This new year is about to start off with a lot of EXO-ment as ‘EXO PLANET #2 – The EXO’luXion! World Tour will be here in Singapore! Brought in by our friends at AC Music Entertainment, its been two long years since the last time EXO brought their world tour, EXOPLANET #1 – The Lost Planet, to Singapore. This month, EXO will be returning to Singapore with their second world tour titled ‘EXO PLANET #2 – The EXO’luXion’. Thus far, the first few concerts in Seoul concert earlier this year have already been a roaring success.
With the upcoming ‘EXO PLANET #2 – The EXO’luXion – in SINGAPORE’, EXO expressed their excitement in meeting and putting up a spectacular performance for their fans. EXO-Ls can expect an amazing show that will be both visually and aurally exciting! In anticipation of this titillating event, we have decided to count down 24 most interesting facts that you might not know about EXO!
Chanyeol used to believe that Santa Claus existed until one christmas whereby his father dressed up as Santa Claus, to have Chanyeol’s sister pull off his beard and revealing that the “Santa Claus” that was in front of them then was actually their father.
(sorry Chanyeol, that’s not the real santa!)
Chanyeol’s sister is actually a news reporter and she was the reporter in charge of breaking the news to world about EXO’s record setting 1 millionth album sale back in 2013.
Sehun is currently wearing lingual braces and because of them, he is unable to drink bubble tea with the bubbles anymore, explaining why he is no longer frequently seen at his favourite bubble tea joint in Apgujeong
Baekhyun has revealed previously in a few interviews, that he moved to the living room in their dorm and out of the room he shared with Sehun and Suho as the room was too messy and dirty for him.
Suho has admitted that he is mainly responsible for the mess in the room he shares with Sehun.
Sehun is afraid to sleep ALONE!!
Kai switches off the notifications for EXO’s group chat and usually checks it only once in a while which has resulted in him missing out on new information sent by the mangers occasionally and having the members worry if he is even alive.
(“Uhm, still alive boys….”)
D.O.has very bad astigmatism.
(“Glasses are not my thing, I prefer bunny ears!”)
Kai used to be very afraid of D.O. when they were trainees but they’re now one of the closest members in the group.
(“Enemies? We are just “friends”^^)
Baekhyun has a corgi called mongryoung.
(OMG Lucky Dog!)
Baekhyun’s piano teacher, Hyunwoo, who is the pianist in Beatles’ Code, revealed that he never expected that Baekhyun would become an idol as he was extremely mischievous.
Xiumin hopes to get a barista license one day.
(“Always good to have another skill just in case this boyband thing doesn’t work out!”)
According to Lay, Xiumin is such a clean-freak that he has 2 vacuum cleaners- one for cleaning the room and dorm and the other for his bed.
Lay learned how to play the piano by himself so he doesn’t know how to read the musical notes and plays the piano mainly by ear.
D.O. knew from a young age that he wanted to be a singer and his parents supported his dream, sending him for vocal lessons.
Baekhyun’s hands are his best features.
(EXO-Ls do you agree?)
Baekhyun revealed that Sehun used to smell of baby powder(though Sehun refuses to acknowledge that he does) and during their trainee period, he would bite Sehun’s butt when he was sleeping.
D.O. is the chef in the dorm but the members say that he hasn’t been able to cook much recently due to his busy and hectic filming schedules.
Xiumin actually has a younger sister and if he were to choose, he wouldn’t pick Sehun as someone to introduce her to but he wouldn’t mind introducing Chen to her.
Lay has revealed that the reason why his waist/hip injury is so severe is due to the fact that as a trainee, in order for him to improve at a much faster rate, he would tie sandbags on his body to allow him to dance more powerfully. As he did this for almost 2 years, his injury just kept getting worse over time.
(“Well. lucky it it paid off!”)
Sehun enjoys sleeping at dawn as he feels there’s this special feeling he gets at dawn.
Chen used to be the worst dancer in EXO but this year, the members noticed that he has been working on his dancing a lot, constantly double checking with the choreographer and the boys all agree that his dancing has improved by leaps and bounds.
(Not sure that was what his group members were hoping for LOL!)
Chen says he got his cheerful personality from his mother.
Chen has the widest vocal range in the group.
(“Yup that’s my real talent guys”!)
