On July 30, Jungkook performed his solo debut track, “Seven,” on the SBS music show Inkigayo. Along with absolutely slaying the performance…


Jungkook also won, and although he was shocked (but nobody else was), his encore was just as iconic.



As Jungkook absolutely aced his stages, someone else caught the eye of netizens, and it was one of the idol’s dancers. Online, a dancer in Jungkook’s performance became a hot topic…


The reason this particular dancer gained attention is because he’s none other than former Trainee A member James. In 2021, netizens discovered a YouTube channel named “Trainee A, who were the newest BIGHIT MUSIC trainees. Sadly, at the end of 2022, it was announced that the team had disbanded.

James instantly gained attention from the moment he was first revealed to the public. Born in Hong Kong in 2005, he moved to South Korea to pursue his idol career and can speak Chinese, Thai, Korean, and English fluently.

After he was first introduced to netizens in 2022, being on stage as a dancer with Jungkook shouldn’t have been a surprise.

Not only is James very athletic, being a Taekwondo athlete and talented hockey player, but he also specializes in dancing and even went to Minnesota in America to train.


After Jungkook’s performance, many fans immediately noticed James; the internet was full of netizens sharing their reactions to the unexpected appearance. For many, they were happy to see that James was seemingly still signed with BIGHIT MUSIC and just how happy he was to be on stage.

It isn’t rare for trainee idols to be backing dancers before they debut or to see videos of idols as backing dancers in the past. Hopefully, it means that James hasn’t lost his desire to become an idol and that he will be able to debut soon.
