Jimin’s Big Hit Labels‘ junior, ENHYPEN‘s Ni-ki, is just fifteen years old, but he’s already proving to be a world-class dancer. His dance cover of “Lie”, Jimin’s solo song from BTS’s WINGS album, gave fans goosebumps.

“This is my first time making a dance cover of Jimin’s song,” Ni-ki said in a new behind the scenes video. “So I was kind of nervous.”

At the time “Lie” was released, Ni-ki was ten years old. At a young age, he tried learning parts of the dance.

Actually, I’ve known the song “Lie” for a long time and I tried bits of the choreography when I was young, but I forgot it completely and had to learn from scratch.

“It was really hard, to be honest,” Ni-ki went on. “Also, I practiced for about three days. I think it was a good experience. If I get a chance to do a dance cover next time, please look forward to that as well.”
