I anticipated a novelty track when the collaboration between comedian Yoo Jae-suk and K-pop group EXO was announced. But upon its release, “Dancing King” and its music video blindsided me by how good and how much FUN they both are.
There’s a backstory.
Yoo Jae-suk is a fixture on South Korean television as both an MC and comedian. As part of his long-running show Infinity Challenge, another cast member proposed he perform with the boyband as the penalty for failing a mission during an episode. So he did just that at one of EXO’s overseas concert stops. It looks like they all had a blast!
