When speaking of idols, a clear image that appears is that of a complete performer. Idols are vocalists, dancers, rappers, visuals, and even role models. They shine on the stage and in front of the camera. However, sometimes, the artists inside the idols find expression behind the scenes through the creative processes of songwriting, production, choreography, composing, and more!
Choreography, much like songwriting or even composing, is the art of making something out of almost nothing. It's like creating a universe from a single atom. It takes talent, expertise, and of course, vision to become a choreographer that can truly send a message with their dance.
Below are some of the best idol choreographers in K-Pop, mentioned in no particular order of ranking. Vote in the poll at the end of the article for who you think is the best of the best!
Former Miss A member Min's passion lies in dancing, and it shows. The way she commands the stage is simply inimitable. Moreover, her choreography is based on her interpretation of the music, which is a rare talent in and of itself.
