He has come up with a lot of the choreographies for the songs of BTS, ever since their debut, such as the one for “Danger.” And not only Son Seung-duk is capable of coming up with the choreography, but he can also stand in for a member who might be absent, like in the case of Suga when he was sick. At that time, during BTS’ practice, Suga had to be hospitalized and his position was filled by Son Seung-duk, so the members continued with the practice without missing a member.
Even though sometimes he doesn’t participate in the choreography, he is still involved in the dance process. As in BTS’ MV “Not Today” and “DNA,” Son Seung-duk’s name was included as supervisor of the choreography and appearance. He received an award from the Minister in Korea at the 2016 Popular Culture Arts Awards. He also became the first K-Pop choreographer to tour America with a workshop, there are also workshops in Europe, Asia, and Japan. Not only BTS received an award, but he also won an award as “The Style of This Year” award at the Gaon Chart Music Awards.
BTS’ most popular choreographies are the ones for the songs “DNA,” “Danger,” “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2,” “RUN,” “I Like It,” and “No More Dream.” The choreography of DNA is harder than any other dance, even members of BTS have admitted to it.
