Im Nayoung was once one of the most popular girl group leaders ever. She led I.O.I, which was formed through the reality survival show, Produce 101. I.O.I quickly became one of the most popular K-Pop girl groups before they disbanded as promised. Following that, she led PRISTIN until the group also disbanded in 2019.
Since then, she has been active as an actress. She has been slowly working her way up, playing supporting roles in Flower Of Evil, Imitation, and more. Recently, she got the chance to appear on a variety show for the first time in awhile. She prepared a dance medley of 4th generation girl group songs for her appearance on Knowing Bros.
She hadn’t danced publicly since her stint as an idol ended in 2019. Nevertheless, she still slayed! She danced to BLACKPINK‘s “Shut Down” first.
She nailed all the moves!
She followed up with NewJeans‘ “Hype Boy”, a must-have for the 4th generation.
Nayoung made it look so easy.
With her long legs, she flew across the classroom.
She ended off with IVE‘s “After Like”.
Everyone was duly impressed with her skills.
Looks like she still has it, after all those years. Make sure to check out the full performance below.
While Nayoung won’t be standing on the stage any time soon, fans can support her new drama, 4 Minutes 44 Seconds, which will be launched in 2023. It also stars SHINee‘s Onew, GFRIEND‘s Sowon, Lovelyz‘s Yoo Jiae and Infinite‘s Sungyeol.
