Patio fans wire selection

I'm in the process of adding 2 ceiling fans to my covered patio. I planned on using 1/2" EMT and compression fittings but wasn't sure which type of wire to use 12AWG THHN or romex 12/2.? If both are acceptable which is easier to work with?

In conduit the individual conductors are easier to work with.

Welcome to the forums.

joed is absolutely correct.
Two separate conductors of THHN/THWN is definitely easier to work with.
Easy to make changes later too.
