18 K-Pop Encore Stages That Are Definitely Out Of The Box

1. TWICE’s cool win
TWICE did promise that if they came in number one for “Dance The Night Away” they’d sing their encore with ice cubes in their mouths!
And they certainly delivered making their #DanceTheNightAway3rdWin ceremony incredibly refreshing, cute, and memorable!

Well, to be honest, a lot of trophies do resemble giant cups…
So we can’t really blame Jungkook from taking a big sip from it during their encore stage of “Run”!
3. Wanna One’s memeful moment
What happens when you give the members of Wanna One some makeup and the chance to use them onstage during an encore stage of “Light”?

4. BIGBANG’s big surprise
G-Dragon and TOP were at Inkigayo performing “Zutter” but that’s not the song that won that week! Instead, it was “Let’s Not Fall In Love”.
So when it came down to it, the two gathered up their courage and sang the entire song themselves!
5. SHINee putting their maknae‘s life on the line
SHINee have done a whole bunch of wacky and wonderful things during their encore stages over the years but there is one particular encore stage of “Dream Girl” that always shocks fans…
With amazing acrobatic skills! And don’t worry Taemin gets out of this situation just fine!
6. Red Velvet’s bingsu break
When Red Velvet won with “Power Up” they decided to celebrate with something refreshing and cool!
A delicious bingsu! As many fans have pointed out the girls were so focused on the frozen treat that they forgot to sing in some parts. But it’s okay, we all totally understand!
7. MAMAMOO’s mukbang
Who wouldn’t want a snack after winning big? And MAMAMOO was going to celebrate with a ramen mukbang!

And Tiffany was more than happy to oblige!
10. EXO’s real relay problems
EXO decided to spice things up for the “Tempo” encore performance by doing a relay dance. The only problem was they weren’t all too sure how to do it!
Luckily, it didn’t take them long to figure it out and create something incredibly memorable!
11. SHINee’s not so happy married life
When SHINee won with “Married To The Music” they…err…showed how happy they were to win with this now infamous sad jam.
Despite their sad jams, they were actually really happy and wanted to bring a smile to Shawols faces with these particular display. If it didn’t make you smile, we don’t know what will!
12. BTS’s endless bag of tricks
After BTS won on Music Bank with “IDOL” they popped off the stage to go grab a few items…
