Open World Entertainment revealed that they spent a whopping $100,000 USD just for the outfits of the boys of X-5! Representatives of Open World stated, “Outfits and accessories change with every concept, so there’s a bit of a difference in the expenses for each of the concepts. On average, however, one outfit costs about $1,500 to $2,000 USD to produce.”
So far, the group has shown us a total of four concepts: two different suits at their showcase, a ‘fantasy’ leather outfit for their “Music Bank” debut, and a white see-through look for their “Don’t Put On An Act” performance. But wait, there are still three outfits that are on standby. If the outfits don’t gather a positive response then they’ll switch or chang for an additional three outfits left. So if you sum them up, they have a total of 10 outfits each. Do the math and then you’ll come up with a total of $100,000.
Representatives added, “Their outfits are an important factor in showing the charms of the individual members, so we paid extra attention to them.”
The one responsible for producing these outfits is no other than Kang Bo Eun. He’s the same person who works for the artists SM Entertainment. He said, “The members are not only tall, but have extremely long arms and legs. We can’t get off-the-rack clothes for them, so our main area of interest was to bring out the positive points of their physical traits.”
Meanwhile, X-5 will be performing on all three of the public broadcast music programs this week, “Don’t Put On An Act.
