EXO-M Dance Lesson
Aww<3 So Sweet!
Full Subbed Video
Host: We have EXO-M here with us today, welcome!
EXO: We are One! We are EXO-M
Host: Really really polite, did the company make it a rule to this greeting or?
Kris: To us respect is really important and we are a new group after all so it should be a must
Host: Ah, really polite, would you care to do an introduction of yourselves first?
Host: We have 2 korean members right, all of you have been living in korea am I right?
Kris: Yes, we don’t have a problem communicating in korean!
Host: Oppa! Saranghaeyo!
Kris: That’s I love you oppa
Host: Oh you said it to me! You got tricked! Are fans envious of me now because your leader just said he loves me. I’ve seen your fans and they are all so polite, I went out to ask them if they have a fanclub name but they said no. Do you have any preference in which you want your fanclub to be named?
Everyone: Nope, we haven’t thought of it.
Host: I’ve heard of EXO-K, together with EXO-M, why is your group named like that?
Kris: We are a huge group, EXO. Basically EXO-M and EXO-K are twins who will perform under the same skies just in different languages. Like brothers
Host: All of you are aliens, we are from Earth, welcome to earth! I’ve watched all of your teaser and your fans probably would have too and we are all amazed. How many days did you take to film those teasers?
Kris: Actually it depends, for mine it took a day
Lay: Mine took a day too, I danced a lot for during the filming, but I personally find dancing enjoyable so I didn’t mind
Host: What’s your role in the group?
Lay: I’m mainly focused on the dance segments.
Host: So the most difficult moves are done by you?
Lay: Pretty much, but everyone’s dance skills are good. Nowadays I’ve been practicing floor moves, but it’s not perfect yet
Host: Ah, you’re so humble. Can we have the other
members speak about their filming as well
Host: The member who keeps translating for the Koreans please speak of your teaser filming
Luhan: Mine too one day to film as well because after filming there’s editing too. I can be considered the assistant lead singer in the group
Host: Is the leader the lead singer?
Luhan: Chen is the lead singer.
Host: Who actually gives all these roles to all of you?
Luhan: The company did, the roles were split according to how high their pitches could go and Chen can go a higher note than me therefore he is the lead singer
Host: Chen I’m curious to know how high your notes can go
Chen: I’m sorry I can’t do the live demo now but I’m my high notes are probably stronger so maybe that’s why
Xiumin: Mine was filmed for about 3 days, separately , not 3 consecutive days
Host: Tao I’ve seen your teaser, you do martial arts, am I right? Was it done using special effects?
Tao: No, I’ve been learning martial arts since kindergarten but I got an injured once so I stopped for a while so I did that stunt personally
Host: Is the injury serious?
Tao: No it won’t affect my performance on stage
Host: So are you the member who’s in charge of fighting
Tao: No my role in the group is a rapper
Host: You debuted on the 8th am I right? Were all of you satisfied with your performance?
Kris: When we performed in shen zhen that day all of us were nervous so we did make mistakes, but not really huge ones. Just in conclusion that performance wasn’t perfect and it could have been better
Host: Maybe we can’t tell the mistakes, but nervousness can’t be avoided. Is there a method EXO uses to decrease the stress and anxiety because a performance?
Kris: We have a specific group gesture that we do to cheer each other on. (Members all did a demo)
Host: It sounds like “sayonara”
Kris: No, it basically means that we are one and we’ll cheer each other and love each other no matter what
Host: We are really honored to have your group at Sohu just a few days after debut. MAMA also has it’s mini album, MAMA means mother but does your song have any relation to mother?
Luhan: No MAMA in this case means someone of a higher authority, like a god. It just has its unexplainable meaning.
Host: I’ve seen the MV and it’s really good, how long did you take to produce MAMA, the choreography and songs?
Luhan: We took about 1-2 months to master it because the dance was pretty hard.
Host: is there a dance move that is pretty simple for me to learn?
Luhan: The one part at the end, it goes “MAMA MAMA” (whole group does the hand gesture)
Host: Was there any interesting events that happened during the MV filming?
Kris: I do have one, because we all have our special elements, for example water or ice. Mine is a dragon and there was a scene where I have to jump and flip off the building. Initially I thought it would be done with special effects, but after that I was told by the director that I would have to do it personally, with the help of wires. When we arrived at the set I realized there were many different camera angles prepare and I had to flip backwards more than 100 times just for that scene, but it ended well
Host: Yes, the end product as we can see from the MV was rather good
Tao: When I was filming my teaser, it was a fighting scene and I was really nervous and lost then. I didn’t know what I was doing and repeated some moves many times.
Host: So can I consider you as a martial arts expert? Will you want to take up martial arts films? Do you fight?
Tao: Apart from practicing, I don’t fight. But yes if I get the opportunity I would love to do a martial arts film
Host: Are your ages revealed? Can I talk about them?
Host: So Tao is the youngest, how old are you?
Tao: I am the youngest within this group, but not the youngest in EXO. I’m 19 this year
Host: Hurry up address me as uncle!
Host: Next we’ll have Lay sing and play the guitar
Host: How long have you learnt the guitar for? Maybe
if you have a concert we’ll see more of your talents and performances
Lay: I’ve been learning for 2 years
Host: That was really good if I didn’t see that it was you I would have thought it was David Tao! (known Chinese artist) So Kris is the leader, why is he the leader?
Tao: Kris has a really great sense of responsibility and because he is bilingual (English, Korean and Chinese and some cantonese) , so the members chose him.
Host: Is Kris the oldest?
Kris: No actually Luhan, Xiumin and I are the same age.
