Who else slayed the “New Thing” trend?

It was the track featured on the leaders’ challenge episode of Mnet‘s hot new survival program Street Man Fighter. We Dem Boyz‘s Vata took home the coveted win thanks to his straightforward yet addictive choreography.

Two weeks since its release, several K-Pop idols have already jumped on the trend and filmed their own versions of the “New Thing” challenge. Check out some of the most memorable ones below!

1. NCT Dream’s Jisung

First up, NCT Dream’s Jisung is gaining widespread popularity for his cover of the dance. He was complimented on having “extremely clean” dancing that was on the level of professionals.

Fellow member Mark also dropped his cover of “New Thing,” reminding fans that he’s an all-rounder who can sing, rap, and dance.

3. TXT’s Yeonjun

There’s a reason why Yeonjun from TXT was considered the ace trainee of BIG HIT Entertainment. He perfectly copied Vata’s dance while adding his personal style to the overall performance.

7. Fromis_9’s Hayoung and Seoyeon

Hayoung and Seoyeon from fromis_9 had a unique opening choreography where the former was spun around by the latter’s hands similar to a top. They both added a natural swag to their movements that was a great contrast to what is seen in their usual title track performances.

SEVENTEEN’s Hoshi proved yet again why he’s called one of the most gifted dancers in K-Pop. He was confident in his skills as well, even putting the original version on a screen behind him despite running the risk of being directly compared to the professional dancers.

It wasn’t just him who took up the challenge—Woozi was also spotted dancing to it alongside Hoshi during their solo concert.

8. NCT 127’s Taeyong

Taeyong’s challenge was positively received by fans who praised his cool dancing. It gained over 900,000 likes in less than 24 hours.


NMIXX’s Jinni, Kyujin, and Haewon did the “New Thing” challenge with Vata. The girls did a great job on the cover, managing to not be outshined by the creator himself.

10. NCT

In fact, We Dem Boyz—Vata’s dance crew—danced with another K-Pop group as well: NCT 127.  Needless to say, Mark, Jungwoo, Taeyong, and the dancers all slayed.
