South Korean Dance Group Dokteuk Crew Bring Unique Dancing Style to AGT
Ahead of their audition, Dokteuk Crew spoke about how their dancing is influenced by anime. The anime elements of powers, dragons, and heroes are all incorporated into their dances. They were not nervous at all stepping out onto the AGT stage and radiated positive energy. The judges gave a special shoutout to the one woman in the group. Sofia Vergara also pointed out that dancing acts are her favorite. No pressure!
The routine started off with a chain reaction to “Kill This Love” by Blackpink. Dokteuk Crew pulled off an illusion where it looked like one of their group members is falling in slow motion. Another group member put on a dragon head mask and was flown through the air. They lifted up a sheet to add an element of mystery. This led to a huge reveal where everyone was doing complicated lifts up on stage.
The judges gave Dokteuk Crew a standing ovation after the performance. Howie Mandel loved the routine so much that he kept on screaming toward the stage. While we didn’t get to hear the judge’s critiques just yet, Dokteuk Crew will definitely make it to the next round of the competition after their energetic performance this Tuesday.
This Crew Has Made Their Mark on the Dancing Scene in South Korea
If you can’t get enough of Dokteuk Crew, you can check out their own YouTube page where they post their own choreography. They often dance at 1Million Dance Studio. They also post clips from their on-stage performances which are just as captivating as their AGT audition. The group started off busking on the streets. Dokteuk Crew quickly grew to more members and they competed at the Body Rock International Competition held in San Diego in 2019.
They also collaborated with Sony Music Korea on a series of dance videos. Their performance of “Not Today” by BTS was featured on Korean television. Based on their Instagram profile, the group does promote a lot of products like dancewear and streetwear in collaboration with Korean brands. Their dancing even caught the attention of Zaya Sosho who competed on Season 13 of AGT with the group The Future Kingz.
