Congratulations on the release of 'All I Want for Christmas is You'! 

How does it feel to be able to remake such an iconic Christmas song? 

TAEHWAN: It was such an honor to be able to remake such a hit song. 

What was it like working as a unit? 

GON: Being the first time working with just the two of us, it was pretty interesting, but it was a good experience to learn that our vocal combinations were pretty good.

Is there a special message you would like to convey to your fans regarding this Christmas song? 

TAEHWAN: Hope this song is like a Christmas present that you can spend with VANNER.

Were there any challenges in remaking such a well-known song, and how did you overcome them?

GON: The original song is such an emotional song that it was hard to express it in our own way, but we tried our best to portray our own style and make it as clean as possible. 

Do you have any personal memories or experiences associated with the original song that influenced your approach to the remake?

TAEHWAN: We had an experience of singing this song in Japan before our debut. So it meant more special remaking this song. 

Do you remember the first time you saw snow?

TAEHWAN: I remember being really excited when I was young because the snow piled up to my knee.

GON: I remember seeing the snow when I was 7 going to kindergarten holding my mom’s hand. 

Do you remember how you felt when you discovered the truth about Santa? How old were you?

TAEHWAN: I believe that Santa still exists. 

GON: I was 9, it was so sad but I took the reality. 

Is there a memorable gift that you received from someone?

TAEHWAN: VVS itself is a present to me.

GON: I feel that ‘chance’ is a great gift given by our fans, making us able to go on stage again. 

What are your goals for 2024? 

TAEHWAN & GON: We hope to make more memories with VVS!

We look forward to hearing about VANNER's next projects for 2024!
