Lia Kim is a legend in the K-Pop industry, responsible for the dance training of idols from YG Entertainment, SM Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment.
Recently, she was asked by Jeong Hyeong Don on an episode of Dr. Oh’s Golden Clinic if she had a student who she thought could beat her in terms of dance talent. Before answering, Lia gave a disclaimer saying that all the people she trained danced well, but if she had to choose, she’d single out TWICE‘s Momo as the one who could surpass her.

Lia was also responsible for the choreographies of hit songs like TWICE’s “TT,” MAMAMOO’s “HIP,” and Sunmi‘s “Gashina.” She’s had an incredible career so far, making her praise even more awesome.
This wasn’t the first time Momo’s dance skills were acknowledged. Over the years, many other idols and choreographers have praised her!

Momo and her fellow TWICE members Chaeyoung and Tzuyu also recently collaborated with Kiel Tutin, who was responsible for BLACKPINK‘s “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” dance and was the supervising choreographer for Jennifer Lopez‘s 2019 It’s My Party worldwide concert tour.
He had nothing but praise for TWICE, saying, “The TWICE girls are like, probably like, one of the cleanest groups in the industry,” in an interview with fellow dancer Claydohboon.
