Okay, see if you can follow all this. WayV is the seven-piece Chinese sub-unit of South Korean boyband NCT. Rainbow V is a project by WayV to showcase its members’ artistic talents. And this video was one of the pieces that was created for this project, choreographed and performed by WayV members Ten and Winwin. Still with me? Good, because this video is stunningly beautiful.
I know I’ve talked a lot about wanting to see dance performances live again, but this video is the perfect example of a dance piece that was made specifically to be filmed. And it is exquisite. The lighting, the set, and the music are all gorgeous, not to mention the dancing itself which is incredible. And it needs to be said. Ten and Winwin have scorching chemistry. To be honest, I have absolutely no idea how this got by the Chinese censors, but I’m glad it did.
I will eventually check out the rest of Rainbow V, but for now, I’m going to watch this piece on repeat for the foreseeable future.
