EXO-K For The Star [VIDEO]

Su Ho
EXO-K’s leader Suho, who came from the unknown EXOPLANET (A planet out of the solar system), is known for always using a polite and refined language and is a man who “keeps on the straight and narrow”. Just like his upright character and as it can be seen his interview video, Suho has an habit to make clear pauses when he speaks.

KEY WORD | Esuhort

Esuhort is the neologism made from escort (meaning he guards the group) and Suho. It is a nickname given to Suho by the fans to fit with the role he has to lead the EXO members onto the right path and to protect them.

Chanyeol, the rapper of the stars coming from the unknown EXOPLANET, (EXOPLANET: A planet out of the solar system) EXO-K, has fine features that contrast with his charming low voice so he attracts a wide age group. He has a reversal charm, his cute and fluffy image coexists with his chic and arrogant image.

KEY WORD │ Reversal Voice

Chanyeol who got the nickname ‘Reversal Voice’ was born naturally with a perfect visual that acting-dols would dream to have and a charming rapper voice that you will always remember after hearing it only once. He is the one that has this reversal charm that can surprise anyone when you listen to EXO-K’s music and see the performance on stage.

Baek Hyun
Baekhyun, the main vocal of the stars coming from the unknown EXOPLANET, (EXOPLANET: A planet out of the solar system) EXO-K, shows a precise hand movement during their debut song ‘MAMA”s performance, he looks like he’s shooting a gun. As much as the strong and refreshing music, this carved gun dance move is catching the hearts of women from all over the world.

KEY WORD │ 썬 건 Sun Gun

Baekhyun’s superpower is the light. And in ‘MAMA”s choreography, he has a lot of shooting gun dance moves so he received the nickname ‘Sun Gun’. He aims the gun using his light superpower and pulls the trigger bang! Bang! When he shoots, 1000% of Baekhyun’s superpower is released while his opponent wishes he could change his mind.

D.O, the main vocal of the stars coming from the unknown EXOPLANET, (EXOPLANET: A planet out of the solar system) EXO-K, is well organized and likes to cook. So D.O is the happy chef in the team, his domestic-type personality makes him gain bonus points and makes him a strong candidate for the future best husband.

KEY WORD │ DOmestic

DOmestic is a word that refers to D.O’s faithful personality to the domestic life, it’s a nickname made with D.O’s surname and the word domestic-type. As for the pronounciation ‘D.Omestic’ is a bit more correct.

Just by standing on stage, EXO-K’s dancing machine Kai, who came from the unknown EXOPLANET (A planet out of the solar system) has the ability to captivate the audience through the perfect performances he puts his heart and soul into and his powerful and charismatic gaze. To capture the hearts of women, Kai uses his special superpower, teleport.

KEY WORD | Kaura

Because he possesses a strong and mysterious aura, Kaura is a nickname created just for Kai by joining his name and aura. To understand this nickname perfectly, you absolutely have to watch EXO-K’s “MAMA” performances.

Se Hun
EXO-K’s maknae, Sehun, who came from the unknown EXOPLANET (A planet out of the solar system) is gaining a lot of nuna fans with his adorable aegyo and also stirs up the protective instinct in them with his lovely maknae-like way of speaking.

KEY WORD | White

Because of his white skin and lovable eye-smile, Sehun has been told he resembled a puppy, hence the nickname. Sehun, who is very photogenic, emits light in every picture and his unique puppy-like features attracts the public’s gaze.
“We want to show our superpowers in a show like Running Man”

“We want to be acknowledged as musicians through our songs and performances first”
“When will we be able to use our superpowers? It’s a secret for now”
“Almighty-dol” Baekhyun, “Singer Songwriter” Chanyeol, “We want to give it a try”

As soon as they get on stage, they automatically steal the audience’s souls, making people curious about the superpowers they use. This group, EXO-K, is seeking for perfection in their lives and performances. In order to fit with their strong and addictive title song “MAMA” and deliver their concept of “stars coming from another planet” properly, they are planning to stick to a mysterious image for a while.

“Since we are still rookies, we are lacking when it comes to variety shows. Moreover, since we are musicians, we thought we should have our performances and music acknowledged by the public first” - Suho

EXO’s team motif as well as all of the members’ competences have been shown in a calm and orderly way for a 100-days-long period of promotion. Because the “Idol company” SM Entertainment devoted itself into the production of this boygroup and their supersized promotion caught the attention of many, the members’ burden was huge but as they were getting close to their goal, they joined forces and strived to concentrate on their training in order to show the best stage.

EXO’s singular point is that each member has his own superpower. Suho (water), Baekhyun (light), Chanyeol (fire), Kai (teleport), Sehun (wind), D.O (earth), every member has a power that fits his image and that pleases him.

“If you watch the teasers you will know about it but I teleported to find the other members. I used my power to unite all the members (Q: So when are you going to use this power again?) I still can’t tell you how I am going to use the endlessness of my superpower but please look forward to it” - Kai

When asked “How about you use your powers in SBS’ variety program <Running Man>?”, they remained quiet for a bit. As expected, EXO-K picked <Running Man> as the variety program they would like to take part in.

“The members are all cheerful and like to run around. (Q: So would you like to use you your powers on <Running Man>?) Yes. We want to show our special capacities on <Running Man> (Laughs)”

As soon as the camera is on EXO-K, who are always pleasant and always speaking coherently during their waiting time or when they pose for photoshoots, becomes quieter and show a fresh appearance by making mistakes. Of course, among them there were witty members who would slap the others’ laps and say “Yes! That’s it!”

“I feel like Chanyeol and Baekhyun will do a good job on variety shows, Sehun and Suho with acting and the two of us (Kai and D.O) can just stay home and cook (laughs)” - Kai

Saying they do not want to rank first on music programs or win the rookie award at the end of the year would be a lie since this is every rookie’s goal. EXO-K revealed they wanted to be like their company’s seniors and grow ahead of the others.

“I used to play instruments but now that I am a dance music singer, I focus on the dance practice. I also want to strenghten my position as an EXO-K member, learn how to play instruments again and become a composer and lyricist” (Chanyeol)

“If I get the chance, I want to try acting and variety in order to become an all-around entertainer” (Baekhyun)
