XIUMIN

Real Name: Kim Minseok
Birthday: March 20, 1990
Position: Lead Dancer, Lead Vocalist
Power: Frost
Subgroup: EXO-M
Brief Description: Xiumin, our dear Baozi, is the oldest member of EXO. This half-fifty hyung makes sure that all the little shitheads in EXO actually get things done and are productive members of society. I honestly adore his singing, and his dancing is amazing. Even though he’s short, he can pack a punch - damn, have you seen those abs?? Plus his amazing XiuGuns?? P.S. he is literally the most gentle, sweet creature alive, until you put him in the same room as Baekhyun. Then you’re looking for a fight. 

SUHO

Real Name: Kim Junmyeon
Birthday: May 22, 1991
Position: Leader, Lead Vocalist
Power: Water
Subgroup: EXO-K
Brief Description: Suho, the protective leader of EXO, is one of the sweetest things on this earth. He cares more than anything about EXO and EXO-L, and would do anything to protect them. Aside from that, he is the most awkward human being to ever walk the earth. I often find myself mumbling ‘Suho is me’ when watching this awkward grandpa be himself. However, it’s his charm. 

LAY

Real Name: Zhang Yixing
Birthday:  October 7, 1991
Position: Main Dancer, Lead Vocalist
Power: Healing
Subgroup: EXO-M
Brief Description: Lay has become one of my top biases, right alongside. He is honestly the sweetest angel on both heaven and earth. He puts his whole life into the members of EXO and EXO-L, and probably cares more about everyone than even Suho does. He’s an amazing vocalist, and his dancing is just … oh lord. Not only that, but he’s super skilled in other musical talents, like writing music and playing instruments. He can’t even read sheet music! He does it all by ear. I honestly have a ton to say about this little unicorn, but I don’t wanna waste your time …

BAEKHYUN

Real Name: Byun Baekhyun
Birthday: May 6, 1992
Position: Main Vocalist
Power: Light
Subgroup: EXO-K
Brief Description: Baekhyun is one member of the trio known as the Beagle Line; made up of Baekhyun, Chanyeol, and Chen, these are the three most hyper members who act like … well … beagles, hence the name. His voice is amazing, and he’s just so adorable! Plus his hands are absolutely beautiful. He also has the amazing talent to annoy the shit out of everyone - even Minseok beats the shit out of him, and that boy is an angel. 

CHEN

Real Name: Kim Jongdae
Birthday: September 21, 1992
Position: Main Vocalist
Power: Lightning
Subgroup: EXO-M
Brief Description: This little boy has somehow made it to one of my top biases. He has a knack for pranking the other members, but is amazingly good-natured. He cares a whole lot for the members, and is always making sure that they’re well taken care of. He also has immense respect for EXO-L, and treats them so kindly. His voice is absolutely beautiful, I swear. I can never get enough of it. 

CHANYEOL

Real Name: Park Chanyeol
Birthday: November 27, 1992
Position: Main Rapper, Vocalist
Power: Fire 
Subgroup: EXO-K  
Brief Description: Chanyeol, aka the Happy-Virus, is constantly smiling. It’s hard to find a picture of him not smiling from ear to ear. Despite his cute face, his voice is surprisingly deep, and his rapping even deeper. Recently, his amazing acting skills have been broadcasted to the world via SM’s web drama EXO Next Door, where he plays a character quite the opposite of him. He’s really improved a lot since debut, this gentle giant, and I hope he continues to. 

D.O

Real Name: Do Kyungsoo 
Birthday: January 12, 1993
Position: Main Vocalist
Power: Strength
Subgroup: EXO-K  
Brief Description: This squishy little baby is quite talented in going from absolutely adorable to absolutely terrifying in .03 seconds. Around most of the members, especially Baekhyun (see how I told you he annoys everyone?), he’s somewhat abusive, but around Kai he is very gentle and smiley. Also, he’s probably got one of my favorite voices in EXO - he sounds amazing no matter what language he’s singing in, whether it be Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, English, or whatever else he’s done. 

TAO 

Real Name: Huang Zitao
Birthday: May 2, 1993  
Position: Main Rapper, Vocalist
Power: Time 
Subgroup: EXO-M  
Brief Description: Little TaoTao is a little angel. I could go on a huge rant about how SM has treated him horribly, but it would be a waste of time because I’m sure that by now you know the circumstances. All I can do for now is relish in the fact that he’s taking a long-needed break in LA. Aside from this, he’s EXO’s own little fashionista, with one of the deepest voices - almost as deep as Chanyeol’s. His singing is wonderful, and his rap can melt your soul. Never doubt the ever-wonderful Huang Zitao.  

KAI

Real Name: Kim Jongin 
Birthday: January 14, 1994
Position: Main Dancer, Lead Rapper, Vocalist
Power: Teleportation 
Subgroup: EXO-K  
Brief Description: Dear NiNi has two personalities - Kai and Jonin. Kai is a sexy, talented player, while in reality, Jongin is a little puppy who is all smiles. He has 3 dogs - Jjang-ah, Mong-gu, and Jjang-gu, who he treats like his very own children. His dancing is beyond amazing - there’s a reason he’s the main dancer - and his voice is probably one of my favorites in EXO. Recently he’s been singing a lot more, which I’m extremely happy for. 

SEHUN

Real Name: Oh Sehun 
Birthday: April 12, 1994
Position: Lead Dancer, Rapper, Maknae
Power: Wind 
Subgroup: EXO-K  
Brief Description: This is my child, Oh Sehun. Sehunnie is a little shitface who needs to be punches, but at the same time he is an angel who needs to be wrapped in a blanket and snuggled. Recently, he’s broadcasted his acting talent on SM’s web drama EXO Next Door, and I couldn’t be any more proud of him. He likes bubble tea and finds joy in annoying his hyungs. This boy is the true devil.  


Seriously, all you need to know is that they’re all big dorks who are super talented. That’s literally all there is to EXO.
