In a previous interview, Johnny opened about the experience of attending the Met Gala for the first time. “I have been on many red carpets. I think this was the first time that I was really nervous because I didn’t know what was going to happen in there,” he explained.
“I heard that my team couldn’t come inside, so that got me really worried. There were a lot of people I’ve never met before that I really have wanted to meet,” Suh added. “It was just so many new things at once. That’s what made it kind of nerve-racking.”
