K-Pop Idols Who Are Also Accomplished Instrumentalists

The majority of K-Pop idol performances usually consist of what any popular music concerts would have, choreography and singing. 

Audiences usually don’t have the chance to see their favorite idol displaying their musical capabilities through instrumental performances unless they attend a special official concert where idols sometimes play different versions of their songs with instruments live. Luckily, in this day and age, we have something called the internet, which allows us to have access to contents without having to actually physically move in order to acquire it. Videos of K-Pop idols displaying their various musical abilities can be found online and some of them are quite remarkable.
