an unforgettable moment in chansoo’s history
Would it be worth it to become an idol? And what are the chances of you getting chosen/scouted and debuting?
Debuting is one thing. Being successful is another thing too.
Out of thousands, perhaps a couple hundred end up being active.
And from there, a few dozen make a decent income for the risk.
And a handful make a lot of money.
I prefer to be more a master of my own destiny and manipulate my own probabilities, rather than take such a high-risk position as an idol. I like my offline, personal privacy and that’s something I could never have as a celebrity. It’s honestly not appealing to me at all.
"I prefer to be more a master of my own destiny & manipulate my own probabilities, rather than take such a high-risk position as an idol." <—- well said. =)
this part is gold because there are just so many things going on here:
first you have kyungsoo being the tease that he is biting his lips and cocking his eyebrow
then you have a drunk lay
and then a luhan full of swag
a fierce jongin staring into the depths of your soul
a 500% done sehun
a cutesy jongdae…
…and tao conducting his own orchestra performance
On the argument on why SM is giving Chanyeol an acting gig while Kris wasn’t
SM, as a huge company in the entertainment industry, knows that there should be proper timing in everything. Allowing Kyung, Yeol, Suho to act in KOREAN dramas/movies is incomparable to giving Kris acting deals because Kris, in the first place, isn’t Korean & his Korean isn’t really soothing to the ears. Tao has better Korean skills than Kris, & the fans know that. I was there during the DKFC concert in Manila, & Kris’ English sounded drunk. Kyungsoo sounded better than him.
Now if you debate about the fact that Luhan was given the acting gig first among the Chinese members… well isn’t Luhan the visual of M? That’s why it was him & Kai who who represented EXO in the PYL Maxstep MV & both of them always stand in the center of their group formation when they stand as OT12 in interviews & red carpet events. Both of them are considered the primary visuals of EXO.
In idol groups, it is usually the visual that gets the most projects first before the other members. It’s just the way it is. And if you’ve been a Kpop fan for years & follow other groups as well, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. Then when the group gets a firm footing in the industry, the other members get projects as well until they have individual projects like how SuJu & GG are right now.
Actually, all the members of EXO already had individual projects since last year. Kris, to be specific, was thrown into MC-ing (e.g. Simply Kpop at least twice, YT Music Awards w/ Taec & Min, Asian Song Fest w/ Hyukjae & Taec. And he also had radio guestings outside of the usual OT12 guesting (e.g. Kray in SSTP & MBC C-Radio, 5 of them in Hong Jinkyung’s radio) He was even allowed to sing Rainbow in C-Radio & Call You Mine in SSTP. SM wanted to show the fans that he can actually hold a note, not as good as the main vocals but he CAN sing. And he also had that Dream Team guesting w/ Tao. He also represented EXO in the running & archery matches during the Idol Sports Championship last year. And during SM Town, he had Like a G6 w/ Key & Amber.
Point is, SM was also showcasing him & his talents. SM wasn’t just focusing on the Korean members nor the most popular members. So if you wanna think that Kris just got greedy & could not wait for his “time to shine”, then that’s up to you.
