The press conference was held at the Pyeongchang Olympics Main Press Center (MPC) in Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province on February 21. Members of EXO were reported to have said it was an honor to be performing at the closing ceremony and that they were excited to give a great performance. 


When asked about the winter sports he wanted to try and watch, Chanyeol replied "I have watched almost every short track event. I think it is a fascinating sport and I wanted to try. And I really like curling too. My mother's name is Lee Young Mi, and when the athletes called out 'Young Mi, Young Mi', it reminded me of my mom so I gave her a call."


The "other" Young Mi that Chanyeol was referring to was none other than Kim Young Mi, the leader of the women's curling squad.
