It’s definitely giving horror film vibes!
We’ve definitely never seen J-Hope like this before, but we can’t help but fall in love with his new persona with that sharp gaze, all-black attire, and piercings!
Now, J-Hope has released the second set of concept photos for Jack In The Box, and it only continues to get creepier…
J-Hope appears to be rocking out in a garage, teasing what we can expect from his new sound. Possibly we will get a grunge rock style.
He’s not alone, though. J-Hope is accompanied by men with deformed faces…
In the rest of the photos, he appears in a completely opposite environment. Rather than a garage, he is crashing a corporate office space filled with workers.
So, we’re totally getting rebellious “fight the system” vibes, and we love it!
