Watch: Red Velvet’s Wendy Has Her Dance Skills Put To The Test With Help From NCT’s Jisung
During the “Fact Check” segment of the group’s appearance on JTBC’s “Idol Room,” Jung Hyung Don and Defconn asked Wendy if she ever said, “I’m the dancing queen of Red Velvet.” Though she denied it and said she couldn’t remember, the two MCs were ready with video proof of her words. Joy was ready to back her member up though as she said, “Even if it’s the same dance, Wendy has this way of making it her own.”
Jung Hyung Don then asked where Wendy would rank herself as a dancer in SM. When she couldn’t answer, Red Velvet was asked who were the top dancers in the agency. The members picked BoA as the top dancer, followed by TVXQ’s Yunho, SHINee’s Taemin, and Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon. The MCs teased her and said, “And Wendy is fifth, right? SM Five is right there.”
In order to prove Wendy’s prowess as a dancer, “Idol Room” had her face off against a male idol and brought out NCT’s youngest member Jisung, who is known for being quite the dancer. Red Velvet was delighted to see their junior and greeted him warmly. When asked about Wendy’s dancing skills, Jisung jokingly replied, “I know her for her singing. But her dancing…?”
Then, the two engaged in a fierce dance battle to see who was the better dancer. By the end of it, Jisung had everyone laughing when he said, “I used to associate Wendy with singing, but now I know why she’s part of SM Five. I think she could aim for SM Four,” and Wendy’s horrified expression at that sentiment only had everyone laughing even harder. On a more serious note, Wendy said, “I wasn’t a dancer before. It was only recently that I began to enjoy dancing. I told myself, even if I’m not good at it, I should enjoy myself and that’s what’s important,” and Jisung took her words to heart.
