Galing! A 19-Year-Old Is Behind That Insane ‘ON’ Choreography BTS Performed At Grand Central Terminal
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:
