Netizens have mixed reactions to ATEEZ Jongho‘s recent styling.
Since ATEEZ made their comeback with their new album THE WORLD EP.2: OUTLAW and title track “BOUNCY (K-HOT CHILLI PEPPERS),” we haven’t been able to get “Slow it down, make it bouncy…” out of our heads. The members have been promoting the song with TikTok dance challenges and appearances on music shows.
A clip from ATEEZ’s performance of “BOUNCY (K-HOT CHILLI PEPPERS)” on Music Bank has gone viral on TikTok with over 1 million views. It focused on Jongho and his styling compared to the rest of his members.
Some netizens commented that he was dressed more like a dad or even a pastor. They couldn’t help but find it ironic, considering he is actually the maknae.
Many ATINYs came to the stylists’ and Jongho’s defense. They reminded everyone that Jongho has said he prefers to dress in this style of clothes, and his stylists respect his wishes rather than make him uncomfortable.
Others have contrasting opinions, though. While they are glad that Jongho’s boundaries are being respected, they wish that the stylists would put forth more effort in choosing outfits that are both comfortable for him and coordinated with his fellow ATEEZ members and their concepts.
