VIXX’s N Received Offers From SM, YG and JYP in the Past

A lot of spotlight is being put on VIXX’s leader N recently after a video of him taken in the past at a dance festival went viral.

On February 7, an online community forum posted couple screen captures from the video and it caught the attention of many online users.

The video was taken four years ago at “2009 Korea’s Youth Dance Festival” and he managed to win the grand prize despite many talented participants. It’s been revealed that he created his choreography, proving his talent encompasses both creation and execution of dance.

He was already well known among dancers as a “natural dance machine” before his debut and was already comfortable with various dance genres. It’s been revealed that he has received offers from the three biggest entertainment agencies in Korea- SM, YG and JYP.

Meanwhile, VIXX is currently promoting their latest title track “On and On“ from their third single album.



Soompi + RealVIXX

Jellyfish posted the predebut vid on Vixx's youtube channel, I guess the screencaps started getting posted after that.Vixx wouldn't be the same without their precious leader, so I'm glad he went for a smaller company.

tbh, i'm glad the he went to Jellyfish because with current situations of those 3 companies, it would be unlikely that he would have debuted by now.

If he had joined SM and debuted in Exo, he’d probably be a little more popular, but we would still be waiting for a comeback lol. The latest guy group JYP debuted is JJ Project and that's all. However, I did see N's JYP audition clip. I wonder if that was before or after this video.

As for YG, there hasn’t been a male group created by YG to debut since Big Bang. Thomas, an ex-trainee revealed that the project for another YG male group had been cancelled, so he left YG. He trained at Jellyfish for a little while, but left there after not being selected for Vixx...

mte None of the Big three would have done him justice at this point. He fits with Jellyfish and Vixx
scarletapples 9th-Feb-2013 04:43 am (UTC)
I already saw the video when it was first posted on the channel, but wow, I never knew about the offers from the Big 3!

I'm very glad he's in VIXX though. I couldn't imagine the group without him, really
lysblack 9th-Feb-2013 04:48 am (UTC)
now the real question is; was he supposed to be a member of snsd?
scarletapples 9th-Feb-2013 04:50 am (UTC)
i think i just died at this lmfaooo
stutterflies 9th-Feb-2013 04:50 am (UTC)
Wow I was expecting a conventional hip-hip routine, but I was pleasantly surprised. N's become one of my favorite idols in the industry right now. I'm kind of blown away by his talent and his fierce stage persona, yet super charmed by how quickly he can switch off into his bubbly personality. I'm also really glad that he's a part of VIXX because he seems to be a great leader (as I've inferred from MyDOL) and is the only one that's ballsy enough to consistently bother Leo.
crypticbluerose 9th-Feb-2013 04:54 am (UTC)
lol, i know right?
scubajr 9th-Feb-2013 05:20 am (UTC)
Was I the only one that thought it was a girl in the video at first?
crypticbluerose 9th-Feb-2013 05:24 am (UTC)
When I first saw it, for a second I thought he had a long ponytail and I almost choked. rofl
a_perfect_shade 9th-Feb-2013 05:22 am (UTC)
well, i can see why SM wanted him. they do love their flaily dancing boys.
scarletfbl 9th-Feb-2013 07:31 am (UTC)
lol, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought he was flailing. I was really like um...gworl, sit down.
frootums 9th-Feb-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
Jellyfish are so fab, I really love the concentration they're putting on these guys, I was fearing they would fade out of existence due to all the nugus that come on last year but they seem to be staying strong. Much appreciation for all the translating they do for VIXX vids too.
epona 9th-Feb-2013 05:30 am (UTC)
and you ended up in vixx #oop
epona 9th-Feb-2013 05:31 am (UTC)
lmao i just watched the video and it was terrible nice media play guys
unicornios 9th-Feb-2013 06:09 am (UTC)
OOoooooo I felt that!!
spread 9th-Feb-2013 06:19 am (UTC)
Well N is prection, so it's to be expected...
ms_rancha 9th-Feb-2013 07:35 am (UTC)
yg? really?
21banged 9th-Feb-2013 08:11 am (UTC)
mte but they did get Minzy for her dancing, and I bet they had never dreamed that she would be such a good singer.
21banged 9th-Feb-2013 08:11 am (UTC)
N is precious, all that needs to be said tbh. He really fits with VIXX anyway, I have no idea where they would be without him - he's like the glue that holds them together / oh so cheesy
edanz_castle 9th-Feb-2013 11:51 pm (UTC)
I never realized he was like the glue until I saw Diary. I thought he was just a cute face MC but really...he leads his group well and like you said, he really fits in VIXX. I can't see him anywhere else.
swhyeon1991 9th-Feb-2013 09:37 am (UTC)
Ngl that video reminds me of JYP's Sniff Sniff Swan dance.
(Where's that gif when you need it?)
21banged 10th-Feb-2013 02:05 am (UTC)
O M G / goes back and watches
gray_fairy 9th-Feb-2013 11:39 am (UTC)
He's so precious, sweet, talented and charismatic.
shintotchi 9th-Feb-2013 01:00 pm (UTC)
Too bad he didn't make it into AA. They would've been beautiful together. T_T

That aside, the contemporary dance was cool, and that he did it blindfolded is awesome. Too bad that has no effect of VIXX's crap songs. :X
defiasco 9th-Feb-2013 01:10 pm (UTC)
kinda ot but are there any other idols who are trained in traditional dance or ballet or sth? someone who dances like hankyung.
kanbinayume 9th-Feb-2013 04:05 pm (UTC)
Exo's Kai has a background in classical ballet and jazz
asnindie 9th-Feb-2013 03:50 pm (UTC)
That was amusing, esp during the end when he was on the floor doing god knows what. Those are the same dance moves I do when drunk. So A+ N.

im srry i lo v N bb but i laughed the whole foking time
virgo288 9th-Feb-2013 11:11 pm (UTC)
I don't follow Vixx so can someone enlighten me, was he formally trained in any kind of dance before?
missnothings 9th-Feb-2013 11:54 pm (UTC)
Yes, he was. I'm not sure where or what exactly he was trained in, but he was. He's the main dancer for Vixx.
ponyboy 9th-Feb-2013 11:36 pm (UTC)
...Anyone know why they set the MV for "On and On" to private? Like wtf where did it go
missnothings 9th-Feb-2013 11:55 pm (UTC)
No idea. Which is sad. Cause I love that MV.
weerainbow 10th-Feb-2013 12:54 am (UTC)
Wow I was not expecting that. I've never paid enough attention to VIXX to know him for his dancing really but I was curious so I watched it. To me it was almost like he wasn't dancing as such but being a physical representation of the music...if that makes any sense.
falling_empress 10th-Feb-2013 01:14 am (UTC)
ahhh he's really cool! the more i learn about vixx just in general the more i like them.
engraved_16 10th-Feb-2013 01:38 pm (UTC)
Look at him being all fierce and shit, wacking on stage~ my bb. i love N and im glad to see him in VIXX. Because like what some of the comments have already pointed out, if he really did join one of the big three they probably wouldn't know what to do with him or he would have trained for a seriously long time, so im happy seeing him in VIXX!

so different from the passe stuff, good for him.

this kind of dance style always makes me unable to tell if he's trippin or I am. either way it's ossum.
