EXO’s Chanyeol, Romantic Singer-songwriter Idol


EXO’s Chanyeol showed his music studio for the first time through the 4th Exomentary, which aired on Monday. On the show, he not only showed his studio, but also introduced some of his own music that has not been publicized for his fans.

Chanyeol’s relaxed outfit, which simply included a cap and a hoodie gave him a ‘boyfriend look’ that is quite different from the powerful and masculine image of him on the stage.

He introduced every corner of his studio saying, “this is the place you see in my SNS”. His drawers full of model figures and cute ornaments proved that he is no different from other boys his age.


After he introduced his studio, he revealed some of his own songs. His outstanding songs included “Curious” (literally translated) and “Cheer up”, which were both romantic and sweet.

However, because it was broadcasted at night, there were some fans that got tired. To those fans, Chanyeol friendly told, “Think of this program like a night radio program. If you get tired while listening, feel free to go to bed and you can also do your homework if you want”.

The program followed by its main event, named ‘Music by Chanyeol, Lyrics by EXO-L’. Through the event, Chanyeol composed a song on the spot, and fans could add lyrics to it by adding comments. It is certainly not rare for singers to show their composing sessions in real time. However, Chanyeol sublimated this to an event for his fans and proved that he is a pro-communicator.
