In 2022, Pengsoo’s celebrity adventures are still going strong.

Here are four artists who Pengsoo has collaborated with this year.


On January 17, Pengsoo uploaded an Instagram picture alongside four of the ENHYPEN members, Sunoo, Jungwon, Sunghoon, and Niki.

Not only did Pengsoo introduce themselves as if they were in the group, but they also added the caption “ENHYPEN.G”, adding an extra G to solidify their place as a member.

Sunoo, Jungwon, Sunghoon, and Niki then gave Pengsoo a tour of the HYBE company building for a YouTube video…

Pengsoo shared lots of laughs with ENHYPEN during their time together.

On March, rookie girl group NMIXX met with Pengsoo to ask for some advice.

As they only debuted in February 2022, the seven-member girl group wanted tips for how to stand out in an introduction.

Pengsoo came up with the idea of filming a video where NMIXX shouts their names to the sound of their song “TANK”.

Pengsoo posted NMIXX’s introduction reel to Instagram, complete with animated graphics and quirky editing.

Additionally, Pengsoo took center stage as they danced with NMIXX to their song “O.O”.

Pengsoo’s dance moves were so on point that Kyujin even offered to let them join the group!

4. PSY

While the two might not have met in person, PSY and Pengsoo recently had an exciting online exchange.

It all started on May 15, when Pengsoo wowed viewers as they danced to PSY and BTS Suga‘s song “That That”.

Two days later on May 17, PSY uploaded a mysterious split image of himself edited next to Pengsoo, with the caption, “Pengsoo’s identity caught, identity was PSY”.

Whether or not the Pengsoo dancing in the video was secretly PSY, the sudden communication perhaps means that the two are planning a future collaboration.

Regardless, with 417,000+ Instagram views, fans are loving Pengsoo’s dance cover and hope that Suga will also get to share his reaction to the video.

As 2022 is nowhere close to being over, we look forward to see who Pengsoo will meet up with next!
