For the session K-pop superstars are wearing selected pieces from Prada.
On favorite tracks from Orange Blood:
JAKE: ORANGE BLOOD is really a “no skip” album, but if I had to choose one, I’d go with “Orange Flower (You Complete Me).”
JUNGWON: My favorite is “Orange Flower (You Complete Me).”
JAY: Personally, I like “Sweet Venom.” It’s very different from our previous lead singles and the fact that I contributed to the Korean lyrics makes it even more special.
HEESEUNG: “Sweet Venom” because I’m personally into this funk/pop genre. Also, you can listen to this song in both Korean and English, so hopefully more listeners will be able to connect to it and enjoy it.
SUNGHOON: “Sweet Venom” is my top pick because it allows us to show a different side of ourselves that ENGENEs have yet to witness.
SUNOO: I’m on board with SUNGHOON—“Sweet Venom.”
NI-KI: I choose “Sweet Venom” too. Its choreography and the song itself is very fresh, making it very exciting to perform.
On Individual styles:
JUNGWON: I usually opt for comfortable and easygoing looks, but lately, I’ve been experimenting with more formal and edgy styles as well.
HEESEUNG: I enjoy playing around with pieces that have different vibes and I pay particular attention to the quality of the fabric.
JAY: My style is quite versatile, but I’m particularly drawn to clothes with a lot of sophisticated details.
JAKE: Similar to JAY, I’m open to a wide range of styles. Recently, I’ve been working on mixing and matching different looks to define my signature style.
SUNGHOON: I prefer neat and well-defined outfits, which is why I enjoy wearing matching sets to achieve a classic aesthetic.
SUNOO: My go-to is effortless yet trendy attire, often paired with accessories like bags.
NI-KI: Street and vintage styles are my favorites and I like to blend elements from both to craft looks that are unique to me.
