  1. [14.04.10] Jiyeon's performances of "1MIN1SEC" will be incredibly sexy.. Complete image change After perfecting her extravagant performance for her solo debut, Jiyeon will be heading off to film the music video tomorrow! Jiyeon's solo debut song "1MIN1SEC" was created by Double Sidekick and she has announced today she will film her music video tomorrow. Her music video will be alluring and showcase her as a sexy diva with a bold and aggressive performance. She is aiming to surprise the public by completely changing her image. OSEN recently was able to view the performance of "1MIN1SEC" and revealed it was truly exceptional.. The first word they used to describe it: daebak! OSEN revealed that Jiyeon's choreography consists of sexy gestures, includes a chair, and focuses on showing off her S-line through twisting her pelvis and doing full body waves. The highlight of her choreography is during the chorus when she quickly lifts up her jacket and showing off a part of her body, which is incredibly sleek and toned. She also showcases the features of a women by doing head-to-toe body waves. In addition to that, Jiyeon has a part of her dance where she sits on the floor and her sexy charms are undeniable. Although the dance is incredibly sexy, like T-ara's "Bo Peep Bo Peep" and "Roly-Poly", the dance will appeal to everyone and you can easily follow along because the dance's difficulty is not too hard. It will be a big change for T-ara fans as Jiyeon raises her level of sexy charms to 200%, but T-ara fans will be able to enjoy once again the usual addictive hooks and trademark fun choreography they are used to. *** Source: http://osen.mt.co.kr/article/G1109827498 Credit: Nathaniel @ Diadem
