Unlike many of his members in NCT, Doyoung does not often go shirtless, either for photoshoots or performances. In fact, he is perhaps known for being one of the more conservative members—though that may have changed now with the reveal of new images from his GQ Korea pictorial in collaboration with Alexander McQueen.
Earlier this month, NCTzens were treated to an early glimpse of the pictorial, leaving them absolutely shook.

…but no one could have imagined what was to come. Over the years, Doyoung has come tantalizingly close to losing his shirt…

…wearing a number of deep cut shirts and blazers that did not leave much to the imagination. Even this new pictorial had plenty of great looks that seemed to tease.
But it was Doyoung who finally revealed it all by posting pictures of the behind-the-scenes of the photoshoot to his Instagram. One of the pictures did not show much…
…but Doyoung absolutely did not fail to make sure fans got a good look at his ‘washboard abs.’
NCTzens were quick to point out that this is the first time Doyoung goes shirtless like this…

This is somewhat of a turning point for the ‘mom of the group,’ but it is definitely a welcome one for fans!

Congratulations to Doyoung on his impressive photoshoot. It seems like he’s made everyone proud, even the editor of GQ Korea!
GQ KOREA liked their own post about Doyoung 😆
