There's a reason why a number of K-pop stars are in good shape - they're really athletic! In fact, some stars were so good at certain sports that they could've gone pro if it weren't for the lure of K-pop!
So without further ado, here are 10 K-pop stars who happen to also be great athletes.
10. VIXX's Leo
Leo was a prodigy who participated in soccer, Tae Kwon Do, swimming and boxing. However, he had a special love for soccer, so much so that he was on the Junior National Team from 2004 to 2007!
9. Miss A's Jia
Jia had never tried cheerleading prior to her appearance on "Star King", but she was so naturally athletic that she fooled everyone!

8. 2PM's Nichkhun
Before his K-pop days, Nichkhun trained as a professional badminton player. In fact, he started at the age of nine and could've progressed quite far had he not discovered music!

2. GOT7's Jackson
As a K-pop star, Jackson is known for his energetic disposition, dancing skills, and penchant for doing somersaults at will. But before all that, he was a fencer for the Hong Kong fencing team - which explains why he is so energetic all the time!

1. f(x)'s Victoria
There's a very good reason why Victoria rocks at dancing - she studied at the Beijing Dance Academy since she was very young! She hasn't really had the need to show her flexibility since joining f(x), but that doesn't mean she's lost it. Check out Victoria's ridiculous flexibility right here:
