CECI INTERVIEW: Lay
Attractive point: Warm guy, healing boy. Nationality- Chinese
Praises you want to hear: This is my first time attempting a blonde/ yellow hairstyle. So I’m half anticipating and half worried about what people will say about whether it suits me.
Break time: For myself, it would be composing songs and writing lyrics. Improving on what I’m weak in after attending lessons. And of course, this time my songs weren’t chosen for this album. In order to be able to show my perfect side, I wish to work hard so that everyone can listen to my composition.
Regarding Lay’s composition: Started composing for fun since 13 years old. Out of the members, Baekhyun and Luhan love my ballads the most, they are my support team.
Kris is my assistant in the editing process of my composition. So here I am, saying thank you to you guys.
To Lay, composing is: I feel that the most important thing is the heartfelt intentions between people. I belong to the sentimental/emotional type, I get my inspiration from the the details you miss in a short experience, the family members whom I love, friends, and the emotions I get from my five senses, and when I am playing the piano.
Musicians you respect and admire: Determined Beethoven and exceptionally talented music genius Mozart.
Area in which you are better than them?: I’m better at dancing, compared to them.
SM seniors: They always encourage us, giving us detailed tips in aspects like live performances, choreography, or camera works. They are all angels.
Secret skill people don’t know: Ability to joke around. It’s such a pity people don’t know my comedic skills.
Dance machine’s waist status: Thanks to everyone, it’s a lot better now. I can only say thank you.
Things you treasure: You can’t really say things, but rather, humans, people. Because of the fans, there’s the present me. I definitely have to treasure and cherish them.
Confession: “I will make you the most blissful woman on earth. Trust me.”
Reasons why Lay is the perfect boyfriend: I can give my all and love only one woman wholeheartedly, I can do anything for her, I can give her warm hugs.
3 things you anticipate from ‘her’: Call her little piggy, and not feel sad about it. And I will face her cutely; she will only love me, understands me, and does aegyo to me occasionally.
Lay’s aegyo: zero, I’m very manly.
To Asian fans: Thank you for caring about me no matter where you are, may you guys be healthy and happy.
Lay’s user manual: No coke and soda and I won’t eat. But you still have to say you love me, ‘kay? And hug me warmly and I’ll become better.

CECI INTERVIEW: Luhan
Attractive point: Chinese name means- deer of the dawn. Main vocal and dancer. Nationality- Chinese.
Thoughts on the 12 EXO members being together: The time we share every day is as interesting as that of a classroom setting. Whenever we are in the practice room, it is rowdiness x12. But when training starts, the look in our eyes changes immediately. The fiery look is also x12.
Comeback album: A style that is different from the others. Because it is a secret I wouldn’t say it now. shhhh..
Break time: Not long ago I returned to my home in China, did what an only-child should do.
Regrets when you look into the mirror: I am very satisfied with whatever my parents have given me.
Moments when I feel that I’m very manly: Anytime. Especially when I’m playing soccer, I’m manlier then.
Thoughts on your Crazy Frog nickname: That’s Tao. Only he feels that way.
To send a message to one of the members now with your telekinesis power: When the interview ends let’s go grab a cup of bubble tea!
Luhan’s Korean class, your favorite phrase recently: “Aigoo” Whenever I’m in shock, pity, worried, every time. And “Heol”.
Things you treasure: Recently I like RPG games and gaming PCs. And my bed, which only belongs to me. If only the cupboard can prevent people from getting on my bed to play.
When you are online: I will look for my photos, my mood will lighten up whenever I see the beautifully taken pictures of me by my fans. Thank you.
Proposal: At an empty street at night, I’ll bring her flowers and kiss her.
If you receive a confession: It’ll be great if she can cook me a meal, talking about ingredients, since I’m a carnivore, meat will do.
Reasons why Luhan is the perfect boyfriend: Good natured, will protect her no matter when, and of course, very handsome. Haha, joking about the last part.
Message to fans: Thank you for waiting for so long, I love you all.
Luhan user manual: When I have no more strength and when it’s tough, a little care and concern will do, just a “It must have been really tiring right? Hwaiting!” will do. And I will really gain much strength from that. Basically, I’m very shy, afraid of strangers, but once we get closer, I am really warm. Hope you guys understand.
