Hi this is @humming-yay translator of ryoosukeyamada fansub
and I was fortunate enough to go to the DEAR 2016-2017 Tokyo Dome concert on
the 1st on Jan the 12:00 afternoon one (it was my first time
attending a Johnny’s concert!) :)
I’ll start off with buying the goods, I arrived in Tokyo 31st
of December around 3pm and I planned to go to Tokyo Dome to buy the goods on
the 31st around 7pm to just buy the goods so I don’t have to go
there really early on the day of the concert and worry if I can line up and buy
the goods on time before the concert. And also to scope the place out to figure
out a meeting place with my friend. If you’ve been checking twitter you know
how ridiculous the lines were that day it was like 8 hours long during the
morning and midday. So I felt really unsure if I was able to buy them that day.
I got to Tokyo Dome and there were many JE fans (Because of the countdown
concert) There was a guy pointing out the end of the line so I went there and
ended up only lining up for 30mins! (but the group poster was sold out) It was
because it was during the DEAR concert so there weren’t as many people! So a
tip is to line up for goods during the concert the day before :D After the DEAR
concert ended (around 7:40) heaps of people came out of the dome and
the line was super long again.
*** This part isn’t really related to the concert just
personal experience so skip it if you want to ***
Also this was my first time going to a Johnny’s concert so I
had no idea how the system worked to buy the goods. The staff were saying on
their megaphones that it was divided into 3 sections. I was like what 3
sections??? Do you get your goods in one line and pay in the other?? I just
started lining up and asked the girl in front of me who was holding some uchiwa’s
‘can you buy the goods here?’ (In Japanese ofc) She’s like ‘Yes, yes you can
buy the goods here’ But by the tone of the voice she was making fun of me :( Afterwards I found out after asking mulitple staff that the goods were divided into 3 sections depending on the items, one section sold some of the DEAR goods, one section just sold the charater key rings and photos and one section sold the count down uchiwas. Obviously that girl knew about this since she was holding the uchiwa’s but didn’t bother telling me T.T
friend (who’s been a JUMP fan for a long time and have attended a concert before) also
said that Japanese JE fans have a bad vibe and I do agree :l When I went to
Harajuku after the concert there were heaps of JUMP fans who also went to the
concert and I overheard one say ‘Hey that’s the tobiko that pushed me at the
concert’ Yeah idk why they’re so mean to each other D: (I’m just glad the
international fandom is different)
Anyway the day of the concert came and I met up with my
friend at McDonalds at 10:30 we chatted, made our way to the dome, took photos
put the DEAR tattoos on and lined up to go in. The concert starts at 12:00 but
you can go in from 10:00, we went in at like 11:40. Our seats were in the
middle section of the stands. The concert started a bit after 12:00. The opening video went
on and fans screamed when their bias was on, and then JUMP appeared on the main
stage starting off singing ‘Masquerade’
The set list was:
Run de Boo
VIVA 9’s soul
Come On A My House
We are Otokonoko!
Konya anata wo kudokimasu
Ai no shubiduba
Boku to Keito
Your Seed (Rock version)
Give Me Love
Ride with me -2016-
Kira kira hikare
Asu e no yell
Baby I love you
Aisureba motto happy life
In sugirusetsunasa the water works looked amazing and
Inochan had his white hood up and looked so cute. Ganbaretsugo was one of the
best parts of the concert because of their bunny costume!!!! It’s my favourite
costume out of all JUMP costume’s so I’m so glad to be able to see it again and
live!! And also they were holding bazookas, during the concert I had no idea
what came out of them but I checked twitter later and they were little bunny
plushies with their signtures on them!!
We are otokonoko was great too I love the song and they each
had tamborines tapping each other on their butt and stuff, it was really cute.
Konya anata wo kudokimasu was really funny, the animation playing on the main
stage was really tacky and funny (like a women turning into a sponge etc) and
Ino-chan hugged himself in the part were he sings ‘Dakishimeru~’ For Maji
Sunshine they were on the trolleys going around the dome with gold sparkly
confetti coming down and every one in the audience was dancing.
Also there was a part were Yuto
was holding a selfie-cam and all the JUMP members were in the shot and it
looked really cute >< Near the end
Takaki sang impersonating Kimpachi sensei and then Dai-chan got forced to sing
while impersonating him by the members and failed miserably. He felt embarrassed
and posed at the end showing his fist with the DEAR tattoo on it and the camera took a close-up of him on the main screen.
Personally the really best part of the concert was the MC!!
