How well do you know the dance queen that is CHUNGHA? Here’s a chance for you to boost your knowledge! 

Dance superstar CHUNG HA has been through a lot these past three years, ever since placing fourth on Produce 101 and entering the wildly successful group I.O.I. She’s gone solo and had all of her EPs chart in the Korean top 10 with two singles in the top 3. Whether you’re new to CHUNGHA or a die-hard fan, here are six videos of peak CHUNG HA to liven up your day. 

1. CHUNGHA’s jaw-dropping freestyle to Beyonce in Produce 101

When competing against 100 other girls, it’s hard to stand out. But that’s not the case for CHUNGHA. What begins as a simple cover quickly turns into a jaw-dropping spectacle when CHUNGHA is called upon by the judges. This clip is considered legendary across all Produce 101 seasons and for good reason. CHUNGHA is asked to freestyle to a random song, at which point Beyonce’s “Yonce” plays. You know what? Just watch the video.

2. CHUNGHA choreographs Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang” 

“Bang Bang” has over one billion views on YouTube, so I’m sure that having to choreograph and perform the track would have been more than stressful for CHUNGHA. Nevertheless, the Dance Avengers emerge in full force as seven Produce 101 members let loose one of the best group performances in the program’s history.

3. CHUNGHA wins Music Bank, dances with manager

CHUNGHA dancing with her manager is a moment of pure joy that you can’t forget. While performing a victory encore of “Gotta Go”, she is consumed by tears and smiles as her manager slowly comes onto stage. CHUNGHA reminds us that winning is only meaningful when you have people to share that joy with.

4. CHUNGHA’s live performances of “Snapping”, compiled

When performing the same song dozens or hundreds of times a year, the most important thing isn’t the choreography or what you’re wearing, but rather the consistency with which you can deliver those performances. CHUNGHA’s ‘dancing queen’ status is on full display in this clip as the editor cuts between several live performances of CHUNGHA’s “Snapping”. Every performance is flawless and she couldn’t look any cooler.

5. Epic compilation of CHUNG HA freestyle dancing

Having lived in the United States and South Korea, the cultural influences from both environments enable CHUNGHA’s freestyle dancing to be dynamic and full of surprises. For your pleasure, here is seven minutes of CHUNGHA being an absolute fire dancer as she pumps through mega-hits like Rihanna’s “Work” and Camila Cabello’s “Havana”

6. Chungha’s interview at SXSW

CHUNGHA’s interview is eye-opening for a number of reasons. Firstly, she gets in-depth about her childhood in Dallas, Texas and the fact that her family has been living in the U.S.A the entire time she’s been in Korea. Secondly, fans get to hear her speaking in English as she articulates the difficulties that come with aspiring to be a K-pop star. Finally, she tells us about her wish to create confident lyrics and make a song completely in English.
