One thing that's keeping EXO on the right track to success seem to be their role models.


During an interview with TV Daily, the members were asked what they learn from their agency sunbaes at SM Entertainment. EXO shared, "As we perform on music shows, there are times when we get exhausted. But when we look at our sunbaenims, they also go on tours overseas and don't seem to get tired. We want to acquire the same stamina and mindset. Girls' Generation, especially, are women, but after seeing them carry out two-day concerts, they really impressed us."


Though the boys learned by watching, they also got advice as well. EXO shared, "Our TVXQ sunbaenims always call us whenever our teaser or music video comes out. They give us advice one person at a time through speaker phone."


"We also had the opportunity to meet our Super Junior sunbaenims in the practice room, and they told us to show them our choreography. We showed it to them, and they responded, 'To be honest, we asked you to show it to us so we can criticize it, but we have nothing to say,' and said encouraging words instead."


Chanyeol added, "This time around, we appeared on a variety show ['Weekly Idol'] with all twelve members for the first time. We asked Kyuhyun sunbaenim for advice. He told us, 'If you do everything the way hyung tells you to do it, you won't do well in variety.' It was a strong sense of support. We've heard many good words of advice."


EXO must have taken those words of advice to heart because they were able to clinch their first win on a music show on the June 14th broadcast of 'Music Bank' as well as June 15th's 'Music Core'!


Congrats to EXO once again!

I love EXO, but honestly this seems more than a little sugar coated. What was implied about SNSD being "women"?

EXO have like some of THE BEST sunbaenims in kpop so i'm really happy for them.

SMTOWN is awesome!

They have really good sunbaenims tbh. If I was another rookie group I'd be jealous. SMTOWN!
