There are a lot of incredibly talented K-pop idols out there, but some truly go above and beyond. Their special skills make them amazing dancers and overall awesome performers, and we’re willing to bet that in another life they could’ve been gymnasts too. From unbelievable flips and tricks to some mind-boggling flexibility feats, here are nine K-pop idols that wow us with their athletic abilities.
1. SEVENTEEN’s The8
He may seem unassuming at first, but never underestimate the power of SEVENTEEN’s The8! He should get points for his super suave mannerism alone – the way in which he casually pulls off this incredible feat of tumbling have the hosts of “Ask Us Anything” (and viewers too!) totally stunned. If he can pull this off in a dress shirt and slacks, there’s no doubt he’d be a phenomenal gymnast!
2. WJSN’s Cheng Xiao
Cheng Xiao has repeatedly floored viewers with her gorgeous rhythmic gymnastics routines, and it’s not too much of a stretch to say that her skills would make her an amazing gymnast too! Sometimes she seems more liquid than human thanks to her incredible flexibility and natural grace. Her background in traditional Chinese dance definitely sets her on the path to idol/gymnast stardom!
3. NCT/WayV’s WinWin
Another idol with a background in Chinese dance, WinWin’s skill and grace when dancing definitely makes him a standout in the K-pop world. Plus, his tricks are so fluid that he almost seems to hover in the air before landing lightly on the ground. The ease with which he can pull off a range of incredible acrobatic feats and his remarkable flexibility make him a great candidate for gymnastics.
