Finally got around to watching the English subbed version of the the recent variety show, Extremely Extraordinary/Extremely Unlike Another, which was uploaded today. Thank you to the lovely individuals that translate EXO-M‘s variety shows for the international fans. I know that some of these fans lose their sleep in making subtitles. I feel like SM Entertainment (SME) should be paying these fans to create subtitles for these shows ’cause a lot of time and effort goes into this and not to mention, many of these fans are helping to promote EXO to the global audience.
Anyhow, this is just space where I will be sharing my thoughts on the variety shows EXO-M/EXO are a part of for this month. I will wait for the English subbed version for each show to be uploaded and offer commentary here. I also have to mention that I like EXO as a whole, but I feel more attached to EXO-M =P I really like all of the members of EXO-M and I guess I have a soft spot for them as they are promoting in China and are part of a new marketing strategy that involves some risks; this strategy, as many of you know, is something that SME has never done before. Furthermore, the members are older in comparison to the members of EXO-K. Since I’m 23 I can actually sense a bit of their mature side.
Moreover, the fact that I have a lot of Chinese friends here, who actually come directly from China for their studies (they are quite open in comparison to the Korean students that come directly from South Korea and that often hang with their own group of people), I automatically feel like paying more attention to EXO-M. The Korean students that have lived abroad for most of their life, though, are pretty down-to-earth and open. I’m just being really honest here. The only Korean friends I even had were back in my high school and they were global nomads like me. I don’t know how many of you are aware of this, but global nomads tend to be extremely open to people of other cultures…like we are one family. So when I see individuals that only hang out with people of their own culture, I feel like they are not taking the opportunity to experience and admire all the unique and different things in life.
Surprisingly, a lot of my Chinese friends that come directly from China have said the same thing and even discussed this with me. So many of them have said, “Most of my life I have been surrounded by my own people and it can get boring. Now that I’m studying abroad, I want to experience another culture and get to know people of all backgrounds. It’s a good thing. I feel like people should learn about others.” I always tell them, “Don’t worry, I feel the same! ^^” On a random note, when I see Chinese students eating Desi food, it brings a smile to my face. They really love my country’s food *cries tears of joy* I made my Changsha friend try jalebi, a Desi sweet dish, and she really liked it ^^ Also, I saw this one really good-looking Chinese dude (proof that there are people that are just as handsome as the celebs. you admire =P) enthusiastically ordering Desi food at university and I thought how it would be like to initiate the conversation while waiting in line to order my food just to know where the person was exactly from or grew up, but then I told myself, “MAYBE NEXT TIME…” xD Well, enough about me and more about EXO-M!
Overall, I’m really happy to see that EXO-M have gained a lot of confidence and are much more comfortable in their recent interviews and variety shows *thumbs up* JJANG! Additionally, I like the fact that I get to see more of their funny side and hear their witty remarks.
EXTREMELY EXTRAORDINARY/EXTREMELY UNLIKE ANOTHER
— EXO-M: “We are one!” MC Stone: “I am two!” MC Aya: “I am three!” Epic! xD
— It’s interesting to see how Kris, Lay, and Chen were the only members to look at both the crowd and the camera when it came to introducing themselves ^^’
— I liked the question about learning or being trained for etiquette and treating fans. The response by EXO-M was that SME trains them and that their manager gives them tips every day. It was intriguing that Tao added, “We ourselves also pay attention to these things (ettiquetes and how to treat fans)” I wonder how they do that? =P
— The MCs are so funny…especially during the scene at 17:00 when MC Aya asks EXO-M how they would react if they saw SJ-M and MC Stone states, “Oppa is very hot” and Kris starts fanning him. Hahaha xD
— MC Aya talking about the song “MAMA”: “I would even shout ‘Baba’” MC Stone: “Nainai (Grandma)” LOL. The MCs are such trolls!
— Kris states that the security person present on the show seems really professional and that he will talk to his manager about him getting an opportunity of being hired by SME. Kris, please tell your manager that I have a degree in business administration, specifically in marketing and management, and I am doing my masters in public relations and advertising and that I could help in promoting or marketing SME? (I know EXO-M Manager Kyun has a degree in economics and finance =P) If not a permanent job, what about an internship? I will forever be grateful…kekekeke xD
— Tao’s reaction to hearing security personnel being hired to protect EXO-M and him not being able to was cute and hilarious.
