Behind-the-scenes footage of idols is also endless resources for creating legendary memes, and even spotting comeback hints or rumors. Now, let’s take a look at the behind-the-scenes images that make headlines in the Kpop fans’ community.
Despite having a professional image on stage, the most popular Kpop group BTS is still favored by fans as “national clowns” in a positive way thanks to many of their hilarious moments caught in behind-the-scenes footage.
Since each member has a different sense of humor, to count all the funny images of the group backstage must take days. However, true ARMY will never forget the advertisement of BTS collaborating with BODYFRIEND.
When the official photos were released, BTS brought out the image of charming and fashionable gentlemen.
But little did the public know that once they didn’t have to pose anymore, BTS returned to be a whole circus.
Though the concept of the commercial was bright and cozy as all members were dressed in casual outfits αѕѕumingly for autumn, behind the scenes, the four guys Jin, J-hope, V, and Jimin had to squirm in the cold because of the freezing weather.
They all looked like little match boys who had suffered so much and longed for a decent, lovely home to live in.
In another video, it shows that while Suga and V acted like professional actors, RM, being a complete dork himself, only cared about his own image and the mαѕѕage chair.
He even danced some very seductive moves around the chair like it was his longtime lover and there’s no one watching them… until the staff called.
Known as the top stars in the advertising industry, BLACKPINK always deliver fashionable and luxurious images in every photoshoot.
However, if the public watches the behind the scenes videos, they might be immensely ̾s̾h̾o̾c̾ked to learn what was truly going on.
During the photo session with Marie Claire 2018, the four girls had an artistic black-and-wh̾i̾t ̾e photo which brings out a whole dreamy vibe.
Though their hair might be a bit messy, with that gorgeous visuals, BLACKPINK can still turn into muses who just stepped out of fairytales.
However, reality is one hard pill to swallow:
The photo was taken not in a large and clean studio with huge lamps, but in a small, hazy room that looked a bit cramped.
And the top advertising queens of Kpop were not sitting on a clean ground or in decent chairs, but on a small mattress that doesn’t even look new.
If this behind-the-scenes photo was released before the official one, no one, probably even fans, would have thought they were BLACKPINK.
The messy hair here doesn’t seem to serve as an artistic purpose anymore – combining that with the slippers lying around, their cowering postures and dopey faces, the 4 girls look like they just woke up from a long night’s sleep after partying hard, wasn’t aware of the surrounding and definitely did not prepare to have cameras point at them.
Now you cannot look at the official photo the same as before, right?
3. Red Velvet’s Irene
Irene, the SM’s 3rd generation beauty goddess of beauty, has always been known by fans and the public for being incredibly photogenic. It might be a tad difficult to find the moment where Irene is unrefined.
However, if you just dig a little bit deeper, there is a series of funny behind-the-scenes photos where this goddess just looks ridiculously hilarious.
In the official photos for Grazia magazine in 2018, Irene was seen wearing beautiful bohemian dresses that make her look like a nature fairy.
However, the bottom parts of her whole outfit were not shown. It turned out Irene was wearing sweat pants underneath the dresses and flat shoes!
The dresses and Irene’s stunning visuals were probably the main subject here so the crew did not care what the idol wore from her waist down.
Though the elegant image has now all gone, fans still adore this girl and find her extremely relatable as now she looks just like any other girls who want to be comfortable while wearing dresses.
Perhaps many people do not know, many SM idols, including EXO, have worked with the “crazy woman” Seo Ye-Ji.
In 2013, when Seo Ye Ji was still a rookie actress and EXO had just debuted for 2 years, they had the opportunity to collaborate on a school uniform advertisement.
The visual combination in the commercial made fans go head over heels, but when they saw the behind-the-scenes photos, they could only roll on the floor laughing.
The reason is that poor Chanyeol had to try so hard to stay in the frame.
With the height of 1m85, Chanyeol looked like a giant there and might cause the photo to seem unbalanced.
The photographer possibly had to ask Chanyeol to stretch his legs to reduce his height and match the others.
Now if you look back at the official photo, you will find how weird-looking the main rapper’s legs are – it’s because they were actually edited.
This is not the first time he has to do so as the height of the EXO members while standing together is strikingly different.
Once, Suho even took advantage of his “mother’s power” as the leader of EXO to ask Chanyeol to stand in this pose while taking the photo.
Well, let’s just say that being tall is not always the best.
5. MONSTA X
Sharing the same feeling with Chanyeol (EXO) is MONSTA X’s Minhyuk. When he was taking pictures with the group, Minhyuk also did a unique pose to fit into the frame.
Looking at the finished good of the photoshoot, everything seemed completely normal, right? And Minhyuk was sitting in the chair, no big deal.
But when the owner posted by himself a behind-the-scenes photo on MONSTA X’s official Twitter account, the fans could not help but retweet and share the photos as respect for Minhyuk’s sincerity.
So in reality, Minhyuk has to stretch his legs all the way and squat to take proper pictures with his members, before the photographer figured out a better way for him to fit in the photo.
Though the idol looked miserable right there, many fans even joked that thanks to these photos, they can see that Minhyuk’s bust is amazing.
6. BLACKPINL’s Lisa and Rosé
BLACKPINK’s two youngest sisters combination is the symbol of a beautiful friendship – when a skíllful and dedicated photographer meets a model who poses well.
During a small trip, the two girls took a lot of beautiful photos. Nonetheless, looking at what’s going on behind the scenes, we can see the sophistication of the photography art, even if it’s just a commemorative photo for the outing.
We can see how Lisa bent her body as much as possible and was so ready to lie her whole body on the ground so that the final result could come out beautifully.
Lisa is definitely the qualified best friend that everyone should have. However, unfortunately for us, we don’t always have such a good photographer friend like her.
7. EXO’s Baekhyun
In the drama Moon Lovers, the scene where Baekhyun ended his life has brought tears to many fans and viewers alike.
However, if people were to see the behind-the-scenes photo of Baekhyun before watching the actual episode, they would probably think it was just a comedy scene, since even though Baekhyun had an arrow piercing his body, his co-actress still laughed cheerfully.
And the male lead Lee Jun Ki even took a selfie with a smirky face while Baekhyun was quietly lying on the ground… to sleep.
Yes, the member of EXO actually fell asleep at this point.
During filming, Baekhyun also had many other schedules overlapping and didn’t have enough time to properly rest.
Therefore, this male idol has to take every moment possible to take his precious nap.
That was also why the producer decided to end Baekhyun’s role so early so that the idol can ensure his health and schedule.
Red Velvet’s Seulgi
If you only look at the final photos of Red Velvet’s main dancer collab with Dispatch, Seulgi looked like a princess hiding in the woods, which seemed so aesthetically pleasing.
However, fans can’t help feeling both confused and amused when they look at the behind-the-scenes images of this photoshoot.
In the released product on Naver site, Seulgi’s pretty face was peeking through the green leaves and her hand was putting on a big tree branch.
Now you would have thought that either the Dispatch crew probably had built a whole fake tree in the studio or this photo was edited so that there could be a big branch appearing there.
If so then you were mistaken. This photo was 100% taken outdoors, and the Seulgi had to climb on the tree in order to have that “fairy in the wood” effect.
After learning about how things truly went behind the scenes, both fans and the public have to praise this brave girl for her great sacrifice for art.
Thanks to this behind-the-scenes photo, people can confirm that there is no bad angle at all, it’s just that you will need to make some sacrifices at υиєχρє¢тє∂ places.