I was so surprised how good JUMP was talking in real life the conversation went
on so smoothly and it was hilarious, it felt like I was watching one of their TV
shows but better! They were teasing Hikaru about his dumbness, he coundn’t say
the 9x9 timetable Yabu asked what’s 7x8 he answered 52 (not sure of exact
numbers but something along those lines). He blamed School Kakumei for
revealing his dumbness. Also there was a big yabuhika moment where they got
into a fight and hika went to resolve it by going to kiss yabu but yabu
rejected. Also yabu said he only slept for 2 hours and when he woke up his face
was really bloated looking like Anpanman. Hika said during Fantastic Time in
the part were Yabuhika crouch down on their knees Hika laughed so hard because
Yabu’s face looked so different.
And then Chinen cutely suggested that if we all sucked in
our breath at the same time facing upwards we might deflate the ceiling of the
Tokyo dome and it might fall. And then dai-chan said ‘if it does fall please
protect yourselves with ur uchiwa’ and Yabu was like ‘No we’ll go and protect
them’ and the whole dome was like ‘Fuu~~’. The members were like wow Yabu you’ve
changed this year and Dai-chan said, ‘Did you change to a new face?’ （え、顔変えたのかな？）following on from the Anpanman joke >< We
sucked in our breath on the count of 3 2 1 and obviously nothing happened as
they quickly pointed out. Then they went on to promote their upcoming movies. Dai-chan
talked about ‘Kodomo Tsukai’ and Yuto talked about ‘BokuGoha’ and Yama talked
about ‘HagaRen’. He said the poster was released on that day in the morning and
he asked the audience who’s seen it already and a lot of people put their hand
up (including me :)) The
other members haven’t seen the posters yet so they asked Yama to recreate it
and Yama made a weird-serious face and the others were like what?? He’s like
I’m just standing and there’s my brother who’s really big behind me. Then Yuto
went behind Yama to be Al from the movie and Yama ducked to his knees to become
really small >< Chinen promoted his
movie ‘Shinobi no kuni’ and it was Inoo’s turn to promote his and Hika was like
‘Momo onna’ (peach girl in Japanese) and Inoo was like yes peach girl. He says
he gets really embarrassed remembering the filming and all the kyun kyun stuff
he did and Hika was like ‘yeah I wore really long hair and my heart was
skipping’ Then everyone realised he was talking about cross-dressing as
Yamamoto Mizuki and Hika was like ‘I’m actually dressed up as a boy now’ Then
Yuto said ‘You got addicted to it (dressing up as Yamamoto Mizuki) after
Itajyan’ They also talked about the count down concert and Keito singing with
his Dad, they were like you copied your Dad with tying you hair up or your dad
copied you :P
The MC ended and they went back to singing starting off with ‘My
Girl’, Ariyama’s dancing and singing was beautiful. For ChikuTaku it started
off with the spotlight on Inoo and he played a beautiful piano solo and then
the spotlight went to Yama and he sang his solo beautifully then to Yabu. Then all the lights came on and the whole JUMP band joined and played. For ‘Your Seed’
the JUMP band also played and it was a new rock version and Dai-chan was
rapping and it sounded so unfamiliar to the original song I had no idea what he
was saying but apparently when I checked twitter it’s completely new (not 100%
sure on this info) There was fire blasting during the song and you could really
feel the heat from it even from the seats! For Mr Flawless they came on the
trolleys and were saying ‘who will it be tonight?’ I had no idea what they were
talking about and then Yabu was like STOP and they went off their trolleys and
they each gave a bouquet of roses to a fan. One of the fans had a uchiwa that
said Dear Yabu… something something (didn’t have time to read it all but it was
some message to him) and yabu gave the bouqet to her. Yuto gave it to a girl
holding his uchiwa and Takaki threw it backwards to the audience wedding style.
(The girls were really vicious in fighting and getting the bouquet). During
school girl the members linked hands to make a circle except for Yama who was
in the middle and covered his eyed with his hands. The members skipped around
him in time with the song and Yama had to guess at the end who was behind him.
He said ‘Yabu!’ but it was actually Yuto behind him J Yama covering his eyes looked
really cute and the other members happily going around in circles looked really
cute too >< They ended the concert with DEAR and afterwards Yama leaded saying their thank you’s and that JUMP’s New Year’s Resolution will be to become very close to thier fans. (Pls do esp for us int fans ><) Hika yelled at the end 9x9 is 81! The members were
like wow you remembered one thing right. :P
After they went back backstage the fans calling for an
encore started. This was a real struggle. Half the people were saying Jump!
