Techtonik, an increasingly popular dance in Europe which includes movements of the hands and feet, moving freely to the rhythm. Tecktonik is a form of dance that is very popular in France and also has made it's way to Israel and now South Korea.


Kpop Singers and dancers like Goo Joon Yup, Hwang Bo and Chunja have been marking the existence of Tecktonik in Korea. Goo Joon Yup - who runs some clubs in Seoul - is well known for being one of the best Tecktonik DJ's in South-Korea. He plays music mixed with songs that he wrote by himself and performs his own style of Tecktonik dance which dedicates a lot in the development of this genre in the North-East Asian territory. Hwang Bo who recently released her latest abum represents her title song "Getting Hot" and Chunja her hit song "Booming." In South-Korea, Tecktonik is not only popular in the singer's zone. Actors like Jang Geun Suk and Go Ah Ra, the models in Etude Cosmetics line, have made Tecktonik even more popular by performing their dance - also recently very popular on the internet - at the latest Etude Cosmetic commericials.

ARRRGGG!!! CAN I STOP HEARING ABOUT THAT DANCE?!

Shit..seriously... My best friend and me hate it... everyone in france dances that...Montreal... (Not really europe though o)O)

....

Oki...Frankly I like it (Like a little...smaller then a crumble) ...But no offence...South Koreans,,, don't pull it off that good.

Edit : Tektonik is not just the dance moves...it the jeans the hairstyle ...the shoes...You've got to be pretty skinny too....
