IVE Jang Wonyoung
Among the girl group members, she selected Jang Wonyoung and Lisa as some of the best female dancers in the K-pop scene.
Prior to giving her reasons, she explained that one of the standards of being the best dancer is not only how quickly they learn a choreographer, but how the dancer conveys the emotion of the song.
“It’s up to the artist to shine on the stage […] How well you express the choreography is different from whether you are quick or slow at learning.”
Thus, when asked about the best dancers among idols these days that she has her eyes on, she selected IVE Jang Wonyoung.
“IVE Jang Wonyoung is a friend who has excellent learning and expression. She learns the choreography really quickly, but when she’s given key points about her gestures and facial expressions, she immediately recognizes what the choreographers want. She also has great stamina.”

Along with her, Dasom also mentioned BLACKPINK Lisa, saying:
“I’ve never worked with BLACKPINK Lisa, but I think she’s a (versatile) person who can handle all genres. She’s a person who can do anything cute or lively things. She’s an all-rounder.”

Since then, Chae Dasom has taken out the names of the artists who showed talent in dancing among the idols she has been with.
She added soloist Chung Ha and conveyed:
“Chung Ha memorized the choreography within an hour after teaching her. She was good at dancing and learned it well. She also knows which angle she looks pretty in.”

Chae praised another soloist and lauded Jeon Somi’s visuals and passion for dancing.
“Somi said she wanted to take a personal lesson, so we spent time together. The more I look at Somi, the more I see that she really likes dancing.
On top of that, I really liked teaching her because she learned the dance quickly when I showed her the lesson video I did before. She is good at dancing to songs with completely different moods, too.”

Finally, the choreographer cited the powerful physical strength of the rookie girl group Kep1er reflected in their choreographies.
“Kep1er is the most powerful and strong friends right now. Overall, the team has good stamina. I’m so excited and I don’t have time to rest. Especially when they learn the choreography, they never do it half-heartedly.”
