Netizens recently shared who they believe is the current best male and female K-Pop dancers in the game right now. They believe that these idols shine on stage and raise the overall quality of the group's performance.
1. EXO's Kai
Kai is active as the main dancer of EXO and SuperM. His powerful and hard-hitting dance lines have earned praise from both critics and passing viewers. Prior to his debut, he had experience in ballet, which provides him with a balance and fluidity that the other members may not have.
One thing that fans admire about Kai is that it seems he genuinely loves the stage. Fans commented on the fire in his eyes when he dances, and how he is able to fully capture the emotions of a song - while other idols merely dance to the song, Kai himself becomes the visual representation of it. He's a dancer who really loves what he does.
2. BTS's Jimin
Jimin is BTS's main dancer and lead vocal. Prior to his debut with the group, he was a modern dance major who also had background in popping. He also has a background in ballet and contemporary.
His dance style has been hailed as being fluid, elegant, graceful, and dynamic. Despite BTS having more hip-hop-inspired dance moves, he incorporates the techniques he learned from his past into BTS's choreography. He oozes smoothness, able to look graceful despite the hard-hitting moves; gentle, yet powerful. His background in more expressive dance forms also helps with BTS's dances, as they usually tell a story. He is able to show what the song is trying to say with his dance.
3. SEVENTEEN's Hoshi
Hoshi is SEVENTEEN's main dancer and leader of the performance unit. He has helped with many of SEVENTEEN's choreography.
Prior to his debut with SEVENTEEN, he was a taekwondo champion and even had a black belt in the sport. He became interested in dancing through taekwondo, as the sport poses are similar to dance moves. When he was in middle school, he created his own dance club and participated in competitions.
Netizens have described his dance style as powerful - despite looking adorable off-stage, he is full of charisma on-stage, putting all of his energy into perfecting the dance. Many also praise him for helping create the dances of SEVENTEEN's song and making sure that not only him but the other members can execute it perfectly.
