I’m not a Baekhyun anti or anything, but he was never really one of my favourites in EXO. I liked his voice, but all his solo work prior to “City Lights” I was never really interested in. That being said, I think “City Lights” is a fire album with absolutely no skips. I was really impressed and surprised by how much I liked it on the first listen, especially since I don’t even like some of my favourite artists music on the first listen sometimes. In terms of Exo’s main vocal line, I definitely think Baekhyun’s City Lights is the best thing ever. I don’t even think I listened to Chen’s album; the title track put me right to sleep. And DO.. well he hasn’t done much but I doubt he would have put out an album with as many bangers as Baekhyun did.
I feel like Sehun pops more as an artist outside of Exo. I don’t know what it is about his position in Exo, but even when he has a lot of lines or screen time in anything, I just don’t think he stands out that much, or really showcases what he can do. But when he’s solo, or even in his unit with Chanyeol, where the focus is at least 50% on him, he really showcases himself well. I’m always looking forward to more activities with him outside the group
it baffles me when people complain about exo being jobless/inactive. They’ve released a full album every year since 2015 (not counting repacks/subunits or jpn albums). They tour every year. Film some sort of exo only variety/reality show every year. Plus cbx, cbx tour, station songs, modeling, movies, dramas, school, chens solo, guesting on variety shows. What exactly do these fans want? vlives? because that’s the only thing i can think of that they aren’t doing.

I dont know why people have to even discuss that EXO Next Door was bad. The web drama with 6 minute episodes had an idol group, a fanfic story written by a 12 year old, and Line promotion in every cut. Why did people even expect anything from it in the first place? Personally, I find it very entertaining. I will forever be thankful to END for providing the crack video makers so much material to work with.
I’ve never followed exo, but that music bank interview they did after baekhyun had downed what he thought was water but actually was soju is so funny. Everything about it is so perfect, from how he’s acting, to the other member’s faces, to irene and bogum (the hosts) desperately trying to hold in their laughing. It never gets old.
Admin Note: Here is the interview OP is talking about.
ChanHun will be the best subunit of 2019. 🔥I’m pumped to see them burn the stage.
Admin Note: This subunit has now officially been named EXO-SC!
I still can’t get over the fact that DO is enlisting soon. And it’s not because I’m just going to miss him, but more so because I feel it’s so random. Like he just woke up bored one day and thought “well my group isn’t doing shit so I may as well just enlist now, get this over with, and maybe by the time I get back my agency will have something for me to do”. Although I do hope multiple members next year enlist too. I want them to get it over with while I’m occupied with other groups atm lol

I’m honestly sad about D.O. enlisting in the military. I will miss the sound of an angel on any upcoming albums from EXO.
At first I didnt understand the appeal of idol standees. Now I got manipulated into thinking they are cute, thanks to all the instances of EXO standees being stolen, EXO-ls bringing those standees to prom etc. I wouldn’t mind a kyungsoo standee in my room tbh.
I love that Baekhyun has his own YouTube channel where he vlogs casual parts of his day! the one which included his dog is my literal favorite!