— MC Stone tricking EXO-M into bowing…hahaha!
— Tao trolling on Kris – yes! Why would Kris ask the fan, Anan, if she likes LuHan when she was holding a sign that had LuHan’s name on it? xD LuHan’s words for Anan were, “Be safe!” Umm, okay. You could have said more, LuLu. If I were him and I had a fan I would have given that fan a hug and asked them questions just to know them better in addition to giving words of appreciation and wishing them well ^^’ Why be so stiff? =P If I met my bias and I heard, “Be safe…,” then in my head I would be saying, “Is that it?” Also, I think fan girls should be cool with K-Pop group members giving hugs to their fans. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I’ve seen other groups do that so I don’t think anyone should get jealous if a fan got a hug from an EXO member. I’m sure all fans would want a hug! =P My friends have received a BIG hug from Sharukh Khan and he is considered the KING of Bollywood. Everyone was cool with it.
— Why did LuHan have to pick on the translator girl, Xiaojie, about her Korean? xD Tao and Kris even trolled on her Korean. Tsk tsk tsk. Poor Xiaojie.
— It’s cute seeing Chen enthusiastically sing “Three Little Bears” while Tao simply gave up xD
— Tao and Kris were able to guess who the fake person was amongst the people that tried to convince them what their profession was. Kris states that his guessing skills comes from having, “sixthsense.” Hahahaha, my mum always talks about having “sixthsense” ^^’
— Duck blood noodle soup…eeeek! I’m not even allowed to eat that xD I don’t think adding sugar to it makes it tastier =P Chen and XiuMin did not seem pleased at the sight of it.
— When Tao and Kris try the dish:
- Tao: It’s very good! *thumbs up* (Tao should definitely speak more English. I heard that he knows a bit of it and I read about this when EXO were having their teaser promotions ^_~ Kris couldn’t stand Tao‘s English, though, and it seemed like he was about to laugh xD)
- Kris: Very, very, very good! *thumbs up* (Hahahaha, his English sounds good here! No ghetto accent!)
— XO Sauce Challenge!
- Chen and XiuMin learning Chinese rap…it seems difficult!
- Aunty Gao’s ballroom dancing was so graceful and the music added a greater effect to it. Lay looked like he really wanted to learn the dance while the rest of the members were just going with the flow. Tao was the first one to volunteer in being Kris’ dance partner (as expected =P). If I were Kris, I wouldn’t have said, “Bring it on!” and hold out my hand to my dance partner in such a threatening gangster-like way. Instead, I would hold out my hand in a more graceful way and ask with a smile and twinkle in my eye, “Shall we dance?” Kris, learn something from this! =P Tao and Kris deciding on who will do the spin…hahaha!
Now we will just have to wait for the second part of the show iA! ^^ The preview for tomorrow’s show Go All Out/Do Your Best has already been uploaded (see here). For now, no comment =P I like how the song, “We Will Rock You,” was used, though ^^’
GO ALL OUT/DO YOUR BEST
— Major LOL at the beginning. It’s as if EXO is taking over the world. So intense =P
— At 6:19, one hear a Sum 41 song…sorry, couldn’t help but notice a band that I once used to listen to in middle-high school xD
— I would have SO lost in the race against the falling dominoes =P The way Lay just plopped onto the mat was hilarious. Dancing Machine Chen Chen won…yayyy! Little Deer/LuLu looked so cute while getting ready to run. Miss China trying to mesmerize them…hahaha. She’s pretty! Dui Zhang trying to mesmerize the audience with a wink…nice try…MAYBE NEXT TIME. Basketball Captain Kris did well in the race, though!
— The balancing on the slide game was rather awkward to watch, but it was funny how Lay managed to still hold onto his balance after sliding downwards…haha.
— Kris’ overconfidence and proudly announcing, “We are ONE!” only to end up falling down the slide as soon as the game started (also, how can one get tired so fast?). Lesson learned: always be humble…never show-off =P
— Cute LuHan scared of heights. It’s okay, I have friends that are afraid of heights too
— LuHan’s amazed expression at 25:07 while watching Tao on the slide…priceless. Tao singing “MAMA” while balancing himself on the slide…epic!
