As part of the dance team Born Black, Lee Bomin has helped choreograph dance routines for some of the most popular groups in K-Pop, including LOONA, Golden Child, Rocket Punch, and ONEUS. In a new “Comment Defenders” video with AYO on YouTube, she revealed her picks for the best boy group dancers.
When Lee Bomin and fellow dancer Sara were asked to pick the idols with the “prettiest dance moves,” Sara was quick to name BLACKPINK‘s Lisa because of her cool looks, facial expressions, and body proportions. Bomin, on the other hand, had two boy group idols on her mind.
First up: MONSTA X‘s Shownu.
Bomin revealed she met Shownu when they filmed a Pepsi commercial together. While she didn’t elaborate on when that was, it’s possible she may have been referring to the “Summer Taste” music video—a promotional track with Rain, Brave Girls, and ATEEZ as part of Starship Entertainment‘s Pepsi collaboration.
Bomin went on to reveal that when she and Shownu practiced together for the commercial, that’s when she truly knew, “He can dance for sure.”
On top of that, Bomin also named an idol praised by the idol friends she went to school with: ONEUS‘s Hwanwoong.
According to Lee Bomin, Hwanwoong ranked no.1 in his school’s performance test and was famous among the students for his incredible skills. “He was born with it,” Bomin said of his dance talent, adding, “He’s really good.”
