We usually think of K-pop idols as graceful, elegant, and put-together — so it’s especially hilarious when they run into things, drop objects, and generally can’t manage to stay on their own two feet. Some idols are especially well-known for being klutzes, to the point where their clumsiness has become an adorable part of their character that everyone accepts and loves. If you want to know which idols are infamous for being clumsy, or just want to see some hilarious slips, trips, and mishaps that will have you laughing out loud, read on!

1. SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu

Things must get hectic in a group that has as many members as SEVENTEEN does, but poor Mingyu can hardly use that as an excuse when he seems to bring on most of his fails entirely by himself.

2. TWICE’s Sana

TWICE should probably never trust Sana to hold anything.

Or to walk, swim, or climb, for that matter. Hey, she may be a hazard, but at least she’s adorable!

3. SHINee’s Onew

SHINee’s leader can be so endearingly clumsy and awkward that the fandom had to coin a term to describe it: The Onew Condition. Symptoms include causing accidental harm to himself and various inanimate objects, or just generally finding himself in awkward situations and doing random (awkward) things to alleviate them.

4. GOT7’s Mark

Considering he does so many insanely cool martial arts tricks for GOT7, how in the world is Mark so cutely clumsy when doing normal person things like walking?

5. BTS’s Jimin

BTS’s leader RM may have earned the nickname “God of Destruction,” but when it comes to general clumsiness, Jimin takes the cake. For someone who’s so graceful and precise with his dance moves, it’s pretty adorable that Jimin is such a klutz!

P.S. make sure you have your sound on for this video — did BTS write the “I Need U” intro with Jimin in mind? Is this a new fan theory?

6. EXID’s Hani

Hani is well-known for her wacky and weird personality, so it’s no surprise that she has her fair share of clumsy moments as well. Whether they’re self-inflicted…

Or not even her fault — she can’t seem to escape!


Oh, L. So suave, so handsome… so bad at staying upright.

And so sheepishly cute after his near-misses!

8. BIGBANG’s Seungri

BIGBANG’s maknae with his clumsiness is extra funny because it inevitably happens whenever he’s trying his best to be super smooth.

Although, to be fair, roller skating on stage seemed like a recipe for disaster.

And this might just be one of the best videos on the internet:

9. Apink’s Son Naeun

When it comes to staying on her feet or holding important things like trophies, Naeun is not to be trusted! But we love her for these hilarious moments nonetheless.

10. EXO’s Chanyeol

Someone please save Chanyeol from himself… or don’t, because these trips are priceless.