— Tao’s balance lasted for 4 minutes and 24 seconds. AWESOME! *thumbs up*
— Tao’s bluntness about the game being about height and not exerting force. Great, I would have SO lost in this game then =P
— Kris vs. Miss China in the race across the swimming pool… xD The show excluded the part where Kris was acting cool before the race. Everyone singing the wedding song in the background…hahaha. Tao: “With love, don’t forget us your brothers too.” Hahaha.
— LuHan was crazy-fast in the race against the ex-Olympic champion. Can’t believe he beat him. The Pirates of the Caribbean theme playing in the background was funny.
— In deciding which member(s) to punish in the losing team, Lay’s response was, “Can we throw all 5 of them?” This guy seriously loves to troll! Too funny!
— LOL at every member of EXO-M being thrown into the pool…hahahaha.
EXTREMELY EXTRAORDINARY/EXTREMELY UNLIKE ANOTHER
— Kris has made it a routine to wink at every “MAMA” performance =P
— Guinness World Record Keeper, Sir Fu Bo, is very nice to have given the Rubik’s cube with an EXO logo on it to the members of EXO-M. I’m sure LuHan will treasure it! ^^
— There are 10,000 different types of Rubik cubes? Wow!
— LuHan is good at learning the formulas for solving the Rubik’s cube. I tried learning the formula but I forgot =P I think I might want to try again xD
— Sir Fu Bo taught at LuHan’s elementary school? So cool!
— Solving a 3×3 Rubik’s cube with eyes closed? WHOA! How long did it take Sir Fu Bo solve that?
— LuHan seems really fascinated by how fast Sir Fu Bo’s hand movements are in solving the Rubik’s cube with his eyes closed. So cute!
— Kris and Lay tried solving the Rubik’s cube and gave up only after a few seconds (14:36 Gave Up!) xD
— It was pretty cool watching LuHan solve the Rubik’s cube with Sir Fu Bo ^^
— The MCs made Chen and XiuMin speak to Lulu, who came from abroad to study Chinese, just to see their fluency in the Chinese language xD
— I love how EXO-M were dancing/rocking it out when Shi Yang sang “Pretty Pretty.” Hahaha!
— Lulu sang “Zhi Shao Hai You Ni” or “At Least I Still Have You” by Sandy Lam SO well!
— The MCs mentioned how the body becomes energetic after seeing Lay, LuHan, and XiuMin perform the dance to “Phoenix.” So true!
— The floor seemed slippery when Tao was performing wushu, but he still did a superb job!
— Shi Xiaosong performing kung fu was really cool! Wish I knew how to do kung fu now!
— MC Stone tried enacting Harry Potter with the broomstick…hahaha! I never knew that there was such a thing as broomstick kung fu.
— Chen hit Shi Xiaosong on the head with his broomstick by accident and then patted him on the head and gave him a hug. Cute! Chen did a good job at broomstick kung fu.
— Majority of the crowd wanted Dui Zhang Kris to try broomstick kung fu…hahaha! I would have mentioned him too if I were part of the crowd =P He looked very confused in the beginning. I laughed. He wanted to make up for it by stating that he is better at doing a kung fu move called a “carp flip” taught by Tao. He did well at that. Kris is truly funny ^^
— MC Stone asked the audience on who is innocent amongst EXO-M and the audience stated LuHan. Hmm, looking at pre-debut LuHan…hahaha! He has become more angelic-looking now ^^ The MCs really love pulling their legs =P
— EXO-M choosing their ideal types based on the poster boards is really interesting ‘cause it shows a bit of their mentality. For instance, Lay likes girls that stay at home. Kris raised his hand a little too =P I told my Changsha friend, who is not really a big fan of EXO-M but knows quite a bit about them mainly through me and the fact that Lay is from the same hometown as her, about EXO-M’s ideal types and she said, “Their type sounds sooo boring! I do not like it! I would like to have a job if I were married…” Some Pakistani guys are the same when it comes to their ideal type =P
— EXO-M acted very composed when the MCs announced that there is a girl behind each poster board that matches their chosen ideal type.
— Kris’ face at 36:19 after being told that each member should stand in front of the poster board that corresponds to their ideal type was hilarious!