Host: Well luhan looks younger
Kris: Among the 3 of them I’m actually the youngest
Host: Let’s have the fairest member speak
Host: Yes you
Xiumin: I don’t have any special method of maintaining
my skin tone, just constantly washing my face.
Host: Ah, naturally fair. So there are a few Chinese members here, have all of you gone home ever since joining SM?
Kris: Depends on how busy the company is, normally it’s 1 to 2 times. It just happened that during a few new years I haven’t gone home.
Lay: There was once when I didn’t get to go home for 1 and a half years.
Host: So what are your family member’s thoughts on you
Lay: They are really glad I’m debuting and I hope they take care of themselves well.
Tao: I really miss home too, and I hope my parents will take care of their health.
Host: I apologize for bringing this topic up early in the morning, for the Korean members they probably got it easier?
Xiumin: Yes we still do get to meet our parents when we were training
Host: Korean members do you take care of Chinese members a lot when you are in korea because they don’t get to go home. Like do you invite them over to your house?
Xiumin: Because Chinese member’s Korean are all really good so they can plan and take care of themselves too. Sometimes when I want to take care of them it feels unnecessary because they organize their lives pretty well too. But we do invite them over at times
Host: Afterall you are a group now, so in the next segment I hope to see how well all of you know each other
1. Who eats the most? Tao
Tao: Since young I liked eating so maybe that’s the reason I eat the most
2. Who is the laziest? Luhan
Luhan: I always don’t hear the alarm when it rings!
Host: So who are the roommates in your group?
Chen: I share a room with Kris, Luhan and Lay in one room, and Tao and Xiumin in one room. I can’t share a room with xiumin because we need to interact more in Chinese
Host: Can the Korean members speak a sentence in Chinese?
Xiumin: Really brilliant!
Chen: Very good!
Host: All you can say are encouraging words, learn a tongue twister from me?
Xiumin: Really difficult!
(They tried the tongue twister but failed)
Host: Does any of you have a girlfriend?
Host: Does the company not allow any of you to have one?
Kris: It’s just we all have our careers as our top priority and we don’t have time and are really busy
Host: Speak of your ideal type of girl
Kris: I like kind hearted girls, can take care of others, someone who is really filial. Must be able to cook too
Yixing: Cute, can do house chores and must be really filial
Host: So you and leader have the same ideal types, if it happens that you fall for the same girl will you give in to him
Yixing: Yes I would, we are brothers after all. It all depends on fate and who she would choose!
Luhan: My ideal type is someone who is gentle and soft spoken kind
Host: Luhan are you not awake yet! You are really quiet today. Xiumin what about you?
Xiumin: A girl who is cuddly
Chen: Someone who can take care of me, like a noona, age doesn’t really matter to me
Host: Is it because since young you lack parent’s love that you like noonas?
Chen: No it’s not that I just like someone to take care of me
Tao: I gave it somethought when I got home yesterday because I was asked this question yesterday. Maybe someone pretty, someone with a good body. For me as long as she has a good personality, be it cute or mature, I don’t really mind
Host: Luhan you were scouted on the streets?
Luhan: I was a little afraid when that SM lady approached me, she asked for my name and gave me a namecard
Host: The other members got into SM through auditions? Was training tough and how many hours did you all train?
Lay: When I first got to China, training was for around 12 to 14 hours a day, it was basically just sleeping eating and training every day. But after a while I got an injury so the number of training hours a day lessened
Host: Have any of you thought of giving up because it was too tiring
Kris: For me because I trained for 4 years and I didn’t get to go home during new year, I was really upset and because all my friends went home so I was alone, I thought of calling home but that would have made me miss them more so I hestitated
Host: Did any of you cry because you’ve missed your parents?
Kris: Yes. Everyone did
Host: Let me ask a questions, who cries the most in your team?
Tao: I’m just generally easily touched so I tear at quite a lot of things. Like if the other members tell me ghost stories or I hear of anything ghost related, I’ll cry. Also during movies or just any touching stories, I would get emotional too
Host: Recently sohu is holding an idol search competition, do you all have any words for the contestants who have dreams like all of you?
Tao: I have this really motivational quote that keeps me going all the time, “Nothing in the world is impossible to me” I hope you all believe that too and keep going!
Chen: Don’t give up your dreams and keep going forward, just like how I’ve got here today, please keep working hard!
Xiumin: I have a favorite Chinese sentence which is “Really great, jiayou!”
Luhan: Please don’t give up your dreams and keep working towards it!
Lay: As long as you work hard you’ll succeed, keep going
Kris: All of us are around the same age and at this stage everyone should have some fun and just take up challenges, so have confidence in yourself, as long as you do you’ll make it, work hard!
Host: Can we see the rings that you are wearing on your hand?
Kris: EXO ring
Luhan: This is EXO’s logo
Chen: This is the ring that actually gives me my power, lightning
Host: I hope through this interview you will mind the questions I have asked because there is bound to be a lot more information we still don’t know but would like to find out. And also because of your debut and luhan’s birthday which is coming soon, Sohu has prepared a birthday cake for all of you.
Host: We can also share the cake with all the fans outside, and do you all have anything you would want to say to your them?
Kris: It was really motivating and touching to see so
many fans at the airport fetching us that day, we hope all you will keep supporting us in the future
Lay: We will really work hard to present more songs and more amazing performances to all of you, thank you for your support and concern
Luhan: Really thankful for your support and we hope to show you more of EXO-M’s charm
Xiumin: Really love everyone and thank all of your for your support, I’ll work hard at learning Chinese to speak to all of you more
Tao: Please continue loving and support EXO-M and also EXO-K, thank you so much
Chen: Thank you for all your support
