Update with new video:
On April 27th, “Dancing with the Stars Season II” aired its first episode, which served as a prologue to introduce the stars of the cast and their dance partners. Hyoyeon’s partner was revealed to be Kim Hyungsuk, a dancer who participated in the 2012 Taiwan International Open and won first place at the 2007 Gangnam Festival.
The two introduced themselves and held their first practice session together, going over steps for a dance with a style Hyoyeon wasn’t familiar with. Hyoyeon then revealed that though she’s performed many types of dances in the past, she has never danced closely with a partner, and thus wasn’t used to a dance that called for being touched.
Starting next week, episodes of “Dancing with the Stars Season II” will be broadcasted live every Friday at 9:55 PM KST.

Hyoyeon will be joining MBC’s “Dancing with the Stars Season II”, which will begin airing on April 27th. An MBC staff member stated, “After confirming her participation, Hyoyeon has been busy practicing. You will get to see a new side of Hyoyeon.”
Hyoyeon is one of the dancers in Girls’ Generation. Because of this, the producers have high expectations for her. A source stated, “As expectations are high, Hyoyeon has also been practicing a lot. It will be a chance for Hyoyeon to show off free dances unlike Girls’ Generation’s choreography.”
Other stars such as Tony An and actress Choi Yeo Jin will be joining Hyoyeon on the show. Recording for the first episode was finished on April 15th. The first episode of “Dancing with the Stars Season II” will air on April 27th at 9:55pm KST, and live broadcasts of the show will begin May 4th.
