ^_^.

    I vote boa for co-ed. Hyoyeon did a good job and It’s cool that she got to feature (boa does all the time, being a solo act) but she didn’t sit as low in her stance as the other members and her moves weren’t as full (more typical girl-group style). I think boa could have done a good job of this. fx don’t seem to have a ‘dance machine’ but they’d be cool.

    If we weren’t restricted to SM here I’d totally vote for Jia! XD

    Jia/Taemin/Kai. Awesome.

  13. BoA has her own song for this whole Hyundai promotion right? I could be wrong but that would be a lot on her plate to have the song, be in the dance group and then her own actual career.

  16. As much as I would want to see both of them here, as well as Luna too, since she is also a great singer and dancer, I would have to go with Max, because how can you have MAXSTEP without Max and his MAXTIME? Also I thought it would be cool to have Max and Henry hit those high notes together (which btw, I didn’t know Henry could even reach those notes)

    4 years ago
  17. What’s up with the brow-less trend, Hyuna and now Taemin?! Henry is in there for Max-screams. I love your tae-step sombrero-dorito skit, simply hilarious!

  18. There is something I like about this song but probably wouldn’t own if that makes any sense. I like the song but I’m way, way passed the dub-step sound and that weird intro and sound for Hyoyeon in the middle of the song, but I do really enjoy her voice through out the rest of the song. OMG I have the sleepy writings. Okay so I wrap up by saying what really want to say. 1) YAY! Henry is being utilized! I just recently found him and found him adorable 2) I really love this mean rough tough look on Taemin. It is the first time I have found him to be manly looking. Not meaning any offense in saying that, just that he is usually kind of cutesy/feminine/boyish. In Younique he seems so much more manly to me for the first time.

  26. I have a background in dance and it’s STILL difficult for me to pick who was the best all around in this video. There isn’t really a highlight in the choreo that I can focus on, and the light clothes/light backdrop or dark clothes/dark backdrop make it harder to see the moves of the ones not dancing in front ><. I think I'd have to go with Eunhyuk and Taemin as being the two that stood out the most.

  27. Specialist HY!!! Hahahahaha best skits ever – I give you props for finding stuff to talk about from that video lol. Btw I didn’t get the Purple Line thing. :(

  28. you know whats annoying (and this can never be solved) but I really like these dance units cause they do some cool stuff.. But videos for dance songs are always so choppy like they flash around too much so its hard to see each person do the dance.. I wish they’d make a version where its just them dancing …kinda like the when other bands do a dance version of a theatrical mv.. idk if that made sense..lol but i like this group and i think id like to see the choreography more..

  29. You have created me new fave compliment. “Whoa check those guys moves…he so so…Crispy…super Crispy…rawr.”

  30. Oh jeez, haven’t been able to get on here for a week? Two? I don’t even know lol. So far behind on videos! But, I’m happy to see the Block B interview will be coming up soon (so excited and desperate to see thisXD

    So, this song, I like the music. I’d totally listen to it on its own…but I don’t quite like the singing being added to it. It just sounds weird. My favorite part is Henry’s little English part and Kai with his deep voice.
    Hyoyeon felt like an after thought to me, like she was thrown in there just for a little diversity or something. I don’t know, it was just weird to me.
    Dancing wise, though I’m not an expert, this is just my own personal opinion, Taemin is very sharp in his movements. But when put with the others it feels awkward. While he was moving sharply the others had a more fluidity to the moves and felt like they were on the same page. It left things looking awkward to me when you could clearly see the difference in dancing styles. But overall, the dancing is still amazing.

    I’d just like to throw in that I enjoyed the fact that they added Henry and Luhan in this group because their groups work in China. It is nice seeing them in the spotlight.

    As for who I think should’ve been in this, I’d have to say Max!

  35. I thought this group wasn’t supposed to be a group to begin with it was supposed to be for a car commercial That’s what almost all the reviews and feed back say on the on the internet. From what i know Maxstep is like a type of a car. The video was supposed to be sort of like Big Bang’s – lollipop. With out all the color. I don’t like who they picked for the girl plus even thought she is in there they could have gave her more of part they some random cameo. My fav in the whole song is eun hyuk.

