BTS‘s V recently sat down with soloist IU for an interview on her fun musical variety program, IU’s Palette.
Together, the two talented idols discussed their friendship, talked about V’s recent solo debut, played games, and performed songs live.
Much of the episode focused on V’s long-awaited solo debut as the talented BTS member broke down the creative process that brought his solo album Layover to life.
To help with the creative direction of the album, V sought the help of ADOR CEO Min Hee Jin, who is also the creative director of fellow HYBE Labels artist NewJeans.
V had previously revealed during a Weverse live that Min Hee Jin had surprised him with an impromptu photoshoot one evening, which resulted in more natural and laidback photos as the BTS member had no time for preparation.
V revealed that for his impromptu photoshoot with Min Hee Jin, he was only wearing lotion because he was initially under the impression that he was only meeting her for dinner.
IU complimented the naturally handsome star, praising the concept photos for his solo album while sharing that she liked the photos of him not wearing makeup even better.
V said he “just had fun” during the photoshoot, which IU attributed to him getting such “great results.”
In response, V revealed the reason he chose a more natural approach for his concept photos by hilariously asking IU if she understood the feeling of getting “concerned and embarrassed” when an album’s conceptual photos are too “over the top.”
Having experienced that himself, V made sure he “filled the album” with photos he “liked very much.”
While discussing his solo debut, V admitted there was one “regret” he had. Check out more on that in the article below!
