By Brian Jones
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is known for being very active on social media, especially on TikTok. And with the help of Team Milk, Smith-Schuster has come up with his TikTok dance challenge for TikTok called hashtag "DoTheJuJu," which debuted last week. PopCulture.com recently caught up with the star wide receiver who revealed how he came up with the dance.
"I picked the song that I liked and that I loved that I thought was very flowed and fluently, but I was able to come up with this dance and with quite a few of a routine of mine part of this," Smith-Schuster told PopCulture. "It was really cool because it shows my personality. This is me, this is who I am. And like I said, being through the hashtag 'DoTheJuJu' was awesome because I was able to involve, not only just milk but my personality and even a dog too, like my French bulldog and stuff like that.

Smith-Schuster has released a series of videos of his dance challenge on TikTok, which is the original one being viewed over 700,000 times. The USC alum has gained a big following on TikTok with over three million followers and loves showing off his dances moves on and off the field. But why does he love being on TikTok?
"I think it gets to show people who we truly are," Smith-Schuster explained. "You know, you talk about football players they're not that really big on social media because our job is so physical and, we don't get to play a lot of games. We're the only team that has 17 games versus 82 games a year. So people criticize you for using social media and stuff like that, but I do it because it's very authentic. It's myself. I get to show people, who I am under the helmet and they just get to see more of me."
Smith-Schuster is one of the athletes of the Team Milk campaign, which can be seen in his latest TikTok videos. Milk has been part of an athlete's nutrition routine for centuries, and Smith-Schuster has been drinking it well before he started playing football.0comments
"When I was a kid, I've always been a milk drinker," Smith-Schuster said. "It was always part of my daily routine, daily life. Before I could play video games, my mom always say, 'Hey, make sure you drink your milk.' So I would, honestly sit there and drink my milk, whether it was chocolate milk, strawberry milk, any milk it was that was given to me. It was my go-to and with milk, it helps with performance."
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to stop dancing on opponents' logos
Dec 23, 2020
PITTSBURGH -- Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster said he's done dancing on opponents' logos during pregame warm-ups after increased scrutiny to the viral videos over the past two weeks.
Smith-Schuster has danced on opponents' logos, as well as his own, during pregame warmups all season, but he said he's calling it quits because his teammates and coaches were being asked about it.
"For the betterment of myself and my teammates, I'm going to stop dancing on the logos," Smith-Schuster said Wednesday. "For me, honestly, I was dancing when we were undefeated. I was dancing when we lost our three games. I'm not going to change the person who I am.
"I think it's getting to the point where my teammates are being asked this question. Our coach is being asked this question."
Though coach Mike Tomlin previously said he wasn't aware of Smith-Schuster's dances, he talked with the receiver about it this week.
"Honestly, I don't want to be a distraction to anybody," said Smith-Schuster, who added he wasn't paid by TikTok to do the dances. "... If it's getting to the point where you're asking my teammates and coaches, there's no point. Ideally, I'd probably just do everything in-house."
Steelers teammate Joe Haden on Twitter said Smith-Schuster hasn't been a distraction.
"My dawg @TeamJuJu dancing is the LEAST of our problems! Take are Ls like a man a move on! See you Sunday"

Prior to Monday night's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Smith-Schuster posted his signature dance on the Bengals' logo before kickoff with the caption: "They told to stop dancing and not be yourself so . .."
In the week leading up to the game, Bengals' safety Vonn Bell said the dances were "disrespectful" and the Bengals defense had to "hit him and let him know where he stands."
Bell delivered a bone-crushing hit to Smith-Schuster in the first quarter and forced a fumble.
"It was a good hit," Smith-Schuster said. "I'll give it to him. The timing, where he was at, where I was at, me catching the football, he made a great hit. I can't knock him for that. He's a great safety."
Smith-Schuster is done dancing -- at least for now -- but his teammates haven't had a problem with Smith-Schuster being himself.
"I think we've got to leave it alone," defensive captain Cam Heyward said. "I think people will talk to him, so be it. We're only talking about it because we're losing. We're giving it headlines because we're losing.
"I'd rather you'd dance over the Super Bowl logo when we're done. We don't need to focus on anything else. JuJu is a heck of a talent and we're very glad to have him. He provides a leadership for that young group at such a young age. So be it. We're in 2020, if you can't dance over a logo? What are we talking about? Man, people can't even go outside right now. We are very appreciative of everybody's talents. Let's get focused on football, let's get back to winning."

"While You Were Sleeping" is a legendary Korean drama that is adored all over the world. Bae Suzy and Lee Jong Suk, the real superstars of South Korea, played the main couple here. But, in addition to a touching love story, the series was also remembered by the audience due to the incendiary dance of the main character. Nam Hong Joo performed the song Fantastic Baby by South Korean boy band Big Bang in the shower. Her number was incredible!

The series has a driving scene where the daring Kang Mi Rae showed off her dancing skills to her classmates. She comes off to the song New Face by South Korean singer PSY. Yes, yes, he performed the famous Gangman Style, to which the whole world danced. Mi Rae knows a lot about music, her number was insanely cool!
From "Legend of the Blue Sea"
"Legend of the Blue Sea" is a popular fantasy drama about the love between a simple boy, Jun Jae, and the little mermaid, Shin Chung. In episode 15, they came to the club with their friends, where Shin Chung really lit up. She put her whole soul into the dance: the girl did not even notice that all eyes were on her. She didn’t care much, Shin Chung only cared what “the same guy” would think of her. It's so cute!
From "Moonlight Outlined by a Cloud" There was nothing like this in the drama itself, but as part of the promotional campaign, the actors from the series performed an incendiary number to the track Bombastic. The video opens with Park Bo Gum wearing sunglasses and dressed as his character Lee Yong. The dance came out so funny that fans were wildly disappointed when there was nothing like this in the drama itself.

"Love is so beautiful" is an emotional and sincere story about first love. How do stories like this usually end? That's right, a wedding. In the last episode, the characters got married, and their ceremony was amazingly good. In addition to the amazing dress of the bride, fans remember the dance of the groom and his two friends. To the song Lovely by singer Kim Jong Kook, the guys made the finale of the drama unforgettable!
From "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo" Plus, the drama has a very cute dance number. Bok-joo and her friend Joon-hyun visit a nightclub. The girl is upset, and the swimmer does his best to cheer her up. On the dance floor, Bok-joo's movements have a hard time matching the rhythm of the music. But the audience liked this number, the heroine, like a normal person, relaxed and had fun from the bottom of her heart.
The series is about Vincenzo Cassano, a guy from South Korea, but due to life circumstances he grew up in Italy. He became a mafia lawyer, returned home and got into a big mess. The drama also features the main character Hong Cha Young. She works as a lawyer and somehow ended up at a corporate dinner where the game "Picture Your Colleague" began. It was Cha Young's turn: the girl decided to show a new senior partner. She began to shout inarticulate sounds to the music and waved her arms and legs in all directions. It was tiring!
From 'Queen Chorin'
This is an insanely funny series about chef Bong Hwan who travels back in time and ends up in the body of a king's bride. Yes, here is such a rzhach! Therefore, the drama could not do without the incendiary dance of the heroine, Bong Hwan - he was also the ringleader. Upon hearing the good news, our Queen Chorin immediately starts dancing. She moves her whole body, which was outrageous for a royal at the time. But she doesn't care, she continues to dance, giving all of herself to this action.
