Dancing like it's 1989

Thursday night, my colleagues called me to join them for dinner, drinks, then noraebang 노래방. We wrapped up after 2 a.m.

I pulled out some of my favorite dance moves from yesteryear...

one of my colleagues was mesmerized, after a few more beers he decided to give it a try...

I was casually dressed in a t-shirt, shorts, sandals. Still, I pulled off some of the dance moves.

I don't know if he was wearing his tie when he started dancing, it seemed that he was moving too fast for it to keep up with him. It was agreed that he didn't come close to doing the dance as well as I did. It has been 20 years so I could do them in my sleep.

At about 2:30 a.m. in the morning, as we were waiting for a driver to pick him up and take him home, he continued trying the dance in a parking lot nearby, asking me to do it again so he could follow my lead.

He thought the dance moves were so hip. I didn't have the heart to tell him that the dances are at least 20 years old. If the Running Man suddenly is big in Korea then I'm taking credit for it...
