Ciera Reeves


EVNNE, a seven-member boy group under the management of Jellyfish Entertainment, marked their debut on September 19th, 2023, with an electrifying entrance into the K-pop scene. Comprised of exceptionally talented individuals, the group consists of KEITA, PARK HANBIN, LEE JEONGHYEON, YOO SEUNGEON, JI YUNSEO, MUN JUNGHYUN, and PARK JIHOO, each bringing their unique flair and charisma to the stage.

Their debut was just the beginning of an exciting journey that would see them rise to prominence. Despite facing numerous challenges along the way, the EVNNE members remained resilient and determined, their unwavering dedication propelling them forward.

In a testament to their growth and evolution, EVNNE made their eagerly awaited comeback with their second mini album, "Un: SEEN" on January 22. This album served as a platform for the members to share their untold stories, offering fans a glimpse into the trials and triumphs that shaped their path to success. Despite encountering obstacles and setbacks, EVNNE persevered, emerging stronger and more determined than ever before.

Central to the theme of "Un: SEEN" is the title track, 'UGLY,' a bold anthem that challenges conventional notions of beauty and self-acceptance. Through poignant lyrics and powerful performances, EVNNE encourages listeners to embrace their flaws and imperfections, celebrating the full spectrum of human experience without reservation or self-doubt.

KW: Who suits the powerful concept the best?

JI YUNSEO: I believe that HANBIN and JIHOO excel in pulling off the powerful concept of the title track, "UGLY," in this album. Given that the title track places a significant emphasis on performance, JIHOO's excellent dance skills complement the overall theme, while HANBIN's expressive facial expressions adds onto the quality of the performance.

PARK HANBIN: I believe that the powerful concept aligns well with KEITA. Given that our songs are rap-heavy, KEITA excels in keeping a great balance and the intense rap verses resonate perfectly with his style.

LEE JEONGHYEON: Considering our group's versatility in handling various concepts, I believe all members adapt well to the given concept. However, if I were to select one member, I would choose MUN JUNGHYUN. Observing him during our practice sessions, I find that his new short hairstyle and overall ambiance perfectly match the powerful and intense concept of the album. Additionally, his intense vocals after the bridge of the song is another reason why I choose MUN JUNGHYUN for this concept.

KW: What was the most challenging part of the "UGLY" choreography?

PARK JIHOO: The choreography for the chorus of the song was the most difficult. There is a part where we have to keep our balance which is quite hard so I recall having a challenging time trying to perfect it.

PARK HANBIN: The choreography for the lyric "Big shot" demanded us to stand on one foot for some time, making it quite challenging to maintain our balance during that segment.
