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

MYM BTS 6

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!” 🙂

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.

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.

FULL OST TRACK LIST

We also discovered this article tonite from pop music blog MuuMuse. The blog publishes the full track list of MAKE YOUR MOVE, but the big surprise seems to be that BoA’s version of “Let Me In” is NOT included on the soundtrack. We have contacted our sources to get confirmation on this and we’ll let you know if we find anything out. We will be very sad if BoA doesn’t even have a song on her own movie’s soundtrack!

The music and lyrics were co-written by Derek Hough, Eric Goldman, and Michael Corcoran. If you didn’t know, Derek and our director, Duane Adler, filmed scenes for a music video for “Let Me In”.

We are hoping that BoA might shoot scenes for the music video when she gets to LA to attend the red carpet premiere of the movie next Monday, March 31. Let’s cross our fingers!!

However, we read some information last night from a pop music blog that BoA’s version of “Let Me In” isn’t on the official track list for the soundtrack. Read more here. We are trying to verify this information and we’ll let you know if we find anything out.

There are songs from singer/songwriters such as Shannon LaBrie and Felicia Barton. Lastly, of course, we are going to hear BoA sing her version of the film’s love theme song ‘Let Me In’, which was co-written by her co-star, Derek Hough!
