The show must go on - even if the weather is at an extreme! Like your everyday mailman/lady, K-Pop stars will dance and sing, rain or shine, and make sure the performance goes on successfully until the very end. 

However, some of these weather conditions are so insane it is a surprise that these groups were even able to finish performing! Check out the list of idols who pulled through in these inclement weather conditions.

SISTAR have suffered from a few accidents here and there in the past, but this rainy and slippery stage was a disaster waiting to happen. Luckily the girls regained their composure and laughed it off but the weather conditions definitely effected their singing.



Speaking of slippery stages, here is the famous stage that brought G-Friend to popularity (alongside their catchy song, of course!). The girls looked like bowling pins falling left and right on stage, with member Yuju making most of the faceplants.

But this wasn't the first or the last time G-Friend was caught in the rain! Pelting them like bullets, the harsh rain didn't ruin their parade as they carried on with their cute performance below.

Oh My Girl 


Just like G-Friend, Oh My Girl were a victim to rainy, windy outdoor conditions. Like performing on a slip and slide, the girls did their best to maintain their balance and put on a show. It seems it really was a "Windy Day" for these girls. (Yes, I just did that play on words!)

Red Velvet 


Believe it or not, the girls of Red Velvet performed for the 'Gayo Daejun New Year's Special' in -1 degrees Celsius, which is about 29 degree Fahrenheit. These girls must have felt "Dumb Dumb" and numb numb while dancing on stage. What is more shocking is that you can see their breath in the frosty air.



Sadly Red Velvet were not alone as hit boy group BTS suffered in the same cold. They can be seen here practicing in heavy coats before the New Years performance. Just like Red Velvet, they are visibly cold, shivering, and their breaths fog up in the cold winter air. These boys really do need a "Fire"!

Nine Muses 


Nine Muses can be seen dancing and performing "News" in this frigid rain and wind. It was so windy that it blew off member Kyung Li's hat and she fell down along with it on the slippery stage.



Another rainy disaster (practically a monsoon), the girls of f(x) are soaked to the bone as they performed "La Cha Ta" in this extreme downpour. The water is flooding off the stage and it is amazing that they didn't slip and stumble. It is even more shocking that the flimsy, shaking stage could support their weight as well as all the water.


Possibly the worst one yet, the sweethearts of TWICE can be seen showcasing their individual talents and dancing in the freezing snow at a mini fan meeting. (Check the 11:00 mark.) While they have coats on, underneath they are shown wearing short skirts and shirts with little to no coverage. Fashion really is pain, I suppose.

However, snow wasn't their only problem. The girls fell victim to the terrible summer rains as they performed "Like OOH AHH" in their famous short and sexy outfits.


The handsome boys of 2PM were caught in the intense, heavy rain during their 'Open Concert' performance along with other singers like Crush. Although soaked, 2PM continued onward with their complicated dance routine in the downpour.

Girl's Day

The rain continues to be everyone's enemy but, in this case, it turned out to be Girl's Day's best friend! While the conditions are terrible for any idol to perform in, the girls were able to look even cuter despite being completely drenched in the cold rain.

it really seemed inhuman to let these kids perform under such weathers. and with the one for cold weather, can't they let the idols wear something more appropriate? a warmer one, at least? this reminded me of T-ara performing yayayah(was it?) few years ago for a new year event in such flimsy outfit, so pitiful to watch..

I saw quite a few k-pop groups perform in heavy's normal when it's the rainy season in Korea. It's pretty cool experience as an audience but when i saw Infinite's Sunggyu fall on slippery stage,i really hated they have to perform like that....

That was really upsetting to see. He ended up bleeding from his arm and was holding it throughout the performance. It obviously looked like it hurt a lot. And the other members kept slipping and sliding too b/c they were doing the choreos. So Sunggyu told all of them to be careful since he didn't want anyone else falling. It wasn't the first and it definitely won't be the last time Infinite performs in bad weather conditions. There are tons of fancams of concerts and performances of them in the rain.

Someone who specializes in electro-physics! Can you tell me why isn't it possible to put heaters on the stage? Also some South Koreans out there! Is it rude to wear a rain coat on stage?

Glad 2PM got a mention here, they really do work hard through everything.

I love the when it´s raining. Idols are so hot in the rain. Maybe performing in the cold weather, it´s not so good. I prefer more idols soaking wet in rain, cuz they look hot.

f(x) made that rain look like special effect rather than unfortunate weather.

Hmm, *cough* VIXX and Seventeen also performed outside at the MBC Gayo Daejun *cough*

I almost cried because of Gfriend and im not their fan, really everytime i watch that stage i almost tear up :((((( this is not right!!!! Idols look happy all the time but they r struggeling so much i would never be able to do the same, and a lot of people wouldnot be able, still some sit in fron of computer and write hatefull comments...  i bet they apologize because of their stage often too, though when performance isnot good its usually problem of that broadcast station or weather.
