Zico has now more time to do everything that interests him.

Following his debut with BLOCK B in 2011, Zico challenged himself by marking his solo debut in 2014. Since then, he has been into many things, including being a record producer, a member of Fanxy Child, and a judge (i.e., in Show Me The Money).

But outside his career, the rapper also found new hobbies to keep himself occupied before making a comeback.

Zico Says He Is Currently Into Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Series

Zico recently posed for the cover of W Korea’s latest edition. The BLOCK B member appeared as he was recently hailed as the new ambassador for Fendi and Versace’s joint collection.

Following the photoshoot, Zico took his time to open up about his current hobbies, including his love for the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series.

Per the Any Song hitmaker, he grows interested in the anime series following his discharge.

The manga series, written and illustrated by Gege Akutami, explores the life of Yuji Itadori, a high school student who is talented in track and field. He is also a member of the Occult Research Club before becoming a jujutsu user after eating Sukuna’s fingers and becoming his vessel.

The franchise also released its Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie last year.

Aside from being a fan of the anime’s manga series, Zico revealed that he is now into mid-century modern aesthetics and advertisement.

“Since I think that the final stage of creating is marketing, I naturally got interested in advertisements,” he said about his latter interest.

Zico Regaining His Condition

During the same interview, Zico opened up about not being in his greatest condition before starting his military service.

For what it’s worth, he started his service after releasing his third EP RANDOM BOX in July 2020.

Per the rapper, he established a new goal and motivation to “produce results that break expectations.” However, he still finds it hard sometimes.

“I was desperate to delete all the unnecessary data in my mind and press ‘system shut down.’ That was when the notice for my service arrived. For the one year and nine months, I focused on stepping back from the responsibility that comes with creating and clearing out my mind,” he went on.

Now that he is back, Zico pledged to offer more of himself to fans real soon.
