(Over & Over & Over)” has also been released, and the choreography is designed by Dance Masters Back Kooyoung and Jang Juhee.Â “For this song, we are inspired by Planet prototype,” they say. “The choreography can demonstrate curves and toughness in these girls, as well as their aspirations.” After watching the choreography, even K-pop Master Sunmi confesses “it’s difficult, but I expect to see energy in these girls.”Â