Jump! And the other half were saying Encore! Encore! My friend and I really
didn’t know which one to say and it was a mess but Jump quickly came back on
again on the trolley with thier con t-shirts and sang Baby I Love You. Afterwards
in Aisureba Motto the part were they sing ‘Gyu gyu gyu~’ Dai-chan was squeezing
Ino-chan’s butt :P
Also they threw sign balls during the encore. At the part were Yama asks for thier name and the audience says Hey! Say! JUMP
the sparkly concert tape came out and everyone reached out thier hands to grab
them, unfortunately if your at the back you can’t get them. The front bit of my
section were able to get tape but I didn’t get any bc I was in the middle ^^;
But after I went out of the dome I saw two fans holding out signs that said ‘Please
share some tape’ So if your really desperate to get some prepare a sign or
bring a notebook to write ‘銀テープください’ (please give me sparkly tape)
- JUMP in real life was exactly the same as they
seem on TV :)
- the concert was different from what I expected,
it was during the day so the dome was really bright since the ceiling has holes
and the scenery was not what I was used to seeing in DVDs since it wasn’t dark.
(I thought there would be some way to make it dark but apparently not lol JUMP
talked about it during the MC).
- They’re member ai is so strong and they’re so cute,
from a far they looked like girls!
- The concert feels like a dream I can’t believe I
got to see them in real life and realise that they’re actually real and human!
- The concert was really fun I want to say thank
you so much to Hey! Say! JUMP for the great time and the hard effort they put
If you have any other questions feel free to ask me and I
will try to answer them as best as possible! Sorry my con report isn’t as
detailed I’m writing this on the 5th of Jan after I came back from
Japan since I was really busy ^^; Here are more photos I took :)
The Give Me Love tunnel!
I saw a lot of
fans have these colourful clear bags (you can buy these from WEGO) and put
thier bias’s shop photos, pictures of members with snapchat/snow filters and
other little pieces relating to the member :) I thought was a really cute and
smart idea :D Also heaps of fans had cute ribbons in thier hair and the colour
of the ribbon corresponding to thier bias :)
One final tip is that there is a certain size limit for uchiwas!
it has to be less than 28.5 x 29.5 cm, there is a size fitting thing at the
ticket place to check if your uchiwa isnt too big. Also this is not an offical
rule but around je fans it’s accepted that you can’t use holo paper/sticker on
your ucihwa, apparently they reflect really strongly on other people (namely
the idols) eyes.

You may have recently heard the name “Lay” or “Zhang Yixing” sounding at your ear and you may be curious who is guy named Lay? If you want to find out more about him, just read the compilations below ^^ Hope they will provide you with satisfactory answers~
Lay’s chinese name is Zhang Yixing, he was born on 7 October 1991 in Changsha, a city in Hunan province in China. He is a Chinese member of EXO/EXO-M ^^ The below compilation has been split into 6 parts: Stage, Talent, Thanks To, Message, Variety, Behind-the-scenes~
P.S: The recommendations below are not the full compilation, please pardon if anything is missed out. Also, we are unable to find the original link of some fancams so we have used the links from “张艺兴视频博”, “Bright_Star张艺兴资源博” as well as other reuploaders, we hope that the owners will understand >< And also thank you to these 2 fanbases ^^
*The below compilation is updated as of 24 June 2014 ^^
As the group’s main dancer and sub-vocalist, the Yixing onstage, embodies confidence in every move, and every song is sung with deep overflowing feeling. Time has allowed Yixing’s onstage performance to become increasingly mature and natural, but it has not decreased the passion and dedication Yixing has for the stage.
In 26 December 2010, Yixing revealed his identity as a trainee to participate in the company seniors’, SHINee’s 1st Concert in Tokyo, as a dance replacement for Jonghyun who was injured at that time. The first time standing on such a huge stage, he was humble and a little shy.

