ATEEZ’s Yeosang Names NCT’s Taeyong As His Role Model — And This Isn’t The First Time

Yeosang is a longtime fan of Taeyong!

During a recent video call fansign event, an ATINY tried asking Yeosang if he has any thoughts about becoming a model. However, Yeosang misheard and thought she was asking about his role model!

ATINY: Have you ever wanted to do modeling?

Yeosang: Model?

ATINY: Yeah, model, like poses and stuff!

Yeosang: Oh, model! My model is — K-Pop artist? I like Taeyong! […] I like his dance […] so I like him.

Yeosang previously named Taeyong as one of his role models back in 2018 during a livestream!

Personally, a senior artist I respect is BTS’s V and also NCT’s Taeyong. For Taeyong, [I admire] his dance lines and angles and he dances all types of dance so well so I think I have a lot to learn from him as well.

— Yeosang


His admiration isn’t one-sided, however; Taeyong himself has said he listens to ATEEZ before, too!

During a collaboration video with YouTuber GoToe, Taeyong, TaeilJungwoo, and Haechan had to guess K-Pop songs through seeing silhouetted choreography. When ATEEZ’s “Treasure” came up, they didn’t get the answer, but Taeyong said he likes their music!

Taeyong: I really like their [ATEEZ] songs.

GoToe: Like “Say My Name…”

Taeyong: That’s right. Choreo is so nice.

ATINY and NCTzens are loving this wholesome moment! Hopefully, the two incredibly talented and visually stunning idols are able to work together closely in the future.
