10 Times EXO’s Chen Went Viral (For The Best Reasons)

We can’t wait to see you soon Chen!

With three days left of EXO Chen‘s military service, fans are already starting to trend his name in anticipation of his return. We’re here to join in celebration of the king of vocals, and what better way than to look through some of his most viral moments?

Β 

1. ‘The Eve’ Fancam

Chen may be the king of vocals, but his dancing is just as breathtaking. At 2.4 million views, this sensual fancam is shaking the hearts of EXO-Ls.

2. King Of OSTs

Chen is famous for his OSTs, and “The Best Luck” is at the top, having been awarded the “Best OST by a Male Artist” and “Best OST Song” at the 5th So-Loved Awards and the 16th Seoul International Youth Film Festival respectively.Β And what’s even more amazing is that the studio and live versions of the song sound exactly the same: ethereal.

3. The Iconic Mic Drink

We joke that Chen eats CDs for breakfast, but drinking mics might be another reason for his incredible vocals.

4. His Live Serenade

There’s no argument that his voice is melting the fans’ hearts, especially those high notes. But what brings us to tears is the absolute look of love and adoration he has as he sings to EXO-Ls.

5. His “Tears” Performance

Even in the original female key, Chen has no problem hitting all the notes. With his bright tone and powerful vibrato, Chen awes his listeners, and his fellow EXO members could not be prouder.

6. The bridge of the 2016 MAMA “Transformer” stage

The entire performance is a masterpiece by EXO, with their iconic live vocals ringing through the stadium. But Chen’s lines in the bridge send the crowd screaming, and who can blame them?

7. His 10 second high note in “Drop That”

“Drop That” is probably one of the most intense songs in EXO’s discography, and Chen delivers with this insane high note. I’m out of breath just listening to him.

8. His adorable dance while waiting on stage

While the original song he’s jamming to probably isn’t “Ring Ding Dong” by SHINee, his dancing is still super cute. Also, those EXO-NCT Dream interaction crumbs! (Although it’s hard to tell in this video who’s older hehe~)

9. Lending Lay his lap

It seems Chen has always had a fatherly heart as he takes care of his members in the sweetest way. Incredibly talented, cute, and caring? Chen is an angel in disguise.

10. Idol Or Rock Star?

EXO constantly sets new precedents in K-pop with their outstanding performances, exploring all genres of music. And though Chen is best known for his heart-wrenching ballads, his rock performances send chills down our backs.
