Skillful Since Pre-Debut
Before she joined Source Music Label and debuted with GFriend, SinB and another GFriend member, Eunha, used to be Big Hit Entertainment trainees for 4 years, before Big Hit cut their female trainees.
According to other trainees, SinB had already been well-known for her dancing skills. Here are some compilations of her dancing before she debuted with GFriend.
The video above shows SinB’s pre-debut dancing of when she attended the Beat On Pop Dance Studio Academy. As you can see, SinB’s dancing skills had already been well-developed even before her official debut, especially her freestyle dance. She dances powerfully in any style of dance, and she achieves perfect scores additionally with her expression and her confidence.
And here is a short video of her right before she debuted as a member of GFriend. SinB and Umji do the freestyle on the song “Lil Mama” by G-Slide.
During GFRIEND’s Performance and Dance Break
Here are some fancam compilations of SinB’s performances:
From the fancam of SinB’s performances, it is quite evident that SinB is rightfully called the main dancer of GFriend. From her performance of “Navillera” to the latest one of “Fever,” she has been continually demonstrating her progress in dancing. Netizens said that SinB can make the difficult choreography look easy and pleasant to enjoy.
And here are some dance break compilations of GFriend; many people have said that GFriend has the best dance breaks ever among all the girl groups. And look how SinB is killing the dance break.
Perfect Dance Cover
On several occasions, SinB had an opportunity to do dance cover collaborations with several dancers from other girl groups. On December 29th, 2016, SinB and another 4 members of girl groups performed at the year-end music festival at the KBS titled Gayo Daechukje 2016.
The 4 members are Seulgi from Red Velvet, Momo from TWICE, Youjung ex-IOI (now Weki-Meki) and Chungha ex-IOI (now a solo artist). They covered “Be Mine” from the boy group INFINITE. Although it’s a boy group song, their performance of the song was great.
When performing this song, the five of them showed their “girl crush” side that had never been seen by fans before. Especially SinB, because her group is mostly using cute and innocent concepts.
And the video above is proof that SinB can keep up with the main dancers from other famous girl groups from well-known agencies.
And the recent one, on June 15th, 2019, M2’s Studio CHOOM uploaded on its YouTube channel “Sweet but Psycho” by Ava Max’s dance cover delivered by SinB and 1MILLION dancer Mina Myung. With a pinkish background, they both performed powerful dance movements.
On M2’s Studio description box, it said, “One artwork was born. GFriend’s SinB X 1MILLION’s Mina “COVERS.” Really, is it not the strongest in the universe?”
Best At Freestyle Dance Performance
Not only good at GFriend’s choreography, but she is also good at freestyle dance. As you can see from the several videos below, at every variety show, once again, SinB has shown her talent.
Solo Concert Performance
At one of GFriend’s concerts, SinB, as the main dancer, performed her solo concert with BoA’s song “No. 1.” She delivered an incredible performance, just like BoA’s, only SinB covered the song in her own style.
There is a hidden story behind this performance. As you can see, in the beginning, her hair was in a ponytail but in the middle of her performance, she unties her ponytail. Some people think that it’s part of the choreography. But SinB explains that’s not part of the choreography; her hairband got loose so she decided to take it off before it gets worse. However, Buddies think SinB was great and professional to not panic and solve her problem on the stage smoothly.
Collaboration On SM STATION “Wow Thing”
On September 28th, 2018, SM Entertainment made a project of Station X 0 who consists of four K-Pop Stars from different girl groups Seulgi from Red Velvet, SinB from GFriend, So-yeon from G-IDLE, and solo artist Chung-ha.
A bright, R&B-influenced pop song, “Wow Thing,” puts their powerful vocals in the spotlight and their dynamic dance through the performances. The song has a good meaning that tells about self-love and confidence in one’s own actions, urging people to be positive while finding their own path.
Before SM released the official announcement about this collaboration, SM posted a mysterious teaser from each member on its Instagram account and this teaser made all the fans curious so they started to guess who is the person behind this clue. This also caused the collaboration to become highly awaited, but not only because of the teaser, but also because of the popularity of the members.
And a source said that even though their practice for this performance was very short, they made a great performance for their movie video.
At the end of June, SinB was preoccupied with her group activities because GFriend made their comeback and released their seventh mini-album Fever Season on July 1st, 2019. This comeback has been awaited by Buddies because this is their first comeback in six months after the release of their second full album Time for Us in January 2019.
Their new mini album, Fever Season, is a nod to GFRIEND’s debut album Season of Glass. The title expresses the hot summer season as well as the girl group’s determination for the passionate performances and music they will show with this release.
GFriend got their first win on The Show with their track “Fever.”
You can watch their music video above. And let’s wait for another trophy for their comeback!
