Let's rewind back to 2013, a year filled with many monumental pop-culture moments. Obama was still in the White House, the "Harlem Shake" was a thing, "Blurred Lines" was EVERYWHERE, and millions cried over "The Red Wedding" in Game of Thrones.
In the world of K-pop though, that was the year fans remember as when Girls' Generation hit a new level of popularity thanks to their blockbuster hit "I Got A Boy," which won a crazy amount of acclaim and accolades (and still continues to do so).
Despite the massive success of the song, the one thing that K-pop fans have been clamouring for for years is the "I Got A Boy" dance practice video, which was considered something of a myth as K-pop dance practice videos are generally released a week after the MV yet SONEs saw nothing for "I Got A Boy" for years.
Well, K-pop fans, the wait is finally over because someone has just leaked that long-awaited "I Got A Boy" dance practice video over on Reddit, and boy was it worth the four-year wait!
From seeing OT9 all together again to the classic SM cloud dance practice room, we were definitely awash with nostalgia and bittersweetness considering what has happened in the years since "I Got A Boy's" release. As for the actual dancing, it is known that the dance is among Girls' Generation's most memorable and difficult, but their music show performances don't do the choreography any justice and it is so cool to finally see the girls showcase just how good their moves are without any rapid camera cuts.
It may have taken years, but the girls have finally brought it back to 140!
