In 2016…
Byeon: Let’s not get SI-CK!!
Sin: have F-UN!!
Nyeon: be CELEB-RITIES >.<

(Note: ‘Fire Monkey Year’ (병신년, Byeon Sin Nyeon) is the official designation of 2016 in the sexagenary cycle of the Chinese calendar. Xiumin is making a three-syllable poem using homophones or words starting with each of the three syllables of ‘병신년’. He seems to struggle with the last syllable, ‘년’ (nyeon), and opts for a word which is spelt with ‘연’ (yeon), instead. Note that he isn’t strictly making a mistake, as this is one of the words affected by a spelling rule dictating that the initial ‘ㄴ’ (‘n’) be dropped (replaced by the null consonant, ‘ㅇ’) in Sino-Koreans words where followed by vowels ㅣ,ㅕ,ㅛ and ㅠ. Although this word doesn’t start with ‘년’ (‘nyeon’), that remains one of the two acceptable readings of its initial character.)

[FROM. D.O.]

Hello, I am EXO’s Kai.
A new year has finally arrived, everyone.
What sort of year was last year for you all?
There were probably times where you’ve felt tired or upset
But in the end, I hope you remember it as a happy one.
Although it is unlikely that the new year will be filled with only happiness,
I do hope that our EXO-L always live happily with smiles.
Everyone, Happy New Years!

To my babies
In the new year, I hope you receive many blessings! EXO will love EXO-L and in return EXO-L must love EXO.
