Hyukoh Band Vocalist, Oh Hyuk Solo Photoshoot and Interview with Vogue Korea
On October 16, 2017 Hyukoh’s vocalist Oh Hyuk did a solo photoshoot and interview with Vogue Korea. They talked about a lot of matters, including his career as an Indie band member. Let’s take a look at their short interview and picture of his photoshoot below!
Oh Hyuk talked about his love for fashion, that started when he was young, the interviewer began by asking, “In elementary school, your mom dresses you, right?”. Then he answered, “Everything is clean and matches. When I was alone, I always wanted to dress myself differently.”
During middle school, Hyuk Oh discovered a Japanese style magazine called 20, and fell in love with the country’s designers. He became an Internet surfer, sifting through sites for new collections and rare items. “Then with my allowance, I’d go out and buy Undercover, Soloist, Comme Des Garcons” he said. “Some brands that are gone now, there was a brand called Glass.. it was like that.” He then continued:
“But more than the music, it was the visuals. I liked bondage, those kinds of clothes. I wore leather jackets, my hair like that,” he says. “Ever since I was young, the musicians I liked had a cool look. Fashion, music, and performing, it all went together for them.”
By forming Hyukoh Band, he broke the stereotype. Where K-pop stars pride themselves on their chameleonic nature, showing a dramatically new look in each new album, Hyuk Oh and his band have always stuck to one. He says, “There isn’t a conceptual style for us, we are just people who like clothes, people who know fashion. We just wear what we want to wear.”
It sounds simple, but in Korea it is nothing short of revolutionary. Hyuk Oh ticks off the list, “Our drummer likes hip-hop, so he will dress like that. Our guitarist is into quiet, casual, clean clothes like Wales Bonner. And last, Our bassist dresses like a college student.” He laughs.
The last question was whether he aspired to launch his own line, as so many artists do. Here is Oh Hyuk’s answer, “I have interest.. but I’m not going to do it,” he continued. “There are people who do it well, let those people do it. I’ll do my music, those people make the clothes. But with people I like, if we can work together and collaborate then i’d like that.”
His honest, forthright nature and sincere passion for good clothes is what makes him such a compelling figure in Seoul’s Indie music and fashion scenes. There’s no doubt that he has had a hand in shifting the course of style here.
