When it comes to BTS‘s J-Hope, it seems like there’s nothing he can’t do. Since debuting, J-Hope has cemented himself as a true all-rounder because he can rap, dance, sing, and is a true visual. He also has the sweetest personality, collaborating with other artists and helping them whenever possible.
Despite all this, J-Hope is definitely known for his dancing skills. For many, the idol’s diverse talent and skills make him one of the best dancers in the K-Pop industry according to many netizens.
Therefore, it wasn’t surprising when his amazing dancing was on show during his recent collaboration with artist Crush for the track “Rush Hour.” During the track, both Crush and J-Hope wowed netizens with their insane talents and undeniable chemistry.
Yet, even though J-Hope is collaborating with Crush, the idol has still found ways to incorporate his own music and that of BTS into the song.
When the video was released, many netizens on social media noticed some references to past choreography in the music video. During two moments in the video, J-Hope showcased his amazing dancing skills while rapping.
Many believe that the awesome moves looked very similar to the choreography seen in his collaboration track “Chicken Noodle Soup” with singer Becky G.
When it came to one of the moves he used in the freestyle section with Crush, ARMYs even saw a reference to the classic BTS song called “Mic Drop.” With the same arm actions and bright expressions, it isn’t surprising that ARMYs quickly found the similarities.
Many also believe that they saw references to J-Hope’s solo track “Just Dance” during the music video but just with the choreography sped up.
When people noticed, they couldn’t hide their excitement at all the references, some even included the likes of Jin’s “Super Tuna.”
