And even aesthetically appealing in his paintings as Ohnim.
As the cover model for W Korea, Mino finally revealed how the sunflower became such an essential part of his style (while sporting a new, short haircut).
He began by explaining that the color of the flower drew him to it.
First, I liked the color. It’s so yellow! It started off with ‘it’s such a pretty yellow.’
He then shared that the flower is “really common” which attracted him to it even more.
He beautifully explained that even though the flower was so common, he’d never really noticed it. “I can’t believe I didn’t know about this pretty creature,” he shared.
He added that his mindset is that of “loving what’s around [him]”, so even though the flower is such a common part of his life, “I still like it.”
