Over 16 million followers on social media! ENHYPEN, a K-POP group in new generation who gets remarkable attention globally, appears in ViVi JUST IN TIME!
They improved in visual and performance even after they proved their skills in their huge project called ‘I-LAND’ and made their debut on November, 2020. Also, their name ENHYPEN related to hyphen ‘-’ has the meaning of ‘CONNECTION’ gradually started to expand, and their unlimited potential is about to fly off into the world!
They strengthen their connection as if there is telepathy.
―――First of all, can you share with us what you think is the most amazing thing about ENHYPEN?
JAKE：We all have different specialties and backgrounds, so we can express any music in high level no matter what concept it is.
SUNGHOON：I think we proved our capabilities of music in our debut album ‘BORDER : DAY ONE’. I would like to continue to surprise everyone by making special chemical reaction much more because we all have the motivation and aspiration.
JUNGWON：The name of ENHYPEN came from ‘hyphen’ meaning that seven of us ‘connect’ to each other and we ‘grow up’ together. In fact, we have glowing desire and higher our ability by inspiring and motivating each other.
JAY：On the other hand, when we are in talk shows and on social media, you can see normal young boys. How we look in our performances is completely different, so please keep your eyes on our gap!
HEESEUNG：What’s more, all of us are the main characters of ENHYPEN! Once you love us, you can’t stop it. We are the group that has extraordinary attraction.
Do you think your ‘CONNECTION’ has been stronger since 2020?
NI-KI：Yes! We have a rule that any issues that happen in a group has to be resolved in the same day by talking it out, so our teamwork and understanding to each other are getting better and better.
SUNOO：It’s important not to stress others out and to have compassion.
JUNGWON：For example, if someone looks for a phone, call his number without even telling him, or if it’s windy, gently and quietly give tissues to a member that has pollen allergy. We communicate as if we have telepathy. lol
JAKE：We have a strong bond that was made by overcoming hardship together since ‘I-LAND’, so no one can defeat our emotional CONNECTION.
SUNGHOON：Every before we perform at the stage, we make a big circle and shout ‘ena ena ena ena ena ena ENHYPEN!’ This shout really makes us become as one.
――Lastly tell us what you want to do in the future for fans that are looking forward to your activities!
JAKE：Now we are putting our best effort into the second album. We are still new so we would like to apply our experience of the first album into the next and will continue to grow to send you the best music we can make.
HEESEUNG：Our motivation which is ENGINE is your support and expectation. We prepare to improve our quality and impress you even more.
SUNGHOON：Because ‘BORDER:DAY ONE’ was our first album, everything was harder and we were not used to all the process back then. This time, we were more prepared timewise and improved mentally so we are sure that this can answer your expectations! Please look forward to it!
