let me introduce you to exo!
exo is a group that consists of 10 members, 8 of them are korean and 2 of them are chinese (there were originally 12, but two of the chinese members left the group)
exo is supposedly a group from “outer space” that’s why you’ll see that they have like “superpowers”
there is exo-k (k stands for korean and this subunit is formed by 6 korean members)
suho (stage name), is the leader of the group and his superpower is to control water. his real name in junmyun. he is the “rich” one here so we usually make joke calling him $uho. although he is the leader you’ll often find videos where it’s hard for him to control the other members, and he get frustrated but looks really cute lol (i’ll be linking you to teasers they have so that you get an idea of who is who)
teaser [suho is the second guy who appears in the video]
D.O (stage name), is the main vocalist of the group and his superpower is strength. his real name in kyungsoo (he is the first guy that appears in the first teaser link) he is the shortest member and you’ll be able to identify him because his eyes are bigger that the other guys and his lips form a heart shape when he smiles. yeah, he is the guy with black clothes and the other members are scared of him because he will jokingly hit them
what is love mv [d.o is the first guy that sings]
baekhyun is the main vocalist of the group and his superpower is to control light. when he smiles you can see his canine teeth. he’s really playful and do cute faces and send hearts with his fingers. he can play the piano (he is the other guy that sings “what is love” with d.o)
chanyeol is the main rapper of the group and his superpower is to control fire. he is the tallest member, he has a big smile and his teeth are big too lol, and his ears are really big. you might get tricked by his cute face but his voice is really deep. he loves to play the guitar and he can play the drums and the piano as well
kai (stage name) is the main dancer of the group and his superpower is teletransportation. his real name is jongin. he is the second youngest of the group and he is a really sweetheart most of the time if he is not dancing. he is really passionate about dancing and you’ll notice it every time they are on stage. moreover, you might think that he is sexy and stuff, but he’s really cute and shy. he appears in most of the teasers
sehun is the youngest member of the group and his superpower is wind. he is miranda kerr’s number one fanboy. he might look like a tough boy in photoshoots, but he is full of cuteness that will make you want to punch the wall to regain you sanity. he is the creator of “yehet” “ohorat” and an upgraded version: “yahat.” he is really handsome but he has a trademark face that looks like the grumpy cat
teaser [sehun is the one with the gold jacket and kai is the one with gold pants]
we are done introducing exo-k, and let’s go for the exo-m
exo-m (m stands for mandarin chinese, this subunit was formed by 4 chinese members and 2 korean members, but now it’s 2 and 2)
xiumin (stage name) is the oldest member of the group and he is in charge of twerking and screaming hahaha. although he is the oldest, when he makes cute faces you might mistaken him as the youngest. his superpower is to freeze. he doesn’t talk that much, he is a coffee and soccer lover. his real name in minseok and he is korean. he has abs, the abs where you can wash clothes.
teaser [he is the second one in the video, the first one is kai]
chen (stage name) is the main vocalist of the group. his real name in jongdae and he is korean. he is in charge of thunder. his lips form into a kitty’s mouth when he smiles (?). he is also called the chensing (dancing) machine, and his voice can be really high pitched. another sweetheart!! a fan gave him flowers and he took one and gave the rest back to the fan.
what is love mv [chen is the one who sings first]
tao is in charge of the rap in chinese now. his superpower is to control time. he is a chinese member and although he might look scary, he is really cute (the other members say that he’s a crybaby) he knows wushu, which made him get a really long introduction as “AB style kungfu panda tao.” yep, his blood type is AB. you’ll be able to tell him apart with the eyebags under his eyes (this is the panda part lol) and his lips! the shape of his lips… how do i explain that?
lay (stage name) is the main dancer. he real name is yixing. his superpower is healing. he is a chinese member. he is an angel walking on earth! always worrying about the safety of fans, but he claims to be a unicorn. you can tell him apart because he has a dimple [although chanyeol has one too, lay is shorter.] he is also talented with instruments! he plays by ear the guitar and piano. whenever exo gives a speech, he’ll be the one giving it in chinese. he is really cute when he starts asking questions. his favorite color is purple (irrelevant fact lol)
teaser [lay is the one with gold dots in his jacket and the other one is kai]
teaser [lay is the one lying down, the other one is sehun]
i’ll give you an introduction of the former exo members because you’ll see the in your dash as well (they are both chinese)
luhan (lu is his last name and it means deer) he was the lead vocalist and lead dancer in exo-m. his superpower was telekineses. he loves soccer. really cute and innocent looking, but he hastes to be called cute so he’ll always argue that he is very manly. he was the face of the subunit, but when he makes derp faces, he is like another person. when exo debuted, we all thought that sehun and luhan looked alike. he is the other guy that sings “what is love” with chen.
teaser [luhan is the first guy in the video, the other guy is sehun]
teaser [luhan is the one on the right, the one on the left is kai]
kris was the leader of the subunit. his superpower was to fly. his real name is yifan. he was the first one who attempt on giving us a name as fans, so he called us galaxy. thus, we called him galaxy hyung (hyung means older brother in korean.) he is really funny and awkwardly cute! he is the anime character in flesh and bones.
i hope this small introduction works in hopes of you being able to tell them apart as join us, exo-ls
i’ll drop a few more links to their mvs and showcase
