◆ EXO’s spirit “Olympic Hall, we thought it would be heard even without our mics”
On April, during their debut showcase, the 12 members of EXO shouted their group’s greetings energetically without using their mics ‘We Are One’ and unwillingly made an NG. It was of course, due to the fact that they greeted without mics. During the incident, the fans and the EXO members were both confused, but with the quick reaction of ‘Hallyu’s Gwanggaeto King’ Leeteuk who was MC-ing, EXO greeted the fans sonorously once again ‘We Are One’ while lifting their mics this time. When asked about what happened, the EXO members explained “We thought it would be heard even without our mics”. It wasn’t that they were nervous at all; If the oppas say so, it’s true.
◆ EXO acting up to their words “Won’t we love anymore?”
In their debut song ‘MAMA’, the EXO members keep talking about a desolate digital world without love and communication. If you don’t really know about it, you can type ‘EXO MAMA’ on a green window (T/N: Naver is Korea’s top portal and it’s green). When you press the Enter key, you will be able to see all of the lyrics of young boys’, howling about a desolate digital prison made of a language with 0 and 1 only, scattering trash that has no life, emotions nor warmth. EXO-K revealed in the interview that before going on stage, they would shout their chant “Let’s love” and though the interview with Joynews24, they emphasized once again on love and showed that the song was according to their moves and they’re ‘acting up to their words’.
When asked to make a cool ending comment, EXO members shouted “We love you. Let’s love”.
◆ After getting to know Tao, he’s also an EXO fan? “I collect the hyungs’ photocards”
EXO-M’s Tao is 20 in Chinese age and 19 in Korean age; he’s born in 1993. He leaves a strong impression as his specialty is martial arts and his eyes show a strong charisma, hence, a lot of people assume that he has a strong personality too. But truthfully, Tao is a delicate man who laughs and cries a lot.
During a Chinese interview, Tao wept buckets when he sent a video message to his EXO-K hyungs. On ‘M!Countdown’ when EXO-M and K were reunited, we met Tao and even though he was embarrassed about it, he replied frankly “I cried because I missed the hyungs”.
Actually, Tao has all of the EXO members’ photocards. Hence, every time he misses his hyungs, he can take them out; he has all of the 12 photocards, including his. Why is it not phone pictures or polaroid pictures but the photocards from the album? Tao confessed shyly “I have polaroids, phone pictures too but I also have the photocards” and said “If I have the photocards, it becomes a souvenir” making all of his hyungs have a fatherly smile.
Tao also promised “Later on if I get a good occasion, I will show it to the fans”. Next time, if Tao shows the 12 photocards he collected to the fans, he might get ‘envious to death’ glares from fans, even those who already have the 12. Collecting the 12 isn’t easy.
EXO-K and M’s dictionary of the various researches on their charms is coming to an end. The EXO members are going to end their busy promotions of their debut song ‘MAMA’ in mid-june and are going to have concerts abroad etc. The Earth conquest of the alien boys who fell in the middle of the Korean music industry will keep going for sure!
