The mullet is back — and if you need proof, look no further than NCT‘s own Taeil!
Taeil’s mullet, fondly referred to by fans as the “Tullet,” made its first appearance for NCT 127‘s 2016 track “Limitless.”
Since then, he’s had the hairstyle multiple times, like during NCT 127’s Neozone era in 2020!
Taeil recently appeared in the August issue of Harper’s BAZAAR in a segment all about the hairstyle. A Korean NCTzen was flipping through the pages when they saw his face!
Oh wow, I found Taeil in a magazine?!
I was skimming through this month’s Harper’s Bazaar… It caught me off guard to find such a familiar face in it LOL.
That’s definitely my boy Taeil…to show what a mullet cut is!
What a FI! (For fashion icon!)
MULLET IS BACK
Trends will always find their way back, don’t they? The mullet, also known as the ‘Kim Byung Ji cut’ and the ‘wolf cut’ to Koreans, is coming back and challenging guys to try the hairstyle. The mullet style leaves hair short in the front and long in the back, giving it an avant-garde vibe. And, since the rise of ‘genderless’ styles, the mullet has become a trendy look for both men and women.

This isn’t the first time Taeil’s mullet grabbed media attention! Back in 2020 when NCT 127 performed at the Houston Rodeo, Taeil’s mullet made it onto ABC news.
Fans all agree that Taeil absolutely rocks the mullet look!