“Firstly, thank you to my mother. On this journey, my mum really gave up alot, she kept on cheering for me and encouraging me. It has been hard on you. And the one who has always treated me very well, the dad who taught me how to sing. Even though I may not sing as well as you do, but I will work hard. Thank you grandfather and grandmother, taking care of me since young, until now. Because you guys are teachers, so I was able to grow up in the best environment. I am very sorry I am unable to be by your side now. I hope that you guys stay healthy and I also hope that I will be able to bring joy to the both of you. To the members who are just like family, thank you ♥ Thank you teacher Lee Soo Man, CEO Kim Young Min, Director Nam So Young, Director Kyle Jeong, Director Han Se Min, Director Yoo Young Jin and all the staff at SM Entertainment. Because of them, we are able to showcase the best stage for everyone, especially since the preparations behind the scenes are complicated. Because of us, they need one day or even a few months to prepare, but they still do so silently. I am extremely grateful. For being able to enter SM Entertainment I need to thank Yu Eun noona, Ah Reum noona, Hee Jun noona, Lee Jeung Ah noona for training me for 4 years. And also to all the teachers who taught me during this period, Jin Young hyung, Jae Won hyung, Sang Hoon hyung, Ku Young hyung, Hyo Jae hyung, thank you. Kyu Young hyung, Jae Won hyung, who taught me even past midnight, till daybreak. Also thank you to all our manager hyungs and noonas, Min Uk hyung, Yong Min hyung, Ah Reum noon, Hyun Kyun hyung. Jae Hyeok hyung, Ji Hun hyung, Seung Hwan hyung, Dal Young hyung. Especially Ah Reum noona, who took alot of care of me when I first joined the company. At that time I didn’t know Korean at all, was not able to talk to anyone, thank you for taking care of me. There are times where I would be disobedient, but you would teach me patiently, thank you. And also, thank you to my heroes~ Especially to the big gods who have taken care of everything~ It has been hard on you for these one year. And also to my Xingmi who has accompanied me for 8 years already. If you guys aren’t hereos, then I dare ask, who else can be called hereos?!! i am an ordinary person but I have a special job. But the support, love and care you guys have for me, has made this a warm journey for me. And also thank you for everything you guys have done for me, I remember everything and put them all in my heart, so thank you.

Lastly, thank you to my friends, everyone in class 0315, class 0406 and class 0711, hope that everyone will soar to greater heights with their studies. And also thank you to Kang XK, for always cheering me on. For giving me all the help while I was in Korea, you are the best. Always exploring and discussing with me about composition. Wait for me to come back, and remember to supplement my knowledge on music theory– additionally, thank you Hunan Normal University High School, Teacher Yang, Teacher Zheng, Teacher Li, Teacher Xiong, Principal Chang, Head Teacher Chen, for giving me all the help while I was in school. I would also like to thank my alma mater~ In this new year, let’s work hard~ I love you guys, thank you everyone. Grateful, overwhelmed, touched and thankful~”

Or I can say, it is because of the noonas who have helped us in our training from the first day we stepped into the company, and then our teachers and lastly Teacher Lee Soo Man who built us together and pushed us out or also CEO Kim. Lastly, our members, every member has different personalities, every member tried hard to understand each other and to accept each other, and finally to after we debuted, all the love that the fans have given us, and also during interviews, all the reporters are very friendly to us, and then also to the composers, they might not be able to feel the glory of being on stage, despite this they continue to help us alot backstage, and to the stylists who help us with our clothes, and all the other staff etc, I feel that we are very lucky to be able to meet so many good people, people who are able to help us.” ^^

8 October 2012, after finishing his birthday event, yixing left a long message on the official website to express his feelings ^^
To my dear fans~ When you guys see this message~ My birthday would have been over already ^_^
Firstly, thank you for this special birthday celebration, allowing me to feel very lucky and very memorable, you have worked hard everyone.
You guys have quietly done a lot for me, I know, and I am very thankful to you all.
What I can do for you is not enough, not at all, or I can even say, nothing at all.
But, I don’t know why I am able to receive so much love. I try to do what I have promised, no matter what happens, to always smile for you all to see, because you guys like seeing me smile.
Seeing the LED boards that you have made for me, the birthday surprise and celebration, the charity work, raising the huge lightboards for me no matter how tired your hands or how much your shoulders ache, in order to see me, you climbed mountains and forged rivers, gathering together from all over the world to see me, but sometimes you couldn’t even see my face.
I held back my tears, to face you guys with a smile, but I really felt apologetic, but there is also nothing I can do. To the shouts and cheers of my name, I can only reply with a smile, I can only stand there and bow at you guys a few seconds longer to thank you all.
What I can do for you would be to always stand on stage and always perform for you all, and show you my happy smile, and read all the letters that you guys write for me. Everyone is very considerate and is very concerned about my health, making me feel very warm.
And I have also realised that everyone’s writing is very good, so just take this as a reply to everyone who loves me~
On this birthday I am especially thankful to my mother, because on this day she labouriously brought me to this world, and also took care of me for so long, thank you mum!
