Workout Routine: Easy K-Pop Choreos To Lose Weight

As summer is coming up, we are all starting to take care of our bodies. Stick with me to know my one and only workout secret: KPOP CHOREOS! 

How great would it be to have their bodies? I would kill to have Hyorin's amazing figure!

So, a little background on me and my workout routine. When I was 14, I went on a crazy diet and managed to loose 11kg (I gained it back, but that's another story.) As a dancer, dancing was the perfect calorie burner, as it was a hobby and an exercise at the same time; so the only workout I would do was kpop choreos! So yeah, they do work! 

After becoming a K-pop fan, learning the choreos has been a natural thing to do. I've been a kpop fan since 2011, and since then I have learnt more than 150 choreographies! 

WOW! I just counted the downloaded videos that I dance in front of, and there are more than 150.....Never realised how many i've learnt :P 

I will give you guys a list of EASY PEASY choreos that you can easily learn, and are sure to make you break a sweat :D

TIP: Find mirrored versions of the dance practices in order to easily learn it :D If you can't find a mirrored version,  you can easily mirror it yourself using any video editor program.

Wonder Girls-Like This

Perfect workout, especially for your inner thighs! Fun and easy :D

Sistar-Loving You

Another great leg workout. For an extra UMPH, do it with heels (if you can :P)

Sistar-Touch My Body

Very fun and lighthearted. Sistar's dances are all great to easily burn calories, and this one isn't an exception. (TIP: Make sure no one sees you doing this choreo, people will look at you weirdly. .....AHAHA)

Sistar19-Ma Boy

Same. Sistar choreographies are easy, fun and help you loose weight. Plus, just looking at their bodies  is a huge motivation.


I love this dance, it's a classic on my workout routine. Perfect to create that S-line figure that Secret is known for.

Secret-Love Is Move

Filled with tiny jumps that are a huge boost on your workout routine! 

Hyuna-Bubble Pop

Do this dance properly and you will be sweating after it! If you watch the dance practice, you can see how tired Hyuna is at the end of it. Super simple as well, just jump around like you're partying. 


Work them legs with the help of those sexy squats! 

Crayon Pop-Bar Bar Bar

This is a legit workout, i'm pretty sure the dance was inspired on some kind of cardio routine. Learnt it in 10 minutes (no exaggeration), super super easy.

Psy-Gangnam Style

The viral horse dance! YES! 


Another dance that went viral (in Korea) which will help you burn off those chocolates and ice creams. Might look weird, so again, do when you're by yourself :P

T-ara-Lovey Dovey

Everyday i'm shufflin'

Orange Caramel-My Copycat

A serious favourite at the moment. I'm always breathing heavily after I finish this dance. The chorus really kills you!

Girls' Day-Female President

This one isn't very tiring, but it will help you warm up and shake that fat off!

BONUS: The following choreographies will REALLY kill you and burn off that muffin top! These are a little harder, but aren't mission impossible either! Invest the time you need to learn them, it will really payoff once you do them regularly!

Amazing Fat Burning Choreos:

SNSD-Into The New World

Amazing. Reminds me of an energetic cheerleading routine.

SNSD-I Got A Boy

Let Me Introduce Myself~ Herrreee comes a good workout! DARA HAE!


Couldn't find a practice with the original members, but these beautiful ladies performed the dance amazingly.


Another great calorie killer, make sure you don't go lazy on it! You have to do it properly like you're performing on stage :P

Miss A-Breathe

SO TIRING! Those squats and jumps will definitely kill all your fat. Do it like Min does, and you will be laying flat on the floor when you finish. 

So yeah, that wraps up my list! I used to do (i'm being lazy these days) at least 45 minutes everyday, but of course you should shape the workout according to what you think works for you. With the exception of Psy, all these dances are from female groups because they tend to be easier, but if you would like to see my favourite male group dances, i'll be more than glad to do it!

Good luck guys!! Oh, what do you think you Kpop Dance Covers? Would you guys like too see them? Please let me know!

If you’re looking for something to make you sweat more, Everglow’s Dun Dun is here to give you a challenge. The song is bold and has a memorable chorus and choreography, it also works the whole body, resembling a cardio workout.

You will need to put in a lot of energy and work your core for the body roll in the chorus, which also acts as a great way for working your abdominal muscles. All in all, this song not only makes you look good, but you can also have fun along the way learning the choreography.

