11 K-Pop Idols Who Have Taken On The Challenge Of Trying Pole Dancing
Art comes in many shapes and forms, and sometimes it just so happens to manifest itself on a pole. Although opinions often contrast when it comes to pole dancing, many idols have developed an interest in this type of dance, which proves to be not only a sexy and bold performance but also a very much sought out fitness routine.
Here are, in no particular order, 11 K-pop idols who have given pole dancing a shot.
On an episode of “Home Alone,” Uee shared an aspect of her solo activities, which happened to be pole dancing. Watching the entire duration of her practice, you can see determination and dedication in her performance. This isn’t Uee’s first time pole dancing as it was previously one of After School’s concepts for their song “First Love” where all members gave it a go and slayed at it.

2. Brown Eyed Girls’ Ga In
Following fans’ interest in Ga In’s brief pole dance routine in her music video for “Bloom,” she later released a two-part tutorial showing some of the most classical moves. Needless to say, she swings effortlessly using that pole in such a graceful manner.
3. INFINITE’s Woohyun
On an episode of SBS’s “Star King,” Woohyun took the fitness part of pole dancing to a whole new level as he followed in the coach’s footsteps and reprised a move where he does pushups while hanging upside down from the pole. Talk about rising blood pressure!
In this glimpse of CL’s personal life on “Livin’ The Double Life,” she showed us that – despite being the baddest female – she could also be a total klutz when it comes to pole dancing. Nonetheless, watching her attempt to climb the pole many times while screaming at every trial is simply adorable.
5. CLC’s Eunbin
What started as a hobby for Eunbin eventually became handy on the set of CLC’s “Black Dress” music video. A few weeks before the release of CLC’s title track, the idol showcased her talent wearing a cute black dress in a mesmerizing routine and ended the performance with a complementary dance choreography.
6. Super Junior’s Eunhyuk
This old gem from “Strong Heart” is definitely not for the weak. Eunhyuk channeled his inner pole dancer as he gave the panel and the audience a sultry performance to remember. That jacket alone contributed quite a lot to the act!
7. MAMAMOO’s Solar
In the past couple of years, Solar made sure to put pole dancing back on the map. Having performed a number in MAMAMOO concerts, she took it to the 2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards stage with her “Cleopatra” segment. On an episode of the second season of “My Little Television,” Solar flaunted her skills to the audience. Looking at her training session makes you think that her moves are undoubtedly and literally breathtaking.
8. GFRIEND’s Yuju
Yuju’s vocals are not the only thing that wows the audience. On an episode of “Video Star,” she dropped jaws by revealing her figure skating-inspired ethereal pole skills, abundantly exuding elegance and poise, much to the panel’s amazement.
9. GOT7’s BamBam
BamBam appeared as a guest star in an episode of Dingo’s “The Future Diary” alongside his best friend Yugyeom, where the concept of the show is to write down future actions that the participants are supposed to honor. Per Yugyeom’s instructions, BamBam found himself in a pole dance studio where he easily pulled off a series of classic moves and even added a sexy twist to the mix.
10. T-ara’s Jiyeon
Having picked up pole dancing as her new interest during her hiatus, Jiyeon gave a sneak peek of her talent during her appearance on “My Celeb Roomies” with a segment that is equally gentle and vivid in front of her audience.
SoRi recently uploaded a video of her pole dance experience for beginners, which she learned in six classes only. The captivating aura surrounding her as she freely performs her act makes it all the more appealing.
