“Hype Boy” is to the K-Pop industry what Stan Lee was to the MCU.
Since its debut in July, NewJeans seems to have taken over South Korea with its fresh sound and addictive concept. All four songs on their debut EP have managed to garner huge popularity, even among celebrities. Thanks to that, NewJeans has often taken over certain events, even without being there.
Here are 5 times other celebrities enjoyed the rookie group’s songs at their own events:
1.Kang Tae Oh
the Lawyer extraordinaire Woo lead won the hearts of many with his portrayal of Lee Jun Ho as well as his charming off-screen personality. During a fan event in August, the actor wowed fans with his moves to NewJeans’ “Hype Boy.” He Solo watched the dance twice and then hit all the key points of the choreography like a pro!

Although fans were excited to see her support the new girl group, no one expected her to actually perform their song during her own fan event in October. Dressed in a black satin shirt and baggy pants, Kim Go Eun’s images were already glowing on stage. But when she stepped out with her dancers to “Hype Boy,” people were stunned beyond recovery by her movements and her stage presence. In fact, she was having so much fun during the performance that many felt she was the perfect fit for an idol.

3.SF9 and ONF
Last month a clip from SF9’s Inseongand ONF e-tion Y J-USA went viral on the internet where they were seen dancing to NewJeans’ “Hype Boy”. Although many idols had joined the “Hype Boy” dance challenge at that time, what made this clip special was that the three idols performed it in their military outfits at the Gyeryong Military Cultural Expo 2022! Of all the places NewJeans could make an unexpected “appearance”, this has to be one of the wildest.
When #hard power & #soft power to line up.

When it comes to killer moves, hardly anyone can top Sunmi. Now, when you combine her charisma with the NewJeans discography, it’s an explosion waiting to happen. And that’s exactly how Sunmi brought down fans of hers during her Halloween party last month. The diva not only kept up with “Hype Boy,” but she also blessed the world with her dance version of “Attention.”
