While PATTERN was preparing for its debut and overseas promotions, we caught up with the group for an interview. 

Hi PATTERN! What does your name mean?

It has the meaning of completing one pattern with five different charms.

All of the members have been previously active in groups before. They are back to take on the journey as PATTERN. How does it feel to debut?

We, who have pursued our dream of becoming singers, are so happy beyond words that we have been given a great opportunity to unite once again after going through many adversities and hardships.


Can you tell us about your song 'Malibu'?

Our song 'MALIBU' has the concept and atmosphere of not being able to escape from the temptation of the other person and being addicted to it in an instant.



Who is the funniest these days?

Haemin is so witty and funny.

If you chose a member as your stylist for the week, who would it be?

I'm Kyo. I have a talent for dressing well by making good use of my strengths and feelings.



You turn your music player on and shuffle, what is the first song that plays?

JJ: I want to show a performance with a medley of famous songs from TikTok Challenges.
