EXO‘s Sehun and Chanyeol recently appeared on SBS Power FM’s Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time where they talked about their not so good first impressions of each other when they first met.
As the older “hyung” of the duo, Chanyeol started out by describing his first impression of EXO’s “maknae”, Sehun.
Chanyeol described that while Sehun started out as a baby when they first met, he turned into someone he was scared of.
When we were trainees, Sehun was a total baby. And 3 years later, he would call me ‘hyung’ and follow me around. But during his more difficult years, he started to rebel. At the time, I was really playful with him, and I grabbed him by the leg. Sehun hit me, and I was so shocked that I went blank. I started to be scared of Sehun after that.
But Chanyeol also revealed something good about Sehun when he first laid eyes on him.
When I first entered the company and saw Sehun, I thought, ‘This is definitely SM.’ I thought he was really good-looking.
On the other hand, Sehun directly confessed that his impression of Chanyeol was bad right off the bat.
He always played around with his instrument in an unlikable way, so he didn’t give off a good impression among the trainees.
And in response, Chanyeol explained why.
It wasn’t because I liked it. I just didn’t know much about the world at the time. Because the big agency was different from the world I knew before, I was scolded. I thought, ‘I’m Chanyeol,’ but when I first entered, I felt discouraged. There were a lot of people who were talented.
Unlike their first impressions, the two talented rappers of EXO are now killing it together in their sub-unit duo.
It’s been 12 years since they first met, and they’re still going on strong.
