BTS did not become global superstars for no reason—they’re exceptionally talented and deeply passionate in the music department, they have distinctly endearing personalities that make fans want to be friends with them, and there’s no question that they’re hardworkers when it comes to their craft.

The South Korean artists are also well-known for serving hard-hitting dance moves that accompany a few of their chart-topping songs. Case in point: The lead single “ON” from their latest album, Map of the Soul: 7, had the seven members dancing their hearts off to every beat.

Recently, the group pulled off quite a historic show by performing the same hardcore choreo for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at none other than New York City’s iconic Grand Central Terminal. As of writing, the video has garnered close to 14 million views. Grabe lang!

And in case you didn’t know yet, the person behind the choreography for the lead single is actually 19-year-old Sienna Lalau, who also appeared in the music video and on Jimmy Fallon’s show along with her dance crew The Lab. Sienna writes on her Instagram post, “It was such an honor and a blessing to choreograph AND dance in such an amazing song with some of the most hardworking and talented artists ever.”

This wasn’t the first time BTS worked with the 19-year-old dancer and choreographer. Sienna also choreographed for BTS member j-hope’s “Chicken Noodle Soup” which featured singer Becky-G and also collaborated with fellow The Lab member Andrew Elam on the choreography for another BTS banger “Dionysus.”

She along with The Lab were also booked by the global boy group as their backup dancers during their show at the Rose Bowl Stadium, LA for the Love Yourself: Speak Yourself Tour in 2019.

As the talented and passionate artists that they are, BTS sure have an eye for fellow talented creatives! Here's BTS' j-hope talking about the "Chicken Noodle Soup" collab with Sienna:

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
