SM TOWN’s Halloween parties are always what fans look forward to each year. The artists dress up and have fun, while fans get to see their faves in uncommon looks. This year, NCT 127‘s Jungwoo and Taeyong pulled up to the party as Twilight‘s iconic vampire couple, Edward and Bella.
While they sadly did not glitter under the sunlight, they looked almost 100% identical to the couple. Taking inspiration from the Breaking Dawn poster, Jungwoo and Taeyong dressed in leather jackets and long pants. Their makeup was kept dark and in muted tones to look more vampiric while heaving contouring gave them celestial cheekbones and hallowed faces to match. Sadly, no one was available to play Renesmee!
While the photographs were released on October 31, 2021, Taeyong belatedly shared the reason as to why they decided on Bella and Edward during a video call fansign on November 1, 2021.

Originally, all the members were going to go as vampires together. Our schedules were so tight that we almost didn’t get to do Halloween but we thought fans would be anticipating it so we decided to all go as vampires. But everyone started thinking differently and we decided to just do our own thing. Then Jungwoo suddenly said he wanted to be Bella, so I thought I would be his opposite partner and we ended up doing it together.
For those that don’t know, NCT 127’s latest song, “Favorite” has a vampire theme. They probably wanted to match it to their comeback during the busy period but ended up going in different directions! We’re glad we got to see a reprise of Jungwoo dressing pretty though! During their last Halloween, he went as Rose from Titanic.
We can’t wait to see what they will dress up as next year. Check out “Favorite” below.
