techie_ray chose samples recommended by fans, fan rankings, and dances idols themselves have said were difficult. He also chose videos with a fixed camera angle with no backup dancers and pro.

Each group should have more than two members. The video samples are only of title track choreography.

Complexity is determined through the number of distinct poses per second. The more distinct the poses are, the more complex it is. It is also determined by the number of formation changes, which the computer determines through distance changes between the members, and how many heads are seen per frame.

Finally, complexity is also determined by the number of jumps, flips, or floorwork.

LOONA's "Butterfly" is the Female K-Pop Dance with the Most Complex Formation Changes

According to techie_ray's computer analysis, LOONA's choreography for "Butterly" has the most complex formation changes among girl group dances.

This makes sense since LOONA has twelve members, they often use the members to show imagery in their dances, which requires numerous formation changes.

The computer program gave LOONA a formation complexity score of 89.96%.
