If you’re heading the pool or the beach once all the lockdown commotion is over, you’ll want one of these 10 idols by your side. They’re so talented at swimming, they’d be sure to save you if you were drowning.
1. Shownu (MONSTA X)
MONSTA X’s Shownu doesn’t consider himself good at sports, but he is great at swimming. No wonder his arms are so powerful!
2. Bang Chan (Stray Kids)
Stray Kids’ Bang Chan was raised in Sydney, Australia, and his dad owned a swimming club there. As a result, Bang Chan used to swim a lot as a child. When he was just 8, he broke his school’s record for the 50m freestyle swim.
3. Felix (Stray Kids)
There’s a lot of swimming talent in Stray Kids’ Aussie line. Felix is also a great swimmer. Remarkably, he won 2nd place in his age category at the 2015 Swimming Carnival.
4. Kim Lip (LOONA)
LOONA’s Kim Lip once wished they’d bring back swimming at the Idol Star Athletics Championships. She revealed she was a good swimmer as a child.
5. Taehyun (TXT)
TXT’s Taehyun once called out Soobin’s fear of swimming in a 1 meter pool despite being 1.8 meters tall. Given that swimming is one of Taehyun’s specialties, it’s no surprise he didn’t get the leader’s fear of water.
6. Moonbin (ASTRO)
When asked what he’d be if he wasn’t a singer, ASTRO’s Moonbin told fans he’d be an athlete—probably a swimmer.
7. Cha Eunwoo (ASTRO)
Swimming is one of ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo’s specialties too. No wonder he and GUGUDAN’s Sejeong were selected to appear in a Lotte Waterpark CF.
8. Younghoon (The Boyz)
Before Younghoon joined The Boyz, he was a talented swimmer. He even won national swimming competitions in his youth.
9. Chan (VICTON)
Not only is VICTON’s Chan an amazing dancer, he can also move his body just as well in the water. When he was in elementary school, he was part of a junior swimming team.
10. Wenhan (UNIQ)
UNIQ’s Wenhan is great at a lot of sports, including basketball, bowling, and tennis. His biggest specialties, though, are swimming and diving. When he lived in his hometown of Hangzhou, China, he won the region’s junior swimming competition.
