Excuse us for sounding like his mum, but EXO’s youngest member Sehun is growing up well. Three years ago, he was a teenager who was in high school and juggling duties as an EXO member. Now, at 21, he has grown up to be a fine young man.
Bandmate Chanyeol has revealed on more than one occasion that Sehun is growing up too fast, and Sehun himself admitted during their recent comeback showcase that he wanted to grow up quickly (which was met with vehement protests from fans), but despite standing at 1.81m now, he still behaves like a kid sometimes, which, more often than not, results in the members being outed for their bad habits and *ahem* hidden abs.
When he inadvertently revealed D.O.’s bad habit of biting nails on air
On Super Idol Chart Show, Sehun was goaded into revealing a habit about an EXO member that no one knew about. He chose to divulge D.O.’s habit of biting his nails and even said that the latter had to apply ‘medicine’ on his nails to prevent him from chowing on them. The host, Ryeowook, who is good friends with D.O., warned Sehun that he might get into trouble with the latter for the revelation.
When he had a livestreaming on V app at night – and it lasted more than an hour
More and more K-pop stars are jumping on the V app bandwagon, which allows them to do a livestream for their fans. When the group was in Nanjing, Sehun decided to have his solo broadcast on V app. Although the poor connection caused the livestream being cut off a few times, he remained undeterred and eventually managed to keep it going. While most celebs keep theirs at 10 minutes tops, his went on for more than an hour. Now, that’s what we call real fan service.
When he coolly got angry at a sasaeng fan who kept calling him on air
A sasaeng fan who somehow managed to get hold of his personal mobile number called him non-stop while he was having a live broadcast on V app. Annoyed, he called out on the fan and demanded that she stopped calling. Show ‘em who’s boss!
When he teased his bandmates and fans during “Peter Pan”
Whenever the group performs “Peter Pan” at their concerts, for a period of about 10 seconds, only Sehun is allowed to move freely; the other members have to remain frozen in their positions. The maknae obviously used these opportunities to tease the older members, from attempting to force them to kiss each other to tickling them.
When he speaks Mandarin earnestly
The Korean member has proven time and again that he’s serious about learning Mandarin – and he’s not afraid to speak the language. When the group accepted the award for Album of the Year at the recent Mnet Asian Music Awards, he thanked the fans in Mandarin. A+ for effort.
When he takes random emo shots when he’s overseas
Chanyeol’s Instagram is filled with selfies and previews of his musical creations, while Sehun’s has an interesting mix of selfies and… emo shots. Yes, the same kind of #OOTD we take at Haji Lane and alleys. Unlike the other members who stay off social media when overseas, Sehun usually updates with photos that are worthy of the #OOTD hashtag.
When he revealed Suho’s abs to the world
Suho has abs? Thanks to Sehun, fans got to see Suho’s chocolate abs in their glory before they made their public appearance. He snapped a selfie with Suho in the background – shirtless and with abs. Bless this kid.
When he got angry at Xiumin and Chen for choosing him as the member they least would want to date if they were girls
When Xiumin and Chen appeared as guest stars on a radio show, they were asked to rank the EXO members they wouldn’t want to date if they were girls. Both chose Sehun, which led him to post a photo of the duo on Instagram with the caption, “Don’t even think about coming home. I also don’t want to [date you].”
When he succeeded in getting D.O. to pose for photos on his Instagram, while Chanyeol repeatedly failed
This is probably the power of maknae’s aegyo (the youngest member’s cuteness) at work. Sehun has posted photos of the elusive D.O. posing for his camera multiple times, while Chanyeol, who claimed to be D.O.’s best friend, has failed time and again.
When he did the whole broadcast with his turtleneck covering his chin because he had pimples on his chin
When he did the hour-long livestream on V app, he kept his chin hidden under the turtleneck. His reason? He had two pimples on his chin. Why so cute.
