NCT’s Johnny makes Met Gala debut in a Peter Do suit and fans (still) aren’t okay

As of writing, it’s been 5 days since the 2022 Met Gala. And no, NCTzens are still in a daze after seeing NCT’s Johnny make his red-carpet debut at “fashion’s biggest night out,” author of this piece included.

Korean-American K-Pop idol Johnny Suh was first confirmed to be attending the prestigious fashion event by the Korean press days after the artist’s “sudden” trip to New York made rounds on social media. And of course, when NCTzens went wild after the NCT member’s attendance was confirmed and set.

Then on May 2, 2022, NCTzen and K-Pop stan Twitter was ablaze with Johnny’s look for the Met Gala, as he looked chic and dapper all dressed up in a satin ensemble by Asian-American designer Peter Do. He is also the only K-Pop artist, apart from Squid Game actress Jung Ho-yeon, to attend this year’s Met Gala.

NCTzens and the locals obviously couldn’t get enough with Johnny’s absolutely dashing look at the red carpet and the Met Gala After Party, and eagle-eyed fans spotted the K-Pop idol sporting rings associated to NCT DREAM and Taeyong and Doyoung (DoTae)’s matching pair.

The Chicago-born idol was also seen “collecting” Western artists and models left and right as he posted photos with Gigi Hadid, Eva Chan, Anderson Paak, the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and others.

On May 3, 2022, U.S. market research company Netbase Quid published its findings for the most mentioned men and women at the 2022 Met Gala. Beating the most-mentioned woman and the 2022 Met Gala Co-Host Blake Lively herself, Johnny Suh was the most-mentioned man and star overall with over 240k mentions on social media. Mr. Suh himself earned a place at Teen Vogue’s “25 Best Dressed” List.

Congratulations on your Met Gala debut, Johnny! Everyone who is everyone still can’t get over your look lol.
