K-Pop Idols Who You May Not Have Known Were Once Backup Dancers

Started from the bottom now we here!



It’s safe to say die-hard K-Pop fans are all familiar with the pre-debut process that every Korean artist you know today has gone through. Before an idol makes their debut, they typically train for years with their company or label in order to increase their singing skills, performance ability and to polish their skills in all aspects of becoming a K-Pop idol. While this is usually done behind the scenes at most times and the trainee won’t appear on stage until their debut, however, exposure never hurts anyone right? There have been a number of exceptions to this! In addition to their rigorous training, some artists had experiences as backup dancers for other artists.
