Johnny Suh of NCT was a fresh face at the Met Gala 2022, but he made an impression. The Chicago-born K-pop sensation flew in from Seoul, South Korea, with designer Peter Do to attend the Costume Institute Gala in New York City.
Johnny has developed a distinct aesthetic profile both on and off the stage since his debut. We see Johnny in a different appearance with each comeback, and we see his personal style shine on his vlog series Johnny’s Communication Center in the interim, especially through his fashion evaluations.
Peter Do, the Vietnamese-born, NYC-based designer behind many of your favorite runway and celebrity outfits, seems to have noticed Johnny’s style. The LVMH Graduates Prize winner, known for his innovative, inventive suits, created a three-piece ensemble in black satin. Johnny’s first Met Gala ensemble included bold boots and a sharp hairdo.
Johnny told Teen Vogue all about his Met Gala debut, from working with Peter Do to ultimately walking the red carpet.

On Working with Peter Do
Our teams had been trying to get us together for a long time, but we were waiting for the ideal moment, and I suppose the Met Gala was the quickest and greatest venue to showcase Peter Do and me.
Everything transpired at a breakneck speed. He sent me the sketch a week ago and began working on it then. I pay close attention to the nuances of clothing, and I believe Peter Do does as well. I believe the Met Gala’s concept and Peter Do’s hallmark style were created in conjunction.
And as soon as I arrived in the United States from Korea, we went to get fitted, and everything went really quickly. Everything went really smoothly. Thankfully, all of my things fit well as soon as I arrived. As a result, there were no issues and everything was in order.
On Choosing Accessories and Hair Color
There were a lot of choices, but we settled on one earring since it was simple and stood out.
Before I came from Korea, I believe there was a lot of discussion regarding my hair color. We wanted something slicker. Something that showcased a more laid-back side of myself.
On the Song that Best Fits the Look
Because I felt confident in that clothing yesterday, our song “Kick It” would be a wonderful match.
On Walking the Red Carpet
I’ve walked countless red carpets. This was the first time I was genuinely worried because I didn’t know what would happen inside. When I heard that my team wouldn’t be able to enter, I became really concerned. And there were a number of people I’d never met before who I was eager to meet. It was basically a slew of fresh experiences all at once. That’s what made things a little tense.
It was fantastic. It was less stressful than I anticipated. A large number of individuals were present to assist me. I had beautiful individuals in line with me, and everyone was so nice. It was not difficult to strike up a discussion with anyone.
We had Eva Chen with us since Peter Do also dressed her, and she was extremely kind and kind, and people came up to chat with her because she knew everyone, so I got to meet everyone.
“Finally it’s my moment,” I thought as I walked down the red carpet. There is a pretty lengthy line, and we waited for around 40 minutes. I was just thinking, “Finally, I was able to proceed. I’d like to go inside right now “I tried not to show it, though. I was just trying to maintain a cool demeanor.
