K-Pop stars may seem like they’re living in a fantasy world of perpetual sunshine and butterflies but, in reality, they are mortals who experience just as many fails as we do. In fact, some of their “fails” will make you feel much better about your own.
1. Jennie (BLACKPINK)
Jennie is known for her sassy, rapid-fire rapping, but even this pretty rap star makes mistakes! When she fumbled her lyrics, she gave a cute little shout then carried on like a pro.
2. Jin (BTS)
Jin was minding his own business during this air hockey match, but that didn’t stop him from taking a shot to the crotch.
3. Jimin (AOA)
If there’s one picture Jimin wants erased from the internet, it’s probably this one. A camera captured her at the worst possible moment and now that moment will live on forever.
4. Ten (NCT)
Ten got the fright of his life during this ghost prank and, to make matters worse, his girlish scream was captured on video and shared all of the internet. It’s a good thing he has a sense of humour!
5. Sana (TWICE)
Every day is an accident waiting to happen for this klutzy queen.
Sana is one of the clumsiest idols in K-Pop, but her lack of coordination makes fans feel much better about their own.
6. Park Jihoon (Wanna One)
Male fans can definitely relate to this painful Park Jihoon moment. His day would have been much better if this hadn’t happened!
7. Naeun (Apink)
Like Sana, Naeun is almost too clumsy to function. One of her crowning klutzy moment was when she dropped this award while on stage.
She has also fallen down stairs…in front of the paparazzi.
8. Lee Sungjong (INFINITE)
When Lee Sungjong tried to avoid hitting his face during this ball game…
…he hit something else instead. Ouch!
9. Bora (SISTAR)
Bora had wiped out a lot over the years, but this time was particularly brutal.
10. Onew (SHINee)
If Sana is the Klutz Queen, then Onew is the king! This butterfingered idol once fumbled his mic so badly that he fell over while trying to catch it. Years later, this clip is still cracking up his fans!
IU is usually elegant and poised in high heel, but this blunder illustrated the difference between “expectation” and “reality”.
12. Jessica Jung
Everybody had made an athletic blunder in their life time…but has it happened in a baseball stadium in front of a live audience?
13. V (BTS)
One time V accidentally uploaded this selfie of himself wearing a glasses filter. Embarrassed, he immediately deleted and denied it, but fans had already saved and shared it all over the web.
14. SinB (GFRIEND)
SinB proved that crotch shots aren’t just for boys when Yuju accidentally kicked her with a rollerskate!
15. Eunjin (DIA)
Eunjin experienced an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction when her strapless bra slid right down to her stomach during a live stage in Yeonchon. Most of us probably would have died of embarrassment in her place, but Eunjin carried on like the professional she is.
CL arrived at the wedding of BIGBANG‘s Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin in style, but as she climbed the stairs to the wedding hall’s entrance she tripped over her glamorous, green coat! She laughed off the incident, and even posted this image on Instagram!
17. Irene (Red Velvet)
Irene accidentally began a performance without a mic in her hand. She sought help from her members and staff by mouthing her distress. It took her nearly 2 minutes for her to finally get a mic!
18. Mark (GOT7)
Martial arts tricking is no easy feat. Even pros like Mark wipe out sometimes! Unfortunately, when it happens it happens to be in front of thousands of people.
19. I.M (MONSTA X)
I.M was one mobbed by raccoons at the zoo. Not only did those pesky trash panda nip him…
…they also stole his script!
When he tried to get it back, they attacked him again!
20. J-Hope (BTS)
Speaking wildlife, who can forget the infamous “snakeu”? J-Hope named this close encounter as one of the worst experiences of his life. Nothing beats being forced to face your worst fears…on camera!
