Check Out EXO’s Baekhyun’s Mullet Hair

Byun Baek-hyun, or as you may be more familiar with, Baekhyun (born May 6, 1992), is a South Korean singer, songwriter, actor, and model. This handsome oppa is a member of South Korean-Chinese boy-group EXO, its sub-unit EXO-K, and the sub-unit EXO-CBX. As an idol, his physical appearance is always in the headlines, and idols often change their hairstyles before a group’s comeback. In 2017, EXO’s Baekhyun shocked fans and others with his new look. The new style caught some controversy because he was rocking a mullet.

Mullets refer to haircuts that are short in the front and long in the back. The mullet was on-trend in 1970s, worn by rock stars like Rod Stewart, David Bowie, Andy Mackay of Roxy Music, and Paul McCartney. In 1990s the style was worn by the hip-hop group, the Beastie Boys, due to their promotion song Mullet Head. Mullet, itself, can be a term used to describe a person with dubious intelligence.

Baekhyun used the style for EXO’s special comeback, One Summer Night Ko Ko Bop, on July 18, 2017. He talked about his hairstyle while on Naver V Live, during EXO’s promotion, “Because of my new mullet hairstyle, soccer player Kim Byung Ji’s name has been appearing on related search term. I had this hairstyle when I was in kindergarten. My mom tried it on me after watching the US drama ‘MacGyver.’” He continued, “It feels weird to be having same hairstyle after a decade. It might seem strange, but since it is part of our comeback concept, please give it another look.” Well, let’s take that other look, along with one at Baekhyun’s previous hairstyle:
