ATEEZ recently gained attention during their “Fireworks” promotion for their unique ending fairies. In particular, many noticed the unconventional ending from Jongho who effortlessly broke an apple in half at the end of their performance on SBS‘s Inkigayo.
March 14 was White Day in Korea and ATEEZ wanted to do something special for their fans, ATINY. With the help of the producer, Jongho decided to use an apple as a prop to surprise viewers at the end of their performance.
One of the big questions from fans was how Jongho made the apple appear! Jongho explained that it was tricky at first because of his clothes and high-energy choreography, there was nowhere suitable to keep the apple during the performance.
At first, the idea seemed difficult to execute and, at one point, they gave up on the idea. Luckily, on the second rehearsal on the performance day, they came up with the idea.
There was a choreography with a jump in it and when I jumped in accordance with that move, I naturally ended up being able to receive the apple during it.

In the end, everything worked out perfectly and both the ATEEZ members and fans went crazy over the ending fairy! Many viewers. who didn’t know who Jongho was, went onto social media to ask about the identity of this mysterious “apple splitter.”
