From the beginning when no one even knew how many members of EXO there would be, you could classify me as a “cautious fan”. I followed 2011 pretty extensively and I was tired of all those debuts from mediocre groups that I’m never going to see again. When I heard that SM would be debuting a group I had a bit more faith but I was still cautious. So here, I shall walk you through my road to becoming a fan of EXO-K.
First teaser with Kai. I personally didn’t find him too attractive then and all the teaser displayed was his dancing skills. Not that I had a problem with that, but I’m more of a “captivate me with your vocals” kind of girl.
Second teaser with Kai and Se Hun. More dancing and another member.
Third teaser with Tao. I found this to be a pointless teaser still to this day. And once again, dancing.
Fourth teaser with Kai, again. I’m thinking here hmmm he must be pretty popular if they are showing him in two teasers. And no surprise here, even more dancing. But I have a soft for the song and I really hope it’s on the album.
Fifth teaser with you know who, Kai. We’ve made it into 2012 and all I see is Kai. At this point I start to lose faith in the group consisting of other guys besides Kai.
Sixth teaser with yup you guessed it, Kai. I didn’t even post about this because I was irritated that I was seeing Kai again.
Seventh teaser with Kai and Se Hun. I wanted some vocals now.
Eighth teaser with Se Hun. We finally learn that EXO doesn’t just consist of Kai and there will be a total of 12 members.
Ninth teaser. I stopped naming post and I question why EXO has nine teasers. But highlight, I finally got to hear some vocals.
Tenth teaser with Lay. It took me forever to realize that he was apart of EXO M. No Kai but no singing either.
Eleventh teaser with the Lovely Kai and Xiu Min. No comment, Kai returned.
twelfth teaser with Kai and Lay. I started running out of titles with Kai because I used his name so many times. Here started leaning the fence towards giving up on this group.
What is Love prologue single. The absolute turning point. Great vocals, my favorite part of a group + ballad like song = gaining a new fan.
Thirteenth teaser with Se Hun. Amazingly, I never got tired of this guy. He came in second for SM’s favorite member.
Fourteenth teaser with Kai, yes again. No post meaning I cared less about it. My beginning fondness of the group didn’t spread to Kai yet.
Fifteenth teaser with Tao. Another turning point. I began to appreciate the videos for their content and not the members in the teaser.
Sixteenth teaser with D.O. and Su Ho. Back to judging the teasers harshly. But I was introduced to my possible bias D.O.
Seventeenth teaser with Kris. Back to question what is SM thinking with seventeen teasers.
Eighteenth teaser with Kai. Big hint about me, I’m very sarcastic with the things I like. This post explains it all ^.^
Nineteenth teaser with Lay, Chen, and Baek Hyun. No comment as a result of being teased too long.
Twentieth teaser (oh yes we continue) with Chan Yeol. Official turning point. I started missing Kai. Meaning? Found my bias.
Twenty-first teaser with my bias Kai. Loved the song, loved the dance, no other comments.
Twenty-second teaser with Lay and Se Hun. I enjoyed my rant about the excessive teasers with EXO. They definitely have the record. I don’t think anyone plans on challenging them.
Twenty-third teaser with Kai + other members secretly. This time, I continued my friendly sarcasm with Kai but focused on SM’s trademark pants.
History prologue single. If What is Love didn’t do it for me, History definitely did.
Nope no 24. I know thankfully It took technically 25 teasers for me to officially claim to be a fan of EXO, more particularly EXO-K. As much as the majority of us complained about these teasers, to a certain extent we have to admit that those teasers made people very interested in EXO. You say you won’t watch another teaser and then you end up watching it. The way SM is marketing EXO is that they are going to definitely leave a long lasting impression on you. Maybe they’ll take DBSK’s spot for me, we’ll just have to wait and see.
