Shakira, Dancing with the Stars & Korean Drums

Shakira made an appearance on Dancing with the Stars last week — a very odd combination, with ballroom dancing, Shakira’s non-ballroom dancing, hip shaking dancing, and the weirdest “backup dancers”… Korean drummers! Has anyone seen such shiny han-bok? I guess they went glitzy for TV!

Korean drums are really striking during performance, although I don’t like how these women were in the background for this one. If you look towards the end of the clip, you see Shakira drumming alongside the ladies. It’s sorta funny to see them do choreographed movements to pop music, (alonside Shakira, nonetheless), but glad to see the public exposed to the wonderful Korean drummers.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About Jen

I’m a Korean-American living in the bay area, I studied public health and social work in grad school, and I have an obsession for anything theater related, especially ballet and Broadway musicals. I just spent three years in NYC so I am still adjusting to normal winter weather and having a car, and most of the time, I am busy funding my passion for theater with a full-time job in healthcare public relations. On any given day, you can find me watching Project Runway, shopping, doing yoga, skipping to the theater, or looking for the perfect cocktail.
