Suho’s health advice
After the members asked fans to show their support by screaming, Sehun commented that the fans’ throat would hurt because they were shouting so loudly, and then added, “Ah, it wasn’t the right time to say that,” after the screams suddenly died down. Suho, the resident health nut, then advised fans to eat medicine to soothe their throats after the concert, and recommended propolis, which can fight infections.
The youngest member showed off his playful side throughout the concert. When they were performing “Tender Love”, he tried to get between Xiumin’s legs, earning him a kick from the eldest member. During “Power”, he playfully shoved D.O., which got him a kick in the rear.
Their high notes
During his duet performance with Chanyeol, D.O. not only perfectly enunciated all the English words to “For Life”, but also showed off his steely by hitting the high notes effortlessly. Likewise, Chen proved his mettle on “Heaven”, singing all the parts to the group song with little effort. But it’s little wonder why he could nail the performance – after all, he wrote the song.
The dance performances
While EXO is known as a performance group, their dance prowess was still on full display during their solo performances. Main dancer Kai lived up to his “dancing machine” nickname by pulling off a modern dance – complete with complex techniques – that only experienced dancers could do, while Suho showed off his sexy side on “Playboy”. Sehun’s fans were treated to a rare solo performance of their idol, who rapped and dance to “GO”. While most members flew solo, Xiumin and Baekhyun teamed up for a dance performance, “Battle Scene”.
Chanyeol and D.O.’s playfulness
While we know the two are the best of friends, fans got to see their interaction up close at the concert. As they were performing “Sing For You”, Chanyeol teased D.O. by singing along to his part loudly sans the mic, prompting the singer to cover his ear and laugh while crooning his lines. During their ment, the two were also seen tap-dancing as the other members thanked their fans.
Possible comeback spoiler
With rumours of an impending comeback have been circulating on social media, Baekhyun hinted that they were indeed having one soon. He teased, “We’re going to come back with better performances in the future, so don’t be too sad.” And right after Baekhyun said that, Xiumin broke into a dance. If their previous spoilers were anything to go by, the choreography he did was definitely a spoiler… right?
