And whereas he considers all his members to be his “confidence boosters,” there are two artists particularly that he tends to hunt out for recommendation.
Taeyong is called some of the charismatic performers in K-Pop. He has an almost unmatched stage presence and his performances merely ooze confidence, but it surely seems he doesn’t at all times really feel that method on the within.
He not too long ago launched his tune “Love Theory,” and has additionally not too long ago launched his own YouTube channel the place he will probably be that includes loads of different solo work. But whereas that is an thrilling enterprise, it’s additionally a considerably scary one for Taeyong as a result of working alone made him notice how a lot he depends on his members to really feel assured.
I first thought that working as a solo artist won’t be as tough [as in a group], however what I got here to understand is that it’s all the identical and dealing alone, in comparison with being with my SuperM or NCT crew members, I’m truly not as assured. They are my confidence boosters.
But out of all his members, there are two artists whose recommendation Taeyong at all times seeks out, and they’re EXO‘s Baekhyun and SHINee‘s Taemin.
Taeyong turned fairly near them as members of SuperM. He has even mentioned he’d take the MBTI check simply because Baekhyun told him to, even if he had no real interest in taking it earlier than!
He additionally revealed that the solo tune he carried out in NCT 127‘s Seoul live performance in December 2021 was initially meant to be a collaboration with Taemin.
Taeyong actually appears to be like as much as them as each his seniors and his associates, so it’s no shock that he’d come to them for recommendation and for a superb confidence enhance when he wants it.
I actually get lots of recommendation and confidence from them, particularly Baekhyun who guided me to the proper route once I was uncertain of myself.
Taeyong could also be a extremely charismatic performer and a robust chief, but it surely’s good to see how a lot he values his members and his associates, and the way a lot he depends on them. After all, it’s this high quality that made SM Entertainment appoint him as chief of NCT!
