[INTERVIEW] 130610 EXO “First Anniversary sejak debut, apakah kita harus menunjukkan sisi rakus kami?” ^^

Posted on

12 orang telah bersatu menjadi grup yang lengkap.

EXO yang dibagi atas EXO-M (Xiumin, Luhan, Kris, Lay, Chen dan Tao) dan EXO-K (Suho, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, D.O, Kai dan Sehun) akhirnya bersatu menjadi 12 member dan memulai promosi di Korea. Mereka merilis full album pertama yang berjudul XOXO (Kiss&Hug) pada 6 Juni, dan mempromosikan title track yang berjudul Wolf. Responnya pun bagus.

‘Wolf’ adalah campuran antara dubstep dan hip hop dan sisi spesial dari lagu ini karena memiliki irama yang liar dan beat yang kuat. Makna dari lagu tersebut, menceritakan seorang laki laki serigala yang hidup di gua yang jatuh cinta pada seorang wanita cantik. Lagu tersebut banyak meraih popularitas.

“Kami sudah lebih terbiasa karena ini adalah kedua kalinya EXO-K melakukan promosi di Korea, tapi ini adalah kali pertama untuk member EXO-M. Kami belajar banyak hal setelah saling mengamati penampilan kami di panggung, kami juga mulai merasakan banyak hal setelah menyaksikan penampilan para senior. Kami saling merindukan satu sama lain saat mereka (EXO-M) melakukan promosi di China. Menurutku, penampilan kami lebih kuat dan hebat saat semua 12 member bersama. Kami sering bersenang-senang dan menikmati waktu bersama.” kata Suho.

Akhir akhir ini, semua member EXO tinggal dalam 1 dorm yang sama bersama 4 manager mereka. Setiap hari akan berisik karena ada 12 orang seumuran yang berkumpul. Meskipun EXO member telihat dingin, tapi mereka punya sisi ‘hati-hati’. Jadi setiap bulan mereka akan saling merayakan hari ulang tahun setiap member.

“Jika salah satu member berulangtahun, kami akan menunggu sampai tengah malam setelah menyelesaikan jadwal dan mengadakan pesta (kejutan). Tapi, karena kami sudah sering melakukannya, meski hanya bernyanyi itu sudah termasuk pesta kejutan (tertawa). Beberapa waktu lalu, adalah ulang tahun Sehun, jadi aku bilang padanya ‘Kemarilah sebentar’ , dia datang dan menjawab ‘Apa kau akan memberiku kejutan?’. Aku harus menemukan cara baru untuk memberinya kejutan. “ ungkap Kai.

EXO yang setahun lalu melakukan wawancara seperti mesin (kaku) sekarang sudah bisa berbicara lebih baik. Kekompakan antar member sangat bagus, hingga jika 1 sisi bilang ‘Koong’ maka sisi lain akan ‘jjak’.

(T/N: Koong dan jjak hanyalah suara beat. Maksud penulis disini adalah, pembicaraan mereka saling menyambung. Umpan balik yang lebih baik daripada dulu)

Luhan, Kris, Lay dan Tao banyak mengalami peningkatan dalam bahasa Korea. Mereka bahkan sudah bisa mengigau dalam bahasa Korea.

“Semua member punya sifatnya tersendiri, meski ada beberapa yang pendiam, tapi kami suka berbicara jadi jika semua member berkumpul kami tidak pernah bisa istirahat. Kris, D.O dan Xiumin adalah seorang yang pendiam, tapi jika mereka bersama member lain, mereka jadi berbeda. Tao sangat baik dalam berbicara bahasa Korea, dia bahkan mengigau dalam bahasa Korea. Jadi EXO-K member mungkin tidak akan mengalami peningkatan dalam bahasa China. Benar kan? Haha.” kata Chanyeol.

“Aku merasa malu saat mendengar siaran ulang wawancara kami dulu. Mungkin orang bilang itu bukan apa apa. Tapi aku merasa ‘Kenapa aku seperti itu?’. Saat pertama kali muncul di SBS Inkigayo, aku melakukan wawancara, tapi aku melakukan kesalahan (tertawa). Aku mengatakan ‘superior orchestra’ padahal seharusnya ‘magnificient orchestra’. Saat itu aku benar-benar malu sampai-sampai aku tak bisa memikirkan apapun.” ucap D.O.

Setelah setahun, Rookie EXO yang biasanya sibuk mencari lampu merah kamera, sekarang lebih suka bercanda dan mencairkan suasana, menunjukkan sisi pekerja keras mereka. Mereka menunjukkan kemampuan berbicara yang tak kalah seperti MC di variety show.

“Saat ini, saat memulai promosi, kami meyakinkan diri sendiri supaya tidak merasa tertekan dan menikmati saja. Setelah lama mempersiapkan, kami punya banyak hal untuk ditunjukkan. Karena sudah sedikit mengenal (dunia entertaiment), kami juga ingin mencoba bidang lain juga. Meskipun kami ingin menunjukkan sisi rakus… (tertawa) tapi promosi EXO lebih utama. Dan jika kami mendapat kesempatan, kami akan bekerja keras supaya tidak mengecewakan.” kata Baekhyun.

