SK Telecom T1 fans can see first hand the dance moves Bae “Bang” Jun-sik’s used for his latest League of Legends World Championship skin.

Riot Games released Tuesday another video going behind the scenes with the SKT players for the development of their skins for winning last year’s worlds. The one-minute clip included snippets of each SKT player performing the recall of his skin. The highlights include Bae “Bengi” Seung-ung pounding his desk, coach Kim “kkOma” Jung-gyun face-palming and Bang dancing.

Bang’s dance came from a KPOP song “Bang, Bang, Bang,” by the group Big Bang. Riot told him it could be included with his skin as long as he performed the dance move. So he did.

“I did dance and I told them base it on the music video more than anything,” he said. “It turned out really great.”

The skins, which were first teased Friday by Riot, also included player signatures. They have not been released yet, but the reception to the teasers has been overwhelmingly positive. That’s important after last year saw a largely unsatisfactory response to the skins, which also came out much later and with much less fanfare than fans had hoped.