On this birthday I am especially thankful to my Xingmi, because you have allowed an ordinary child’s dream to receive acknowledgement and support. Because you have allowed an ordinary me, this me who is not outstanding at all, to become special. No matter how many months, how many years, or even an entire lifetime, the gratitude in my heart will never change.
Because of your love, I am then able to have a different birthday, a birthday that is truly amazing. It is you guys who have given me a different life, thank you, I love you!
And it’s still the same line: I am willing to give you guys my all, you are the biggest and strongest source of motivation for me to continue walking on.
1 January 2013, in the advent of the New Year, Yixing gave everyone his New Year wishes on the official website ^^

To all the fans worldwide who have supported EXO, you have worked hard.

Now the journey has begun. We will strive hard, not forgetting our initial feelings. At the same time, thank you for your constant support and care. I hope that we will be able to be together forever.

“It has been a touching National Day. On this day, my heroes and the fans of EXO-M sang a birthday song to celebrate for me, I feel really blessed! But please take care of your safety, take care of your health and don’t tire yourself out! I still have a lot of things to say! Please wait for my official fanboard message!
7 October 2013, after celebrating his 22nd birthday, Yixing left a 1764 word message on the official site, causing fans to be more touched than they already are:
There are only 365 days in a year, and at a slow pace of 24 hours in a day, one and a half years have passed~ In this one and a half years, there have been really many surprises, too many touching incidents, too much sadness, and too many things to be proud of.
Every time my birthday comes round, it is also a platform for me to talk to you guys. For this birthday message I would like to share my heartfelt thoughts with you guys, will that be alright? ^^
When I was studying, I have never once thought that I would stand on the world’s stage, singing for every one of my supporters, it was perhaps once a dream.
I only hoped that the songs that I’ve composed by myself would get the approval of everyone, or perhaps only using my ability to do stuff in the music industry.
However the dream that I once had, has now been realised thanks to SM Entertainment, every one of you, as well as all those who have helped me along in this journey!
But I’m still a little lost, at a loss at what I’m supposed to do?
I may perhaps still be that little kid who hasn’t grown up, but my job has given me a sense of responsibility, making me grow up and continue walking down this path! In this journey, I’ve slowly come to realise how I’ve changed. And this change may be good and may be bad. Actually, it’s like what I said before: I have a very special job.
I want to be like everyone, what I want is simply what everyone wants, and it’s no different from any other ordinary person. During this period of time, even though I’ve gotten some recognition, but I’ve yet to feel satisfied! I will never give up! I want to do my very best! I want to tell all those who are supporting me, I will do everything in the best of my ability to never ever let you guys down!
Maybe it’s because I’m thinking this way that has caused me to always be in my own world, as if there is no one who can properly understand me. My friends cheer me on over the telephone and whenever I think of every one of my heroes who are supporting me, I truly feel very blessed, and that I should be satisfied. But if I do not achieve perfection, will you guys continue to support me?
I always use this to encourage myself: “My dream is actually not that far, I only need to work hard to fulfill it. Even though I may neglect the scenery in my journey, but I can always see the rainbow in the distance!” Do you guys think this is correct?
Behind the scenes of the seemingly simple birthday support, how much effort did you all put in? And the sweat that have dripped onto every corner of the earth. You all prepared a short surprise for me, but you needed to spend one year of planning, one month of preparations, one day of anticipation. I have truly felt all the hard work you’ve put in. You guys have really worked hard, and have been exhausted, thank you.
Actually, I love to see the lightboards that you guys hold up, love to hear the screams from you guys. But I see you guys fall asleep due to the long wait, get sore throats from cheering and screaming for me, get injuries from all the pushing and shoving… I feel that I’m very selfish.
I really hope that you all will take good care of yourselves, don’t get hurt, don’t be upset because of anything, and even if you are sad, don’t be scared! Because I will write a song to heal you all!
At the airport, a fan asked me “The present that I painstakingly prepared and the heartfelt letter written by others, is there any difference? Why do you not accept my present?” I had no idea how to answer her. I could only say, “I’m sorry”. I’m still thinking, whether my decision to only accept the letter was wrong… resulting in my hesitation to even accept letters now.
It’s actually like this. All these are everyone’s love, I know and I understand. But in actual fact, for you guys to see EXO performing at least once, to be able to buy our album, to raise my lightboard, to cheer for me, or even the fans who are faraway and unable to meet me, but silently wish me a “happy birthday” etc…. these are all the best presents I can ever receive!
