They say you can tell a lot about a person from their freestyle dance moves. Some people may even argue that it shows just how good a dancer someone is! While we know that all K-Pop idols are amazing dancers, there are some that have further proven their dancing abilities through freestyle. Without further ado and in no particular order, here are some of the best freestyle dancers in K-Pop!
1. Taemin (SHINee)
Taemin is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to dancing. He’s been known as a great dancer for what seems like forever and there is a very good reason for it. He’s got some serious moves and even when he’s asked to perform something off the cuff he totally delivers!
2. Kai (EXO)
There’s a reason why Kai is considered to be one of the main dancers in EXO. Every single move he makes, whether rehearsed or not, is always executed so flawlessly that it looks like he spent hours in the practice room!
3. J-Hope (BTS)
J-Hope has always been an exceptional dancer and has amazed fans and non-fans alike with his powerful moves. Whether those moves are choreographed to perfection or not, J-Hope’s got some serious skills that have left many people speechless.
4. Minzy (former 2NE1 member)
Minzy might not be the golden maknae but she probably should be considered one since she played the role of lead vocalist, rapper, and dancer! And while each of her skills were amazing, fans still sometimes can’t get over her dancing moves!
Some people might argue that the freestyle section on shows like Produce 101 weren’t really freestyle since they likely got to practice beforehand. But even if it isn’t true freestyle, Chungha‘s moves on the show were incredible and since then she’s proved time and again that she can dance!
6. Jongup (B.A.P)
Everyone might be more familiar with Zelo‘s freestyle moves since he showcases them a lot more but his hyung has some seriously killer moves too! Jongup‘s dance skills are seriously amazing and will make your jaw drop!
7. Hyoyeon (Girls’ Generation)
Only a non-K-Pop fan wouldn’t know about Hyoyeon‘s incredible dancing abilities. This girl has been killing it from day one and seriously impressing. When she dances it’s almost impossible to take your eyes off of her and we’re pretty sure that she could dance to any song on the planet!
8. Ong Seongwoo (Wanna One)
To some Ong Seonwoo might be best known for his visuals, to others it’s his singing ability that strikes a chord, and still others might know him from his time as an MC. But everyone should also be recognizing him for his dance moves!
9. Rocky (ASTRO)
Rocky‘s dancing skills have been tested on multiple occasions and he always delivers. Whether it’s dancing to children’s songs on The Immigration or a techno beat on Hit The Stage, Rocky has definitely proven he can freestyle with the best of them.
10. Ten (NCT)
Ten‘s flying feet move so fast they’re almost a blur! Seriously, Ten can move! When Ten performed on Hit The Stage, he literally had jaws dropping. Then again with fancy footwork like that, it’s no wonder so many people were left with their jaws on the floor.
11. Hoshi (SEVENTEEN)
If you’ve never seen Hoshi‘s freestyle performance to “Strawberry Bubblegum” you’ve been missing out! If you think you’re going to experience something cute from the song title, think again because this SEVENTEEN member has some seriously killer moves that he’s displayed on more than one occasion.
12. Min (former miss a member)
Every move Min made could leave the person watching speechless. Whenever she displayed these skills you knew that it was no joke. And she was unrivaled in her popping freestyle moves.
13. Seunghoon (WINNER)
If you’ve ever watched K-Pop Star then you know just what an amazing freestyle dancer Seunghoon is. It didn’t matter if he what he was doing or what setting he was in, he totally made it work. Of course, he also gets to show some of those skills off when he’s performing with the rest of WINNER!
14. Yibo (UNIQ)
While UNIQ might be best known for their super sexy “EOEO” dance moves, there should be at least one member that gets some major recognition for their freestyle. The amount of control Yibo has over his movements is insane. His moves are so in control and fluid that you’ll be left wondering how he does it!
15. Kahi (former After School member)
There is a reason that Kahi was a dance trainer on Produce 101 because her moves have always been killer. Since her days in After School, Kahi has proven she’s got some mad skills when it comes to the dance floor. If you’ve ever seen her in action, then you know that she has the ability to blow you away!
