Changsun on Finding the Rhythm Both in Performance and Group Dynamic
What are the odds of you becoming the leader of two different groups? Is it your aura that makes you favorable, or your leadership skills that manifest how a bonded group is set to dominate all nations? For Changsun, having both qualities made it seem like he was born for the role.
As a natural head-turner, Changsun sways all fans to the beat he is working on. He places a premium on every groove as TAN's choreographer, and it's easy to see why he's always up for refining his stickler passion for dancing. With a package of skills and personalities, Changsun found the perfect rhythm to master his gift of choreography and bind TAN as one.
In this feature, Changsun is keen to show the perks of being a leader in TAN, who he confides in the most when all is taking too much, the moves he has a special connection with, and more.
Q. As someone who also creates choreography, what is your favorite TAN choreography and why?
Changsun: I like the choreography of our debut song, "DU DU DU." It's the first choreography that we've showcased, and it's the choreography that I'm very attached to.
Q. You said that you wish to be a great dancer. Where are you in your career in terms of
realizing that? What other areas do you wish to improve on or master?
Changsun: I think it's still lacking a lot, and it seems to be about 50%. I want to learn many things, but I really want to learn more about modern dance.
Q. Tell us what's so special about becoming a leader in TAN.
Changsun: The fact that I think of the team more than myself, and sometimes I say bitter things for the team and become a villain (laughs).
Q. Among the members, who do you depend on when you have hard times? Who are you closest with? How's your bond?
Changsun: All of the members rely on each other and overcome difficult situations together, but if I have to choose from them, I rely on Jooan, who is the same age as me, and we talk more often.
Q. What is your favorite or most anticipated promotion tour?
Changsun: I'm very curious about the cheers of SODAs and the reactions of the locals. I also look forward to knowing the cultures of different countries that we will visit.
