    their songs
    i see people complaining about
    EXO being at the top for years only
    because of their "looks" & SM yeah...,
    but what they fail to see is their discography.

    and you can complain to me saying
    that everyone has a "preference" yeah
    to an extant....but for others
    that "preference" i would call bs
    and jealousy that warped into biasness
    because that's what had happened to
    me. yes im a true story of a jealous fan
    who complained about how it was unfair
    that they're from SM, until my sister showed
    me their b-sides. I was impressed but i
    didn't want to be
    , so I held off. And bc human
    are petty, I know others like me exist and
    they exist in the form of those who say
    "oh they're overrated" but has yet to listen
    to their songs fairly.

    You can see the same thing happening
    to many big groups like Twice, SNSD, and
    probably soon BTS, it's already
    happening to more established groups
    like BigBang. Of course not all big groups
    have 'good songs' but that's for another
    time.

    now you can stop asking "why is EXO
    popular?" bc the answer is fairly obvious.

    don't even get me
    started on their ballads.

    of course this is my opinion &
    I like to believe that I have
    a fairly good taste in music.

    Exo is one of the few group where I
    approve of 95%+ of their songs.

    this performance set.


    there's a reason why this won best album


    what if


    Exodus


    Sweet Lies


    Boomerang


    their Winter Album :nervousk:

    To be honest I wasn't a huge EXO fan either in the past (though I liked Overdose and MAMA) ^^'
    But since my brother is an EXO-L, he often listened to their title tracks and B-Sides :) Because of him I got to know a lot of B-Sides from EXO and I was like: OMG, their vocals are really amazing *-*
    Since vocals are really really important for me, I started to like them even more after listening to a lot of their B-Sides and I also started to listen to them more :)
    And now they are in my TOP10 of male groups :D

    a masterpiece. so yeah I became a fan in 2014~

    Omg I can relate so much, but I wasn't jealous as much as I didn't understand the hype around them, especially with a song like Wolf, I never understood how could someone like that.

    But the SM STATION and Suho happened and I went from reading their updates out of boredom to watching EXO related vids almost every night.

    Their vocals gave the definite push. The more I listen to them the more I see they are everything I wanted and didn't know I was looking for.

    That video spam is :lover1:

    I didn't like EXO either...

    Both because of their songs and their fans...

    But I've changed...

    I had a little trouble getting into exo because they kept beating my other faves, but I got past that. Their b-sides are amazing. "Promise" is a masterpiece

    tbh i dont want to get into EXO because there's already been 2-3 lawsuits and I don't want to get attached to a member only for them to leave the group.

    I admit they have some good songs though. but i avoid getting too deep into the fandom and the members.

    I became a fan in 2015 and miracles in December is in my top 3 or 2 EXO songs. You know it's hard to choose a #1 song from their discography.
