He was an intelligent kid who used to compete in math competitions before returning to Korea and participating in a survival show called I-LAND. He made up the final list, ranking 3rd out of all contestants and debuting as the Rapper and Vocalist of the group.
Moving on with his fashion style, he mostly has two types of aesthetics- the bad boy and dark aesthetic, and light and soft aesthetics. He mostly jumbles between these two depending on the look he feels wearing. The unique part of his fashion sense is his footwear. Out of all idols I know, he's the only one who loves wearing dress shoes- and it honestly suits him the best.

Black Textured Beanies
Jake also has these black textured beanies that he matches with his black turtle neck undershirt.

Jake is one of the members that doesn't have ear piercings. Although he does not have one, he likes wearing curb chains that are perfect for between his neck and shoulder distance. It's simple but could make quite an impact.
When it comes to shoes, Jake has a different taste. He mostly likes wearing dress shoes- these shoes are perfect if you want to create an illusion of having long legs and additional height. They are pretty stylish and could go well with trousers.
