TxT’s Yeonjun, who previously made it public that he likes BLACKPINK, recently selected their latest single Shut Down for his solo stage at SBS Gayo Daejun 2022. SBS Gayo Daejeon is an annual televised music festival that is broadcast by the Seoul Broadcasting System at the end of each year. The 23-year-old rapper and dancer has previously received attention for his enthusiastic and on-point dance covers of girl group songs.
His latest dance cover of the hit BLACKPINK song is quickly gaining a lot of attention on social media. Fans have reacted with comments like:
“This is how you do girl group covers, be feminine, move those hips, and give us sass!”
“I love the sass!! Couldn’t see Bp in music shows anymore, so happy that we can at least see covers”
“NOONE COME CLOSE TO HIM IN CASE OF GG COVERS I SAID NOONE”
“yeonjun always eating up gg choreos he’s really father idk”
“He did it without changing choreography nice”
“he got me jaw dropped.”
“His expressions, stage presence and dance moves everything is on point…he set the stage on fire”
“Did justice to the choreo by not adding the masculine moves. Killed it”
“don’t make me start stanning txt bc I just might after this”
“this is what a tribute and paying homage is. no filtrations of original choreography, just him being good with it as he dance like he once used to be blackpink member. yeonjun is the only male idol that could give justice to covering gg’s songs.”
“omg i don’t really into boy groups but i gagged for this, i don’t even stan him but it feels like i wanna stan him lol, he ate this and left no crumbs”
“Yeonjun was the only man for the job. No man could’ve done the choreo justice like he did”
In addition to Shut Down, Yeonjun also performed on ZOOM and Run BTS. JYP Entertainment’s Girl Group NMIXX also performed a cover of BLACKPINK‘s How You Like That.