  38. I’m surprised they didn’t comment on Kai’s gold bars chair and Eunhyuk & henry’s eskimo clothes… lol

    oh, and I want BoA in the group… but I think she’s too “legend” to be put in a group with juniors

    4 years ago
  39. For informational purposes (and I hope this doesn’t rock the vote, if it gets bumped up enough that people see it)

    The Younique Unit has 2 members which are not in the dance group, BoA and Jessica. There are 3 songs on the album. Each of the songs features one of the girls, but the others actually seem to be solos, and have no MV.

    4 years ago
  40. i see each one has their uniqueness while dancing, and that makes this coreography kind of messy. i really love Taemin, but i cant distinguish them, blame their dark clothes on dark background and their white ones on the white SM cube room agggg this is the one big time I hate the boxes more than ever coz i cant distinguish anything T.T
    I think they needed another girl so I vote for Boa, but boa is another level i think (i dont mean she is better but she is, i cant imagine her with idols lol)

  41. Max totally should have been in this group! when i heard this song i immediately thought that Max should be in here! *MAX TIME!*

  42. BOA

  43. yep yep of course, Taemin is undoubtedly the best. ANd not only is he mmmmn crispy but also his movements just flow like hes not even trying. The others look like they’re dancing, Taemin looks like he’s just…I don’t know the word, but he’s definitely gifted!! And BoA should have been included because, like Taemin, when she dances it’s just so smooth, natural and full of finesse.

    4 years ago
  44. Awsome dance, but the song sucks.. Adn if it dancing I woul like to see BoA! she is a badass sexy dancer!!! OR why don’t SM make another dance group unit… with only GIRLS and the specialist can be Yunho from dbsk ;) I think that is a golden idea =)
    what do you guys think???

  47. As I commented on your Facebook page :
    Taemin, your moves the best! You got a talent and a gift in dancing!!!

    I vote for BoA, because if Max was part of the mv he would be “Maxtime~ maxtime~ maxtime~” the lights would flicker on and off so nothing would be recorded XD

    Also, Simon and Martina thanks for reviewing this mv.

    4 years ago
  48. My vote goes for Max. Song feels kinda incomplete without him and Max Time, though, to be honest, I was really expecting Yunho to be a part of the group. Anyway.

  49. i think if Max was in it, it would make the song about him.. but yea, i think Yunho or BoA should have been in it.. even maybe an Fx member too..

  51. This comment is made of pure win XDDD
    I was expecting more of the video cuz they’re the best dancers in SM groups and all, but it was just okay. They should have added Max into the mix. You can’t have a song called Maxstep and have flashing lights without Max. It’s unthinkable!

  54. I have to admit that this song and video were pretty generic SM stuff, and it’s a video that I watched once and will probably never watch again because it wasn’t exciting. And I’ll probably never listen to the song again because it was nothing catchy or special and was waaaaayyy too dubstep. Sorry Younique Unit, maybe it was stupid of me to expect something “unique” /:

  56. Taemins movements are sharp but good dancing is always about sharp movements. Eunhyuk and Henry have a fluidity to their moves that shows flows well with the choreography as they executed each transition into every formation.

    • I honestly thought those three were the best, dancing wise. Kai had his moments and the other one, Luhan? i think, was slightly weaker in comparison.

  57. WHERE WAS YUNHO?

  58. also, i felt bad about the bag of doritos flying around the room.. would’ve fed a whole Taemin with that..

    4 years ago
  59. I Iike that Hyoyeon is the only female i feel like it draws more attention to her than if she had other females to compete with. If they were to place Boa in with her then i would honestly only pay attention to boa. This is kind of Hyoyeon’s time to shine,without the other GG members and make an independent image. I do agree with Martina though about it seeming as though she was only featured in the video and not part of the group so i hope they give her more parts and or longer parts in songs to come. Changmin does need to join though!

    4 years ago
  60. I really love it that Hyoyeon got her spotlight as the only girl!!.. so i wouldn’t want boa there.. Maybe Max.. but since Yunho is a better dancer imo, i think maybe he should’ve taken part :PP Taemin’s awesome!