— Lay was very fast in choosing his type, which was “Little Fresh.” He is already clear about the qualities that he is looking for in his ideal type =P Chen immediately stuck to the poster board indicating “Royal Elder Sister” as expected xD Kris took a considerable amount of time choosing. You can see him on the right-hand side looking at each poster board carefully. He seems a bit confused but I suppose he was letting his members decide first ‘cause he is the leader? XiuMin picked his type, which is the sporty type, quite early. Tao analyzed some of the poster boards at first and then knew exactly which type to choose. LuHan, on the other hand, took a bit of time looking around and choosing his type, “Natural Blockhead.” Kris tried to battle it out with XiuMin to stand in front of his poster board and then walked over to Tao’s only to be pushed away by him too. Hahahaha. He then ended up with the “Loli” type, which means girls that look young and like to dress up like princesses xD
— After Kris had no choice but to end up with the “Loli” type, which nobody wanted to choose, he gives the poster board a hug xD This dragon…
— LOL at Chen when he talked about his ideal type and he looked so happy once he brought the girl out from behind the poster board. Hahahaha!
— Lay had a surprised reaction to the little girl, Kitty, with him having the same last two characters of his Chinese. Destiny! The audience is such a tease.
— LuHan’s girl, He Ziiun, was adorable when she mentioned that LuHan was, “Sooo handsome!” and gave a cute expression after that. LuHan should have given the little girl a hug! His reaction to the cute girl’s expressions were epic.
— GuoGuo is sooo awesome! I love this kid! Notice how he snatches the microphone straight out of XiuMin’s hands =P His confidence is really admirable. LOL at XiuMin’s reaction to GuoGuo turning out to be a boy instead of a girl.
— I can’t get over the “romantic” moment between Kris and his little girl, Apple. The music makes the scene more lovey-dovey. It’s just too funny. Kris is such a flirt! =P The girl is beautiful, mA, which I had mentioned in my post EXO-M’s Kris – Ballroom Dancing, Interaction with Kids, and Kung-Fu with Broomsticks about Kris being on this show without even knowing that he told the girl, “I think you are very beautiful” Hahahaha! It’s nice that he hugged the little girl ^^ The MCs just raised the girls’ expectations of finding a prince when she grows up. Wish I was her age again…it’s nice to have dreams like that ‘cause when you grow up…reality shows something else from what we expected or dreamed of. There are too many uncertainties in life. That’s why prayers and having faith are important.
— Tao standing next to the “Home Girl”: “I’m so happy to have a Pikachu standing next to me” xD The little girl exposed his secret about him asking her age. Tao is so cute and entertaining. Kris to Tao: “She doesn’t like you. Go back!” Kris shouldn’t have said that ‘cause what if one day there is a girl that doesn’t like Kris (though, I would think it would be hard to not like him, but everyone has different preferences or sees beauty in distinct ways) and Tao ends up saying, “She doesn’t like you. Go back!”? =P
— XiXi, who stood next to Chen, doesn’t look 12 at all! o.O Wow!
— I really want to meet GuoGuo. He is such a cute and entertaining little kid! Kyeopta! (Sorry, I don’t know what “cute” is in Mandarin =P I should probably search it up. Would anyone like to share? ^^’) The way GuoGuo said, “Kris gege,” makes me want to give the little kid a hug >.< How can Kris gege hide from this adorable kid? =P This kid had such interesting questions. Moreover, I like how Kris goes down on his knees to be at the same eye level as the kids.
— Kris is a nostalgic person. I hate throwing away old items too ‘cause I get attached to them due to the memories xD
— Kris’ mum is from Jiangsu Nanjing and this was his first time visiting the city! He must have felt really excited. I know the feeling since I felt the same when I visited Hong Kong, where my mum spent her childhood, and Beijing, where my dad was born. My mum had so many stories to tell as she showed us around Hong Kong! ^^
— LuHan plans to study a bit after debut? I really respect that. I feel like these guys shouldn’t be denied education. Education is very important. In my country, parents do not like their children to join the entertainment industry until they earn a university degree.
— Lay practices dancing too much, hence the reason for him being skinny.
