Rapper and singer Jessi‘s newest hit song, “ZOOM” has quickly taken root on TikTok, where the “ZOOM In ZOOM Out” dance challenge has captured the interest of fans and celebrities alike.
Being a great friend and role model to many within the Korean entertainment industry, Jessi met up with fellow artists to film their own versions of the dance challenge.
1. La Chica Dance Crew
Jessi partnered with the La Chica dance crew of Street Woman Fighter fame to make the “ZOOM” choreography, so naturally she featured them in five different TikTok videos to promote the dance challenge.
In two out of the five videos, Jessi and La Chica dance with sharp and powerful moves.
With my babies ❤️ #zoomchallenge
In another, the La Chica members pretend to pester Jessi for a picture before they all slip into the choreography.
This clip features a behind the scenes clip of Jessi and La Chica in the M2 “Relay Dance” YouTube video.
Last but not least, in this funny TikTok skit, Jessi begs La Chica member Gabee to do the challenge on film for her.
2. Jessi’s 6th Sense Co-stars
Jessi shows her silly side as she moves alongside her 6th Sense co-cast members in a line relay.

3. TXT’s Yeonjun and Soobin

4. ITZY’s Yeji, Chaeryeong, and Yuna
Jessi took a visit to the JYP Entertainment dance practice room to film this cute cover with Yeji, Chaeryeong, and Yuna.
While Jessi was able to meet with the above artists in person, she also reposted a few artists doing the “ZOOM In ZOOM Out” challenge to her social media channels, showing her appreciation.
5. ATEEZ’s San and Seonghwa
Members San and Seonghwa did the challenge in their free time during their THE FELLOWSHIP: MAP THE TREASURE world tour in Europe.
Jessi reposted the video with the caption, “내 동생들 최고 … Europe tour 잘하고 한국에서봐” (My juniors are the best … Do well on your Europe tour and I’ll see you in Korea), combined with a slew of blushing and fire emoji.
P NATION label head PSY loves supporting his artists in any way he can. Not only did he upload this funny video of himself singing the lyrics of “ZOOM”, in her repost Jessi even mentions that he had a cameo as a catfished version of herself in the music video.

As Jessi holds her phone at the very end of the music video, you can see PSY edited into a photo wearing a pink dress and long black hair.
Honorable Mention: Grandpa Chan
While not an artist or celebrity in the Korean entertainment industry in the traditional sense, Jessi reposted this video of viral 79 year old grandparent TikTokers @grandpachan dancing to the “ZOOM In ZOOM Out Challenge”, showing that anyone can dance along to the song regardless of age!
