EXO’s 5th solo concert ‘EXO PLANET #5 - EXplOration’ was held at Seoul Olympic Park KSPO DOME (Olympic Gymnastics Stadium) a total of 6 times from July 19th to 29th.

 

The weather was bad during the 6 days of the concert. It rained on and off, making the fans nervous.

 

A variety of events were held outside of the concert venue, and the fan events were especially memorable. The fan events such as dress code, encore sing-along, slogan giveaways were led by fans’ voting and hosting. The topic of the event was the albums released by EXO so far, which led to a higher understanding and participation from the fans.

The venue of the previous concert ‘The EℓyXiOn’ was Gocheok Sky Dome, but this concert was held in KSPO DOME, which had a better view from every seat and let us enjoy the concert a little more.

 

It was the first concert without the two members who went to serve in the military. Xiumin enlisted on May 7th and D.O. did on July 1st. Their absence felt a little empty, but the rest of the EXO members did their best so that we didn’t feel the absence of the two members.

 

Every moment of the concert was great and became fun memories, but there were a few moments that became really special memories. There was an incident in which a rat appeared in the standing areas where the audience was. It was the day of filming the concert DVD of all days. Both the audience at the venue and EXO members were surprised by this. Kai mentioned that the rat who came to the concert may be ‘Ratatouille,’ and the fans later said that Remy (The name of the rat in the movie ‘Ratatouille’) came to see EXO’s concert. It is a very cute way to think of it.

 

On the last day of the concert, Xiumin who came out on a vacation from the military showed up among the audience wearing an outfit that goes with the dress code. The fans who missed Xiumin all watched him and shed happy tears inside.

Fans also enjoyed the concert to their might no less than the members of EXO. The seating area was inevitably full with hot air because it was a concert held in the middle of the summer, but we were all moved once again by the EXO members who showed sincere concern for the fans who are getting tired from the heat.

 

EXO-SC unit’s ‘What a life’ album stage was first released in this concert as well. It was a very high-quality stage, making me think, ‘That is our EXO!’ I am personally a fan of BAEKHYUN, so the ‘UN Village’ stage from ‘City Lights’ album that was released recently was also very memorable.

 

On the concert stage, EXO promised with the fans that they will come back before the winter comes. It would be difficult to meet the full EXO for a while, but I would like to meet the new album with all the members soon. I’d like to wrap up this review by wishing the day will come soon.

 

(Group EXO held their 5th solo concert ‘EXO PLANET #5 - EXplOration’ a total of 6 times at Seoul Olympic Park KSPO DOME(Olympic Gymnastics Stadium) from July 19th to 28th. ‘EXO PLANET #5 - EXplOration’ drew about 15,000 audiences per show, and EXO met a total of about 90,000 fans during the concert.)
