It’s already EXO’s FIFTH year and people STILL can’t stop trying to degrade all they’ve achieved with their own efforts. I’m SICK AND TIRED of this “EXO didn’t work hard” narrative “EXO doesn’t deserve their success” narrative. Tbh, I’m shocked that out of all groups, you’re coming to E FREAKING X TO THE O about “hard work” and having things given to them on a platter, when just a few years ago…not 1, not 2, but THREE members left due to being driven to the ground, after being exhausted until they couldn’t take it anymore. I guess that’s only convenient when trying to tear EXO’s image down, but not when it comes to acknowledging how much they’ve gone through.
EXO benefited off their company? Hell yeah. Bitch, if I work my ass off to overcome the 1 to 1000 chance to get into Harvard then you better bet I’ll reap every single benefit I can. But everything I did to get there, and everything I do once I officially start looking for a career is MY effort, nevermind my university’s prestige. Every obstacle I face from then on, I alone, have to overcome it.
Look me in the eye and try to tell me that EXO faced no obstacles, not after everything they’ve been through would have left more groups than not disbanded. It wasn’t too long ago everyone would gleefully say “EXO is over, they’ll disband soon” I can’t believe all that’s suddenly in the past.
EXO had their head start, they got their privileges and special SM benefits, but just like any idol, at the end of the day they had to grit their teeth to survive. And survive they did– there’s no there’s word for it.
