On the March 15 airing of tvN's 'Life Bar', Xiumin was asked about the hardships of being the oldest EXO member. He replied, "There is this heaviness being the oldest hyung."
Xiumin explained, "I also know how to joke around and be light but I have too many dongsaengs. So when I'm with my members, I become the quiet type who doesn't act up. That part is a bit unfortunate and hard for me."
When asked if the EXO members ever get into fights, Xiumin revealed, "We've never got in a physical fight. We all know that if someone gets in a fight then they will not be coming to practice. And we hate that because we would have to practice and set up the lines again for the missing member. If emotions build up, we sit together and talk. And things settle down faster if we have a couple drinks."