Is it possible to lose weight with the help of dancing - an excellent means for losing weight


Getting rid of extra pounds is one of the tasks that many girls set themselves when they enroll in a dance studio, while most of us associate weight loss with grueling workouts in the gym, rather than with exciting activities on the floor. So can you lose weight with dancing? Let's jump ahead and answer right away: yes, but only with an integrated approach and the support of a qualified trainer-teacher. You can easily find a real professional who will help both with motivation and with the tactics of burning excess in our club.

How to lose weight by dancing

There is no secret here: our body gets rid of stored fat stores when it expends more energy than it consumes. Therefore, we can do this in two ways: increase the load or create an energy deficit (that is, reduce the number of calories consumed). And if you do both, it's a combo! The body itself will not notice how it begins to lose excess. At the same time, dancing as an effective physical activity and a method of losing weight is best suited: here is the music that cheers you up and makes your heart beat faster, and your favorite hobby, and the motivation to be more successful in your dance group. Yes, the mere fact that, having signed up for a dance, you have to leave the house once again to come to class, it will help to burn calories.

Sign up for a trial lesson

How it works

Here's what will happen in your body while you move on the floor: first of all, metabolism is activated. The body will burn calories intensely for several hours after a workout. During this period, it is advisable to drink more fluids, but do not take heavy meals, so as not to interfere with the "magic" process of losing weight. With regular dancing, the lymphatic system normalizes its work, and this is getting rid of all kinds of edema and the ill-fated cellulite. The result will not be long in coming: the skin will tighten, the muscles will tone up, and the silhouette will become clearer and, of course, more feminine. In addition, dancing is a great exercise for the heart, and if you used to suffer from shortness of breath, it will pass soon after regular training.

Here are some more pleasant “bonuses” from dancing:

  • You lose weight in a pleasant company, supporting each other and not being left alone with your “extra” kilograms;
  • Many dance exercises work those muscles that are difficult to "touch" even in the gym;
  • In any case, you get a strengthened muscular corset, which means an even posture, a toned stomach and tight hips;
  • Unlike many other sports, there are practically no contraindications for dancing, and even if you have health problems, you can choose the right direction;
  • Dancing is the optimal combination of cardio and strength training, which is considered the most suitable for the fat burning process, and due to the alternation of periods of tension and relaxation, your workouts will come closer to the intervals that are now so popular in gyms.

In addition, if you came to a special studio, it means that you are not indifferent to classes, and these are increased chances that you will not give up training and losing weight halfway, but continue to dance even when the desired result is achieved.

Experts even identify five areas that are the best helpers for those who want to lose weight:

  • Strip plastic and pole-dance include both power and aerobic loads, as well as stretching and acrobatics. Naturally, all this forces the body to train in an enhanced mode. Weight loss guaranteed! It should be borne in mind that classes in this direction do not begin at all with an approach to the pole, but with the development of basic exercises that strengthen the muscles of the whole body. They say that even those parts of the body that I had not suspected before begin to work.
  • Reggaeton is a direction that requires good physical preparation and a trained body. Energetic dance replaces full-fledged cardio. Plus - increased load on the legs, hips and buttocks.
  • Belly dance. Great for those who want to tighten the muscles of the body and see the long-awaited press. In "shaking" the whole body is strengthened, and calories are burned due to energetic movements. In addition, belly dancing is believed to work the thighs and buttocks, toning them without boring squats and lunges. Worth a try!
  • Irish step is one of the top leaders for weight loss, perhaps unexpectedly, but quite justifiably: it is believed that such activities completely replace jogging in the park. The upper body in the Irish step is almost not involved, but the legs work out to the fullest.
  • Flamenco - provides the body with a uniform load. This direction trains all major muscle groups, toning them and correcting the feminine silhouette. Flamenco is a very energetic dance that will not let you get bored during class. And it is also very useful for the spine and, as a result, a beautiful posture.

All Latin dances and modern jazz also got into the top ideal for weight loss dance styles.

Do not expect from dancing that you will start to lose weight in some specific places. Belly dancing, for example, will not make you press "cubes", leaving your arms and legs as they were. Weight loss is a complex process, and the fat layer is burned throughout the body, and in problem areas - the slowest. But certain dance directions will be able to increase the physical load on specific parts of the body, where beautiful muscles will subsequently appear instead of “burnt” fat. Is this not a sporty fit figure?

How to speed up the process

Losing weight is not a quick process, but the first results can be seen after a few dance lessons. When you need to lose more than a couple of kilograms, you should think about proper nutrition, without which no fat burning is possible. The scheme is simple: we increase the load on the body and at the same time create a small calorie deficit. When the body realizes that it needs more energy, it will take it not from incoming food, but from its own reserves.
