I don’t think Sehun and Chanyeol are as bad of rappers as some people make them out to be. When I finally decided to give Exo a try, I heard they were really bad, but when I listened to Chanyeol (I think CMB) I really enjoyed it. I think it’s the fact that a lot of Exo’s songs are pop with little to no urban influence, so their raps come out forced and random. Sometimes they sound fire (Monster, Do It Together) and other times it’s just out of place..
I wish SM would let Chanyeol put his songs on EXO’s albums. I know they have a little creative freedom and have written lots of songs, but Chanyeol in particular has shown he’s a great lyricist and composer. SM really needs to give him more credit.
I’m sorry if this ends up sounding cringeworthy but I feel like YunJae, EunHae, HunHan and ChanBaek will go down as some of the biggest, if not THE biggest ships in all of kpop. I’ve never seen even non-fans this convinced about a ship being “real” anywhere else. I mean people call YunJae and HunHan “tragic” and yet acknowledge how strong the ships were. I in no way advocate shipping real people together. It’s extremely inappropriate and I know that. It just amazes me how popular ships can be. SM’s marketing sure is something else.
Monster by EXO was one of the first kpop songs I listened to, and prior to listening to EXO, I saw many people making fun of Chanyeol as a rapper. However, I was surprised to find that the part I liked best from Monster was Chanyeol’s. As I explored more of EXO’s music I found that he holds his ground as a rapper just fine. (especially in more recent EXO songs). It’s all a matter of taste at the end of the day. I’m glad I wasn’t swayed by the loud kpop stans and just enjoyed the music.
Baekhyuns singing voice was much deeper and soulful than I would have thought. I was also surprised Lay’s singing voice it was much higher than I thought it would be. Chanyeol also have a super deep voice you wouldn’t expect Because of his boyish looks.
Okay but Chanyeol is so EASY TO LOVE. I MEAN HE IS LITERALLY A TALL BALL OF SUNSHINE. I admire him so much, he’s so talented and yet humble and cute. ALSO, HIS HUGS ARE SO HEART FLUTTERING, HAVE YOU SEEN THE WAY HE WRAPS HIS LIMBS AROUND THE OTHER PERSON, bless :’)