— Tao lately has witty responses, such as the one to GuoGuo’s question about him ever getting bullied as he is the youngest in EXO-M.
— I loved XiuMin and GuoGuo’s cute poses!
— GuoGou is very patient in teaching Chen a few Chinese idioms.
— The little girls did so well in the “History” dance! ^^’
— I really liked this variety show. There were numerous games and they were all super entertaining! =)
— I have to make a serious comment about the “History” performance at the beginning of this show. The pyramids in the background and “fire” on stage…don’t even get me started on what those symbolize *sigh* The fact that the members of EXO even wear the type of robes that we can see in this performance makes the underlying message pretty obvious. If you do research on the NWO conspiracy and occult symbols in the music industry, then you will know what I’m trying to say. Why would one include those elements when they have absolutely nothing to do with the song in the first place? If you observe carefully, in EXO-K’s “History” there is a line that, when translated to English is, “The day we realize that the sun is one that is big and great.” Didn’t the pharaohs of Egypt used to worship the sun? This is something to think about. I actually do not like seeing occult symbols as it makes me think that something suspicious is going on. A message to fans of entertainment: Do not follow things blindly…always keep an open mind and be aware of particular things around you.
— My response to Kris‘ self-introduction: Dangerous guy…super, super, super, very, very, very dangerous guy. Hahahaha xD Seriously, did Kris and Chanyeol plan on how to introduce themselves? I thought Kris was the humble type o_O What happened to the modest Kris that we saw a few months back in EXO‘s showcase, which I even talked about in the post, Kris’ Modesty vs. Hee Hee’s Self-Praise? =P Kris appears a bit shy after giving the wink and flying kiss ’cause he looks down right away and laughs. I remembered mentioning in this post, EXO’s Kris Infected by the Happy Virus?, that I would laugh really bad if I ever saw Kris give a flying kiss to the fans like Tao did at EXO-M‘s second fan signing event. Awww, Kris you don’t have to do this for your fans. Just do what you feel comfortable in doing and don’t give into so much pressure into doing things that are out of your comfort zone. Respect yourself and do what you feel is right.
— Is Kris the overall leader of EXO or is he the overall leader when the whole group is in China and SuHo is the overall leader when the whole group is in Korea? o_O This dragon…
— Kris seeking revenge after the fans believed that he copied Chanyeol‘s self-introductory lines at the SMTOWN concert in Taiwan two months back, which I mentioned here: EXO’s Kris on Happy Camp and SMTOWN Taiwan (09/06/12) What about the “traveling back and forth between Korea and China,” and “meet our fans in person,” line, Kris? xP ^_~
— Baekhyun looked super, extremely, adorable. I feel like he wore eyeliner just for his fans. Baekhyun…don’t wear eyeliner if it irritates you.
— Seeing Baekhyun‘s reactions, it must have been a challenge for the Korean members to understand what the MCs on the show were saying. I can sense that there is a language barrier. I’m sure that the Chinese members must have informed them about a few things regarding the show prior to participating in it, as LuHan mentioned.
— I liked the live performance of “Two Moons” It seems like the members have improved and Kris doesn’t look as awkward as before.
— Check the following gif. of Kris before performing “Two Moons”:
— Kris, Tao, and Chanyeol like to play exciting and nerve-wrecking games. Tao mentioned the Tower of Terror ride that they went on in Disneyland, L.A. xD
— It didn’t seem like Baekhyun enjoyed getting flicked on the head by the MC, ’cause I can see that he had somewhat of an embarrassed smile =/
— The Ignition Shock game looks like fun. I want to play! *raises hand*
— Chanyeol‘s reaction in the ignition shock game was cute xD The host that went after him completed most of the game. SeHun looked like he wanted to try again ^^’ Lay did an awesome job at the really hard parts and he was so fast at it. Kris acting like the game was very easy when he got through the round single-handedly. That’s ’cause the previous players did most of the work! =P He even trolled on everyone by taking his time in completing the final part. This dragon is cheeky/cunning, I tell you…very cunning xD Nevertheless, he did a good job! =P His hand-eye coordination seems good. He played basketball after all…
— Kris looks nice in white. I look good in white too… =P On a random note, Kris‘ hairstyle here looks like the one he had in his pre-debut “passport” pic. when his hair was black (click here to see) xD
CHINA LOVE BIG SONG
— I liked how there was “blush” edited on LuHan’s cheeks in the introduction xD
— Tao’s introduction: EXO’s romantic panda that likes strolling alone…forever romantic panda =P
— Even though Lay is from Changsha, where spicy food is the city’s specialty, he cannot eat spicy food =(
— Of course, the Korean members would love spicy food!
