Ostensibly written and produced with BoA in mind for the lead part, Make Your Move appears to be a movie about two dancers who fall in love against all odds by dancing their way into the hearts and minds of their adversaries, friends, families and film audiences world- yeah it looks and sounds crushingly mundane is what I’m getting at:
Also, I guess BoA is Japanese for… reasons? The choreographer flew out to see BoA in Japan and wanted to use dance moves inspired by traditional Japanese drumming so that could account for the discrepancy but it is about the only thing which stood out in a trailer which could have been for just about every other dance-based movie made in the Step Up factory of VOD.
Of course, BoA can dance with the best of entertainers and these movies are largely just an excuse for giant dance sequences but if one wants to see that without all the bad acting and horrible movie love cliches, one can just watch a BoA music video (she even has American releases guyz!).
Save the Last Dance: BoA Edition is set to be released on April 18th in America. It will debut on April 17th in Korea, one week after Captain America: Winter Soldier will debut there and one week before Amazing Spider-Man 2. In other words, I’m not expecting a runaway hit or sequel in the works either here or abroad. Don’t tell Soompi though.
