AKMU Chanhyuk States He Likes Wearing Women's Clothing + Believes Clothing Has No Gender
On July 28, MBC's "Radio Star" released a video containing clips of AKMU member Chanhyuk discussing his fashion identity on Naver TV. On this day, "Radio Star" had guests Lee Chanhyuk, Jo Seho, model Lee Hye Jung, and Kim Seong Il.
The four were invited to talk as fashion icons, with all of them talking about their unique fashion philosophy and the items they love.
Chanhyuk talks about his unconventional hair and fashion changes in the pre-released video after being discharged from the military. He confessed that the reason why he messed with his hair a lot, including dyeing, cutting short, and growing out, was because he lived with dark hair for a year and a half while serving in the military.
But, once discharged, he wanted to change.
He confessed that out of all the hairstyles he tried, he wanted to have long hair the most, but the process to get there was long and arduous.
After that, unique fashion items that belonged to the AKMU member were shared, from things that are hard to pull off to women's clothing. Model Lee Hye Jung showed her admiration for Chanhyuk's fashion sense, to which Chanhyuk smiled and replied that he enjoys making bold attempts in fashion.

Chanhyuk says that it is an advantage for shorter men to wear clothes that do not distinguish between genders. Because of that, he prefers wearing women's clothes. He surprised everyone by revealing that his favorite vintage knitwear is actually designed as women's clothing.
The idol also revealed that his clothing choice had caught the attention of his company, YG Entertainment, numerous times. Chanhyuk notes that when he debuted with AKMU, he was a freshman in high school.
Comparing him now to who he was then is "unreasonable," according to the idol.
