#EXO scores their historic 100th win on Korea’s music shows. EXO has now won 100 times on the domestic music shows as a whole, most recently with the lead song from their fourth album repackage ‘Power,’ since the group’s first studio album’s title song ‘Wolf’ marked their first-ever win. #EXO100thWin
For once, let’s take a moment to appreciate SM’s GENIUS planning and the MASSIVE influence EXO has worldwide and especially online. We never hear much abt EXO’s social media presence bc they never had a twitter and some took that as an excuse to say they were “not as powerful” “declining” unlike other groups in this day and age who utilize social media.
But the SECOND EXO opens an account, THE SECOND the account changes their dp of all things, the SECOND they make a post, #EXO, #kokobop, #thewar ALL start trending worldwide, their followers skyrocket to the hundred thousands, and everywhere from WEIBO to INSTAGRAM to TWITTER, EXO’s taken over. Twitter Korea itself welcomed EXO….they introduced exo logo emojis…..the teaser hasn’t even been released for an hour and everyone’s running round in circles
THIS is what you all forgot in the past year or so where EXO was practically inactive. When a top tier group is quiet it’s easy to pretend they’re not at the top anymore. It’s hilarious that the second EXO comes back that delusion crashed and burn. Say hello and make way for the kings
Typically, new supers are a thing to be celebrated…but a supervillain has just released a ‘super virus’ and it’s causing certain people to spontaneously loose control of their dormant superpowers. Now, new supers are developing at a rapid rate, and they don’t have control over their powers.
Character A is sitting in class when the silent classroom explodes into noise as Character A can suddenly hear everybody’s thoughts.
Character B wakes up with a splitting headache. Going to the mirror, they see that their eyes are emitting a bright, green light, and Character B can levitate objects at will.
Character C is in a heated argument with Character D when all of a sudden, a large storm cloud manifests indoors and begins pouring rain over them both.
Character E is at work when they feel a strange tingling in their hands. Weirded out, Character E looks down at their hands and discovers that there are flames pouring out of their palms.
dear ace kids: headcanoning characters you relate to as ace isn’t desexualizing any more than bi/pan kids doing the same is oversexualizing. you all deserve representation; your identity isn’t shameful
I think it all started with “There’s no song where Taehyung does the intro..” “Then I’ll make one!” at a concert, and we laughed and let it pass by. We just smiled away like that, but it kept lingering in the corner of my mind.
It so happened that a few months ago, I think it was when Taehyung’s desire for composing fired, he showed me a song, saying, “Hyung, I want to try making a song like this..” and asked if I could write a track for him. I said “Okay,” then played the chords and sent him. But that song was all just snaps on EP chords, it could hardly be called beats, so I didn’t like it. And then the talk about Festa came.
I asked “Shall we make one together properly this time?” “Sounds good, hyung!” And we started like that.. We keep going back and forth overseas. Choosing the instrument or theme is the most important when composing, but I had a hard time focusing at first. So I asked Taehyung.
“What do you want the song to be about?” “The dawn.” “The dawn? What kind of dawn?” “Just, when sitting at the park at dawn waiting for my friend.. The chirping sound of the birds.. I really like that moment.” “Oh, that hazy, bluish moment??” “Yeah! I like that bluish quiet moment.” “Me too!!”
We formed the emotion bond like this, and started right away. Later I asked him who that friend was, he said it’s mostly Jimin..* Anyway, I really like the dawn too. I’m a fan of the moon and the dawn. The twilight, the moment when the day moves from afternoon to night, And the dawn before the morning.. You know what it is.
So I thought “This would go well with guitar, let’s try guitar”. And played the guitar and piano. Luckly the track came out well and we decided to write the melodies separately to combine later. I always like watching the moon, so I thought I must start by talking about a letter sent to the moon. Luckily when we combined later, Taehyung liked it too.
So it started with my intro and Taehyung’s B part. Taehyung’s chorus was better too, but it felt a little strained so I gave him a hand.
Taehyung entrusted the lyrics to me, so I wrote most of it, but the chorus’ start was written by Taehyung. (With the deep night~) The theme started from Taehyung’s story too, so our work portion’s about 5:5. It’s my first time working together with Taehyungㅡ I wanted to do so since a long time ago, and I’m happy we got the chance this time. I wanted to take a step back and let Taehyung’s emotions materialization be the center itself. This song doesn’t show all of Taehyung’s emotions, but I hope it would show as much as it can. Hope you can get a glimpse at Taehyung’s dawn.!
Thanks to KOXX’s SHAUN-hyungnim for awesome re-arrangement. Personally, Taehyung’s usually in charge of powerful parts in our group songs, but I hope he can do this kind of light songs often too. I think Taehyung’s emotions and mine intersect more than I thought.
Working on this song together makes me think, isn’t Taehyung the one with the lightest song and emotions in Bangtan? You did great Taehyung, thank you for singing it so well :)”

“A song that wouldn’t be done without Namjoonie-hyung~ I have always wanted to write about the dawn.. I like songs of this style, so I often listen and sing along to them, and even try writing them. I got so passionate about writing it that I asked Namjoonie-hyung for help, and he gave me exactly the kind of beats I wished for.
The beats Namjoonie-hyung gave me were so good that I wrote 6 melodies for it. I used the theme of the birds at dawn. The time before the sun rises when 4AM passes to 5AM, just me and the dawn birds (I just call them as “birds”) at an empty park, that bluish moment seems so short. I like that moment so much that I once went there for 5 days straight. I wrote the melodies based on Namjoonie-hyung’s beats there alone, I can’t write lyrics as good as Namjoonie-hyung but I worked hard to put in my emotions.
In the midst of the dark (serene) dawn, the hollow (drowsy) sound, the icy winter blow You close your eyes, spend endless nights with the sound fly The dawn birds cry, yearningly, ardently fly Listen to your voice, fill your voice, this dawn
It’s like I wrote the letter for the dawn birds (just “birds”). I couldn’t write the song perfectly by myself so I thought of giving up halfway, but thanks to Namjoonie-hyung, ‘4 O’clock’ was finished~~ Poet Kim Namjoon indeed~
I’ll work hard to present more songs to you in the future as well And all hail Vocal Monster👊🏻🤘🏻☺️
I’ll work hard to make and bring you more songs in the future☺️”
You know what? I told myself I’m going to stay out of this scandal because I know myself too well and I don’t want to bother about what fans say about Super Junior (I’ll include them all because SJ is a group and not only Sungmin and Kangin).
I am so dissapointed by everyone right now. I’m dissapointed because of Sungmin deciding to leave just because a few korean ELF are talking non-sense stuff (or fans, because they are not ELF to me anymore and I don’t care what you’re going to think of me saying that). I’m dissapointed because of Label SJ for “respecting” Sungmin’s decision and listening to a few fans who are standing against him. I’m dissapointed because of the actual ELF who promised to respect their decision but said they’ll leave instead just because Sungmin “decided” to not be a part of their comeback. I’m dissapointed because I couldn’t keep myself calm and shut the fuck up (I have an urge to swear right now and that doesn’t really happens to me often).
So, congrats to everyone who “won” this. Enjoy your time because Sungmin will be left out and enjoy Super Junior member sadness for couldn’t help him more than this. Congrats for giving yourself joy but giving the others sadness.
Besides all of this, I am going to stay Super Junior’s side until the very end. I am going to support this comeback no matter what will happen because I am an ELF.
