I am getting a crush on Epik High as a group as much as on Tablo as an artist—there’s something awesome about their energy even though they’re becoming mature men. There’s actually something fascinating to me about the way hiphop groups seem to be the best aging artists with crossover to k-pop.
But it’s not a kind of maturing, here, that makes them less handsome, or less stylish. Kind of the opposite, actually…while they don’t necessarily look at home in the baseball jackets with bright varsity spryness, they do look fantastic in black leather variants.
