These 7 Back-Up Dancers Are So Popular, They Got Their Own Fancams
K-Pop dancers are gaining recognition among K-Pop fans now more than ever, especially with the launch of the competition show Street Woman Fighter where viewers can get to know some of the best dancers in the industry. One way to visibly see the rising popularity of Korean dancers is through the emergence of dancer fancams! Let’s take a look at 7 dancers who received their own fancams while performing on music shows.
1. Kwon Young Deuk (YGX)
One half of the Kwon Twins duo, Young Deuk (also referred to as Deukie) is a dancer at YG Entertainment‘s X Academy. Young Deuk often works with artists under that label. He worked with Lisa for her solo debut “LALISA” and his fancam for a performance with Rosé has over 1.7 million views!
2. Kwon Young Don (YGX)
The second half of the Kwon Twins duo, Young Don also has a fancam from his performance with Rosé! Fans of YG Entertainment artists stan the Kwon Twins almost as much as the idols themselves due to their incredible skills and hard work — it takes a lot to memorize dozens of different singers’ choreography!
3. Kim Ji Hyang (Freemind)
Kim Ji Hyang is a dancer under SUBLIME ARTIST AGENCY. She caught everyone’s attention as one of the back-up dancers for Baekhyun‘s single “Candy!” Her chemistry on-stage with Baekhyun made the dance even more special.

7. Noze (WAYB)
A list of popular dancers with fancams wouldn’t be complete without WAYB’s Noze — even if none of her fancams are official!
