why r u bitter about ikyk stage
im glad you asked! also, this is going to be very long so i apologize~
it’s because mnet filmed/edited it like filth lol i was going to gif each stage and do like ‘key points’ or what i thought was key points from each stage but i can’t do that with ikyk stage because there’s not much to gif?
for starters, the choreo is supposed to start off like this;
nice right? how did mnet edit it?
i get that they want to get closeups for them but it just makes the trainees look like they’re running around the place. they even filmed it from far out when they could’ve done it closer and make it look nicer…
a lot of it is filmed from a side angle which really doesn’t make sense because you don’t watch a performance like that lol you watch it with your head straight and them in front of you. because of that angle, it makes the formation look messy and have the trainees in the front block those in the back.
hello everyone! but whats this?
where is moonbok? hyunbin? taedong? did they leave? no… they’re there but it’s filmed from the right coming in to the center and they didn’t show when it got to the center of the stage so they’re being blocked there. a lot of it is filmed like that so the members are being blocked which makes it look messy. its not the formation of the choreo bc in the gif above that it looks fine since the camera is not filming them from the side.
remember this screenshot?
it looks funny cause it looks like yehyun is trying to wave to the fans or something lmao but its not that! hes supposed to look like he’s pulling down those in front but the angle man…
you can’t see yehyun and you can barely see his hand.
there’s this part but the angle barely allows you to see it. i bet if i didn’t gif it you probably wouldn’t have noticed it.
i know its small things but think about it, if there’s only 3 key points of the dance and no small details it would be pretty boring and the only exciting part of the dance would be the key points. but since mnet didn’t show the small details properly its pretty much like they aren’t there.
the key point of the dance is the lil leprechaun jump. this is like the highlight of the dance but how was it filmed?
zoomed out… they filmed the highlight of the dance zoomed out and when they do zoom in its at a side angle so some of the trainees are being blocked. once again it’s not the formation of the dance because
if you just film it from the center it’ll be just fine…
when mnet DOES film it close up from the center? they cut it lol they only show one jump then cut to just half the trainees (id gif it but its too much).
the part where they swing their arms is another key point in the choreography but the angle they filmed it messed up the formation and made the trainees in the front block those behind. the formations is supposed to be like
except sunghyuk is in the back in stead of up front. each person behind the person in front is outwards a bit more so that they won’t be blocked but mnet filmed it like
you can’t see some of the trainees…
what really irks me is that every view counts for something. the trainees in this group are the lower ranked ones. im not sure of the others but donghan, hyunbin, yehyun, and moonbok are the last 4 in terms of ranks. the way its edited/filmed has an unnecessary amount of zooming in and zooming out to the point it can get a bit dizzy to watch and its just unfair sedwsedws how are they supposed to get views if mnet edits it and films it in such a way it doesnt give the full impression of the performance? and if less people watch it how would my boys get attention to go up in ranks if they don’t even get screentime on the show? :’(