    4 years ago
  61. i really want Doritos now…

  62. Thank goodness I’m not the only one who disliked this song.
    I was afraid to mention my opinion because even if I just thought bad things about the song, I was attacked by a horde of SM fanpeople. I understand being a fan, but at the same time, it’s okay to be critical. I mean, I absolutely adore Kai, he’s my favorite member of EXO-K, but the scream he does near the beginning makes me cringe.
    What I’m trying to say is, it’s okay not to like everything ever made by an artist. It doesn’t make you a lesser fan, so please, don’t kill me.

    And my vote goes to BoA. Younique needed way more girl power than just Hyoyeon.

    4 years ago
  63. First, I want to say that if SM was trying to promote the dancing capability of this group they should not have dressed them in clothing that blends into the background. It make it difficult to see the foot work, how in unison the members are, and, quite frankly, it hurts my eyes. Now for my vote: I think BoA should have been included. Max is a great singer and his dancing has improved over the years, but lets face it people, he is not the best Kpop dancer. BoA on the other hand is female, has attitude that fits the group image and is a very good dancer.

    4 years ago
    • BoA is pretty much the Queen of K-pop, but I don’t think Hyoyeon was such a bad choice either. This song and its style has a fairly sharp edge to it and while BoA would have no problem pulling off the dancing or singing, I feel that she has a softer image than Hyoyeon in the sense that Hyoyeon’s facial features give you the feeling that she could be intimidating and her voice is more cutting. BoA’s looks are more like a good girl deception: she looks like a sweet girl, but can just as easily seduce someone. Also, her voice is more melodic and has a rounder sound.

      4 years ago
    • Totally agree with you. Boa should have been in the group, and if not her for some reason like her work load would be just too much for her- which is understandable- then they should have chosen another girl, instead of adding two EXO members they could’ve fit another girl in there. It isn’t like they have a short supply of girls to choose from either.

      And the thing with the blending into the background. It’s just not this video either. SM seems to think using bright lights, pale backgrounds and clothes that just melt in with the backgrounds so the idols heads float- even then, it’s really hard to tell sometimes- looks good, when it obviously doesn’t. I think it’s because of the different beauty standards/ likes in Korea. Cause in Korea, they think pale/ whiter skin is beautiful, right? So, by bleaching out any definition or colour, I think SM thinks they’re making their idols look as beautiful as possible for the fans. Or is that just me? Anyway, it’s really annoying. It’s the same with f(x)’s ‘Electric Shock’, one scene (that was repeated throughout) was really white. Though, not as bad as GG’s ‘Flower Power’ japanese video.

      4 years ago
      • Or–having such setups make it easier to hide when they are NOT in sync? (Not being mean!) I never noticed the differences in dance movements until S&M slowed some clips down to look at Taemin. I mean, their schedules are crazy, so I wonder just how much rehearsal time they had to do this.

        4 years ago
    • “First, I want to say that if SM was trying to promote the dancing capability of this group they should not have dressed them in clothing that blends into the background. It make it difficult to see the foot work, how in unison the members are, and, quite frankly, it hurts my eyes.” I completely agree with this it was difficult to follow the dancing carefully.

      4 years ago
    • Sorry I didn’t explain something. The reason it is important that BoA is female is because it would add more balance/dynamic to the group.

      4 years ago
  64. I don’t know if Taemin is the best dancer here, but he is the most well-rounded when it comes to both great singing and great dancing~

  65. I wasn’t surprised that they didn’t put BoA in this unit. To me she’s always been a solo act, it would’ve really surprised me if the would have been in this group. Somehow I couldn’t picture her in a group like this. I don’t want to offend anyone, but I think there’s a reason why some people get to be solo acts and others are put into groups. And I think that BoA might have take all the attention from the other members of this unit, because she’s super popular (not that the others aren’t but she’s known as the Queen of Kpop, I think). I’m not really sure who really sells more records, but it always seemed to me like BoA is a few steps ahead of her juniors in this department.

