EXO-K comes up with compliments for each member in their latest interview
Since their debut showcase, the members of EXO have been surging in popularity and have already made quite a few remarkable memories. The boys of EXO-K took time out of their busy schedules to sit with SBS News to touch base on what they’ve been doing over the past month, as well as share more insight into each of the members.
When asked about their busy schedule, Baekhyun replied, “We don’t consider it hard. It’s something that we’ve all been dreaming about since we were little so it’s fun. It’s what we were truly desperate to do, and we’ve always enjoyed it even before our debut. We’re all so close as well so being together helps make it easier to have fun.”
Outside of their busy schedule, what do they do in their free time? Kai answered, “We’ve been dorming together for over a year now. It truly feels like home so we don’t call it a ‘dorm’ but ‘our house’. I spend a lot of time with the other members.”
Chanyeol added, “We went to see the movies after our debut. Actually, we have a lot of fun in our house, too. Since we live together, it’s easier to have conversations and play games. You seriously have no idea how fun that can be. We also play traditional games at home, and sometimes play soccer outside. Everyone’s eyes change when the game begins (laughter). They all love sports but Kai is a fanatic so it’s easy to win when you’re on his team. I think Kai’s just lucky.”
The members didn’t forget about their Chinese counterpart, EXO-M. Suho said, “The rehearsal room feels so empty without them. Together, it was always so loud and boisterous. I miss the members… We do send video messages and check up on each other during birthdays, though.”
When asked if they would like to try areas other than singing, Baekhyun said, “I want to try them all. For now, we’re focusing just on the stage, but I’d love to try varieties, dramas, and musicals. As much experience as possible.”
Recently, the boys joined the ‘SM Town Live Concert‘ held in the States, as well as perform at the ‘Dream Concert‘. Suho commented, “‘Dream Concert’ was a stage we’ve always wanted to stand on, and I remember watching ‘Sm Town Live Concert’ before our debut and wondering when we’d be able to stand on it. It was an honor to be able to stand with seniors we respect so much.”
The interview concluded with the members giving out compliments about one another.
Chanyeol, who was assigned D.O., said, “D.O. is really family oriented. He takes care of the members at the dorm and also cooks well. He looks cute, but he’s deep on the inside. He’s good at organizing and picking up after us whenever we mistakes. D.O. is able to catch even the littlest things in the home.”
D.O., who was assigned Kai, said, “Although he’s my dongseng, he’s really cool and sexy to the point where you can’t help but fall in love with him when you watch him performing on stage. His facial expressions are not rookie-like at all. When I ask him questions during dance practice, he doesn’t act tired by it at all and really teaches you step by step.”
Kai, who was assigned Baekhyun, said, “He has two distinctly different charms that contrast so much from his outer appearance. On stage, he’s oozing with charisma, but off stage, he’s cute, fun, and a breath of fresh air. I’m thankful that he always entertains us despite being the hyung.”
Baekhyun, who was assigned Suho, said, “When people think of leaders, they think of intimidating people that round up the group with harsh consequences, but Suho hyung is really peaceful. He pushes for peaceful conversations to solve problems and always buys us delicious things. He’ll even check in with each and every member to see if they have any worries or concerns. Hyung is the ideal everything. Oh yeah, he’s also good at making honey water!”
Suho, who was assigned Sehun, said, “He’s cute with lively eyes. His milky white skin is also pretty. Although he’s shy, he’s the cute and playful maknae of the group. Sehun is also an important member in that he keeps up with information like album sales.”
Sehun, who was assigned Chanyeol, asid, “When you’re by his side, you just start laughing no matter what. He’s the happy virus. His personality is so bright and lively that he’s always full of laughter. Since he’s so tall, he’s also really cool. His thick voice is charming.”
Before the boys get up on stage, they hug each other tightly and shout, “Let’s love!” Suho explained, “Before we get on stage, we say, ‘EXO, let’s love!’ It was made by my suggestion and I mean it so that our members, our fans, our music, and everything can enjoy and love together. Enjoy it with us!”
