As many of you know I’m a crazy EXO-L, I search for anything related to them to download it (technically I do it with every kpop group :p ). So as I was searching, I found their first ever solo concert from their world tour series EXOLOGY. And I said why not? Here I am writing to tell you about the great things I saw and unfortunately the thing that bothered me.
Well let’s start that the concert is fantastic. Since it’s in Seoul, more gadgets were available. Result? EXO had a lot of things to present. Cool costumes were available, like the wild ones in MAMA, the scholars ones in Wolf, or even the ones covered with the well known “Overdose” labyrinth, not forgetting the cute silver crowns in Peter Pan. Then we have the realistic stage. We have many blocks that go up and lift the members a bit higher than the stage in Love Love Love, the platform similar to a round table where D.O and Baekhyun sang Moonlight while the other members sat on chairs around it and did really cool dance moves. But we shouldn’t forget the nets that lifted most of them in the air in Into Your World (Angel) or the cute bicycles that also lifted them in the air in Peter Pan, giving the songs a more magical effect.
After that, we have the magnificent special stages. Whether it’s Sehun, Lay or Xiumin’s dance solo, Chanyeol’s drum session, Baekhyun’s version on piano of My Turn to Cry, Suho’s version of Beautiful, D.O’s Tell Me What Is Love, Chen’s rock song, Kai’s monologue Deep Breath (or like I call it, “the love psychopath monologue”) or Tao showing his exceptional talents in martial arts, EXO definitely nailed it.
And lastly the idea of having fun while chatting and playing with their fans make this concert an exceptional event no one would ever want to miss. I couldn’t stop laughing when they started a battle between EXO-K and EXO-M to impress a fan while dancing on major kpop hits like Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry or SNSD’s Gee and many more!
Unfortunately, there is one thing I didn’t like. If you watched the DVD, you’ll notice that the way the picture kept shifting was very annoying… they were trying to hide something but I noticed it. I counted the members and found out they were 11. Yes everyone, the concert was held before Luhan’s departure. It was very sad to see that despite the fact that he’s a part of this concert, producers worked hard to cut all his talking parts and zoom out the camera to avoid showing his face. Why? Because “they don’t want to hurt us”. Dear producers, by hiding him, you are hurting us 100000 times more! 😦 At least keep his parts as a farewell for the fans, or don’t show the concert at all!
I conclude that despite the disappointing Luhan problem, I really enjoyed the concert (that I watched most of it in my music class :p ) (what? I was bored!), and now I’m waiting for the second chapter of EXOLOGY, the Exoluxion which is definitely different than The Lost Planet, but no less greater.
Thanks for reading! Here are some pictures from the concert! 🙂 And sorry for the bad quality!
