EXO Talks About its New Mini Album and Love


EXO held its comeback show at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul on April 15. More than 8000 fans gathered to see the members and the stadium heated up with the shouts of the fans. At the event, EXO performed its hits such as 'Wolf', 'MAMA' and 'Growl'. And the group also performed its newest songs 'Overdose' and 'Run' for the first time, electrifying all the fans. I was there and the shouting sound was really ear-splitting.

EXO's Greetings
Tao: I really missed you.
Baekhyun: I missed you. Please enjoy the comeback show.
Xiumin: It's been a long time, hasn't it? Nice to see you back.
Chen: Thank you for being so patient. I've been looking forward to seeing you again.
Suho: As a leader of the team, I think fan's health is the most important thing. It is really nice to see you, but please stay safe. I love you. (Right before EXO appeared on stage, one female fanatic fan fainted and was taken to a place of safety)
Kai: Your shouting is still loud. There's no one like you.
Luhan: I'll do my best for our comeback show.
Lay: Thanks for coming. You are so cute too.
D.O: Have you been waiting long? Please be patient. And safety is paramount. Please don't push at the back.

Kris: I missed you. I love you. Thank you.



Track-By-Track Preview

Moonlight
D.O: In the lyrics, one man loves a woman but that woman loves another man. The song is about the man's broken heart. It is a mournful song.
MC Jeon Hyun Moo: Then, please sing the song mournfully.
Chen: Well, we have a member who is currently acting. It's D.O.(D.O was cast in SBS' new drama 'It's Alright, it's love'.)

D.O sang the song with a mournful expression, and then gave fans a bashful smile, wiping the sweat off his face with a towel.

The second challenger was Baekhyun. He sang the song with a serious look and smiled.

At that time, fans began to chant Chen's real name Kim Jong Dae, and he became the third challenger. He showed off his outstanding singing skill there.

MC Jeon Hyun Moo: The game tied.

Thunder
Chen: It is a refined R&B dance music. It is about tragedy of man and woman's lost love. The lyrics are distinctive.

Chanyeol sang the song with a mournful expression. He looked a little bit nervous and did his best.

Xiumin also picked up the microphone but he sang the song with the wrong Chinese lyrics and said "I'm sorry."

Lay: I want to sing the song too. I really like the song. (He sang beautifully)


Run
Chanyeol: In the song, we sing "Let's leave together for the unknown world where is full of stars."
MC Jeon Hyun Moo: If you have a girl friend, where do you want to leave for?
Chanyeol: Well, uhm...EXO planet.
Tao: I want to go to beach in Qingdao, my home town.
Baekhyun: My grandmother’s house. I want to eat sweet potatoes and potatoes there.
Xiumin: Do I have to go somewhere? Here are my girl friends in the stadium.
Chen: Oh, I have a heaviness in my chest because of Xiumin. I want to go to the East Sea to watch the sunrise.
MC Jeon Hyun Moo: To watch the sunrise? Then, you have to arrive there a day ahead and spend the night with your girl friend.
Chen: Haha, I leave it to your imagination.
Suho: I want to go to Apgujeong-dong. My home and SM entertainment are there.
MC Jeon Hyun Moo: Oh, you're going to take your girl friend over to your place.
Suho: I will introduce her to my parents.
Kai: I will just hug her in my bosom.
Luhan: I will go to Tiananmen(the Gate of Heavenly Peace in Beijing, China) and take pictures with her.
Lay: My workroom. 
D.O: Would you like to come over to my place?
Sehun: I really wanted to take my girl friend to EXO's concert. Well, she's here.(He pointed all the fans in the stadium)
Kris: One, two, three! (Fans: Galaxy!)

Love Love Love
Xiumin: It is a dreamlike R&B music. The melody was borrowed from Arabian music.

Overdose
Suho: It is a urban R&B dance music and is about a man who is addicted to a fatal love.
Baekhyun: The Underdogs and Kenzie collaborated for the song. Fans' love is something we are really addicted to.


Closing Remarks
Suho: We have been working very hard for new album. We will give our best performance for the fans. By dividing the team into EXO-K and EXO-M, we will be active in both Korea and China. But there also will be special stage performances and you will be able to see the 12 members performing on stage all together. It's a great honor to be able to hold our exclusive concert in May.
Chanyeol: It was so exciting to perform in front of you after a long interval. Please give us your love.
Baekhyun: You will give us your great love, right? We will make you happy throughout the year.
Chen: It has been 2 years since we held our debut showcase, and thank you very much for your unchanging love.


Interesting Moments
**In the middle of the show, Tao has been to the bathroom quietly. After he came back from the bathroom, MC Jeon Hyun Moo said "He looks fine now."
**Foreign members such as Lay and Luhan had some little difficulty in speaking in Korean, but female fans shouted, "So cute!"
**All the members were greatly cheered, but shouting sounds differed slightly depending on the member. I think Lay was the one who drew the most enthusiastic response.
**The members said that the choreography for 'Overdose' is 'Overdose dance'. Kai and Lay gave fans a demonstration. And Baekhyun stated, "When we were filming the music video, D.O was lying on the ground, while the other members moved upwards and made some formation. Well, it was not easy to keep in tune with the members and I made mistakes quite a lot."