Because I’ve heard how the fans have saved up every single cent of their pocket money to buy an album or a present…. or even using up all their money to do all these fansupport… I know. Actually we’re all around the same age, every single cent you have is not easy to earn. Every single cent you have is all your hard work, so I say that I wish everyone would spend their money on more meaningful areas.
The amount of people all over the world who need our help is a lot, to be able to help others is a wish that all have us have, but I also hope that everyone would do what they only can, financially! There might be a little misunderstanding here, which may have caused you guys to donate blindly…
The misunderstanding here is how the fans may feel that doing meaningful things must only be in the form of donations, but it is actually not true. While helping others in their problems, we can also be volunteers, to some volunteer work etc~ Financially, I hope that before any of you give me any presents, or even donate for a cause, please buy something for yourself, for your parents or family members. It can be clothes or just anything that your family members like. Or you can buy something that you need, or buy some nice food for yourself or your family members, or even some nutritious food, to boost your health. After all these are done, then help the needy~ If you guys do this, this is also a present for me!
I hope to receive presents like these every year~ I hope you allow your family members to be able to like us, together with you~ Isn’t it a blessing to be able to sit in front of your television enjoyably, or to watch us perform live? Or is it because you need strength to give me all the support? You must take good care of your body. If you do not take good care of your health, how are you supposed to give us all your warm and enthusiastic support? I know you guys are the best, and of course you will be able to do it!
And there is still me~ I only have a big head~ One neck, two hands, two legs, two feet and one body, all the things that you guys have gifted me, I will never be able to finish wearing them~ But there are times where I’m afraid that if I do not wear them, you all will be sad. I am not able to wear them all, but I’m scared that you will feel that you’ve not given me the right things or that they are not good enough for me.
Actually, everything you’ve given me is good! They’re all really awesome. It’s not only the things you’ve given me, it’s also the videos on the internet, letters…. These are all your blood and soul! I also love them all! I only hope you guys will be happy everyday~ Protect yourself~ Take good care of yourself~ Presents are actually not important! And there is still that line: Your love for me is actually a present to me! And your support also gives me the greatest strength to continue walking on! Thank you for everything you’ve done for me~ I love you all~

31 January 2014, on the first day of Chinese New Year, Yixing left a message on the official website ^^
Looking back at 2013, touching tears are forming in my eyes. Not allowing it to stay, is to show you the most beautiful stage. Just like when all of you are supporting exo, you worked hard. And some things, you all just won’t tell us about it.
Time flies, in a blink of an eye we have walked passed 2013. This year’s honour and glory, I wish to share it with all members from exo and all of you.
Thinking back when it all just started, over ten boys who were fledgings appeared in front of everyone with those innocent looks, until now awarded with thumbs up and praises, behind all of these is because all of you have built up a strong base for us.
May I say it once again: thankful, regretful, touched, grateful? ^u^
I’m really lucky. If there isn’t exo, there wouldn’t be me today,
I also won’t be able to meet exo who are so passionate. Thank you all for supporting me so much.
Actually because I’m not good at taking care of my own body, I may have been absent more often than not. I would like to apologise to everyone. All of our members are great, everyone has their own areas where they are good in and to improve in. I hope you all will like the variety that exo has.
Waiting, is both long and short. If the timing is too long, it might be forgotten. But I hope that, when we are there performing for you, please don’t be greedy with a nod of your head, or a smile. Because that is what ignites the flames of our determination towards the goal. You all are already something that we must have and cannot lose.
So in 2014 the more we will hold our hands and walk forward together! Thank you all for bringing us everything! May 2014 be auspicious for you! (Our group has a few little horses*, I’m a unicorn, which is categorised under horses, this year please count me in ungrudgingly!)
Little friends, receive more red packets.
Big friends, may your studies improve.
Middle-aged friends, may your salaries increase.
Elderly, may your family be happy always, and be healthy.
And please like exo together

20 April 2012, EXO-M had a recording for the <Yin Yue Tai> interview. In the postscript, the director wrote, “1. In one second, he became a props staff, bringing the table back and forth, (he) is indeed a good lad!” 2. No matter what I say to him, I will always hear a “Thank you” at the very end”; 3. When the recording had ended, Lay was the last to leave the place. Carrying his backpack and looking around, I thought he had left something behind, but turns out he was helping to pick up the used tissue paper left by the members as well as the stickers that had fallen. The staff hastily told him, “It’s okay, let us do it” but Lay still persisted in picking up everything speedily, before bowing and leaving TT^TT”
