Shooting a performance is undoubtedly difficult and requires a professional team. In order to capture the “legendary” on-stage moments of idols, to ensure that both solo and group shots look perfect, there has to be lots of cameras.

In particular, the cameraman responsible for recording close-ups carries the toughest task. They have to hold and control a heavy camera, while also moving along with the idols’ dance moves throughout the performance.

When behind-the-scenes moments were revealed, music shows cameramen gain fans’ admiration with how they move and bounce flexibly and professionally on stage like back-up dancers. Netizens are in awe of their dedication to the job.

However, sometimes the cameramen can be “overly” dedicated, leading to a funny situation. After Red Velvet finished performing “Queendom” on Inkigayo, the members started posing for their ending fairy moments.
