Synonyms of "Legit" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between legit and traditional ?
A: I could see where the confusion might come from. Like for example:
I just saw a traditional 부채춤 performance.
I just saw a legit 부채춤 performance. (Meaning, it's a real, traditional performance)

In this case, legit and traditional can be interchangeable but mostly because legit in this case is used as a slang. (Legit meaning real/actual, shortcut for legitimate)

But in regards to its actual meaning, usually it can't be interchangeable.
