Kpop as an industry shines because the idols are talented at dancing and singing/rapping. One of the most amusing phenomenons for me and millions of other kpop fans is how the idols keep their vocals stable while performing such tiring dance numbers. They can bend their body like it’s rubber. Kpop idols spend 7- 8 or more hours every day perfecting their dance moves. Fans are more attracted to the idols who dance compared to those who solely sing or rap. Hence, a good dancer equates to a stronger fanbase which is why agencies implement it.
Almost every kpop idol is a great dancer because they work hard and can achieve almost anything. There are a few who still stand out like diamonds among the gold. If you are interested in knowing who the best dancers in kpop are then keep reading.
