NCT‘s Johnny has been making waves with his appearance at the 2022 Met Gala. Dressed in the sharpest of black fits, Johnny easily conquered the Met Gala, even collecting celebrities left and right throughout the evening.
Johnny has always been known for his superb sense of fashion. There is even a segment in his YouTube series, Johnny’s Communication Center, that is solely dedicated to fashion, and that is the popular segment Johnny’s Fashion Evaluation. It’s no surprise then, that one of Johnny’s first major solo schedules would end up being such an iconic event in the fashion world. He truly looks like he belongs on the Met Gala red carpet!

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Johnny discussed his outfit and how he felt about it. He was thankful that everything went really smoothly when he arrived in New York City, with the suit barely requiring any tweaks to fit him. With the suit looking perfect from the beginning, Johnny felt pretty confident in it—and it’s easy to see why!
Johnny was asked which song he felt best fit his black satin ensemble at the event, and of course, his answer was on point: according to Johnny, the song that best fits his Met Gala look is NCT 127‘s “Kick It.” It’s hard to disagree. His Met Gala look definitely fits the song’s confident vibes, as does the sleek black fit.
Our song “Kick It” would be a great song to match it to because I was feeling confident in that outfit yesterday.
But that wasn’t the only outfit Johnny had a song for. He also commented on his after-party look, which was a more loose outfit that he says showed off his casual side.
Given that Johnny loves wearing oversized clothes, the after-party look showed off a seamless balance between his personal style and a sharp, more formal tone. Therefore, the song Johnny feels best represents his after-party look is NCT 127’s “Regular.”
I think I was supposed to be a little more loose, because we were kind of on the tighter side during [the] Gala look. So we wanted to show off a little more of a free side of me. Everything was really oversized. “Regular” would be the song. Because that’s how I dress on the regular.
Classic Johnny puns aside, it’s safe to say his choice of song for the after-party look is also accurate. He really embodied the spirit of each of those songs, so it’s safe to say he did the best job representing NCT at the Met Gala! And he has certainly made many, many people proud.
