Just because it’s the start of a new year doesn’t mean TikTok is going to stop giving us some of the most random trends imaginable. Even the biggest of trends start from the weirdest of places. As 2023 dawned on us, a new trend that radiates pure chaotic energy was born. It involves two pop songs: Nadine Lustre’s classic Paligoy-Ligoy, and NewJeans’ banger Hype Boy. While the two songs operate in their own planes, someone decided to do the choreography to Hybe Boy during the chorus of Paligoy-Ligoy, and just like that, a new trend was born.
While it may look so random, it surprisingly works with Paligoy-Ligoy. In fact, it already being used an astounding 1.2 million times (and counting) on TikTok. Okay, Nadine’s P-pop era resurgence, we see you. If people aren’t remixing Ditto with Kyla’s cover of Love Will Lead You Back, their doing to choreo of Hype Boy to Paligoy-Ligoy. Let’s take a look at some local stars and creators who helped give rise to this Nadine x NewJeans moment.

Lea ate that up as usual. But we should also note that this is the closest we’ve been to getting a TXT and Nadine Lustre or NewJeans interaction. May these crumbs turn into a whole meal this 2023.