    Despite that I’m super happy that Hyoyeon got to be in this sub unit, she really deserved the attention as did Henry. I’m not a super-Super Junior fan, but after Hangeng left it was like SuJu M kinda had to go on hiatus, and while the regular SuJu members still had their shows (and Zhou Mi was an MC for a while??) it seemed like Henry almost fell into oblivion. I hope that this sub unit will be doing more songs in the future, and that Henry might get the chance to be on TV more often. :)

  66. I was hoping that this would be reviewed but forgot all about it after the middle of next week, what a nice surprise on Monday morning! Here are my 20 cents :).

    — I seriously adore the trouble that Martina has with words sometimes, and Simon helping her out. So so so cute. If you guys weren’t married I would totally ship you.
    — The theme songs to eyk videos are totally my jams. I rock out every time I hear one.
    — I looooove the sound effects you guys use!! Especially to cover up cursing :D. My fave though was the gunshot when Specialist HY threw the ranch cap on the ground.
    — I feel like a huge dumdum but I don’t get the captain purple line reference @_@. I’ve said it out loud like 15 times and still don’t get it… /notapartofthecoolkidsclub :(

    Now on to the MV itself:
    — I’ve probably watched this video 20 times -first off I had to watch it once through for each member (xD), and then after that I had to watch it another 5 times each for Eunhyuk and Taemin- and I can honestly say…. this song sucks teh big one! It worked just great in its original form (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWBaVKDG314), as a short little dance track to showcase Kai, Taemin, and Eunhyuk, but it’s really all over the place as a full song. I like certain parts of it and of course I love all of the singing/rapping from the boys, but the song itself is just not one that I want to listen to more than a couple times. For those who are curious, the original original for this song (a sweet electronic track by Outism) can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlwM4UOzgEg
    — I didn’t really like the way that they handled Hyoyeon’s part in this song. I felt like her rap came out of nowhere and honestly kinda sucked (though not her fault, I just felt… jolted around while I listened to it?). That aside, I really am not big on girl groups and don’t pay a bit of attention to SNSD – but when she showed up at 2:27 I had a hard time looking at anybody else after that. Not sure if you can chalk it up to Hyo’s flaming charisma or good editing, but the point still stands either way.
    — What did they do to Taeminnie’s eyebrows :(((. Where did they go?? Someone please find them.
    — Hyukjae looks SO BOSS in this video, dear god. He looks amazing in red, and his rap… TAT /fangirling
    — Henry looks like an adorable little hamster doing that scream… I think it’s supposed to be badass but I can’t help but squee from cuteness every time I see it.

    • For Captain purple line I think it just has to do with the song Purple Line from DBSK in wich Yoochun (i think) says : ‘I really wanna touch myself’

      Taemin’s eyebrows eloped with Hyuna’s eyebrows from the Gangnam Style MV.

  69. There is definitely something extra awesome about Taemin’s dancing.

    The other members of Shinee have actually said that he messes up more than anyone else in dancing, but he looks so natural with his mistakes that it ends up looking like everyone *else* is doing it wrong. It’s possible that’s part of what’s going on here (like that arm swinging thing – it may not have even been intended as a boxing move, but taeminnie decides to do it that way so too bad for you if you’re doing it “right”).

    Also in some of the “three taemins” videos (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABmAiqhvmCA), you can clearly see him do something totally made-up at some spots, and magically not lose his place in the rest of the dance – he goes right back into the correct choreo. The dude is made of magic.

    The others really are all fantastic dancers, though. As I said in the kpop charts comment thread for this, I love dubstep, most of my favorite groups are SM, and most of my favorite members are lead dancers… If I ever get to see this performed live with all members, I might die.

    • As he does something random in the same spot each time, it’s probably just his little solo moment XD.

      • I must confirm this. I didn’t know much about kpop when I went to my first SM concert, so I didn’t have preconceived ideas on how every idol would/should act. I found Taemin amazing. His dancing is amazing and he appears so manly, very different from the maknae we’re so used to gush on.

  70. So I have a good theory on why these members for the younique group and NOT BOA and Yunho

    This unit was obviously made to give spotlight to the “best” dancers of each of SM’s groups. Since BOA is a solo artist, she always get all attention when on stage, she doesn’t have to split her focus between other members because she is solo.

    In Yunho’s case, he is in a TWO member group where he gets AT LEAST 50% of the focus in all their promotions.

