During their interview, it was explained “Tarzan” is a mix of reggae and roots, their first time trying this music. The rapper and main vocalist went to the same art high school. They become members of the group through an audition. The rapper of Wonder Boyz is a former hairdresser who studied hairdressing. He said he was inspired by DJ DOC organized by Kim Chang Yeol, the CEO of ENT102. He felt that he needed to give it a try and passed the audition. He expressed he tried his best.

When they were trainees, they joined Ta-Dah It’s Wonder Boyz. They were a bit worried because they appeared in this show before becoming professional artists. The show was about a group that was playing around. They thought that they couldn’t do well in this program because they were busy preparing their music. At least, it was a great memory for them.

“Tarzan” is a dancehall track with reggae and roots musical styles. They are the first group to try this genre. “Tarzan” was made into a music video with Hyeri from Girl’s Day. She plays the role of Jane in this music video. Bak Chi Gi acted as an odd one out, the one who lives in speculation. He was a student who is addicted to Tarzan. In the music video, he was in love with Jane. The music video is based on this story in the form of a cartoon.

Wonder Boyz expressed that working with Hyeri made them very happy. V-Hawk is from the same school as Hyeri so they are good friends.
