Mastering the skill of dance is just as important as being a great rapper and singer in the K-pop industry. I dare you to name one idol who isn't a good dancer, I dare you, go ahead, try it. You couldn't come up with anyone, could you? While all are great in the land of pop and locks, there are a select few of female idols who were born with the gift of dance. Here are the ladies whose bodies move like water and possess the dancing skills to form a dancing army.
Miss A's Min blows my mind. I've been watching videos of this girl shaking her groove thang since four years back, and I just can't get enough of her talent. Before making her debut with Miss A, Min made up one half of a dance duo called "Little Winners," with Girls Generation member, Hyoyeon. The two of these together in one video will literally implode your mind. Check out a clip of them below:
Girls Generation's Hyoyeon is the group's best dancer and like Min, she's got the skills to compete against some of the best hip-hop dancers in the world. The 23-year-old learned hip-hop, jazz, and latin dance at a local hip-hop school in her neighborhood when she was just a young gal in elementary school. SHe attended a prestigious dancing school in Korea called Winners Dance School which specializes in different hip-hop dancing styles. She's worked with some of the top ranking choreographers in both America and Korea to hone in her skills. We usually get to see the young starlet get down and dirty during dancing solo breaks in some of the group's hit songs like, "Into the New World."
2NE1's Minzy is one of my favorite youngsters and dancers in K-pop. Known for her splits, and hip-hopping ways, Minzy is a dancing force to be reckon with. As a young girl, she competed in loads of dance competitions and was discovered by YG Entertainment when she uploaded a video of her dancing on the Internet. Where does Minzy get her talent from? Her grandmother, Gong Okjin, is a legendary folk dancer in Korea so I guess you can say that it was always in her genes to become one of the most talented movers in the entertainment industry.
After School graduate Park Kahi began dancing at the age of 16 when she fell in love with hip hop group Roo'ra. Unfortunately, due to her dismay, Kahi's father wasn't too keen on her becoming a performer and demanded her to go to school instead of pursing her dreams of becoming a dancer. Despite the setback, she began a career in dance at the age of 18 as a backup dancer. Her big break came in 2000 when the long-legged beauty was picked to be the lead dancer in DJ Doc's "Run To You," video. She has been a backup dancer for such artists like BoA, JinuSean, 1TYM, Eun Ji Won, and Country Kko Kko. Fortunately for her, the former After School leader's backup dancer days are over and she is now focusing on a solo career as a pop singing and dancing superstar.
