thoughts on doing exoluxion concert for 1 year
we did 44 shows together in one year, even though we did 44 shows there are still something that i feel still lacking. i’m always feeling every performance we did but during concert i’m feeling the emotion when making eye contact with fans and i really like that. that is jaewon-hyung’s goal, that communication is the most important thing and i really feel that.
talking about the difference between the first and second concert
in the first concert we have quite many individual stage, i think it’s good that we can show our individual side but i want to show a lot of things as exo. so i wanted to show a perfect performance as exo during the second concert.
kyungsoo said the epilogue talk event feels like movie’s stage greeting.
shim jaewon said he really like d.o. from a long time ago he feel d.o. has a good vocal color and also a good energy. he hoped d.o. can show a lot of things. kyungsoo replied with ‘yes, hyungnim~’
"as you can see from the stage, i really respect jaewon-hyung as the stage director. if you see exoluxion you’ll know but to me there are no concert which quality is like this. i’m feeling this while doing the concert like ‘whoa~~ how can we made something like this’ as much as this is amazing i think there are lots of hard work to it."
"to me the first performances were very memorable, you have watched el dorado right? i watched it again in dvd and i think el dorado is very awesome."
"seoul is the most memorable concert place but if you exclude seoul then it’s japan. why japan is second because i feel the sense of performing in a big stage at the dome."
Q. Will there be a stage like baby don’t cry water dance at next concert?
A. When we’re doing the next concert there will be lots of good ideas, to be honest right now we’re really loving it/receiving much love we didn’t really know how to surpass that but we’ll try. shim jaewon said he didn’t know if he will direct the next concert but kyungsoo firmly said jaewon-hyung will do it.
While picking the questions kyungsoo turned his body and the fans said ‘it’s cute~~’ so kyungsoo replied with ‘what’s cute?’
Q. During the tour, is there any healthy food that you must eat?
A. No there aren’t, what i like the most is that we can eat lots of food from the country we visited. i don’t think there are a healthy food we must eat, i feel really happy that we can eat the food from many countries.
Q. What is the reason behind baekhyun & d.o. chosen to wear laser jacket during club time?
A. (shim jaewon) Kai asked 'hyung can i do this?' but i have an idea to give an event to d.o. and baekhyun and what i chose is for them to look from high place.
(kyungsoo) I think that it's very fun. i don’t have a fear of heights or something like that. therefore i want to try doing things like that. when the laser shoots out from my body, it reminds me of the time when i went to shinee concert, it's when was a trainee i think? in the concert there was something like that.
Q. Why did d.o. chose the penguin outfit?
A. I didn’t chose it but the stylist did. fans said i resemble a penguin…i think it does resemble me so i wear the penguin outfit. i didn’t quite fancy the penguin outfit idea at first but because the fans like it so i like it too.
Q. Asking about alcohol tolerance
A. I don’t think i’ve ever been drunk before. i don’t know my drinking limit. it’s not that i drink a lot but there are an extent where i cannot drink anymore. and i cannot drink soju because of the smell. ah right now we’re talking about exoluxion so don’t talk about things like this.
Q. Do you like your perm-ed hair?
A. i tried (perm) and i personally think it makes me look young. i didn’t want to look young. ah however, i don’t think i will try dye-ing my hair. it’s because i don’t think it fits me.
Q. Your feeling after exoluxion ended?
A. I don’t feel any regret because exoluxion has been really fun and we really enjoyed it. i’m anticipating next concert. also we did the concert 44 times and i didn’t feel sad ending it even though as a person you’re getting used to something when you do it for a long time. i’m really anticipating the next concert. (talking to shim jaewon) also thank you for thinking for each of the members. i feel really thankful that i wish we can walk together for life together (shim jaewon : for life..?) because hyung is a very precious hyung next to me.
(t/n the first half of the event are shim jaewon & kwon soonwook talking about the concert setlist & making the vcr, i only translated the part where kyungsoo talked on the event.)
