ATEEZ, the dynamic K-pop group, graces the cover of PAPER Magazine, sharing insights on their Coachella debut and artistic evolution. Known for their intense performances and storytelling, ATEEZ captivated Coachella with a standout stage presence, including a giant inflatable Kraken. Members reflected on their bond, creative process, commitment to authenticity, and deep connection with their fans, ATINY. Their music, often mischaracterized as “noise,” aims to break preconceptions with its energy and power. Upcoming projects include a new mini-album, “GOLDEN HOUR: Part. 1,” and a North American tour, highlighting their continued global influence.

The members also discussed their definitions of success and the importance of mutual trust and passion within the group with Seonghwa speaking on this trust  — “I have such confidence in them that we could go into this with absolutely no fear. If I were to do this alone, I would have been a lot more nervous and anxious about things, but because it was the eight of us … when I look back on our time preparing for [this moment], they’re very beautiful memories.”
