EXO-M "Yin Yue Feng Yun Bang" Backstage part 2

[This article could be fake!]
Backstage Crew's review on EXO:

"...I am not a fan of any of the groups but as crew I have an access to backstage.
In actual fact backstage happenings isn’t like what you would normally see on TV, stars don’t interact much with others, those that you see are previously scripted.
Because of my age, I don’t really fancy any idols, and I’m not really familiar with any of their names so I feel like I don’t have the right to say much.
I’ll just say what I feel about EXO.

Every idol has their own make up and dressing room, but it isn’t as comfortable/relaxing place as you think. There is a specific time as to when an idol must arrive at the venue and if he/she doesn’t make an appearance then, the performance slot would be forfeited. Most idols get ready a few hours before for convenience purposes.

This isn’t the first time I’m meeting a new group, most of the time I just don’t get the chance to sit down and chat with them.

I can remember EXO’s leader’s name but as for the rest of the members, I only have a vague memory of their names. My first and really deep impression of them: really courteous and they bow really sincerely. Although the bowing wasn’t done to (person who wrote this), he/she was rather taken aback by their gesture because when the members were bowing their backpack actually hit their own heads (which mean they bowed really low)

Of course every artist would be nervous before stage entrance, be it new or experienced idols, nervousness can’t be avoided. Because I don’t really know all of their names, I’ll just write what I remember.

1. Before getting on stage, one of the members (pretty tall guy - Kris) stood at the stairs and called his parents

2. Basically for all other artistes they would stay backstage for awhile, and go on stage expressionless after. But for EXO it was different. Leader patted one member’s (rather short guy- Xiu Min) back and told him about the after performance dinner that was planned.

3. After the PD’s queue, one of them was really cute, being silly and cheerful for nothing

4. Because it wasn’t live TV, they had it recorded twice initially. After the first recording they headed straight for the dressing room. They looked pretty contented with their first round of performance. After that 2 members came out of the dressing room with their hands over each other’s shoulders

5. The next time I saw them backstage was around the ending, perhaps they were already tired, two members say on the floor, and had their faces covered. One of them was speaking to the leader, but all of them were really quietly, no idea why.

6. When getting off stage some of them held hands and lowered their heads. Their eyes faces and eyes were red.

I only heard after the event about what happened on stage, with the award winners expressing his views on MIC’s unfair treatment. I understand the coldness and unwelcomed feeling one gets upon stepping into the society. I also know how it feels to be unfairly treated in this society, but it’s just how this works, there is no other alternative..."

EXO-M Controversy on Yin Yue Feng Yun Bang part 1

I know I've Already added this video but watch it again after reading the few sentences I'll post.

There are all kinds of things that the host and other groups said either directly or indirectly about EXO-M, EXO-M as a whole was super polite and handled the awkward situation well. Proud of them! I think that

0:57 - Host to screaming fans: They are Korean so they don’t understand Chinese, it doesn’t matter how much loud you all scream.

1:03 - Kris: actually, we have 4 Chinese members so we can understand Chinese.

(HAHAHA Nice Job Kris. Polite yet to the point^^ )

2:37 - The other two groups on stage were paying respect to a veteran singing duo and Lu Han also showed support by singing a famous verse by the veteran duo.

2:53 - Kris said a bunch of nice things like how they all listened to the veteran duo’s songs while growing up, and that the veteran duo’s songs made their youth brighter…etc

(when you are in China, you just got to play by its rules and pay respects to all their Chinese sunbaes, so wise move by Lu Han & Kris. Especially Lu Han, he sounded really genuine)

3:02 - don’t know who it is, but one of the member of the other two groups commented in a sarcastic tone after Kris’ nice words: “philosophical…”

3:10 - A member of the pink-clothed group started talking about how while there are so many groups nowadays competing for market share, it’s important to support home-grown idol groups because Chinese should be united (implying that EXO-M is not “home-grown,” which is totally not fair because the Chinese members, except Kris, in EXO-M grew up in China!)

Apparently in the veteran duo group’s award acceptance speech, they even made some comments on how the idol group on stage left (in the beginning of the video) can surpass idol groups from Korea. I don’t think they were directly targeting EXO-M, they were just trying to encourage the idol group industry in China since it’s still in the initial developing stages, far behind Korea’s idol-production machines. Though their comments were insensitive considering that EXO-M from SME Korea who just serenaded them was still on stage at that time, I think that’s forgivable given that they are veterans and also did not know about EXO-M at that time. However, the pink-clothed group should not have made those bitter comments because they were of the same rookie status.

I guess much of the controversy surrounding this can be attributed to the fact that EXO-M is new and people in China have not had much exposure to them yet. Also the impressive fanchant for EXO in the audience were a sharp contrast to the somewhat muted fanchants for the other groups, therefore, the host and the other groups had to make light of the situation by doing some encouragements. I think that with time, EXO-M will be able to appeal more to the masses in China by demonstrating their associations with Chinese culture and impressing them with pure talent, which has no boundaries.:)

So EXO fans in China, don’t be too hot-headed and start bashing the veteran group or the other two rookie groups on stage! Face all difficulties with a smile like EXO!
