Some idols have changed their careers from being athletes to idols. They have shown strong stamina and great dance moves on stage because of their background. Furthermore, their physique has been developed because of their training, which explains why they look good physically.
Here are 5 ex-athlete idols who have a great physique!
1. X1’s Seungyoun
X1‘s Seungyeon used to be a soccer player! He even trained in Brazil when he was a sixth-grader to enhance his skills. He was part of “S.C. Corinthians Paulista,” a prestigious soccer club in Brazil.
Because of Seungyeon’s background in Brazil, he was recognized by a Brazillan news outlet who reported his debut with X1. Seungyeon played as a striker for two years.
2. SEVENTEEN’s Hoshi
SEVENTEEN‘s Hoshi‘s dancing capabilities and talent cannot be denied, and his background as a taekwondo player helped in enhancing his sharp dance moves! Hoshi has been playing taekwondo since he was younger and has acquired a 4th degree black belt.
He was so good at taekwondo that he was casted because of it. However, he decided to quit playing the sport because he doesn’t want to cut his hair short the way most athletes do!
This also explains why Hoshi is capable of kicking really high in the group’s choreography for “Clap.”
