DANCING

KIM JIN-HWAN

KIM JIN-HWAN

Do not be taken in by Boot Camp Master Class Trainer Kim Jin-Hwan’s boyish good looks and youthful energy, he has over 15 years of experience in the K-Pop industry.

Starting his journey as a dancer in 2001 at the Shin Seung-Hoon LA Concert, he quickly moved up the ranks from back up dancing on several pop stars’ albums and concerts such as the albums of Ha Ji-Won, Sinbi, and Sonya, and Sung Si-Kyung at Dream Concert to becoming a trainer at Openworld Entertainment.

He discovered his love for dance training and choreography while working with collaborators and other dancers. The intensity of creating dance pieces drives his passion. In 2013, he worked with G20, a Thailand girl group who shot to fame on the Korean TV show ‘Star King’ and Got7 formed by JYP Entertainment in 2014.

Jin-Hwan is currently a K-Pop Dance Professor at Korea Entertainment College, the dance trainer for DS Entertainment A6P and key choreographer for Bloomy, a Korean girl pop group.

SEUNG MIN PARK

SEUNG MIN PARK

Boot Camp Master Class Trainer Park Seung Min may seem a bit aloof when you first meet him but there’s nothing to fear. For someone whose passion lies in dancing, Seung Min has spent the last 16 years as a dancer, trainer, and choreographer.

In early 2000, Seung Min debuted as a dancer on Zeno Dance Team in Korea. Over the last two decade, he has worked with idol groups EVO9, Candy Mafia, and CUP-C, just to name a few. He has also worked with Psy, the singer famous for his global hit song “Gangnam Style”, and with the well-known girl group Brown-Eyed Girls on many of their songs.

Seung Min was also a weekly column writer for the Daily News K-Pop Dance, took on judging roles in many dance competitions, and worked as a choreographer for OLAY commericals.

An unstoppable force, Seung Min recently choreographed (and made special appearances) in Brown-Eyed Girls’ “Brave New World” and “Warm Hole” music videos, which were widely acclaimed by industry experts for their concept and choreography.
