ITZY Lia has become the center of the spotlight again for her dancing!
Netizens had first started talking about Lia’s dancing in 2019 shortly after the group’s debut. Back then, a dance video of their title track “Dalla Dalla” drew attention and Lia was dubbed a ‘lazy dancer.’ Some netizens speculate she either had no energy to dance or doesn’t even try. Since then, Lia has always been the subject of criticism for her dancing.
Fast forward to their most recent comeback, ITZY made a guest appearance on “Idol Radio,” and a video of the group dancing to “WANNABE” was posted shortly after and it attracted attention.
Lia’s dancing made headlines again, many netizens commented on how ‘lazy’ she was again with her movements. Fans are split; some think she’s doing her best while others think she’s not trying hard enough.
Check out the video below and let us know, what do you think of Lia’s dancing? Do you think she needs to work on it more?
I think it’s because her clothes? Because she’s the only one use dress and the skirt is pretty short and tight so if she split her leg more, it will roll up. Just my opinion.
I don’t think that she dances lazily at all! She is perfectly in sync with other members although maybe not in the same level of fierceness. She comes off as sweet and a bit graceful. So I think that it’s unfair of people to give her harsh criticisms. I hope that Lia will continue to work hard and do her best. Lia, fighting!
I LOVE Itzy, and have been following them since their debut, and honestly haven’t seen any real fans split on this: Lia isn’t an amazing dancer, we know this. She still needs work. But if she were in almost any other girl group with more cutesy feminine dances- she would honestly be fine. Her dance skills are maybe just below average girl group idol levels. Itzy’s dances however are generally more difficult, and are a different style to more cutesy dance styles. (This isn’t to say cutesy styles are bad, I LOVE cutesy styles, they’re just different) Itzy’s style involves sharper movements and more energy put into different parts of movements than a cute style dance, which involves more grace and softness, and energy in other places. Lia would dance a cutesy style well. Unfortunately, being in Itzy, she’s with girls who are known as some of the best dancers of the 4th generation. When put in contrast to dancers like Chaeryeong and Yeji, she going to have difficulty matching their energy and skill.
However, she’s never come off as lazy to me- she’s doing her best to match up with amazing dancers and is putting in the effort to do that- it’s just going to take longer for her to reach that skill level is all.
I have to agree with you. People tend to forget how difficult and rigid idols lives are outside of performances and how that may affect their dancing. At least she is still trying and not doing what Jenny did in the past, making BlackPink look bad by just not doing the dances and giving a bad performance. We also need to remember that Itzy is a group of teenagers. They still have a lot of growing to do, but what they have accomplished so far is really, really impressive!
(First of all I know this article is kinda old but I still would like to give some input speaking from a perspective before not shy era) So let me just give you my take on it. I hope we can agree that she probably wasn’t at her best in this moment and didn’t have much energy. But you have to admit that there aren’t any flaws in the dancing, except for when she decides not to do a certain dance move. She’s also perfectly in sync with the other members.
I wouldn’t call it lazy what so ever, I’d rather call it ‘calm dancing’. Her moves aren’t so powerful but they look very effortless. And why would you say things like “ I can see that Lia still needs practice.” When she clearly doesn’t. She has performed on stage showing herself in a better state and giving all she’s got. She has danced better than this, and she is really good at what she does. Can I also just remind you of the fact that this is an idol radio performance. I’m not at all saying that she shouldn’t do her best for these kind performances, but it’s perfectly fine for her to dance more comfortably since there isn’t a pressure of a big crowd.
Lastly I don’t think she deserved all this hate, she looked really cute. I honestly love seeing idols be more comfortable during these performances. But if, for example, Yeji decides she wants to look fierce during her performance that’s completely fine.
