Chenle’s guest DJ Lai Lai recommended D.O.’s new single “Rose,” and described the song as “heartfelt,” pointing out that D.O. wrote the lyrics.
Chenle said he first met D.O. when the EXO member was preparing for his role in the 2018 musical film, Swing Kids. For his character, D.O. had to practice tap dancing as that was a main element in the film.
Chenle was on his way to a practice room, and accidentally entered D.O.’s instead! So he greeted the senior idol before going to his correct room.
He recalled that D.O. was constantly practicing tap dancing.
Lai Lai: He was practicing for that film.
Chenle: He was always practicing. He was always practicing tap dance. For a long time, I’d hear the (tap dancing noises) everyday.
One fan pointed out that NCT had actually been on stage with EXO when the senior group won first place on M COUNTDOWN in 2016 for “Lotto,” so this was possibly the first time Chenle had met D.O. outside of a music show.
Chenle and Lai Lai applauded D.O. for his professionalism and hard work as both a musician and an actor.
