If you’re looking for something to make you sweat more, Everglow’s Dun Dun is here to give you a challenge. The song is bold and has a memorable chorus and choreography, it also works the whole body, resembling a cardio workout.
You will need to put in a lot of energy and work your core for the body roll in the chorus, which also acts as a great way for working your abdominal muscles. All in all, this song not only makes you look good, but you can also have fun along the way learning the choreography.

I’m sure you’ve heard of this well-known track before. BTS Mic Drop is a Hip Hop based track that will work your arms and core. You’ll need all your energy to execute the moves while managing your arm and leg coordination. The choreography for the chorus requires you to use every part of your body, arms? Check. Legs? Check.

- TWICE Cheer Up
Cheer Up by Twice has a cute and cheerful melody that is great for a warm-up. Unlike the other songs on the list, this track is light-hearted and doesn’t require you to exert all your strength and go into overdrive. There is minimal jumping and is good to stretch your waist while you’re at it, the choreography itself is easy and you’ll find yourself happily bouncing to this tune while getting some light exercise.
- Baekhyun Candy
My personal favorite on this list is Baekhyun’s latest track Candy. The choreography is as sweet as the title itself and is a great option if you’re looking to work out with a friend or partner. Candy doesn’t have many complex leg movements, but it’s a song that has body rolling which will require you to work your core to execute it.
Even if you’re not looking to lose weight, Candy is a great track to just dance and have a great time with your friends or yourself!

An oldie but goodie, SNSD’s I got a boy is a lively high energy song that can give you a good workout. A classic track that’s great with beginners, I got a boy has relatively easy choreography that features mesmerizing moves that promise to flex your abdominal muscles, especially your upper abs. Not only is this song catchy, but it also has a chorus that will have you singing it for days.
- Big Bang Bang Bang Bang
And this is where I nearly threw in my towel, I’m at my limit when trying to dance to Big Bang’s Bang Bang Bang. Like many of Big Bang’s songs, Bang Bang Bang is a techno song that provides your legs a challenge. Prepare to end your workout with a “bang” with this song and get ready to work your legs to high heavens with numerous quick stomping movements. Be sure to give it your all and hit every move for maximum impact as well!
