Although Suga did not mention the name of her character, she explained that she liked her mysterious aura and J-Hope preferred to be D-Bee because of her natural outfit.
Jungkook chose his character for his clothing and the katana he uses, as he wanted to mix a modern and retro style at the same time. Taehyung preferred to be Álvaro, since he gave him a villainous aura and stressed that he prefers villains over protagonists. Ultimately, Jimin chose his character because he looked like a king.
