WATCH: Enrique Gil channels BTS’ V in ‘Dynamite’ dance cover
Enrique Gil re-created one of the looks of BTS member Kim Taehyung, better known by his stage name V, in the music video of the K-pop group’s latest hit “Dynamite.”
The actor decided to dress up as the Korean star after his sister Andie, girlfriend Liza Soberano and their friend Rhianna Bacal convinced him to do so. Andie then began Enrique’s transformation into Taehyung by doing his makeup first, as seen in a vlog on his YouTube page on Sept. 30.
Moments later, makeup artist and hairstylist Posh Torres, whom Enrique fondly calls “Mama Posh,” helped the siblings out with their preparations.
Once they finished applying makeup on Enrique, the actor dressed up in a cream long-sleeved polo with a red striped tie behind a green suit vest. He also wore matching green slacks to complete one of the looks of Taehyung in the “Dynamite” music video.
Meanwhile, Torres styled Enrique’s hair as well to make it similar to the K-pop star’s hairdo in the video.
After completing Enrique’s transformation, he showed off his moves in a short dance cover of the popular song. The actor re-created the hit’s choreography in front of a green screen that displayed various backgrounds from the original music video for “Dynamite.”
BTS released “Dynamite” on Aug. 21 along with its accompanying music video on their YouTube page. Weeks after, the song recently earned the top spot on two Billboard music charts. /ra
