Where Are They Now? — The Stars of “Make Your Move”

Let’s catch up with the two leading stars of Make Your Move, which was released earlier this year in Korea and in the United States. If you missed the film, it is available on DVD or Blu Ray. Just for the dancing and the music from American and K-Pop artists alone, the film is so worth it.

Derek HoughDEREK HOUGH (plays Donny) – The five-time champ of Dancing With the Stars and Emmy Award winner in choreography is back for his 14th season. Derek’s partner for the season  Bethany Mota, a young You Tube vlogger with millions of subscribers. Recently Derek and Bethany had the opportunity to perform to Gene Kelly’s iconic song, Singin’ In the Rain. Click here for more details, and a video of the performance.

Derek is also going to appear in four episodes of the popular ABC show Nashville. Derek will appear for the first time on October 8 in an episode entitled, “I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life.” Below is a promo of his appearance.


BoA KwonBOA KWON (plays Aya) – BoA has been involved in a comeback tour in Japan, the release of a new single,”Masayume Chasing”, as well as a new album entitled, Who’s Back?. Just recently, she completed a SMtown Concert in Tokyo for 2 days with other SM entertainment label mates.


In filmography, BoA is set to make her domestic film debut in a Korean movie called Big Match. The film is a techno-crime thriller about the happenings at a gambling house. In the film, she plays Soo-Kyung (a woman of mystery). The film is to be released in December 2014.



BoA Talks About ‘Make Your Move’ & How She Wants A Boyfriend To Treat Her!

In this new interview from Koreak Joongang Daily, BoA talks about MAKE YOUR MOVE, how she wants her boyfriend to treat her, and her next movie project! BoA also clarifies that she did not want to sing in the film because she wanted to separate herself from ‘Aya’. Check out this beautiful picture they posted with the article! Thanks to @dreamsong91 on twitter for sending us the article!


Do you think you are similar to Aya’s character?

Yes. Aya and I both are quite independent girls, and we love dance, apparently. Also, as I have spent quite a lot of time in Japan, I could relate to Aya more than anybody else. And we both have older brothers who we are very close to.

In the film, Aya says she doesn’t want a guy to control her. Do you think so too?

Definitely not [laughs]. To be honest, I want my boyfriend to control me and hold the upper hand in the relationship.

How can you compare dancing as Aya in the film to dancing on stage as BoA?

I have been a solo artist for about 14 years, so it’s kind of awkward to dance with someone else. And when that other person is a guy, it gets worse. When I first joined the film, I freaked out when Derek touched me in the dance moves. It took weeks for me to adapt to the situation [laughs]. Dancing in the film was a whole different experience since I had to convey the feelings of my character through dancing. Even when I was shooting the same scene, I could act differently depending on how I perceived Aya and Donny’s emotions. Now that I’ve tried so many different moves with Derek, I think I could dance to anything with him.

Did you think about singing in the film?

No. I did not want my image as a singer to be confused with Aya’s character, and I said so to the production team.

From last year’s KBS special drama series “Waiting for Love,” you seem to be focusing on your acting career at the moment. How’s your next film, “Big Match,” going?

“Big Match” is an action film, and I play the villain, going up against actor Lee Jung-jae in the story. It was fun to put on special makeup and fight against male characters.
