Korean-pop group BlackPink’s dance cover contest has awarded the 2nd prize to the Philippines’ Andree “AC” Bonifacio for her viral dance cover of “How You Like That!”
The Filipina performer was announced on July 28, 2020, as the 2nd place winner of the famed K-pop girl group’s contest for their new song release.
AC Bonifacio was the only solo performer among the five winners of the dance cover online contest won by South Korea’s girl group, Premium Dance Studio-Yemin.
The 17-year-old dancer says she was overwhelmed by the win. “Hello, we just figured out that we won! Di po namin alam (We don’t know) what to do. I love you all thank you so much [Blackpink],” Bonifacio wrote in her Instagram story.
Bonifacio’s winning entry went viral in July, garnering a million views after being posted less than a day on YouTube.
Netizens praised Bonifacio for her all-out dance performance as she transformed into different looks inspired by the girl group’s cast members.
In a social media post, Bonifacio shares that the song gave her courage. “The song is about eagerness and confidence, “to rise high in the midst of darkness”. I found strength through Blackpink’s music that even in the darkest times we should persevere and fight through. So, here’s a dance cover of Blackpink’s newest song, How You Like That!”
AC is a dancer, singer, and actress. She, along with Lucky Ancheta formed the dancing tandem Lucky Aces in 2012. The pair was featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and performed with Ariana Grande.
