When K-pop groups are not busy perfecting their own routines and discography, they are most likely jamming out to other hits in the practice room. Don’t believe us? Just check out this list of K-pop dance covers by none other than your favourite idols.
#1 ‘Love Scenario’ – iKON by The Ark
Arguably one of the hottest tracks of the year so far, it’s no wonder ‘Love Scenario’ is so popular amongst fellow idols – but leave it to The Ark to show how you do dance covers right. The now-defunct group is known for their on-point renditions of boy group routines, particularly their BTS-approved cover of ‘Boy In Luv’. Although they’ve since parted ways, it’s great to see the former members getting back together to do what they do best.
#2 ‘BBoom BBoom’ – Momoland by TARGET
TARGET may be new to the scene – having just made their debut earlier this January – but these fresh-faced lads are already giving their peers a run for their money. This electrifying cover of Momoland’s viral banger ‘BBoom BBoom’ in double speed glory is enough to make you swoon over them. Who knew one could make the comical shuffle dance look so darn cool?
#3 ‘Hello B*tches’ – CL, ‘MIC DROP’ – BTS, ‘Hate’ – 4minute by (G)I-DLE
If there’s one rookie group to watch out for this year, it’s (G)I-DLE. Bursting onto the scene with their badass attitude and girl crush vibes, these fierce femmes are clearly not to be messed with – watch ’em kill it on the streets with this impeccable mashup.
#4 ‘MOVE’ – Taemin by Chungha
Is it just us or is Chungha the female version of the SHINee member? We couldn’t think of a better person who can do Taemin’s sensual body rolls and hip sashays justice than our resident dance queen. Girl’s literally oozing with liquid grace!
#5 ‘The Eve’, ‘Diamond’, ‘Call Me Baby’ – EXO by UNI.T
UNI.T members Euijin and Suji showed their love for EXO with a slick dance medley of ‘The Eve’, ‘Diamond’ and ‘Call Me Baby’. Putting their own spin to the routines, the duo displays a sense of fluidity as they effortlessly pull off the powerful choreography.
#6 ‘Black Suit’ – Super Junior by NCT Dream
The Dreamies are all grown up! Busting out move after move in perfect synchronisation, NCT’s youngest unit certainly did their seniors proud with their explosive cover of ‘Black Suit’.
#7 ‘No.1’ – BoA by SEVENTEEN
From boy band remixes of EXO to GOT7, to girl group medleys of Mamamoo to Red Velvet, SEVENTEEN never fails to impress with their dynamic performances. And they prove that they’re still on top of the cover game with the BoA classic, ‘No.1’.
#8 ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ – BLACKPINK by BIGBANG’s Seungri
Although the BIGBANG member uploaded it just for laughs, you can’t deny that dude still got those grooves. Hey BLACKPINK, perhaps you could consider recruiting Seungri as the fifth member? P/S: Watch till the end.
