As everyone knows, 2013 had become EXO’s year. They dominated the Kpop scene and stole the hearts of many. With numerous comebacks, MVs, a concert, and shows, EXO has proven themselves as one of the most popular Kpop group in Korea. EXO has broken the record of selling over 1 million albums in 12 years!
Now, they are being noticed by the world.
Websites like Fuse and Billboard have named EXO one of the rookies to look out for in 2014. As I fan that has been there since the beginning, I can’t to feel so proud of my boys. They worked hard for their debut, took a year preparing for a comeback, dealt with crazy fans, and worked their butts off in 2013. They were nominated for the MTV EMA’s, won 3 daesangs, and received multiple Triple Crown’s. The proudest moment I felt was at the MTV EMA’s. Even though they didn’t win the Worldwide Act, Kpop fans from around the world came together to tweet about EXO. They ended up winning against Beliebers and Directioners with around 32,000 tweets per minute. Maybe it was because I participated in it, but it made me see how strong the Kpop community actually is.
But that’s not the end. Late last year EXO aired their new reality show called “EXO’s Showtime!”. Showtime showed many aspects we never saw from EXO before. It showed how EXO was really like and we got to see how they got along. We got to see how much EXO really liked to eat, how much they played, how much a diva Tao is, and how loud and fun the ‘beagle line’ is. Also in addition to that, Chanyeol has been in Micronesia chopping trees and lighting fires (Kind of), D.O is close to making his acting debut in the upcoming movie “Cart”, and Suho has participated in being a voice actor in the movie “Saving Santa”. (Plus much more.)
Even my mom fell for them..Their charms and talents are undeniable.
As fans, it’s time to spread the word about EXO! EXO saranghaja!
ONE MORE!!! CONGRATS TO EXO FOR WINNING THE DISK DAESANG AND BONSANG!!
Oh jeez…the sasaengs strike yet again.
Or saeseng more specifically. One special little snowflake, decided it was time to threaten Korea’s hottest idol group, EXO. She goes by the name Kim Yeoshin. Now, most EXOtics would have already have heard this news, but I just have to get this out. (Like most saeseng happenings.) Kim Yeoshin is a sasaeng known for her over the top acts. She poisoned B.A.P’s Himchan, and attempted to poison Infinite’s L and Dongwoo, and B1A4’s Baro…etc (You get the gist.) Now rumor has it, she’s planning to kill an idol in 2014. And netizens are saying that she has her eyes set on EXO’s maknae, Sehun.
Now this is really unsettling for me. Like seriously. I’m sitting in my Spanish class while writing this. I can’t help to feel this squirming feeling at the pit of my stomach. I WAS going to write about it later, but here I am now.
Number 1, Sehun is one of my biases. I am really worried for him. (And EXO in general) Lately, they have been traveling back and forth between countries and it is World War III at the airports. On top of that, this rumor had to surface and I can’t help but to have a thousand thoughts running through my head. According to an article, I’ll link it below, they think she either might be using Sehun as a stepping stone to reach another member, or trying to murder him. Why Sehun of all people? He had been under fire not long ago and now this? I’m really scared for him. He’s still young and he’s already receiving so much pressure. I’m not sure what he will do next. All I wish is for EXO to be healthy and well. It isn’t even that much to ask for.Thing is, the Korean police can’t do anything about this. (Which makes me very mad.) The police cannot press charges against a minor. (Idk if she is or not) She should be arrested or at the very least put on some kind of restraint. She has committed so many acts that can hurt the idols who are people nonetheless. Instead of petitioning for EXO to be exempt from military service, we should petition to stop the sasaengs acts. I believe this all we can do to help our idols.
