Japanese Pop Dance might not be as well known as Korean Pop Dance in the West, but Hong personally finds the dance movements of the former are more powerful and speedy, which demands a good level of physical strength and body balance. To a great extent Hong sees some elements of Martial Arts such as Karate interwoven within the dance, therefore it might be more difficult for a beginner dancer to follow. On the contrary K-pop is slightly earlier to learn for anyone because of its "Point Dance", which slows down the movements and decreases the demand for physical strength. If you watch the videos of the performances by J Soul Brothers, one of the most popular Japanese pop music groups, you will be definitely impressed by the fact that their dance movements are extremely clean, smooth and strong.
