Beyond his excellent discography, his impeccable duality that makes one wonder if he has a twin, his charming personality that invites you into his world and makes you understand what being a WENEE truly means to him, and his exciting dance moves that leave you in a state of awe and an unquenchable desire for more, another key aspect of WonHo and his never-ending charms that sweeps everyone off their feet is his stage outfits.
With his stage outfits, WonHo can either leave nothing to the imagination by showing off his incredibly toned physique or look like a teddy bear by donning on an adorable outfit. Since making his solo debut in 202o, WonHo has blessed us with not just amazing songs that tackle various topics of love, desire, heartbreaks, and his thoughtfulness and gratitude towards WENEEs, but he has also given us incredible stage performances which we can rightfully say has been amplified by his amazing outfits.
When it comes to his outfits, and frankly many other aspects of his artistry, WonHo does what he needs to do, which is, to make us ‘Lose’ control of our inhibitions, and go ‘Crazy’ over him. Make us want to bask in the calmness and serenity of his ‘Blue’. Or simply make us feel a sense of gratitude because we have ‘Somebody’ as genuine as him in our lives. And furthermore, he lets us keep an ‘Open Mind’ about his creativity, uniqueness, and his journey with his art.
From various vlogs about his preparation for each comeback, we have seen WonHo’s thoughtfulness when it comes to his style and what he likes. He is very hands-on when it comes to his outfits. He understands his body and knows he doesn’t just have to look amazing but be comfortable enough to deliver his intense choreographies. Kudos to his brilliant team as well because with each stage performance, WonHo never has a bad outfit on, and just when you think you’ve seen the best, he takes it up a notch with his next performance. Frankly, no idol can pull off the style that WonHo does, and perhaps that is also why he stands out from the rest of the pack.
Daring, exciting, cute, sexy, alluring, elegant, and hot. These are some of the words we can use to describe our absolutely favorite stage performance outfits by WonHo. Check them out below.

1. ‘CRAZY’ era
WonHo in leather is always an iconic moment but WonHo in leather, red hair, a zipped harness, and chains?! That is another level of wow factor that defeats all imagination. With this look, he really was on a mission to have us go crazy with excitement and we gladly raise our hands in defeat and say “You win Mr. Lee HoSeok!! You WIN!!”
WonHo in a crop top! Do we get tired of seeing those sculpted abs? Absolutely not. And frankly, who would? It’s not just his abs that have us stunned but how well put together this look is. From the patterned leather pants to the dog color chains and the studded hand gloves, we can’t think of anyone else this style of outfit would fit, except WonHo.
2. ‘Eye On You’ era
A harness is usually considered a safety piece of equipment but on WonHo, its term of use is reversed as it is perhaps the most deadly thing we have ever seen. This form-fitting outfit with a mid-rib side cut is one that we will never get over as it accentuates WonHo’s incredible physique, showing off his graceful lines and giving him an appeal that is simply spellbinding.
This outfit was simply an art form and there is no other or better way to describe it.
This outfit is definitely top 5 on anyone’s list. WonHo’s outfits are like the boosters we need to feel happy and truly satisfied. The cuts of the denim, the sheer see through crop top, the layered belt, to put it loosely, WonHo ate this look!
3. ‘Open Mind’ era
Keep an open mind! Shed away all your assumptions and typeset about an idol and simply enjoy their creativity. Looking back to this era, perhaps this is something we can draw from WonHo’s solo debut. Breaking barriers, changing perceptions, and inspiring a sense of confidence and body positivity, WonHo made a statement with his looks during this era and left us in awe with not just his music but his visuals too.
A bedazzled denim jacket and a pair of leather pants. WonHo can take even the “simplest” of outfits and make them into a fashion moment. It is just the magnetic and confident aura he exudes that elevates his every look.
This would undoubtedly go down as one of the pop culture moments in K-Pop. From the music video, we were all stunned by how incredible he looked and couldn’t wait to see him wear this on stage. True to his form, he didn’t disappoint, as he left many breathless and gasping for air as he left the stage in flames with this outfit. To date, there have been many idols who have won this outfit but none of them could pull it off the way WonHo did.
4. ‘Blue’ era
‘No one does cute like WonHo and during the ‘Blue’ era we saw his duality shine like no other. From his adorable outfits to his cheeky dance moves, WonHo clearly had so much fun on stage and like always, gave us an entertaining experience with his outfits.