    Because they are able to demonstrate their skills on a regular basis (BOA and Yunho) it would be unfair to the other Younique members if they were put in this group.

    Another theory I have regarding why give “specialist H.Y.” Hyoyeon only very little screen time is because if this unit was to give every dancer equal front line opportunity/ focus time it would be unfair to have Hyo’ since the beginning. I mean seriously, although I am a BIG EXO lover, at the moment she comes in all my attention is directed to her because she is the only female. The choreographer did a very good job to keep the dancers switching positions so they got a fair amount of focus in the center but with Hyo, no matter where she was placed, my attention automatically followed because she stood out being a female and having long bright blonde hair =D

    What I can’t explain is why not have another girl from F(x)?

    And why pick Luhan? Why not Lay? or Xiumin? or Dancing Machine Chen? ;p
    **************************************************************************************************
    Overall I love this song and SM did great in putting these members together in group because then they automatically have a SUPER large fanbase bringing ELFs, Shawols, SONEs and Exotics together =)

  77. i noticed that Taemin was more on his A game then the others too. Eunhyuk, Taemin, and Kai are my three top dance biases in SM and i can’t look away when they are dancing so when you put them in one group i didn’t know where to look at first……that is until Taemin just completely pulled my attention.

    His moves are much sharper and cleaner than the others, but i don’t know who the choreographer was (i’m pretty sure it was Gregg but i could be wrong) or how the original choreography was done (there isn’t a video of the choreographer doing the routine) so i’m not sure if he was supposed to be that sharp.

    they aren’t really an official group so i wouldn’t expect their dance to be completely in sync with one another. (World & Asian tours/flying to a different place twice a week for some. I’m not sure how many times everyone was in the same place at the same time.
    all i know is i want a practice video sooooo badly

    As for dancing in the video, I would like to say that the best are Taemin and Kai, I can’t take my eyes off of them, they are extremely good in dancing. The other guys are also really good, but Taemin and Kai do every step stronger, faster, sharper, but at the same time they don’t look like they are trying too hard. And I also think that Heoyon did great job! She wasn’t any worse than any guy in the video!
    SM should have include MAX!!! And one of f(x) girls :))

    About the song, I agree with you guys. The song has nice dance moves and vocalists but you can’t really follow up the lyrics… I actually felt a bit uncomfortable as well listening to it…especially after 0:51 (that big robot reminded me of a golem …. so yeah… – . -‘).

  87. In regards to the dancing, I found after really studying SJ-M’s Perfection that what it comes down to is the different styles of dancing that the members are better at.
    Taemin and Hyuk are the snap style dancers (and Taemin is better than Hyuk at it. Probably because he’s younger. Old man Hyukkie <3 [sidenote: i'm the same age as him. we're old])
    I don't know about the EXO members because I'm not a stan of theirs, but I am of Henry.
    Henry dances like Gumby. You remember Gumby, right? The big green guy made out of rubber. He's just so squishy that everything he does just. … is rubber. He's Gumby!

    In regards to Hyoyeon I didn't like that she wasn't there to the very end :( even though she sang every chorus. She's still gorgeous though~

    And lastly! Maxstep. The song was originally called Dubstep and was featured in SM Orchestra http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgrQLycG4ho < video here, back at the end of 2011. Henry was in that too~ Playing his violin like a boss. …
    ANYWAY Dubstep was featured there with Hyuk, Taemin and Kai dancing. And I personally liked the vocals of that better than the re-make for Maxstep.

    Well. That's my statement. I love that Memmer's was just chillin' on the chair there too. ^^ Such a cute kitty.
    OH And Martina makes a very good Hyoyeon~ The high pony really worked for you~

    • Totally agree with you about Hyukie, Taemin, and Henry’s style of dancing.

      Henry’s is way more fluid than everyone’s which maybe makes it seem that he is being lazy and not hitting the moves as sharp as he should. But seriously his flexibility is no joke and he moves like he has rollers on his feet.

      Taemin’s style is sharp and hitting the dance moves like boom, boom, bap. Makes it look a bit more powerful.

      Hyukie is somewhere in between the two. He can actually do both really fluid or really sharp. I’ve seen him switch between the two styles flawlessly too.

