EXO at SBS Gayo Daejun 2012

It has been one year since the last Gayo Daejun, in which Luhan, Kai, Tao, and Chen of EXO had performed on stage for, took place.
Let me just mention how awesome this year’s S.M. the Performance on Gayo Daejun is. I can feel the energy with these kind of collaborations. I noticed that the music that plays when Eunhyuk starts dancing is from Metallica xD I used to be a huge fan of the heavy-metal band so it was easy for me recognize it. The facial expressions on everyone makes me laugh =P Other than that, I like how there’s a full moon Taemin‘s leather jacket.
Here is the audio for the song, Spectrum, by S.M. the Performance. I love it. It has a very futuristic sound, kind of like music from the Japanese group, Perfume, that I listen to. UPDATE (01/01/2013): The original version of Spectrum is by Zedd ft. Matthew Koma (click here to see).
Kris at SBS Gayo Daejun 2012
The picture on he right-hand side is a nice candid shot of Kris in black attire while snow is falling. His white bow tie also matches the snow. It’s beautiful. I would love to have a picture like this in the snow. Fans take such amazing photos.
In this picture, it looks like Kris is thinking very deeply. NOT =P It’s how Penn Badgley, who played Dan Humphrey and later turned out to be Gossip Girl (sorry, if I have spoiled the story for those that haven’t finished watching Gossip Girl yet…I got bored of the series somewhere in the middle of Season 3. My boredom from the TV series is what also led me into East Asian Entertainment where dramas have family values and morals, something that we can relate to), said that, whenever a photo of him going out to get breakfast appears online, he gets surprised by the instant feedback from fans, such as, “He looks so tired,” or, “He looks sad.”
Badgley’s response to such comments is something similar to, “I’m not tired or sad. I was only getting breakfast!” Hahaha! It reminds me of how we fans often make assumptions about how our biases must be feeling by simply observing their facial expressions through their pictures. Maybe in our bias’ head, while he reads similar comments, he is thinking, “No! I wasn’t tired or sad. I was just walking towards the car!” =P
Dui Zhang taking care of Sehun aka the maknae
While watching the video of EXO walking on the Red Carpet, I was wondering, is it common in South Korea for people to say, “You speak handsomly”? xD I’ve only heard the phrase, “You speak beautifully.”
I also noticed that the brotherly actions between Sehun-ah and Kris have increased. Looks like Dui Zhang is taking care of the maknae now! I remember stating that the members of EXO should pay a bit more attention to Sehun-ah. In my opinion, Sehun-ah looks lost half-the-time, as if his mind is in la-la land. I don’t know why I get this impression of him. It seems as though he is in his own little world. Sometimes I picture him imagining himself running through a field of flowers and butterflies xD
EXO‘s live performance, though short, was pretty good. EXO-M sang in Korean as well.

Other than that, I have to laugh at the fact that Chanyeol was right next to Sandara Park aka Dara of 2NE1 at the event! As soon as I saw a picture of Chanyeol and Dara standing near each other, I thought, “How does it feel to stand next to your ultimate bias?” =P Chanyeol is known to be a huge fan of Dara since pre-debut and I could just imagine how much he probably wanted to jump in the air with joy at that moment.
After stumbling upon these gifs., one can notice what Suho, Kris, and Chanyeol may have been discussing. The way they looked at one another and whispered is something I’ve seen guys their age do. Kris‘ smile kind of gives it away that he knows that his best friend/twin brother, Chanyeol, is a fanboy of 2NE1, especially Dara. The same goes for Suho‘s “guardian angel” smile. Hahaha! Guys will be guys. I’m pretty sure that huge gossip session takes place when these guys are together. I’m also sure that the question, “So, who do you like from this girl group?” has been raised as well.
There were quite a few other funny moments including one in which Chanyoel, Kris and Suho were “dancing.” Hahahaha! xD The only member missing was Chen Chen the Dancing Machine =P Awkward turtle moments. I didn’t expect Kris to be like this when I saw a pre-debut video of EXO in which he was rapping to one of Drake’s song in front of his instructor. He looked very comfortable at that time. Kris can be a really awkward person, but it’s okay. It makes him look less intimidating. ^^
On a random note, I was watching a video of EXO greeting fans at SMTOWN Singapore, and I noticed that D.O. is pretty good at speaking in English. If he keeps practicing, I’m sure that he would be able to learn the language very fast. He is quite talented.
I also saw Tao‘s update on Weibo that said, “Every human being is equal,” in regards to an article that he had read online. I agree! Everyone should treat others the way that they would like to be treated. It’s nice to know that the members of EXO read the news.
Baekhyun teasing the fans

I hope EXO has a variety show in 2013. It would be interesting to see how they are really like in their more relaxed state. I think Baekhyun would be excellent on such shows. For some reason, I picture Kris showing off his red dragon, Ace, and green dinosaur plushie to the camera person and saying, “These are my babies!” *picks up Ace* “Say ‘Hi’ to the fans, Ace!” *Kris changes his voice to make himself sound cute* “Hello everyone! I’m Ace of EXO-M. I love Appa very much. He is the best! We are one!” =P I should write a script xD
Kris thinking, “I should have brought Ace along.” =P
The New Year is just a day away!
P.S. I’m trying to find an audio file of the song Feels Good by a Korean hip-hop duo called Geeks. I can’t find it anywhere on the Internet -_- I heard a bit of the song in a fan-made video two days back and I’ve been searching for the title of the song since then. One of the rappers from the duo sounds exactly like G-Dragon! When I found out the title of the song and the name of the artists today, there is no audio file for it online =P