— And the sentimental moments about their training years are repeated all over again. We understand. Next time, let’s all talk about the present?
— I knew about the length of hours Lay trained for before he even debuted. 10-12 hours a day…that’s crazy!
— Lay states that they are very handsome due to good packaging by the company. Isn’t that I what I stated in one of my previous posts? =P
— It seems as if Tao really loves romantic things. Hahahaha!
— I like how the host refers back to the EXO-M moment on Happy Camp where Kris states that Tao would get a reward for giving him the small betel nut to eat. The reward that Tao received was a bowl of ramen.
— Kris is so proud of Tao’s words of appreciation. He raises his hands to the audience and nods as if stating, “Yes, yes…I know!”
— The part where Kris states, “I’m not playing, I’m going home,” when the host announces that they are going to play ‘Truth or Dare’ has been cut out =P
— The pointers. No comment.
— I love how Lay exposes everything. Thanks for telling the truth that none of the members really like to clean. Of course, if they are busy practicing, they would sometimes need somebody else to clean up the place.
— I like how all of the members, except Tao, point to the host to indicate that he is the most handsome. When some of the members saw Kris point to the host, the others followed suit, it seems.
— LOL at XiuMin poking the host
— Tao picked Kris as the most handsome…OF COURSE. Kris’ ultimate fan is Tao, after all =P Kris is very proud.
— Kris, you are not the boss when the MC is around! xD
— Kris would choose Boazi to be with on a desert island because he is eatable…hahahaha! Smart thinking! =P
— The editors of the show added the Secret Garden theme when LuHan and Lay say they would like to be with one another on a desert island…kekeke
— Lay, “The leader (Kris) is a dragon…he can fly!” Wow…he was not slow in answering this time! =P
— I think LuHan and Kris are the most popular members in EXO-M. Kris is quite popular internationally.
— Tao description of LuHan as “baby face” was cute and LuHan’s reaction upon hearing that was that of a shy child xD
— Like Chen, some of my Chinese friends find Tao’s eyes unique too.
— Tao is trying to remain calm with all the flattering comments. Cute~
— Lay is just hilarious! “Except me, they are all popular among girls!” Says who? =P You are very popular, Lay!
— Lay and LuHan were good at playing guess the word on the board game. I’ve played something similar before
— LuHan’s imitation of Bruce Lee…oh my
— Yayyy for the Super Mario theme playing the background when it’s time for Kris and Chen to play the game
— Kris likes to drink Cola every day. That’s not very healthy!
— The act of proposing was SO obvious! Kris…your mind is not in this world at times! =P MC: “Why?” Kris: “I don’t know.” Haven’t you seen people propose before, Kris?
— Tao’s nerve to cheat…
— Kris has family members in China. Good good. I remember fans getting upset that Kris is all alone because everyone he knows is far away in Canada and that he has no one close to stay in contact with.
— It’s nice that the show gave a brief overview of Chengdu. It’s also funny how music from the K-Drama, City Hunter, was used in the background xD
— I was highly intrigued by the face-changing mask performance, also known as Bian Lian, when I watched this. It inspired me to learn more about it and even write a post on it (Bian Lian – The Ancient Chinese Art of Face Mask Changing)!
— MC: “TAO! WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW!?” Hahahahahaha!
— During the recording for the show, Kris relied on fans for the answer as to how many times face-changing occurs in Bian Lian. The fans gave him the wrong answer and he confidently wrote down the answer. When he found out that the answer that he wrote down was wrong, he turned his head other way with an embarrassed smile xD
— The members’ surprised expression while watching the Bian Lian performance is priceless!
— Sugar figurines looks really awesome! I’m learning quite a big about Chengdu by just watching this show. I like!
— The MC keeps picking on Tao for cheating…kekeke!
— I knew that the answer for the ingredient used in making sugar figurines is corn sugar!
