I became an EXO-L the minute the first teaser was released but after some members left the group, I kinda distanced myself from EXO because it just “hurt”. Now that I’m going through a nostalgic phase (and thus going back to EXO), I realize how much I love the boys and how much I missed them in my life but one thing I definitely didn’t miss is the fandom. Some people are still as annoying and disrespect as before and it’s just sad tbh.
Just because some groups are more popular like EXO, BTS, etc. Doesn’t mean everyone is meant to like them. This also goes for lesser known groups; just because they have good music(which is subjective anyway) doesn’t mean everyone has to give them attention. It’s just the way the music industry goes. Some people just don’t make it despite deserving it while others get excess attention.
I don’t know why SM is already trying to “take down” EXO in favour of NCT when EXO is still successful and both groups could co-exist.
I’m not an EXO-L but if there is one group who I really look forward to releasing music, it’s EXO. I got hooked on them during the Growl era and since then I’ve liked every single comeback (yes even kokobop). There’s just something so original and unique about their music that I can’t find from any other group. Besides the great vocals, I really love Chanyeol’s voice and rap. I look forward to his parts the most. His flow is really nice to listen to. Their most recent album is one of their best.
EXO are very underrated dancers. People always talk about them being vocal kings (rightfully so) and only ever praise Kai’s dancing, but no matter how easy it may seem, their choreographies are extremely difficult. Kai may be the most talented, but the fact that they’re all able to keep up with him (Chanyeol is doing his best, ok?) is amazing.
I have liked Exos title tracks lately and i must say, i never noticed the members ( i liked the style of the mvs) but GOODNESS that Xuimin guy has such presence… i couldnt take my eyes of him even for a second when i watched one of their lives
2018 has been a real let-down in terms of music, but I was so much looking forward to EXO’s album to save it for me, and it did. Bless them for always putting out albums of the year.
The only collaboration I’d care to see at this point is EXO and Justin Timberlake. That’s it. Whether it would be for clout or not, at least it would be vocally amazing.
I really think Chen is super attractive, but I feel like his stylists just flat out hate him sometimes. Who the heck thought a BRAIDED mullet was a good idea, as if a regular mullet wasn’t bad enough? He has such nice features and I’d wish his stylists would give him hair/clothes/makeup that suit them more often.
Zhang Yíxing is one of the most humble and sweet idols I’ve ever seen. I watched his interview with the iconic Ellie Lee, and he was so adorable. I really appreciated the fact that Ellie continued to compliment him, and reassure him that his English is good and he does look handsome, not because of his team of people, but because he is handsome. He has such a nice heart and even though some idols (naturally) are a bit fake in interviews, you can tell he was being 100% genuine.