      I can’t comment on the others cause I pretty much know absolutely nothing about them.

I can’t desribe it….even now he is not even my bias maybe even my last favorite in SHINee but still his body moves amazing. Oh and BoA! She is an amazing dancer. Actually she and Stephanie are the best female dancers of SM. I’m not biased actually all the members of The Grace are amazing dancers and vocalists

  93. I completely agree with you that Taemin’s dancing was the best. His dancing really stood out from the other members and looked less “forced” or awkward if you know what I mean. He has this naturalness to his dancing that the other members didn’t seem to have. (I’m not hating on the other members though! I love them all!)
    And I agree with a lot of people here that I’m so happy Henry was in the group! Our talented Mochi needed more recognition, so I hope this helped with that.

    I took another look, didn’t go frame by frame or anything, but it did look like Taemin was pretty awesome :) I would need to watch it a few more times and watch some fo the others as well to say if I agree if he is better or not. But he is definitely very skilled, for sure.

    And as everyone else is saying, I love how they put Henry in this! Cause I’ve never really seen or noticed him in anything particular, so I’m not very familiar with him specifically, other than knowing he is in Super Junior, Lol. So yer, I like that I kinda got to see him a little more by his-self-ish (?) xD

    And, awesome K-Pop Music Monday guys! I was kinda disapointed when this came in first cause I was like, ‘Is there realy anything to talk about for this video other than “MAXstep!”?’ But you guys did an awesome job, and it was a great Music Monday! :D

  100. Eunhyuk, Kai and Taemin has performed with choreography for Maxstep, but not the whole. From Gayo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCSBQtJs0hc&feature=related -> 3:19, and the practice version here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkY04B9wgo4 (instead of Taemin, Greg – trainer). Dubstep, dubstep, dubstep ~ (yeah, Maxstep is really stupid name) Perhaps they thought that if they had awesome song to perform, it can be converted into a song for the ad – because why bother with the composition of something new? Oh, SM, I’m disappointed. In particular, you can not see the choreography on this white background :/

    And I think BoA should be in the Younique Unit. As a regular dancer, not a guest like Hyoyeon.

  107. Yeah, I’m pretty surprised but yet not that Maxstep made it to the top. I mean, you’ve got a great mix of popular members. It rose pretty quickly when it was first added, but stayed in sixth place for a long time, so I was like, “Oh I guess I wrong.” Now it’s like, I guess I was wrong about being…wrong lol.

    I would have to agree with Martina on Taemin being the crispiest. XD I mean, Eunhyuk is SJ’s dancing machine. Kai is classically trained in ballet and jazz dance. I was a little surprised that SM chose Luhan to be a part of Maxstep, considering Lay is the main dancer in EXO-M. But he stood in for Minho during SHINee’s “Lucifer” performances at SMTown concerts and was chosen to dance with BoA, so he must be pretty good. As for Henry and Hyoyeon, I haven’t paid much attention to SJ-M or SNSD so I can’t really say much about them other than what I saw in Maxstep. But out of all of these crazy talented people in this video, Taemin was the cleanest. uvu

    Also, um, the song is called MAXstep. I would think that an obvious choice for the group would be MAX. I mean he would be my first choice lol. So I vote Max!

  108. Lol Purple Line!!! Woot! And did I detect an “I really want to touch myself” reference in there? Nice work~ ;D

    I agree, Taemin is AMAZING. I’m torn between him and Kai when it comes to the dance, they both blow my mind~ Eunhyuk, Hyoyeon, and Luhan were pretty good too. Henry… I get that they included him for his vocals, and he isn’t bad, really, but he’s not up to par with the rest… imo.

    I love love love the Maxstep skit. I always think of Changmin too. xD

    I vote for… idk! Umm… I would say Yunho if he was a choice, and I was mad he wasn’t in the video. Come on, SM!!! And I love Changmin to death, and his voice would be so good in this song, but his dancing isn’t totally legendary. Well I guess BoA because seriously, she’s incredible. She and Yunho should’ve been here.

