ENHYPEN Reveals Which BTS Concept They Want to Try in the Future
On August 5, HYBE’s youngest boy group, HYBE, recently took part in an interview with Seventeen, where they also participated in the magazine’s “Lyric Challenge,” a game where the members would have to guess a song’s title and artist based on a single line.
One of the songs that were played was their labelmates and seniors, BTS’s song, “Boy With Luv,” which features Halsey. As soon as the members saw the lyrics on-screen, they immediately knew which song it was and even sang and danced along!
When the song was finished, ENHYPEN member, Jake, revealed that he wants to try making a song with the same kind of concept as “Boy With Luv.”
“I want to do a song with this kind of concept,” said, Jake.
Jake asked his fellow ENHYPEN members what they thought of doing a similar concept, to which Sunghoon responds by saying it might take them five years for them to be able to do the concept.
With ENHYPEN only having debuted just last year, they will surely be able to try numerous concepts in the future.
