Kep1er‘s Xiaoting went viral for her incredible performance at the 2022 Idol Star Athletic Championships (ISAC), competing in the “dance sports” event.
Fans weren’t surprised that Xiaoting was one of the competitors, given the idol was previously a professional ballroom dancer, having won trophies in major competitions.
And Xiaoting’s 2022 ISAC performance was the main event of the whole competition, with many idols in awe of her incredible performance.

In a recent behind-the-scenes video of Kep1er’s time at ISAC, Xiaoting opened up about how difficult it was to prepare her performance while keeping up with her schedules for Kep1er.
Of course, it was hard, but it was also fun. It’s been a long time.
Of course, given her dancing background, the idol admitted that she was confident in her performance.
I am confident!
Even though she confessed to not going all-out in her practice, which Kep1er’s staff understandably thought was already incredible.
Earlier… I didn’t give 100%.
Xiaoting also shared that, for her, the key to success is her confidence.
I guess confidence matters.
And while Xiaoting deserved to be confident in her incredible performance, the idol revealed that she was only able to practice for about a week.
[I practiced for] one week? In one week, I got permission to go practice between our schedules. I could go practice after our schedule all the time.
Which, of course, was difficult, but Xiaoting was more focused on having fun getting to try this dance style again.
It was hard, but I’m doing dancesport in a long time. I think it’s going to be fun.
And Xiaoting revealed that her members were incredibly supportive of her.
They told me I’m pretty and I’ll win 1st place again.
Xiaoting did admit that she was nervous before her performance, but it didn’t hinder her in the slightest.
I’m not nervous at all today. But suddenly I feel nervous. Since the members did the relay race. Since then, I couldn’t sit down. I’m anxious.
