EXO: Love Me Right

Hello
An nyeoung
Konnichiwa
Ni hao


Wow I never realised Christmas and New Years week would be so busy, hence my disappearance for under 2 weeks, it got so hectic at work that even doing the last of my advent calendar got harder to do (I gave in with 2 days left to post for) so I decided that I would take a break on the run up to the New Year and start fresh once we stepped in to a New Year. I hope you had an amazing Christmas with family and friends and welcome to 2016 lets make it an amazing year. To be honest it's already started amazingly as at the time of writing this post (2nd) my page views for the day so far were at 272 which is definitely a big motivation for me especially when I haven't posted for a few weeks, I know many bloggers will say how hard it is blogging and keeping interest but it definitely makes the stress worth it when the interest is there even when you haven't posted for a while so a MASSIVE Thank You to you all that take time to read and check up on my blog. So without further ado lets get back on it.

I'm going to restart K-pop Monday with a post I started last year with EXO and said I would do the repackaged album to EXODUS at a later date well here it is. June 3rd saw the release of the repackaged album to EXODUS titled Love Me Right before the album's release SM released the usual teaser video to hype up their comeback, a comeback I think some fans were worried about as it was announced that this comeback would be done without Tao but stating he was still a member of the group and just recovering from his leg injury, check out the teaser now:

The next day SM released the MV for Love Me Right and for me personally this is my favourite lead single EXO have released (my favourite EXO track from the first listen remains to be Black Pearl) as well as being my favourite MV that EXO have released, I've gone through many bias changes with EXO when I first started listening to them with finally settling on Chanyeol and Lay (with the group splitting in two I'm allowed two favourites ok) but this MV I saw myself going back to the early days of watching EXO and swooning over Baekhyun and Sehun (swooning even more over them in their Star Wars MV collaboration *bows* sorry Chanyeol, sorry Lay but they used their Jedi mind tricks honest the force is strong with them (sorry Star Wars nerd, though the MV was for me a Star Wars let down). Sorry where was I... check out the MV:

Love Me Right was released with 4 new songs including lead single Love Me Right with Tao only appearing in 1 of the new tracks named First Love, the other 2 tracks were named Tender Love and Promise (EXO 2014) with Promise being written and composed by Chen & Lay with Chanyeol writing the lyrics for the rap, it was EXO's thank you to their fans for sticking by them through their hardships of losing Kris and Luhan, Tao was meant to write the rap for the Chinese version but the rap ended up being written by Chanyeol as Tao wasn't around for the writing process, it was finally released that Tao had filed a lawsuit against SM and is now no longer a member of EXO and like Kris & Luhan is releasing his own music. On release of this album and seeing that Tao had not played a part in Promise for me his fate was sealed and I knew he would no longer be participating in the rest of EXO's journey.

As all the previous songs were shared in my EXODUS post I thought I'd share some bonus songs with you and show you what Kris, Luhan and Tao have been getting up to.

Wu Yifan aka Kris is now acting as well as releasing music showing that his talents were hidden within EXO with SM focusing on him rapping.
