As you know already, K-Pop idols should be omnipotent idols who can deal with almost everything. Dancing, singing, acting, promoting themselves, producing, and doing these things simultaneously! Also, they are very skilled to find the camera shooting themselves and to look at it. Because they get used to catch camera’s angle and look attractive in front of it. This skill shines well even in other entertaining places than stages. K-Pop idols are good at posing professionally when they are taken pictures, giving finger hearts, or just hearts. Am I going to say actors are bad? Definitely No. You can find what I mean below, actors and actress who are not familiar with those things are cute enough to blow your mind too. Idols and Actors are having each proficient ability for them. Now is the time to see how skilled idols are!
