1) I wish people understand that jhope as the 'dance leader' holds so much more importance than just being in the center. He's the one who teaches the choreo to the other members and instructs them, specifically the ones from keone which are sent via through videos (which is EXTREMELY difficult to learn through) Essentially he holds the balance. Professional dancers who are fans of keone have pointed out when watching the fire mv, that jhope was the best dancer - had the best body control etc -
2) and in general, the positions of all the members were balanced and just - right. You can’t deny how powerful his dance is, so you can’t help but be drawn to him anyway, hence holding that balance and making any mistakes members like jin or rapmon (who, btw are def decent dancers and have improved so much) less noticeable if ever they do make mistakes.
3) It just ticks me off when there have been some fans who have said the dance to not today wasn’t good just because hobi wasn’t in the center for most of it… that not only degrades the other members, but automatically undermines jhope as dance leader, since he’s the one (and ofc their dance teacher plays a big role too) who instructs, tutors, encourages and motivates the members on the choreo.
no honestly that’s exactly right! hoseok helps them learn the choreo, so if you’re saying the dance sucked just bc he wasn’t in the middle you’re basically undermining his ability as dance leader. but seriously just the arrogance of some people saying if hoseok isn’t in the middle then it’s a shit dance (and being completely serious) is the most disgusting thing ever. seriously why even be a fan of bts at all, if the other members are that ‘’’’’’awful’’’’’ to you?? it doesn’t make any sense, and it really fucking boils me. they all work really really hard at dancing, so who are you to say who / who doesn’t deserve to be in the center. praising your bias should not entail bashing the other members, it’s that simple
