The Anniversary of “Make Your Move” – Two Years Ago



GIF courtesy of Make Your Move’s official Tumblr

The release of Make Your Move starring Derek Hough as Donny and BoA Kwon as Aya has come and gone, yet we’d like to reminisce a bit on the movie because the month of April is its anniversary. 🙂  It was two years ago, on April 17, 2014, that Make Your Move was released in South Korea, followed by its release on April 18 in the US. How long we had waited!

Many of us had followed the cast and crew of Cobu 3D for 3 years, beginning in April of 2011. We sought pictures, listened to all the interviews, tweeted with the cast, and read everything we could get our hands on.  We suffered through all the delays, eagerly awaiting the official release. And once the film was released, we sighed at the lack of promotion of this intriguing dance film (see here).  It had been some journey, right?

For old time’s sake, let’s walk down Memory Lane. Below are just a few pictures, videos, interviews, etc. Enjoy this nostalgic, sentimental look back!

VIDEOS

We absolutely loved this exclusive behind-the-scenes video that was released to us by High Top Releasing! In the video, we gained a little inside-look of how the dance scenes were created for the film and how the diverse music was incorporated into MAKE YOUR MOVE. We got nice interviews too from Duane Adler, Derek Hough, BoA Kwon, Napoleon and Tabitha D’Umo, and Yako Miyamoto!

How about this beautiful, romantic, sexy and exquisite video! (Thanks to xkjcharmed21x at Youtube who created it.) The chemistry between Derek and BoA melted the screen! Sigh…. 🙂 They are still our favorite couple to ship. 🙂

PHOTO GALLERIES

You can’t deny the incredible chemistry that Derek Hough and BoA had together on screen in MAKE YOUR MOVE as we watched their characters ‘Donny’ and ‘Aya’ fall in love!

Check out this photo gallery of scenes from Make Your Move of our favorite moments of Donny & Aya! Don’t you just want to go “Awwwww!”?

Enjoy this brief slideshow below of @MYMtheMovies’s marketing teasers. Such neat phrases that say it all. 🙂

NOSTALGIC WRAP-UP

No review would be complete without the now famous Official trailer. How many times have we each watched this? Be honest! 🙂

As our final offering for our walk down Memory Lane — for one last time — let’s watch this incredibly sweet “Goodnight” scene between Donny and Aya.

Hope you enjoyed this flashback of Make Your Move (aka Cobu 3D) and all the fond memories it may have evoked. It’s been sweet preparing it for you!

Thanks for stopping by our website and supporting us all these years! It’s been a blast! From all of us at MakeYourMoveFans: “Over and Out!” 🙂

This morning Billboard Online exclusively shared the highly anticipated “Let Me In” music video in this new article! The video features new scenes of Derek Hough in a recording studio, behind the scenes footage of Derek and BoA rehearsing, and scenes from the movie. Below is an except from the Billboard article:

The lead single off the film’s accompanying soundtrack is the euphoric dance-pop track “Let Me In,” performed by songwriter/producer Michael Corcoran who’s helmed theme songs and tracks for movies and TV shows like “Sam & Cat,” “Victorious” and more. The song was co-written by Corcoran, TV/film songwriter Eric Goldman and Hough himself.

The video is simple, beautifully shot, and exquisitely portrays the romance and chemistry between Donny and Aya! Hope you love the music video as much as we do and share it with all your friends and family!

Don’t forget to buy “Let Me In” on Itunes right now and pre-order the MAKE YOUR MOVE soundtrack out April 7!

UPDATE: Just saw this on the official Make Your Move website under the updated ‘Making the Music’ section:

Soundtrack Update

Did you notice that ‘Let Me In’ is a DUET between BoA and Michael Corcoran now??? Just bought the song off of iTunes and that version is just Michael Cocoran. However, there has been chatter over the internet that BoA’s version of ‘Let Me In’ will be included on the CD. We hope that we will be able to listen and buy the full version from BoA someday. In the meantime, support MAKE YOUR MOVE by purchasing ‘Let Me In’ on iTunes and pre-ordering the official soundtrack which releases on April 7! Buy here!

UPDATE: We just found out that the MAKE YOUR MOVE official soundtrack IS available to pre-order at the U.S. iTunes store!You can pre-view all the songs on your iTunes app. Isn’t this exciting!!!Here is a link to preorder it: MAKE YOUR MOVE soundtrack on iTunes.

One of our twitter followers @_tiffanyhwang sent us a link that allows you to pre-order the MAKE YOUR MOVE official soundtrack! However, after clicking the link, we realized that it’s only on sale through the iTunes store in Singapore! There is a choice to “change store” so you can possibly pre-order it now. We expect the record to go on pre-order sale everywhere very soon!

We found out a few days ago that the OST for MAKE YOUR MOVE is due to be released on April 7th and the first single from the soundtrack that’s going to be released is “Let Me In”, supposedly on March 31st. You can read more about the new information we found out about the soundtrack here.
