Is EXO’s Sehun Mad at Fellow Member Tao?

By in News posted Oct August 20th, 2014 No comments

It seems like Tao and Sehun, two of the youngest in popular boy group EXO (both the youngest in EXO-M and EXO-K respectively), have been hanging out a lot these days. EXO’s Tao posted a photo of himself with fellow member Sehun on his Instagram earlier today.

Tao posted the photo with the caption “What? Hahahah.” In the photo, he is striking a “V” pose while member Sehun has his eyes closed behind Tao, as if deep in thought, or asleep. Or (pretend) mad? Tao doesn’t look mad.

Meanwhile, EXO will be having their concert “EXO Planet– THE LOST PLANET” in Singapore this Saturday, August 22.

The pose seems similar to Sehun’s Instagram post last week, only taken a different angle

SHINee’s Taemin, who recently debuted as a solo artist, confessed that getting dressed up for work is difficult.

On August 20, Taemin appeared on KBS Cool FM’s “Lee Sora’s Music Plaza,” where he talked about Minho being a “one outfit gentlemen.”

During this recording, DJ Lee Sora said, “Last time, Minho revealed that he’s a one outfit gentlemen.” She asked, “Does he wear the same clothes for a couple of days?” Taemin answered, “He doesn’t wear the same clothes continuously.

Lee Sora said, “Girls don’t really like it when guys focus too much on their outfit,” at which Taemin replied thankfully, “You’re the first person that has said something like that
