EXO‘s Chanyeol recently uploaded a new video on his YouTube channel venting his frustration about the prejudices fans hold against him and expressing his deep inner worries about music.
The video is titled “LOEYMENTARY part 2: To Real Loey and Beyond“, and it shows Chanyeol and Sehun preparing for their next album.
In the video, Chanyeol opened up about how he was greedy to show everybody who he really is outside of EXO.
Chanyeol also confessed that being an idol came with a lot of pressure when it came to human relationships.
When I met people while I was active as an idol, there were times when I couldn’t say what I wanted.
He then went on to reveal his true thoughts on the prejudices fans hold against him and his desire to break them.
I’m greedy. I don’t want to be known as the visual member who raps because he can’t sing or dance. I want to be acknowledged for the true passion I have for music.
Following the confession, the video proceeded to show Chanyeol practicing the piano and working on making music in the studio.
Fans who heard Chanyeol’s true thoughts are responding with comments of support such as “I’m always cheering you on“, “You’re so admirable“, and “What a passionate man“.
