The whole world now knows that figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva is a huge fan of EXO. She’s even been known to post videos of herself dancing to their songs on YouTube and has stated before that she listens to them before performances.
When EXO’s Baekhyun was interviewed for JTBC’s Morning & program on February 23 about EXO’s upcoming performance at the Olympics, he revealed something that surprised viewers about Evgenia.
“All of us were so happy when we were told that we’d be performing at the closing ceremony. It’s an event that is watched by the entire world, so it is a great honor for us. It’s a stage of dreams that not many get the opportunity to participate in. As we’ll be representing K-Pop through our performance, we’ve been holding a lot of discussions about our stage.” — EXO’s Baekhyun
The interview also turned towards EXO’s international fans. Baekhyun was asked whether he knew that Evgenia Medvedeva was a fan or not. Amazingly the news had reached him!
“If I ever have the chance, I would really like to meet her. Whenever we EXO members hear that athletes enjoy listening to our music, we get amazed and end up talking about how amazed we are through our group chat. We strongly wish to meet and greet everyone personally.” — EXO Baekhyun
Baekhyun finished the interview with good wishes for all the athletes’ health, safety, and good fortune.
