f(x)’s Sulli made a confession recently about how Super Junior’s Heechul made her cry.
On a recent broadcast of SBS Power FM “Kim Heechul’s Young Street,” Sulli, along with SNSD’s Jessica and Super Junior’s Donghae made an appearance as guests.
Regarding Heechul’s first impression, Jessica responded, “In addition to being a person who believed he was all that, Heechul also had a very cold personality,” making Heechul flustered.
Additionally, Sulli said her first impression of Heechul was “weird.” She said, “He bothered me so much throughout the years. When I first met Heechul, I was only a 12 year old little girl, but he bothered me so I cried a lot.”
He expressed, “The management company informed me that a new trainee was coming from Kang Won Do so I was to retrieve him. I went with Yunho to get him, but throughout the entire trip I was so lazy that I kept complaining. However, when I got there I became polite and introduced myself.”
To these comments, the audience complimented about the radio show, “It was a fun show because it was honest,” and “After hearing from the guests, I feel closer to the radio DJ.” Heechul’s radio airs every night from 8 – 10pm.
In Kpop, the majority of idol groups sing and dance when they’re performing on a music show or at a concert. Many times, they also have friendly dance battles against each other. Although many idols are very talented dancers, only the most talented will stand out. Let’s see who made that list.
In 10th place is 2NE1’s fierce dancer Minji. Although she is only 16 years old (17 in Korea), she can really rock those moves. In 9th place we have BEAST’s Lee KiKwang (otherwise known as AJ).
In 8th place came SHINee’s maknae Taemin, who, like Minji, is also at the young age of 16, but probably the best dancer in the entire group. In 7th is 4Minute’s Hyuna. As you probably saw from one of her Change performances, Hyuna is one skilled dancer. In front of Hyuna in 6th place is Super Junior’s Shindong, and in 5th place is Big Bang’s Taeyang. After School’s leader Gahee placed 4th on the chart.
Let’s see who Korean netizens picked as the top 3 idol dancers in Korea. In third place they picked DBSK’s talented leader U-Know Yunho, while Super Junior’s Eunhyuk snabbed second place.
So in the end, who was chosen as the best idol dancer? 2PM’s former leader Jaebum! As seen through his charismatic performances both on stage in Korea and back in Seattle, Washington, Jaebum has captured the hearts of many with his perfect dance moves.
With Big Bang having their successful debut in Japan, they had been one of the most sought after idols there. Alongside with them who’s gaining lots of supporters in Japan is their co-YG Family member, 2NE1.
