  1. kai is very handsome i love him. he is also very sexy and cute .i hope that kai doesn’t have a girlfriend pls pls don’t have a girlfriend

  2. yeah, Luhan EXO M wasn’t a JYP trainee. I thought Lu is his sure name not Xi. Luhan never said abt his girlfriends, ppl just assumed he had the most. Xiumin was 2nd winner, he was the 1st. Ppl should be more careful to share facts. We should know the border between facts and rumors :/

  3. Sehunnie has a falling tears eyes like girl -___-++
    Sehun: Umma~ I want a wife ^^
    Umma: No!!

    Umma: Waiting when u stop cry at school and tell me what ur classmate borthered you then I will find a wife for wipe ur tears ==^
    Sehun: Anya!!! I need now T0T
    …End imagine~

    Ahahhh… -___-^

  4. thank you for the information.. btw, please correct the kai section, at part 3: “And her blood type is ‘A’”.. he is a boy, so that it must be “And HIS blood type is ‘A'” 😀

  5. i remember that that i’ve seen the picture of kai and taemin before, but i also remember that most of the ones who posted this picture said that it’s taemin’s brother Lee Taesun and not Kai. Just wanted to mention ^^

    • The anti fans issue was caused by an untruth rumour about M1 members (the planned name before EXO), since D.O still having his training days. The rumour said that when TVXQ held a concert, M1 members were playing their PSPs instead of watching their seniors. So the angry Cassies start to hating M1. But somehow, the rumour only pointed towards D.O. and Suho, although the rumour is not true.

    • is a popular South Korean term literally meaning “best face” or “good-looking”. Originally used as a slang term, this word in the English lexicon has evolved into describing a person that follows specific style of fashion. A person desiring eoljjang status would gain popularity on the internet through entering contests where their photos are judged and chosen by voters, though many became well-known eoljjangs from having popular Cyworld accounts or have gained popularity in school for being attractive.

      Many eoljjangs model for popular Korean fashion websites, and some have entered the Korean entertainment business and have since risen to stardom.
      Although the word originated in South Korea, followers of such trends could be seen in Japan, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Europe, the United States and Canada.


    • why not?

      i meant, unless you get to be really famous, its not likely that any of us will have a chance with any of them..

      yea, unless like i said if u really were a famous celebrity and close to them 🙂

      theres nothing wrong with disliking someone’s gf/bf, but don’t hate on them if you don’t eve know them…

      they might be someone whos really special to them.


      didn’t want to sound mean/offensive… sorry if it did 😉

  9. Luhan and kris are so so cute! Luhan is really a beautiful, yes beautiful. Kris is really good looking, Prince like. Tao is really cool! I think he has a charm that makes him really attractive. Exo-m fighting!

  10. Never knew that Suho oppa is refer as Second Choi Siwon and never knew that Chanyeol oppa can beatbox my bias is in Exo m Who is from China Beijing Haidian and China Hunan Changsa always 힘내용~ 컴백 스테이지 넘 멋졌어요 멜로디 가 계속 귓가 에 남고 특히 중국어 버젼 의 크리스 오빠 와 루한 오빠 의 파트 ᆞ

  11. Woaaah! Luhan why you’re so old?! *old potatoe* 😀 pls don’t have a girlfriend!! Pls wait for me 7 years, then i’il be yours 😛 *•* xD

  12. OMG!!! The heights of D.O., Baekhyun, Suho and Xiu Min are just… too wrong/high…don’t you think is that ? Pls check other sites or just look closely at D.O./Baekhyun/XiuMin and Kai when are beside … I’m sure that D.O. or Xiu Min are not as tall as Kai. Even D.O. said at a Tv show than he’s the smallest in the group…

  13. oh i really love about kris..
    you know what kris.when i just read your facts it really makes me super duper happy.
    you are so handsome and i really love you from the bottom of my heart.i really admire you as the way you are.
    I have watch and practicing the steps in all the music video of your group.wow!!fantastic!!I really like the wolf,what is love,growl,history and mama..you look so handsome there..

  14. I’m one of EXOTIC especially at D.O. or Kyunsoo …. I love everyone, all of them is CHARMING,SINGER,DANCER and JOKER …. But, I have only 1 question, DOES EVERYONE HAVE A GIRLFRIEND?

    =>> Saranghae EXO-K and EXO-M especially KYUNGSOO 🙂

  15. Although it might be late….i just wanna comment just to say that i love kai,d.o., luhan and my dear sehunnie……..i love exo!!

  16. Exo oppa s are so great , with their come back song Miracles of December, I even cried at one part, I wish I can meet them for once in real, Saranghae yo Exo oppa s Exo forever~

  17. Baekhyun is main vocalist not lead vocalist…and D.O is really different from Morgan SM*ASH,how can his handsome being said that he same with Morgan?! D.O is 1000% more handsome than Morgan.

  18. Sigh* I just hate it when someone is TOO humble (Lay). Everyone’s like “Ohh Lay is an angel!” I feel as if he’s just hiding behind everyone’s arrogance to have that angel image with all of his “amazing cheesy ass quotes”. Comparing his pre debut stories and after his debut stories makes me wonder if he has a split personality. I hate the fact that my Exo bias is like this… UGH WHY IS HE SO HOT STILL. I feel bad for the other members in Exo K, especially Kai, due to Exo M’s humbleness. Exo K and more specifically Kai is always deemed the cocky, IDGAF, careless guys due to Exo Ms humbleness. That’s why everyone’s like “Lay and Luhan are angels, Lay is so underrated” while the hardworking leader Suho who’s keeping Exo stable is actually the one getting no attention, it seems as if acting angelic and your face is the leading factor in attracting girls these days, including me for the face part. Sorry if this seems irrelevant as fuck to this post, just had to get my feels out to somewhere where Exo was. I love Lay, he’s funny and great looking, just don’t like this side of him. As a Chinese, I also feel slightly bad these days because Exo M is taking over the “Kpop” market. I feel as if it’s supposed to be Koreans expressing their culture, not China dominating over it and every “kpop” fan converts to their fan. It also doesn’t feel right when people say I listen to Kpop and only stan Henry, Exo M, SJ M and their music or call them oppa when they are Chinese.
