The members of ATEEZ sat down for an interview with Young Hollywood during the American leg of their tour, The Fellowship: Beginning of the End, and revealed several tidbits about themselves, such the items they can’t live without—and who takes the most selfies.
When they were asked who the member is that takes the most selfies, ATEEZ put it up to a vote. On the count of three they each pointed at the person they thought was guilty, and it was quickly evident that that person was Hongjoong.
Hongjoong did not hesitate too much to admit that it was true. In fact, he readily explained himself, saying that the reason why he takes so many selfies is because he loves his red hair! And if that’s not an understandable reason, then we don’t know what it is, as Hongjoong’s red hair was a truly memorable look. Unfortunately, red hair tends to lose its color very fast, so Hongjoong felt compelled to take as many selfies as possible.
Yeah, I think these days I really take… Yeah, because of my hair too! Because I love my red hair. But red hair turns pink very fast, so I took many photos in red hair.
Hongjoong’s red hair era was absolutely iconic, whether in stage looks…
…in gym clothes…
…or in Hongjoong’s day to day (fashion king) looks.
So, naturally, he cannot be blamed for taking so many selfies, especially since he had a limited time to take good pictures due to the rapid color loss. But Wooyoung had one more thing to expose Hongjoong for, and that is that Hongjoong tends to take seemingly hundreds of selfies at a time. He hilariously imitated Hongjoong taking selfies on burst mode, and, laughing, Hongjoong admitted that it’s because he doesn’t pay attention to the angle of the pictures.
It’s because I don’t care about angles. I just take pictures from every angle.
Regardless of whether Hongjoong focuses on the quality of his selfies or not, the pictures always come out great. Plus, no one will ever begrudge him his legendary red-haired selfies!
