"Sexy" Japanese Men Dance J-Pop Style To LOVE LIVE!

This is just the right amount of strange for your Friday. These "sexy" Japanese guys dance to the theme of the anime Bokura wa Ima no Naka or Love Live! Being the well seasoned geek that you are, I'm sure you're well aware of the J-Pop/K-Pop format of shooting dance videos, and will note that the style is true to form! For those who may not be in the know on the Japanese Pop and Korean Pop scene, basically the other dance videos look like this...

The J-pop and K-pop scenes are very much similar to the American scene, but with some differences. These dances are integral to the new songs that are released. The dances are synced up with the music, and carefully choreographed to ensure the moves aren't too difficult for fans of the music to replicate. It sounds pretty wild to me, but I remember trying to emulate Justin Timberlake and his dances back in the day, so I guess it's not that crazy.

Fashion is also a big part of the process. The style of clothes, makeup, and hair products these stars use is well documented and mimicked by girls in the Asian nations. Essentially they are walking advertisements. Then again, the same could be said for our pop stars. Hmm...the things you learn when you look at other cultures.
