[K-Pop Battle] Hyoyeon vs. Minzy
Yes, we went there.
It’s a highly contested topic, but we’re out to settle who the dancing queen of the K-Pop world is once and for all in this week’s K-Pop Battle.
While we understand that we’ve left out a number of notable ladies, it’s a battle, not a girl group brawl, so we’ve whittled down the list to these two representative, rump-shaking girl group members, and now it’s your turn to choose which of the two dancing divas deserves to be crowned queen.
If Girls’ Generation (SNSD)’s image is a bit Barbie doll pretty and prim, Hyoyeon brings the fierce factor to the group with her powerful dance skills.
If she’s not letting loose during one of SNSD’s dance breaks, she’s busting a move to some good ol’ hip hop as seen in her solo performance of Ciara’s Goodies below.
We knew it would only be a matter of time before Hyoyeon would be invited to compete on MBC’s Dancing With the Stars 2, and, as expected, she’s currently dancing circles around her competition.
But the show isn’t the first time she’s taken on ballroom dancing. Hyoyeon showed off some fancy footwork, salsa dancing on KBS’ Chit-chat of Beautiful Ladies
2NE1’s Minzy may be young, but she doesn’t play around when it comes to dancing. Give the girl a beat and some space, and things get a little dangerous.
We’ve watched this clip of Minzy break it down to the Black Eyed Peas’ Boom Boom Pow on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook more times than we’d like to admit, but it never gets old.
Watch Minzy slow it down during her performance of fellow YG Entertainment labelmate Taeyang’s hit song Only Look at Me.
As a bonus, below are our favorite divas partnering up in a few more memorable dance performances.

We know Hyoyeon and Minzy can break it down, but who will move on to the next round of our K-Pop Battle? You decide!
