V’s Gesture of Support
In the Instagram post, V was seen wearing a blue hoodie and holding a biscuit with the word “Bebe” on it, which coincidentally happens to be the name of Bada Lee’s crew. The color blue also happens to be the official color of Bada Lee’s team on the show. This thoughtful gesture from V garnered attention from fans and the dance community alike.
Bada Lee’s Playful Reaction
Bada Lee, a renowned choreographer responsible for crafting dance moves for various K-pop songs, including aespa’s “Next Level” and Kai’s “Rover,” playfully reacted to V’s post. On October 4, she shared V’s Instagram post on her own account via a story. In her response, she described V’s gesture as “cute” and humorously pointed out that he was wearing blue, which coincided perfectly with her team’s concept on the show.
V and Bada Lee had previously collaborated in September of the same year on Bada Lee’s “Smoke Challenge.” Dancer GOF from Bank II Brothers, who had participated in the previous season of “Street Man Fighter,” was also part of the collaboration. V’s smooth execution of the choreography and his unique flair during the challenge gained significant attention from fans and dance enthusiasts.
