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!

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!” 🙂

Napoleon on BoA – “Boa is just…. She shines!! She gets tired like everyone else in rehearsals, but when it’s time to turn it on… SHE SHINES!”

Duane on BoA – “There is nobody I’d rather have in this film playing ‘Aya’ than BoA.”

Derek on BoA – “BoA….. There’s a lot of secrets I know about BoA!!! Ohh.. I’m just kidding!”

Duane on Derek & BoA – “BoA and Derek worked their ASSES off [on this film].”

We are finally getting some great media coverage on our beloved movie MAKE YOUR MOVE!

REVIEWS/ARTICLES

First, check out this great review from Arts Beat LA. Reviewer Pauline Adamek sounded like she absolutely loved the film!

Writer/Director Duane Adler (the writer who brought us Step Up and Save the Last Dance) has fashioned a solid screenplay that has the right amount of formulaic elements to make it work, yet enough complexity to keep you guessing. There’s a point when you really have no idea if it’s all going to resolve—and how? There’s plenty of hope and promise and that’s one aspect that makes this movie an especially rewarding experience.

Those of you that follow Derek Hough know that he films Dancing with the Stars Monday nights. But don’t worry because the screening is at The Grove LA which is a very popular outdoor shopping and dining area in downtown LA. The studio where Dancing with the Stars tapes at is literally next door to The Grove!

Maximo TV has tweeted that they will cover the event so expect to see interviews/videos by them on their youtube account! We’ll also post them here when we find them!

The screening is scheduled to start at 7:15pm PST and end by 10:00pm PST. If any of you live in LA, you might want to hang out at the Pacific Theaters to catch a glimpse of Derek or BoA! The address of the movie theater is 189 The Grove Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90036. *hint-hint* 😉

We are so excited that our beloved MAKE YOUR MOVE cast is going to be reunited. We’ll be covering the event and will post everything that we found on Tuesday. Don’t forget, we are going to need all YOUR help to make this movie successful. We hope you go many times opening weekend, bring friends and family with you, and tell everyone how much you loved the movie! We can do this!
