Is there anything these idols can't do? They can sing, dance and act, AND write and produce songs; now that's some serious talent.
Here are 7 idols who literally make music from scratch:
1. Woozi (SEVENTEEN)
SEVENTEEN are a group that have had input into almost everything; composing, producing and choreography. Woozi is in charge of creating the groups music and has even co-writeen a song for Ailee called ‘Feelin’ with Eric Nam.
2. Zico (BLOCK B)
Zico started off as an underground rapper, but he didn’t stay there for long, debuting as the leader of Block B. He has 90 tracks under his name. I was surprised to find out that he produced IOI/Gugudan’s Kim Sejeong’s solo track ‘Flower Road’ which is a different style from his usual hip-hop theme, showing off his versatile range.
3. B.I (iKON)
B.I is the youngest member on this list. When he was unable to debut through YG’S survival show Win, he helped the successful group WINNER with their debut release “Empty," composing the lyrics with fellow iKON member Bobby. He has also been credited with co-composing BLACKPINK’s "Whistle." I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!
4. JinYoung (B1A4)
JinYoung is the leader of B1A4, and for a good reason. He has helped the group with tracks such as "What’s Going On?," "Baby Good Night" and "Lonely." He has also composed for IOI, fellow member Baro and lent a hand to all the songs on B1A4’s latest album.
5. Yong JunHyung (BEAST/HIGHLIGHT)
JunHyung is no stranger to creating music. He has composed and produced 118 tracks. He has helped fellow CUBE artist BTOB with music and is doing just about every BEAST/HIGHLIGHT track. Amazing!
6. Jonghyun (SHINee)
Jonghyun has composed for other artists while using his amazing skills to make tracks for SHINee as well. So far he has 58 tracks to his name. He has helped with EXO’s "Playboy," Lee Hi’s "Breathe" and IU’s "A Gloomy Clock."
7. G-Dragon (BIGBANG)
G-Dragon, the man that created "Fantastic Baby;" there was no doubt he’d be on this list. His composing/producing tracks total 161 starting from the early days of BIGBANG. He has helped fellow bandmates Seungri, Daesung and Taeyang with their solo songs and is known for his unique sound globally in the music industry.
