Talking of “Loopy” and his newest EP Facade, Wonho tells me that he labored with a wholly completely different staff of hairstylists and make-up artists that he thought he “might actually vibe and click on with.” Provided that among the lyrics he cowrote for “Loopy” embody “Gettin’ with the vibe, I get folks dancing on the beat,” this dynamic appears to take a look at. He was beforehand acquainted with these folks, “who’re very proficient and hardworking,” he notes, “so it is creating an excellent synergy and I am having fun with the [glam] course of.” In different phrases, Wonho is a person who is aware of what he needs by way of styling, which he confirms after I ask what kind of position he takes in the case of brainstorming and growing comeback ideas. “In cost” is the phrase his translator (and, I assume, Wonho) makes use of.
Since embarking on his solo journey, his model has taken a flip in the direction of the informal and timeless realm. “My model has turn out to be considerably neater — eco-friendly [if you will],” he contemplates. (For instance, he factors out that he wears footwear made out of recycled supplies.) “I feel, if the styling or the outfits are too luxurious, glamorous, or flashy, it hurts the setting — particularly since they get thrown away so usually.” And, in opposition to the fixed cycle of change we sometimes see from Ok-pop idol teams (nothing mistaken with this strategy, both), Wonho factors out that “it is arduous to make a long-lasting impression on folks if the model or the idea adjustments an excessive amount of.” Thus, he sticks with clothes that may be seen as “primary” and pairs effectively with any event.
Even with the joyful carnival/amusement park-inspired theme he had in thoughts for Facade, Wonho stored his model easy. All through the “Loopy” music video you may spot distressed streetwear, basic denim and leather-based jackets, and outfits that showcase his, effectively, property. “I needed to inform my followers to get pleasure from each second proper now [as if you’re at a carnival soaking it all in], but additionally to stay up for what’s forward,” Wonho divulges, noting that he stored this sentiment in thoughts whereas songwriting.
