Chinese EXO-Ls commemorate Chanyeol's birthday with massive 'Rubber Chanyeol' inflatable at Han River

EXO, Chanyeol
EXO-Ls are celebrating EXO member Chanyeol's birthday in a pretty big way this week!


On November 25, Korean media outlet Hankook Ilbo reported a 5 - 6 meter high (approx. 20 - 23 feet) inflatable of a yellow hat and overalls-wearing Chanyeol doll was placed at Han River Park in Seoul's Jamwon neighborhood beside Hannam Bridge. Written across the inflatable's chest is a banner that reads: "Park Chanyeol 1127 Happy Birthday."

The inflatable is a special birthday present from 'Baidu Chan Bar', the idol's Chinese fan club hosted by China's largest portal website Baidu. The fan club lovingly refers to the inflatable as 'Rubber Chan,' inspired by the giant inflatable 'Rubber Duck' that floated atop Seoul's Seokchon Lake back in 2014.

Seoul-based netizens have taken to various fan message boards to discuss 'Rubber Chan' and sharing their own visits to the inflatable.

"It's even adorable at night," one netizen commented in response to some night shots another had shared. "I have to go see it."

What do you think about this special birthday gift?

That's why you should never generalize any fandom. Each fandom has it's good and bads, but the goods always shine through :)

Bruh, I can feel the downvotes coming on this post

"but the goods always shine through" I disagree with that, I feel like I see more negative news that good news in general, but it could just be me. Other than that I do agree, NEVER generalize any fandoms.

Nope still more good than bad. If there were more bad the world would be a mess tbh. But the news is irrelevant, it's like the actual news like abc and etc. They never talk about good, only the bad, and when they talk they always change the story, make things more dramatic than they are, make up drama and have even made false protests so they have something to talk about. Honestly never believe the news. Any type of news, tv news and kpop fan news, heck not just kpop, artists in general. I myself see a lot of negative things but the good still outshines the bad even though the bad are very obvious.

Do fan bases get paid for.... well, being a fan?! I don't know, that just seems like a lot of money to be dropping on a large inflatable. It's super sweet to do but on the other hand, I can't imagine how much time these fans dedicate to do so much for their Idol
