MYNAME’s Seyong bares his abs for ‘L’Officiel Hommes’

MYNAME‘s Seyong is the next up in ‘L’Officiel Hommes‘s sexy batch of male idol features, and Seyong comes packing the punch as a stylized recreation of Chow Yun Fat‘s character in ‘A Better Tomorrow‘.

Completely shedding his image of the sweet boy-next-door, Seyong has bared his toned abs in his retro recreation of the popular movie’s leading character. The cut alone shows how much charisma he’s able to give off even with his eyes hidden behind shades, and does well in amplifying the anticipation of fans for the group’s upcoming comeback.

MYNAME is currently focusing on their Japanese activities, and is scheduled to return to Korea in September to prepare for their next comeback.

[bnt 화보] 에이프린스 시윤 “귀여움을 맡고 있어요”



[배진희 기자] 에이프린스가 화보 촬영을 통해 댄디한 매력을 뽐냈다.

에이프린스는 아직 데뷔를 앞둔 신인 남성 아이돌그룹이다. 공식적인 활동 없이도 각종 SNS(social network service)에서의 반응이 뜨겁다. 페이스북 페이지의 80%이상을 해외 팬이 차지할 정도로 국내뿐만 아니라 국외 반응도 심상치 않다.

준비된 한류 아이돌 에이프린스는 리더인 성원과 태혁, 민혁, 승준, 시윤으로 구성됐다.  그들은 bnt뉴스와 함께한 화보 촬영을 통해 댄디한 매력을 보여줬다. 첫인상은 영국 보이밴드 ‘원 디렉션(one direction)’의 느낌을 자아냈다. 소년 같은 친근함이 있지만 내면에서 남자의 매력이 물씬 풍기는 모습이다.

시윤은 보타이와 짧은 기장의 바지를 매치해 막내의 풋풋한 매력을 물씬 풍겼다. 귀여우면서도 개성있는 포즈를 선보여 촬영장 분위기 메이커 역할도 톡톡히 했다.

꿈 을 이루기 위해 이룬 일보다 앞으로 해야 할 일이 많은 에이프린스다. 함께 진행된 인터뷰에서 그들은 다른 아이돌과 사뭇 다른 책임감을 보여줬다. 데뷔 전부터 ‘전면 오픈’과 ‘소통’을 중심으로 활동하는 점 때문. 데뷔 전과는 또 다른 모습을 팬들에게 선사한다는 각오다.

에이프린스는 “다양한 모습을 보여주고 싶다”며 앞으로 “보여준 것보다 보여줄 것이 더 많다”고 말한다. 대중이 요구하는 무한대의 매력을 채워줄 수 있다는 자신감을 전했다. (의상협찬: 아보키)

승준은 네이비 셔츠와 화이트 팬츠로 댄디한 분위기를 한 껏 자아냈다. 원 노트로 가볍게 맨 넥타이는 신사보다 말쑥한 소년의 느낌을 보여준다. 뿔테 안경을 통해 자칫 평범할 수 있는 코디에 포인트를 줬다.

Kikwang began, “I have not been getting enough sleep, so my voice cracks when I hit the high notes,” while Yoseob added, “I want to grow taller,” and Yong Junhyung remarked, “I run out of breath really easily these days.

Member Jang Hyun Seung who admitted he ate a lot of meat these days said, “I eat beef twice a day, and I’m afraid my personality will become really vicious,” and maknae Son Dongwoon hilariously confessed, “It’s so cold here right now, I don’t know what to do with myself.

Leader Doojoon displayed his leadership as he shared, “I want B2ST to become even more successful, and I am thinking of how we can accomplish that.

Despite their concerns, the boys seized the ‘Champion Song’ position and proved that they are currently one of the hottest idol groups in K-Pop.
