    Junhoe has always been so talented.He became the main vocalist of his group rather than the main dancer.
    B.I is the same person who choreographed Sinosijak


    I actually watched this episode back then and I really liked him since he was really savage

    Guys I think some people nicknamed him 'Michael Jackson of Korea'

    and like @figueres said I don't think the OP meant it like that

    He has been known as the Korean Micheal Jackson since he was 13

    I am pretty sure Koreans are the ones to decide who they want to give the title to.

    there's difference between giving someone a nickname like that and then saying "he's exactly like him, just korean"

    I thought I saw comments on him being a korean mj before so it makes sense now
    The korean adele I'm not too familiar with
    But Lee Hi's vocals are perfection so I see what they mean

    I am representing my opinion on the matter. Whether he has the title or not, he doesn't have the talent to back it up. Korean public is free to call the idols whatever they want.

    The closest idol that would be anywhere near Michael Jackson territory to me would be either a Shinee member or a BTS member based on dance moves. Music and dance wise, I'd give the award to Taemin or Jonghyun since they had all those LA Reid-sounding new jack swing tracks anyway.

    Whoever gave him the title, still doesn't seem to really fit.

    You do know that Rain has very often been called the Michael Jackson of Asia? By Koreans and Asians. . . it's actually one of his titles.

    Huh... Never seen him be referred to as such except by you...
    I have no idea where you've seen people seriously call him that. I know he's referred to as a major Michael Jackson fan tho, but it doesn't seem right to call him Michael Jackson of Korea. He just simply isn't good enough...

    No one in Korea (except maybe a few fans) thinks of him like that, cause there's already one famous Korean Michael Jackson. His name is Park Nam Jung.






    Notice the title, comments and the way he's introduced in these videos? The broadcasting stations and netizens literally refer to him as 한국의 마이클잭슨 = Michael Jackson of Korea.

    In terms of idols, there's also already others who are much more associated with Michael Jackson than him, e.g. Yunho. I don't think it's wise of iKonics to make up rumors to try and claim this name for him...