— Chen and XiuMin must be enjoying their time in China as they get to learn and see so many different things about the country. I know that I would be super excited!
— I’ve done painting before and have used acrylic, oil, and watercolor paints. Hence, I knew it would be acrylic paint that was used for the bronze man.
— Kris bluffing when the MC asks him why he chose the answer as acrylic paint…hahaha!
— Everyone’s first impression of Kris is that he is tall and handsome =P My first impression was that he was “mysterious” and “cool” xD
— Tao’s requested the background music to be “Meet” to describe the first time he met Kris. Oh my… xD
— Kris and Tao…best friends/brothers forever! ^^’ One can truly see this, especially how they are always out and about together since their pre-debut days and how Tao is always thankful towards Kris. There is a photo that shows a tear sliding down Kris‘ face when hearing Tao‘s words of gratitude for him.
— It seems like being part of EXO means everything to Tao. Oh, Tao…it’s great that you are part of EXO, but there is more to life too. Don’t always be led by your passion…
— Next time, Kris and Tao should sing a ballad with the other four members!
CHINA LOVE BIG SONG
— “History” is the only song by EXO that I have learned how to dance to =P
— Tao was really pumped up to perform wushu xD
— The drawing game is one way for the members of EXO-M to demonstrate their drawing skills =P
— Tao: “I have no confidence of the leader.” I guess he knows how Kris’ drawing skills are like…hahaha!
— Kris: “I can’t write nicely, but this doesn’t mean that I can’t draw nicely.” Let’s see =P
— Why does Tao keep cheating? xD The MC keeps picking on him about it too.
— I would have never of been able to guess that Kris’ drawing was that of rhinoceros. I would have thought that it was a rabbit like Lay.
— What’s with the crazy background music? Hahahaha! It makes me laugh even more in comparison to watching EXO-M draw xD
— Tao: “Kangaroo” xD From a rhinoceros to a bunny rabbit and chicken and then kangaroo. Oh my…
— Kris’ drawing does look more like a donkey. I like how music from Super Mario is playing in the background as he holds his drawing with a big smile.
— It’s strange how Tao’s initial answer for Kris’ drawing is the assigned drawing for the next round o.O
— Lay’s drawings are nice
— Tao’s reaction to XiuMin’s drawing: “Pfff” xD
— Kris looked SO nervous…as if this game meant his whole life
— Tao’s drawing looks more like an alien duck
— Kris sounds like he was singing when he kept repeating, “Wait, wait, wait…”
— Kris got the right answer. The pouch on the kangaroo does kind of look like a crescent moon, though.
— No comment about the next drawing… How can a show ask them such questions? xD
— A UFO…epic! I made a UFO out of cardboard once. Chen’s drawing is cute!
— Kris’ UFO drawing is not that bad
— LuHan and Kris were so confident in their answer until the MC announced what the drawing was initially meant to be. Hahahaha!
— I wonder if EXO-M really look forward to eating on shows. I’m sure they do since they probably don’t have breakfast when they have a busy schedule.
— I would probably try the crispy fish out of the 6 Chengdu delicacies that had been prepared by the chef =P
— Indecisive Kris…
— Lay got the right answer. I think it’s hard to remember the prices of food that one hasn’t eaten. He knows quite a bit about the prices of different dishes xD
— The MC tortures the other members by making them smell the food
— Lay is very nice for letting the other members try the dish
— Kris wants to try the food for $5000. Sure… He keeps bribing Lay =P
— Tao’s reaction and expression upon hearing that Lay would let him try the dish is like that of a child.
— LuHan looked incredibly hungry while watching the other members eat…poor guy. He looks super excited when he is about to get the question right in the next round, though.
— I don’t know why I had to start giggling when it was time to describe Kris. “Anime-like leader aura” xD
— And the personal speech begins. Kris says that he can’t say cheesy lines…but we all know that he does! =P
— It’s a bit alarming…people work hard for everyone, but why can’t people work hard for God? In the end, whatever you do is not going to be discussed between you and people. In the end, it’s going to be discussed between you and God.
— The moment when the members hug the panda mascot and receive their figurine is adorable!
— Lay’s twirl and heart! Awesome!!!
— Kung Fu Panda meets the panda mascot…kekeke!
