  • Comments from our Leader Suho – On June 6, during a personal broadcast he held through V Live+, EXO’s Suho talks about how it’s hard not to worry about how the public will react to their newest release. While talking about EXO’s upcoming comeback, the singer reveals how they will present a more extreme concept, as well as two title tracks, because it’s been a long time since they’ve had a proper comeback. Although EXO has released special albums since then, it has been about a year since the release of their last full-length album. He also confesses, “I’m always afraid every time we make a comeback. I know there are fans who believe in us and patiently wait for us, but as singers and performers, we feel like we should show something new and different. However, if it’s too different, then people might criticize us and say, “This isn’t EXO’s style.” On the other hand, if we keep on releasing only similar [music], then people might think we’re just doing the same thing over and over again.” (Source)
