The end of a decade is a big deal, especially when that decade includes happy memories from some first meetings, trainee days, concerts, first wins, and more like it did with EXO. So to mark the special occasion and to celebrate their unbreakable bond, Chanyeol surprised his members and fans with a special video message at their concert and on his Studio NNG channel.
On December 31, 2019, EXO held the final encore EXplOration concert in Seoul and they made sure to send 2019 off with a bang as they delivered flawless performances, playful interactions, and some emotional moments. One of those moments was when Chanyeol revealed that he had prepared something special to say thank you to his members.
So I made this video of our memories and wrote a letter to leave something more. My members who have been together for half a lifetime and will be together forever, you guys are my flowers and wings. The time we shared since 2008 has been dazzling beyond words.
In the video, Chanyeol collaged video footage of their time together. He reflected on the importance of his members and EXO in his life…
And sincerely sent his love to each and every one of them!
Minseok (Xiumin), Suho, Lay, Baekhyun, Jongdae (Chen), Kyungsoo (D.O.), Jongin (Kai), Sehun. I love you guys a lot. We are one. EXO Saranghaja!
Later, on January 1, Chanyeol uploaded the video along with some behind the scenes content from when he was creating the video. In his upload, Chanyeol also revealed that he wanted to make the members’ cry with his video. Well, mission accomplished because he had us all in tears!
