After “Gangnam Style” and “Harlem Shake” taken over the world by storm, it seems like people are never going to get enough of the dancing craze as yet another dance move has gone viral on the web.

According to our source, the new dance craze, the “Kiyomi/Gwiyomi Player”, has recently become the latest web-viral sensation among Thai teenagers. “Gwiyomi” translated into English means someone who is cute hence the new dance craze literally means “cute player”.

The internet meme is originated from Korean boy band Btob’s member Jung Ilhoon who created a series of hand movements accompanying the song “Kiyomi Song”. The song was sung by Korean female artist Hari which describes the love of a girl and a boy.

The dance is also called as “1+1=Gwiyomi” and many Kpop stars including EXO K’s Sehun, Miss A’s Suzy, Girls’ Generation’s Soo Young, Infinite’s Sung Kyu, SISTAR’s Soyou and more have jumped into the trend and garnered a lot of attention from the teenage fans especially overseas fans.

Many have uploaded videos of themselves doing the 50-second dance routine on the YouTube social network and a Thai netizen commented“Goodbye Harlem Shake, Hello Kiyomi.” Another poster wrote “It’s the new Gangnam Style.”

Not sure how you can do it? Here’s a “Gwiyomi Player” demonstrated by Btob’s Ilhoon.
