With this explosion of ingredients, it’s a Perfect All-Kill (PAK) of stardom for DRIPPIN, reason why they are worthy to be on people’s radar. Apart from the group’s mesmerizing qualities, it doesn’t hurt that they churn out radio-friendly songs for K-pop music enthusiasts such as “Nostalgia,” “Young Blood,” “Villain,” “Zero,” “So Good,” and “Free Pass.”  

DRIPPIN is a seven-member K-pop group from Woollim Entertainment composed of YUNSEONG (leader, vocal, main dancer), HYEOP (main vocal), CHANGUK (vocal), DONGYUN (main rapper), MINSEO (vocal), JUNHO (vocal) and ALEX (vocal rapper).  

Before the group’s debut on October 28, 2020, all members except for Alex were part of the popular competition reality show Produce X 101. Through KT’s Seezn reality show We Are Drippin, the group’s journey leading up to their debut was documented bringing them to fans and audiences closer.

The group’s name DRIPPIN itself carries several meanings like “amazing,” “handsome,” “fashionable,” “sexy,” and “cool” which all point to a strong potential for them to get even bigger than they are now.

Next to DRIPPIN is their fandom called DREAMIN who support the boys every step of the way. The official fan club’s name means that their fans “dream together with them and go with them to achieve their dreams.” 

In this Metro.Style exclusive, the DRIPPIN members gamely introduced themselves according to their identity and personality as well as their favorite villains (living up to their album concept and theme). Interestingly, the boys have a colorful and playful way to describe themselves.

With K-Pop idols visiting the Philippines one by one since the travel restrictions eased up, there is much hope for DRIPPIN to do a concert here, too. The members are already excited at the idea of visiting the Philippines and meeting the Filipino DREAMINs.

Who among them has been to the country already? It’s Alex! He tells us, “I visited the Philippines twice already. First trip to Cebu and Manila and second trip to Boracay. On my first visit, I found the place very charming and wonderful. On my second visit, I felt a sense of healing from not only the scenery but also from the people. So overall, I have a great impression of the Philippines.” 

Changuk also looks forward to flying to the country, saying, “I’ve never been there myself but I’ve heard a lot of stories from my friends about how wonderful it is. So if I get a chance, I want to go on a vacation to the Philippines with the members or my family.”

Meanwhile, Junho took the opportunity to express his appreciation for Filipino fans. “Although we have met many international fans, our fans from the Philippines have sent us so much love and support from the start. I wish we could perform in the Philippines as soon as possible,” he smiles.

DRIPPIN just made their comeback with their first full-length album Villain: The End, featuring the track “The One.” The expected November 1 release was postponed in light of the Itaewon tragedy.
