In a press conference for their mini-album “Game”, the members of Cross Gene discussed some of their personal role models! Member Casper said, "Since debut, my role models were Chris Brown and Kanye West. I want to become an artist with good sense who can pursue my own fashion sense and be good at not only singing and rapping but also performing."
Member Takuya was up next, and he chose model/actor Lee Soo Hyuk which got him a bunch of teasing from his fellow members. He said, "I want the aura and vibe that are unique to Lee Soo Hyuk. Last year, I did a lot of acting and tried out modeling, both of which were fun. I want to become a cool person like Lee Soo Hyuk."
Member Sangmin himself picked Pharrell Williams as his role model, which is understandable since Pharrell is a huge fashion icon as well as a world renown musician, which pretty much every entertainer strives to be.
