Saturday was exciting for EXO-L, the fan base of South Korean group EXO, as their idols wrapped up the “EXO PLANET #5-EXplOration” concert at Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) in BSD, South Tangerang.
A group of nine entertained the audience for almost three hours straight, with two members – D.O. and Xiumin – absent as reported by Antara.
EXO staged more than 20 songs, including renowned tracks “Growl”, “Tempo”, “Call Me Baby”, “Love Shot”, “Overdose” and “Monster”. The group gave members the opportunity to perform solo at certain points, thrilling the audience further.
Highlights of the concert included EXO expressing appreciation for the audience for following a dress code set by the concert promoter, namely red tops and dark pants for those on the tribune and white tops with dark pants for other concertgoers.
EXO member Chen noted that the dress code paid tribute to the Indonesian flag, and his appreciative words were met by screams from the audience.

The band also took the chance to sweet-talk the audience, as Sehun and Baekyun said things like “we lacked sleep last night, having butterflies in the stomach as we were about to meet fans”.
Chanyeol went even further as he said that he wished to stay, while fellow members could return to South Korea right after the concert.
In between screams and dancing, the audience sang along with their idols.
Kai said he was so elated with fans joining him in singing his solo track “Confession” that he felt like performing the song three times if he could.
He said the love shown by the audience had lifted the group’s spirit ahead of launching the new album, Obsession, later in November. (mut)
