Vernon expressed what it was like discovering Charli XCX’s music and what he likes about it.

It was a whole new world for me, really. I feel vulnerability, but at the same time, invincibility in her music. There’s something really beautiful about it.

For the “Beg For You” project, Vernon reached out to Bumzu, who has been integral in helping make SEVENTEEN’s music. The pair eventually settled on a melody that can be attributed to the folk song used in the Korean version of the children’s game “Red Light, Green Light,” which gained global popularity after being featured in Netflix’s Squid Game. 

Bumzu shared what he thinks of Vernon as an artist and as a person.

I’d describe him as a person who ‘does a lot of research about himself.’ If he hears me saying this, he’ll probably cover his mouth and laugh in embarrassment, but Vernon is a guy full of deep thoughts about his life … Especially when it comes to creating, he has his own unique and definite color.

Charli XCX tweeted Vernon her thanks for his participation on the song, and Vernon responded thanking her as well.

When talking about getting to work on the song, Vernon thanked Charli XCX for considering him.

I’m still having a hard time grasping this reality. I just really want to say thank you to Charli for acknowledging my existence. It’s truly an honor to be a part of her music.

— Vernon
