Weverse Magazine was recently able to sit down and chat with ENHYPEN‘s Jungwon during his photoshoot.
Jungwon was asked several types of questions, from his feeling about debuting, being a leader, and more. One question the magazine made sure to ask Jungwon was how he felt about Jungkook’s comment about him:
In the last episode of “I-LAND,” your role model Jung Kook said you were memorable because you were really good. The DEBUT SHOW featured “Given-Taken,” “Let Me In (20 CUBE),” “10 Months,” and “Flicker,” which all have completely different moods. You must have worked hard to put on the best performance for each concept.
Some people are born with expressive faces, but that’s not the case for me. So I practiced making pre-planned expressions for each part. I believe that idols should be good at everything. So I think the point is to be well-rounded and do everything well. Jung Kook became my role model because he’s good at everything. He’s very laid back on stage. So I take inspiration from his relaxed expressions and strong vibes – “Boy with Luv” for relaxed expressions, and “ON,” as well as the solo performance of “My Time” from the recent concert for strong vibes.
As a trainee of Big Hit Entertainment, a fan of BTS, and an admirer of Jungkook, the interviewer commented that “ON” appeared to be a song Jungwon would like to cover:
I can tell that “ON” is the kind of performance you want to do.
I’d like to try really difficult performances like that. I was actually hoping to do that for the final test of “I-LAND.” That’s the kind of performance I wanted. But I also liked our final performance.
Fans believe Jungwon’s admiration of Jungkook has driven him well and that he has proven himself as a great artist. Many are excited to see the amazing things ENHYPEN will come out with!