CECI INTERVIEW: Suho
Attractive point: Sincere, leading the team with warm charms. I’m Suho.
Thoughts on comeback: New music, new performances, I want to showcase EXO to more people. Putting in efforts that are more than those who have waited patiently for us.
If you want any special powers: To be invisible. So I can go anywhere I want.
Airport photos are: My runway. At the airport, I walk while exerting force on my eyes. The photos of me with my eyes closed are funny.
Scary things in airport photos: The pimples that suddenly appear, with the help of DSLR lens. That day when I tried hiding with my hand, it was tedious enough defending indeed..
Managing differing opinions in EXO: Since predebut we already have a weekly meeting that is an hour long. We talk about things that we were unhappy about in the past week, the things that we feel that was a pity. When we have nothing to say, we’ll talk about the positive points of each member and express our gratitude and love.
EXO gathering: Not long ago, in lieu of our comeback, we had a support meat party and I prepared beef intestine (?). The kids who were growing up ate 2-3 servings on average. Maknae Sehun was running crazily here and there. Tao went home to change his clothes and came back to continue bbq-ing.
If 10 million dollars drop from the sky: Treat the boys to a meal. Just say it, kids, beef? Sushi?
Ideal type: Appearance wise, a girl who enjoys literature who has long straight hair, but on the inside, she is someone who is bright and lively. Because I’m manly, I need the complement/opposite.
Confession/proposing: At the crowded Myeongdong area, I’ll shout loudly, “I love you, please accept my feelings!” something like that.
In order for it to succeed: If she is someone I really love, I believe it will succeed no matter when, work to the hard.
If you are not an idol: Honestly, there won’t be anything tough or worrying. No matter where, no matter what I’m doing, as long as there is a clear goal and I work hard towards it, there will be good results.
As a leader, to the company: We will work hard. And members, saranghaja!
Suho user manual: Well done, well done, please praise me. Because compliments make Suho work harder and dance better!
CECI INTERVIEW: Kai
Attractive points: The guy with humour who is in charge of dance and being SEXY in EXO.
Introduce EXO in ten words: The twelve most powerful pretty boys in the entire universe! (T/N: 10 words in English too yayy!) Sub-topic: In the eyes of men, all the members look very handsome too.
Break time: Suho hyung seemed to be in deep thought, pondering about stuff the whole day. Chanyeol is always smiling, Baekhyun hyung with Chen hyung, and Sehun keep talking. And Kris hyung is behind them doing gags seriously. Luhan hyung is in the living room walking around back and forth. Xiumin hyung is at the side tidying things up. And Lay hyung who likes to enjoy time in a blur manner. And Tao is at the side looking at the mirror.
Favourite nicknames: Kim Kai, GGamjong (T/N: black jong), sky lark (T/N: jong dal sae)
Current wallpaper: For my hand phone, it is a picture of me and Luhan hyung when we were watching Man U FC vs. Chelsea FC. Approve shot taken when I was putting my thumbs up for Chelsea’s win. Same for our SNS background. On the SNS it says, “Chelsea won kekekeke”
Genes you are thankful for: Regarding Kim Jong In, this person as a whole is very satisfactory. It’s very difficult to find something about him that I don’t like. hu.
Even I feel that I look sexy when: After training in the practice room, when I look into the mirror after changing my sweat-drenched shirt. hu.
Ideal type: A woman who is as white as snow. Even if she is not the best in her field, I hope she is someone who has pride and passion.
How to confess: At the most unpredictable and unexpected timing, I would confess in the form of a surprise with a drawing. Very sudden. pa!
Anticipated reaction: I will try hard to not let her notice; I want to see her shocked face.
Confession that you want to receive: As long as it is sincere and heartfelt, even if it is just a sentence, it is also OK
Members’ secret: Apparently Kim Jongin’s skin underneath the clothes is really white and fair. And many people don’t know actually EXO back in EXOPLANET are also city kids.
Kai user manual: Don’t think that I look embarrassing when I’m watching Iron Man. Don’t disturb me when I’m sleeping. Of course, except when the delivery for fried chicken comes. When you are with me for a long time you will know that I’m a guy who is very easy to understand. I’m very innocent~ Activate. Though many people may not know, there’s still a little cuteness in me. As long as people love me, I’ll return the love that is twice of that amount!
