You probably know Oh Sehun as the youngest member of EXO. Or one of the tallest members. And one of the main dancers. That much is obvious from watching an EXO performance, but how much do you actually know about the 24-year-old?
Well, for one, he has really passionate fans who are willing to go the extra mile to buy ads in the New York Times and in New York’s Times Square to commemorate his birthday.
His Baidu Bar (Chinese fanclub) bought a full-page ad in the New York Times to announce his birthday, while his fansite, Iridescent Boy, bought a space on the digital billboards of Times Square for the same purpose.

He is one of the most pampered members of the group
You can call it maknae privilege, but Sehun is undoubtedly doted on by his hyungs. He revealed on various shows that the older members would cook for him and buy him meals. During their comeback showcase that was streamed live on V App two years ago, he revealed, “Last night, D.O. hyung cooked for me after I said I was hungry,” adding, “He wanted to make egg rolls but failed so he made scrambled eggs.”
He is also the most loyal member
A lot of members have attested to his loyalty to the members on various shows. On Star Show 360, D.O. described him as the member who is dependable and gives the members energy.
He would choose friendship over love
A testament to his loyalty, he coolly admitted on Knowing Brother that he would choose friendship over love any time. The group also acknowledged the 24-year-old as the most loyal member.
He is close to NCT’s Johnny
The two are known to be good friends and have even gone out to eat together even before Johnny made his debut in NCT. At last year’s Idol Star Athletics Championships the EXO member hilariously mistook Jeonghan from Seventeen for Johnny, initiating a conversation to a bewildered Jeonghan, because he claimed their back views looked similar.
He has a dog named Vivi
His pup has even appeared on an episode of V Live! On the show, he tried to train Vivi to jump over or around obstacles, but the dog remained unimpressed and had to be guided (LOL!). While Vivi doesn’t live with him in EXO’s dorm, he updates his Instagram with photos of his dog when he visits his family. When D.O. got his own dogs, he posted a photo of the fur friends meeting!
He has more than 13 million followers on Instagram
The EXO member currently has 13.1 million followers on Instagram, coming in third on the list of most-followed Korean celebrities on Instagram last year, after Big Bang’s G-Dragon and fellow EXO member Chanyeol.
He drops hints about EXO’s comebacks on Instagram
Apart from posting behind-the-scenes photos of EXO’s activities, he sometimes posts photos of himself on vacation as well as drops hints about the group’s upcoming comebacks. Before “Ko Ko Bop” was released, he uploaded a photo of Oreo O’s cereal (which is only available in South Korea!) with the caption “Koko”. Two days later, he uploaded a photo of a bowl of rice, with the caption “rice” or “bap” in Korean, which has a similar pronunciation to “Bop”.
He works hard for his abs
But he doesn’t always want to show them off. During a recent concert in Japan, the rapper revealed how he finally understood what fans wanted when he found out that they were disappointed when he didn’t take off his top to show off his abs during his solo performance (he has done it on previous shows). Aww, someone tell him that he’s more than just abs!
He can pull off any hair colour
He is quite the fashionista
Sehun was dubbed by Vogue as the best-dressed man at a Louis Vuitton’s show in Paris. He has also made appearances at store openings and has sat front row at various fashion shows. In a previous interview with us, he said, “All the members are interested in fashion. … I don’t think I dress exceptionally well compared to other members, but I enjoy dressing up.”
