EXO went from being treated as a joke by the Korean public during their debut to being one of the most respected music groups in Korea.
EXO went from performing in elementary schools to being the youngest Kpop group to perform in Tokyo Dome and selling out tickets for Korea’s biggest stadium in a flash.
EXO went from being degraded by the Korean public even if they were the youngest Kpop group to win the daesang to proving themselves worthy of the daesang they received by accumulating seventeen daesangs in a span of five years.
They don’t deserve ANY of your bullshit statements saying that they were only successful because they’re from SM. It’s not easy to get accepted into SM in the first place, and not all artists from SM end up being widely known and successful although they gave the effort.
EXO didn’t lose three members, face two dating scandals and still break records after that only to be fed with your negative bullshit. And according to Korean media standards, EXO would’ve already fallen down by now because they lost THREE members, not one and had TWO dating scandals, not one. But EXO proved that wrong and continued climbing their way up to the top and become one of the most successful bestselling artists in the Korean pop industry.
We are not asking you to stan EXO, we are asking you to RESPECT them and their hard work. Because whether you admit it or not, EXO is a group worthy of respect. I don’t care if you’re not well acquainted with their fans. Don’t drag them into it, because they’re not doing anything to you.
If you have nothing good to say, then kindly just shut up. It won’t hurt you to do that, won’t it?
