K-Pop Backup Dancer And “Single’s Inferno” Star Cha Hyun Seung Gets Mistaken For Jay Park

They both recently did TikToks with ENHYPEN.

Cha Hyun Seung is a famous face in K-Pop even though he is not an idol himself.

He is most often recognized as the viral backup dancer for Sunmi, although he has been a backup dancer for nearly every K-Pop act.

And recently, he appeared as a contestant on Netflix‘s hit dating reality show Single’s Inferno.

Sunmi and BTOB‘s Changsub are actually the ones who convinced him to go on the show!

I also want to thank Sunmi and Changsub for convincing me to go on the show even though I didn’t want to. They told me that I might meet the right person on the program.

Yet, not everyone recognizes him…

Recently, ENHYPEN posted a video on TikTok featuring Cha Hyun Seung doing the “ParadoXXX Invasion” choreography. They frequently have guests appear on their account, with them participating in their TikTok dance challenges.

Everyone in the comment section, except for a few people wondering if it was “the guy from Single’s Inferno,” thought it was Jay Park at first!
