BTS have released their comeback trailer for "Love Yourself: Tear", with a smooth jam from member V called "Singularity".

The striking music video features V taking the centre spot to dance with back up, and the intricate moves have caught fans' attention. 

The man behind the choreo is none other than Keone Madrid, and he's been working with BTS for a while now. The American choreographer is the creator of the iconic moves from "Dope", "Fire", "Not Today" and "Blood Sweat & Tears".

He has a prolific rep with other K-pop artists too, having choreographed dances for B1A4, GOT7, VIXX, Triple H, JYP, 2PM and many more.

He dances and choreographs in a duo with his wife, Mari Madrid, and the pair featured in Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" MV which was also choreographed by them. The pair also appeared on American dance competition World of Dance where they impressed judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough, and BTS were supporting them along the way!

The pair have also appeared as choreographers on So You Think You Can Dance and The Ellen Show, been nominated for MTV Video Music Awards for choreography, performed in Mark Ronson's "I Can't Lose" video and choreographed Flying Lotus ft. Kendrick Lamar's "Never Catch Me".

With these skills, it's no wonder he's the go-to choreographer for the incredible moves BTS showcase on stage!
