Jam Republic made waves when they appeared on the popular South Korean dance competition program Street Woman Fighter 2.
Through their impressive performances across their challenges, they demonstrated their unique talents and ended the show as runner-ups.
Sharing the same agency, dancers Kirsten, Latrice, Ling, Audrey, and Emma competed as the Jam Republic dance team on the show.
Each member came with an incredible background, having worked with some of the world’s top stars, including Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, and more recently, BTS‘s Jungkook, TXT, and more.
On the show, the group earned attention and praise for their fierce choreography, commanding stage presence, and effortless group chemistry.
Recently, leader Kirsten, sub-leader Latrice, and Audrey sat down with Bella from Korea Now for an exclusive interview, where they shared behind-the-scenes information about their appearance on Street Woman Fighter 2.
Host Bella wanted to know when the five members first began dancing together, and leader Kirsten shocked her when she admitted they had only met on the first day of filming for Street Woman Fighter 2.
I’m not sure if people do know, but slowly are learning that we actually met each other on the first day of filming… Some of us knew of each other, but it was kind of the first time that we had met each other.
Kirsten explained that the members were placed in a room and told, “Hey, you’re in a group now. Welcome to the show.”
Audrey further revealed that the first time she had ever seen her fellow members dance was the “No Respect” battle, which took place during the show’s second episode, further testament to their impressive chemistry and talents.
Latrice had discussed with fans how the members met a few days prior and confirmed how strong their bond was despite only knowing each other for a short period of time.
Fans shared their surprised reactions to the revelation.
