The fans have also waited so long for our first solo concert, and we have prepared our best to make the wait worth it.

It’s such an honor to stand on the stage that our seniors have stood on.” EXO-M member Xiumin also expressed his feelings, stating, “I am so happy that we are able to fulfill one of EXO’s dreams of doing a concert.

I hope there aren’t situations like this in the future and I want EXO to become one.” The majority of opinion was shock at the fact that this all happened so close to the concert. Luhan expressed gratitude to the staff for pulling it together, “First of all, the most touching aspect was that even though there was only a week till the concert, the staff worked very hard to make a perfect performance.”