CECI INTERVIEW: Sehun
Attractive point: EXO’s maknae, and because of it he has unknowingly become the aegyo in charge.
How is it like to be the maknae in a group of 12 guys: Received the love from hyungs. If I were to live again, I will still choose to be born as EXO’s maknae.
Banmal (informal language) TIME GAME: A while ago at the birthday party 10 minutes of the banmal TIME was given, at that time I plunged myself into the game and dashed straight through without thinking. But because I feel that if I continue on with this game I will no longer belong to this world, so I’m going to return into being a beautiful maknae.
If you can have more superpower: Ability to control feelings and emotions. Because to see people I love getting tired and hurt is really heart breaking.
Ideal type: The person who rushes to me first to help me apply medication when I get injured. (And Miranda Kerr ♥)
If you were to confess: Under the moonlight, setting fireworks by the seaside. After that I’ll hold her hands and say, “I can’t do without you. I love you, till I die.” Does it make you cringe? I think I’ll be able to say it better if I am a bit older.
Members’ secret: Suho can’t watch horror films. Although he always claims loudly that he can take horror movies, but he always goes online and manage to avoid eye contact in order to hide the truth.
Convenience store: Biscuits and chocolate, jelly at the counter is first choice!
If you were to steal a member’s ability: Baekhyun hyung’s humour, Kai hyung’s ability to hide his milky white skin under his clothes, Chanyeol hyung’s happy personality, D.O hyung’s beautiful smile, Suho hyung’s straight forwardness. But Suho hyung’s stiff body, nah, forget it(… Hyung, I’m joking.). If I were to steal them all I’ll be greedy, so even if I’m lacking, I will make do with my charms.
Thing you are concerned with recently: The struggle before I sleep and after I wake up! What clothes should I wear today so that I’d look good?
When I’m sexy: When I’m acting cool in front of the mirror with my bare face after I shower. Even if it is not sexy enough I think it’s quite handsome. Because I’m the only one who sees it..
Sehun’s three points: Often smiles, warm heart, collarbone.
Sehun user manual: If I’m very happy I am not able to control myself. So I’d be very thankful if you understand when I am very noisy. I will quieten down in no time. Because I’m O-blood type, I get hurt when I receive criticisms from many people all at once. Please guide me a lot in the future.
CECI INTERVIEW: Baekhyun
Attractive point: The multitalented main vocal who is the most suitable for drawing eyeliner in EXO-K.
6th of May (day of interview), it’s your birthday, how are you feeling?: It feels really good to be able to do an interview and photo shoot on my birthday. If I can hear my fans singing Soul StaR’s Happy Birthday it would be even better.
New album: Training 8 hours every day, plus 4 hours of individual dance practice, so I really wish to tell everyone, due to the long preparation time, the image we will present upon our comeback will be a very cool and handsome one.
Praises you want to hear: The long preparation isn’t a waste of time, it is worth it!
When searching “Baekhyun” online: Saw all the (forum) threads that collected pictures of me since debut, and it feels really amazing, and I saw the tear-jerking fact of me gaining more and more fats on my face.
Have you tried replying anything online?: Many people thought I am shorter than Suho and Chen, and it tempted me to reply.
Which members you will introduce to your sister?: Mature and smart, the model student and leader, Suho hyung! As for the members I won’t introduce, I’m keeping it to myself because I feel bad.
Ideal type: Kind-hearted, well-mannered, a girl who smells nice.
How to confess: Buy a fake flower and kneel in front of her, this is a fake flower (T/N: sounds like ‘i like you’ in Korean), I like you, please go on a date with me.”
If you could be a male lead in a movie: (I want to be a character who is) a boy from a rich family who met a hardworking, thrifty, smart girl, and she changed me. And I will become successful in both my career and love life.
Expose a member’s secret: Suho hyung, even if it is a small wound/injury, he would scream that it is painful for a month!
Things you wanna tell your members: Can we please live in a cleaner way/environment?
Baekhyun user manual: After we get close, I’ll talk nonstop, and don’t feel stress when that happens. You just have to cover my mouth quietly and I will know. When it’s tough I will space out, this means that I’m charging my battery, this time, DON’T TOUCH! I just need to charge for ten minutes and it’s enough.