Hanya setelah seminggu dirilis, album mereka terjual hingga lebih dari 120.000 copies. Lihat bagaimana angka itu terus bertambah. Fans mereka akan tetap duduk, di manapun music program yang mereka datangi. Mereka juga banyak menerima dukungan dari para senior-seniornya. EXO yang banyak menerima cinta.

“Aku sangat terkejut saat kami bisa menjual lebih dari 120.000 copies album. Ini benar-benar menjadi mungkin karena fans kami. Mereka tak tahu betapa berterimakasihnya aku. Juga pada staf SM, sunbae, dan semua orang yang tidak pernah lelah memberi kami nasihat. Aku akan bekerja keras tanpa melupakan perasaan ini dan melakukan upaya untuk menunjukkan hasil yang baik.” ucap Xiumin.

“Kami benar benar ingin mendapat peringkat 1 saat mempromosikan album ini. Kami merasa akan menangis jika mendapatkan peringkat pertama. Pokoknya, kami telah kembali dengan album yang sudah kami siapkan dengan kerja keras. Karena kami sudah mempersiapkan penampilan yang hebat dan mengesankan, tolong tetaplah menunjukkan ketertarikan pada kami dan tetaplah menyimak perjalanan kami. Terima kasih.” (Semua member)

The twelve people united as one complete group.

EXO who promoted as EXO-M (Luhan, Tao, Chen, Lay, Xiumin, Kris) and EXO-K (Suho, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, Sehun) has finally reuinted its 12 members to start promoting in Korea. They released their first full album  entitled ‘XOXO (Kiss & Hug) on the 6th and are promoting their title track ‘Wolf’. The response is good as well.

‘Wolf’ is a track that mixes dubstep and hip hop and its speciality is to have a both wild and powerful beat. The witty content of the song, which is about the love feelings of a wolf boy who used to live in his cave in solitude until he met a beautiful lady, is currently garnering popularity.

We’re more familiar since it’s EXO-K’s second round of promotion in Korea but it’s the first time for the EXO-M members. We learn things from looking at each other when we perform in music programs and we also feel lots of things while observing our seniors’ stages. We missed each other while they were promoting in China. I think our performances are stronger and more powerful when the 12 of us are on stage. We are currently having fun and enjoying ourselves every day.” (Suho)

The 12 EXO members are currently living in a dorm together with their four managers. It’s noisy everyday because there are 12 guys of the same age gathered together. Even though the EXO members look like tough real men, they also have a careful side to them so, on an average of once a month,  they always make sure to celebrate each member’s birthday.

“If it’s one of the member’s birthday, we wait until midnight after our schedule and throw surprise parties. But since we’ve done this a lot, even if we just sing now, it’s still a surprise party. (Laughs) Not too long ago it was Seheon’s birthday (T/N : It’s obviously Sehun, it’s a typo from the journalist) so I told him ‘Come here for a bit’. He indifferently replied ‘Are you throwing me a [birthday] party?’. I should find a new way [to surprise him].” (Kai)

EXO who was doing ‘machine-like interviews’ just one year ago has now mastered how to talk better than anyone. The synchronization amongst the members is so good that if one side goes ‘koong’ the other one goes ‘jjak.’

(T/N : ‘koong’ and ‘jjak’ are just beat sounds)
Luhan, Tao, Chen, Lay, Xiumin and Kris proved their Korean skills were so good they could sleep talk in Korean.

“All the members’ personalities are really strong. Even though there are taciturn members, we all like to talk so if we’re together we never get a rest. Kris, D.O, Xiumin are usually taciturn but when they’re with the members, they’re different. Tao is so good at speaking Korean he sleep talks in Korean. So the EXO-K members can’t improve their Chinese skills. Am I right? Haha” (Chanyeol)

“I get really embarrassed when I listen to our old appearances on radio programs. People can tell us we were okay, I still ask myself ‘Why was I like that’. The very first time we appeared on SBS’ ‘Inkigayo’ I did the interview but this one was just a broadcast accident. (Laughs)’. I said ‘superior orchestra’ instead of ‘magnificient orchestra’. I was so embarrassed I couldn’t even think of anything.” (D.O.)

After one year, the rookies EXO who used to be busy searching for the camera’s red light joked around and softened the atmosphere, showing their hardworking figures. They showed talking skills that could bear comparisons with variety MCs.

“This time, when starting our promotion, we told ourselves not to feel pressured and just have fun. Just how long we prepared, we have lots of things to show. Since we’re a bit more familiar now, we are interested in other fields as well. Even though we want to show our greed a little…. (Laughs) working hard on EXO’s promotions comes first. And if we’re given the opportunity, we’ll work hard in order not to disappoint.” (Baekhyun)

One week after its release, EXO’s first album sold over 120,000 copies. Just how their number increased, their fans are always in the seats, no matter what music program they attend. They also receive support from their company’s sunbaes as a whole. EXO receives a generous amount of love.

“I was really surprised to see we sold 120,000 copies. It really became possible thanks to our fans. They don’t know how thankful I am. Also to our SM staffs, sunbaes, thanks to all of you for never failing to give us advices. I’ll work hard without losing this feeling and make efforts to show a good result.” (Xiumin)

“We absolutely want to rank first while promoting for this album. We feel like we might cry if we get first. Anyways, we’re back with an album we’ve prepared diligently. Since we prepared a splendid and awesome performance, please show us interest and keep an eye on us. Thank you.” (All)
