In April this year they released Chinese mini-album “MAMA”. The other day, EXO-M held a concert in Tainan, attracting almost a hundred crazy fans to hire a car and follow them, their popularity should not be underestimated.

TAO Born on 02/05/1993, went through: 2010 S.M. Casting System.
CHEN Born on 21/09/1992, went through: 2011 S.M. Casting System.
XIUMIN Born on 26/03/1990, went through: 2008 S.M. everysing Contest.
LUHAN Born on 20/04/1990, went through: 2010 S.M. Casting System.

KRIS Born on 6/11/1990, went through: 2007 S.M. Global Audition CANADA.

Q/ EXO-M have not yet publicly participated in any activities formally in Taiwan, yet have already accumulated a high popularity, do you have anything you’d like to say to Taiwanese fans?
Kris: This already the second time we’ve come to Taiwan, and this time we just happened to have the opportunity to do some official activities, seeing so many fans come to the airport and the place we were performing at to support us, the members were all really happy and furthermore excited, and we hope that later we can perform even more in Taiwan for the fans in return.

Q/ Your impression of Taiwan? Is there any food that you’d particularly like to eat or a place you’d like to go?
Kris: Even though we’ve already come to Taiwan twice, truthfully the time we have to stop temporarily from our official activities isn’t long, despite this there are so many fans who are supporting us, making all of us feel really moved, our impression of Taiwan is really good.
Lay: Because our schedule really is busy, we haven’t had the chance to go out for a stroll, but we’ve heard from SJ-M seniors that Taiwan has a lot of delicious snacks, next time we come we’ll ask our manager to especially arrange a time to taste Taiwanese foods.

Q/ Have there been any unforgettable awkward moments, whether it’s been on stage or in your private lives, since you were formed to now?
Lay: Once in the middle of a performance, because the dance was too intense, my trousers ripped! At the time, there were fans under the stage who immediately made hand gestures to hint it to me, but I completely didn’t pay attention, it was only after we danced 3 songs and I got back stage that I found that my trousers were ripped! There are still a small number of images that have been sent online, it’s so awkward!

Q/ Is there a word or catchphrase you say every day?
Lu Han: Pout~pout! Actually, pout~pout doesn’t really have any meaning, in my opinion it has a sort of exclamation mark like feeling! (At this time Chen who was sitting next to him also “pout~pout”ed)
Xiumin: …… (and then looked at Luhan laughing, so Xiumin’s catchphrase is actually a joke that can only be said between friends!)
Tao: If I meet a difficult situation, I would encourage myself by saying “nothing’s impossible!”

Q/ Will you listen to other groups’ songs normally? The group you admire the most is?
Chen: Of course we listen! The groups we admire the most are the seniors within our company, there isn’t anyone we specifically like, rather we treat them as targets, working hard to follow their direction of success and advance forward.