I do like Kai’s dancing from Exo-K, so I’m happy that they’re both in it, especially Taemin since I’m like in love with Shinee more than any other kpop group and love to watch Taemin dance, can’t help it, I could go on and on about Taemin’s dancing…lol!

    4 years ago
  111. I wanted more female presence in the song and dance as well. There’s just hardly any mixed group in Kpop and I think this is a minus. A mixed group is deffinetel more interesting than a all girls or boys one.

    On the other note, I don’t quite agree about Taemin being the best dancer here (and I’m a shawol mind you). Actually I hardly can compare between dancers because my eyes usally follow just one of them, I have hard time following all. But making an effort on this I didn’t distinguish Taemin as better.
    It’s clear that some of the members are better than the others (I’m scared to say any names) but I can’t decide among them. They just have totally different styles. Like Kai (the person sitting on the gold… things it called like that, right) is really powerfull and I can see him jumping higher for example. Eunhyuk’s dance always seems effortless which is a joy to the eye. Taemin is absolutely precise about his moves.
    I had fun monitoring these three during the practice video of Max step or (plus Yunho) dancing with Boa. And in the end I came to a conclusion that maybe Kai can work on his timing but other than that they are equally good. Maybe for a different styles of dancing (for example I liked Eunhyuk’s dance the best when he was with Boa because he portraited the emotion the best) but equal.
    Taemin is a great dancer, I respect him for that and am a little sad that he started to be more like a singer than a dancer in Shinee. I just don’t find my eyes watching him constantly, I guess…

    • I totally agree with all of your points here ^^ (and also a shawol, hehe). I really like the combination of all three dancers. I also liked Eunhyuk’s dance with BoA the best, it was very natural.

They give this fierce unf-ness that fits with the beat of the song. My only problem with them is that block out choreography and I can’t learn all the moves D:

    Taemin’s a good dancer here, I agree, but I wouldn’t say he’s superamazinglyawesome beyond the rest. His moves are fantastic, but I found myself watching Luhan and Eunhyuk a lot too. Especially at that punching move, because everyone else was doing sort of an underhand loop, so their arms would curve, and Taemin was basically horizontal. So I’d say you were right on both counts. Sometimes he was really sharp and crisp, but other times I personally thought he needed to relax just a bit.

    And why has this Captain Purple Line never showed up before? GENIUS! Best character idea ever! I wish I know how he would have explained T-ara’s YaYaYa lyrics. *crying*

    Max or Boa? …. ahhh, I think Boa is too iconic; she’s always been a solo act, it’d be weird to have her as part of a group. Also, it would take away from the “specialness” of HyoYeon as the only girl. So I guess ChangMin is my choice. He’s pretty awesome, but for an SM dance group, my first choice is obviously YUNHO! … but I think he and ChangMin were a bit busy at the time. ^_^

  131. I agree about Taemin’s dancing. When watching the video again I definitely noticed that his moves were the most sharp and defined. Not to say that the other were bad at all. Personally, I didn’t like the choreography. I thought that SM could have done something more interesting for a dance group. I didn’t like the song, either, so the only part I did like was the group’s members.

    I’d definitely choose BoA to join the group if she would do it rather than Max. Get some more girl power goin’ on~

    4 years ago
  132. So I have a good theory on why these members for the younique group and NOT BOA and Yunho

    This unit was obviously made to give spotlight to the “best” dancers of each of SM’s groups. Since BOA is a solo artist, she always get all attention when on stage, she doesn’t have to split her focus between other members because she is solo.

    In Yunho’s case, he is in a TWO member group where he gets AT LEAST 50% of the focus in all their promotions.

    Because they are able to demonstrate their skills on a regular basis (BOA and Yunho) it would be unfair to the other Younique members if they were put in this group.

    Another theory I have regarding why give “specialist H.Y.” Hyoyeon only very little screen time is because if this unit was to give every dancer equal front line opportunity/ focus time it would be unfair to have Hyo’ since the beginning. I mean seriously, although I am a BIG EXO lover, at the moment she comes in all my attention is directed to her because she is the only female. The choreographer did a very good job to keep the dancers switching positions so they got a fair amount of focus in the center but with Hyo, no matter where she was placed, my attention automatically followed because she stood out being a female and having long bright blonde hair =D

    What I can’t explain is why not have another girl from F(x)?

