BLACKPINK expertly hits choreography in ‘Shut Down’ dance practice video: Watch

It has been an exciting few days for BLACK ROSE SAID. The girl group released their second studio album, Born Pink, on Friday (Sept. 16), and along with the LP’s arrival came a music video for the frayed track “Shut Down.” Then on Sunday (September 18), the quartet — which consists of Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé — shared the official dance practice video to offer a reference point for the song’s choreography.

In the dance practice video, the girls wear all-black outfits and perform in the same chrome-and-white garage shown in the video. In the beginning, K-pop the group is joined by a number of gray-clad dancers who help them fill the room and walk the stairs in perfect harmony with the idols. The dancers then join the quartet for the final closing positions of the dance’s choreography.

The dance gives devoted BLINKs something new to learn, while the official video for “Shut Down” gave fans a variety of Easter eggs to sink their teeth into. When the visual for “Shut Down” arrived in the early hours of Friday morning, fans noted that it served as both a reflection on BLACKPINK’s past eras since the group’s 2016 debut with “Whistle,” in addition to a fun game for eagle-eyed viewers to decode all the little details and links to the group’s previous video releases as well as their solo and group discography.

Next for K-pop stars are the Born Pink World Tour. Starting in October, the 4-piece will stop in South Korea, North America, Europe and Australia, singing numbers from Born Pink as well as beloved hits from their impressive catalog.
