ENHYPEN is fresh off the release of Orange Blood, the K-pop stars’ fifth mini album, and the group sat down with Billboard‘s Tetris Kelly to discuss their exponential growth in the music industry and their love for their fanbase, ENGENEs.
“We had Orange Blood in mind when we dropped our last album, Dark Blood,” member Jungwon explained. “The songs, much like the title, carried a darker theme overall, but Orange Blood has this warm vibe to its name. It reflects our desire to get closer to ENGENEs on a deeper, more personal level.”
About the single, “Sweet Venom,” Jake opened up about writing on the track. “I’m so glad to be part of our album. I thought about some of our old songs and how the lyrics were then, so boom. It just happened,” he shared.
After two sold sold-out shows in Seoul and a Japanese dome tour, ENHYPEN completed the U.S. leg of their Fate World Tour on Oct. 22, during which the singers played to over 85,000 fans, reps say, across seven shows in six cities: Los Angeles, Glendale, Houston, Dallas, Newark, and Chicago. Their previous mini album, Dark Blood, earned the act its highest charting release to date, peaking at No. 4 and spending a total of 10 cumulative weeks on the Billboard 200 in June.