    And why pick Luhan? Why not Lay? or Xiumin? or Dancing Machine Chen? ;p

    Overall I love this song and SM did great in putting these members together in group because then they automatically have a SUPER large fanbase bringing ELFs, Shawols, SONEs and Exotics together =)

  138. Hmm.. I’m gonna take a shot at why maybe some of the other members are lacking in the dancing. Possibly the group was a little more rushed together and the choreo wasn’t shown in great detail like they usually are? I know from my dancing experience there are some dancers who just pick up choreo extremely quickly and are naturals (like taemin), while others need a bit more time to review and learn before they are capable to go full out with all their energy. (But this is just my personal opinion I honestly don’t know how long or how hard they practiced for the choreo and I think they are all superb dancers either way!! :D)

  139. I disagree with almost everything you said in this review. It’s the first time it happens though. But still I love your imagination and creativity. I always love watching your videos. I just do not agree at all this time

  140. speaking of dancing in SM, you HAVE to mention Yunho!!
    I was surprised when I didn’t find him, but I also kind of expected it because they are so busy with their comeback now.
    there’s still BoA, I was expecting to see her too :/! if it’s the song you want to make better, then Max or Changmin will do with his blow-minding screams

  141. I see Dalshabet! I vote BoA because Changmin can’t dance, he just pretends to.

  143. I vote for Boa. She’s the inspiration of SM. Without her, i don’t think SM would be what it is now. And Simon and Martina, i think your theme songs are totally dance worth. I actually do a little dance for your music Monday theme song :D

  144. Everyone in this song / music video are the best dancers from their own group. Its like SM is creating a dancing all-star unit. Maybe that is why SM is trying to show off their badass-ness. (But with a car company….omg Koreans please don’t drive badass too~ haha ><) Taemin, he is like a lighting bolt thrown by Zues. His movements are always sharp and lighting fast. Not to say he is the strongest dancer in this unit but his parts in this choreo are really "attractive" to people's eyes. But everyone still did great. Hope there will be a dance version release by SM so that we can really feel the total badass of this choreo! Muahaha!

  145. I agree Taemin was awesome in this. The other’s are really good dancers too but taemin stood out to me. I wish they would have let Hyoyeon dance throughout the video and not just that short scene at the end.

  146. i liked it, but i didn’t love it. It lacked anything different for a sub-unit in my opinion. i agree on the lack of any female dancers i would’ve liked to have seen that.

    It just seems a bit all over the place for me. There was nothing prominent that kinda stayed with me the second the video finished. The dancing was good, no faults there i mean it is a dance unit but maybe my expectations were too high? because i kinda didn’t see much different to what SM usually puts out in terms of choreography. Thats where i was a little disappointed with this release.

  147. I figured SM considered DBSK and BoA as legends instead of idols and that’s why they weren’t included in this sub-unit group. I’m glad Henry was included in this cause I wouldn’t have ever noticed him but I was disappointed in his dancing cause he was slacking on the moves a bit.

    • Yeah, we thought that might have been the case as well. This was meant to promote their not-as-popular groups, too.

    • i know this is an old post, but i’ve been rewatching the mv. Me being the loyal henry fan, i’ve looked at all the clips of him, and i noticed something….

      wasn’t the clip of him punching the screen with his “boxing gloves” the same as the one they used for the final scene at the end? :/ did anyone notice this????
      was it SM being lazy, or did henry’s punching just fit twice…LOL

  149. I never thought of taemin as crispy before but martina has shown me a whole new taemin. One that crunches when you step on him or shake the bag to hard. Oh wait sorry i got taemin confused with a dorito again…

  150. I actually really love this song! It’s more my style and I feel like Taemin is enjoying it a lot more….
    Soy un dorito comeback!! Absolutely loved it! :D I didn’t know there was no difference between doritos and shurikans >.<

  153. I agree with the comment about Taemin’s dancing. I’m no expert myself, but when I irst watched it, I couldn’t really take my eyes off him once they really got into the choreo. Mind you, Eunhyuk, Kai and Luhan are really good too, but I paid more attention to Taemin when possible.
