Taeyang's moves are LIT!
20 May 2017 - 6:00 AM  UPDATED 20 May 2017 - 6:00 AM

When you watch a dance practice video and notice certain members make their moves look effortless, and you think you could (easily) do it too, until you realise it's nowhere near as easy as it looks, because they're dancing machines!

Here are 8 of the best male idol dancers:

1. Lee Taemin (SHINee)

SHINee have some of the hardest dance routines in K-pop. All of the SHINee members are incredible dancers, but if you watch Taemin during a performance, his moves are smooth like butter. 

Check out his incredible moves in SHINee’s dance version of "Your Number."

2. Taeyang (BIGBANG)

Taeyang’s dance moves got a lot of recognition when he first went solo in 2008, gaining worldwide popularity. He followed his roots showing off his talents yet again when he released "Ringa Linga" in 2014, and this year for his amazing Lexus commercial.

Check him out:

3. Yugyeom (GOT7)

The maknae of GOT7 has got some serious moves. I found out about this when I watched the show Hit The Stage where idols competed in a dance off with Yugyeom taking home the crown. His freestyle ability puts him right at the top when I think of the best male idol K-pop dancers.

Check out one of his spectacular performances on Hit The Stage:

4. J-Hope (BTS)

J-Hope has to be one of the most talented dancers in the industry. He has a unique style that really separates him from others. He even creates BTS’ dance choreography, which in itself is truly amazing. He’s loved by many for a reason!

Check out one of J-Hope’s ridiculous dance sessions:

5. Kai (EXO)

Kai was labelled as an amazing dancer ever since EXO debuted in 2012. He hasn’t let anyone down, proving he can make even the most intense choreography SM Entertainment create, look simple. 

Check out the dance practice version of "History" to see what I’m talking about:

6. Hoya (INFINITE)

INFINITE are known for their knife-like choreography, and for the members always being in sync. Hoya can dance to just about any genre of music and always works hard to perfect his moves. He is the dance leader along with fellow member Dongwoo, helping the members perform their best. 

Check out Hoya’s effortless Hit The Stage performance:

7. EunHyuk (Super Junior)

Even though Super Junior have a lot of members it’s easy to spot EunHyuk from a mile away because of his slick moves. Super Junior don’t have the most difficult choreography but when EunHyuk’s been on variety shows, he’s never afraid to show off his skills and bust a move. 

Check out the dance version of Super Junior’s "Spy" to see him in action:

8. Yunho (TVXQ)

Yunho was given the nickname ‘Dance Machine’ by his fans so there’s no way he’s missing out on this list. He’s always ready to let loose when music comes on. In fact, I think he’s danced on just about every program in South Korea because they always ask him to; a true dance legend. 

Check out his amazing moves in TVXQ’s "Catch Me:"
