Korean idols and celebrities battled it out for athletic dominance at the annual Idol Star Athletics Championships aired via MBC on September 15th. Some idols may have little experience in the categories they participated in, but for Cosmic Girls’ Cheng Xiao (Sungso), it was quite the contrary.
The Chinese girl group member from Starship Entertainment showed off her extensive expertise in dance during her rhythmic gymnastics performance at the Idol Star Athletic Championships. Competing against Lovelyz‘s Yein, TWICE‘s Mina, KARA‘s Youngji, AOA‘s Chanmi, FIESTAR‘s Cao Lu, and Brave Girls‘ Eunji, Cheng Xiao defeated all six of them with her stunning performance and grace.
After the win, Cosmic Girls released on Instagram old photos of Cheng Xiao practicing ballet and dance as a child, showing off the idol’s impressive history with performing arts prior to debuting as the main dancer of the girl group. The photos reaffirmed Cheng Xiao’s gold medal on the Chuseok holiday special broadcast.
