Figure Skater Cha Jun Hwan Goes Viral For His Idol-like Quality On “2022 SBS Gayo Daejun”

Idols have some competition.

Olympic figure skater Cha Jun Hwan already went viral for his visuals once during his season earlier in 2022. His visuals have often been compared to that of an idol, and during the 2022 SBS Gayo Daejun, he brought everyone’s wishes to life by dancing on stage.

He covered BTS‘s “Black Swan” with ENHYPEN‘s Sunghoon and ate. Despite no prior training as an idol, he nailed every move. The audience was particularly in awe of how he made perfect eye contact with the camera like a pro-idol.

Ah f*ck, I’m getting a nosebleed. If a figure skater has better eye contact with the camera than an idol then what are they to do? The industry will get harder, Mr Athlete Cha Jun Hwan.

He really pulled through with the expressions and acting.

We wonder if it was Sunghoon that taught him while they practiced!
