Olympics closing ceremony conferences and Exo related Olympic news

Exo's Growl and apparently what is now being referred to by some sites as CL's "I am the best" 2NE1 who? I thought I read somewhere Exo will only be performing two songs. My guess the other one is Power since they said in the conference they view the Power song as an gift to the Olympic performers. Something like that.

Xiumin was stalked to spotted at a store that sells official Olympics merchandise.

I love it when my cashier takes creeper shots of me.

It was said that despite being stalked he was in a very good mood and moved around freely (surejan.gif that's why he had security with him)

Saesang's being Saesang creeped and spied what he got, pictured above. He spent over $500 usd. (and yes that is a beer and chicken fridge magnet..why do I stan him?) Reports from the workers, to further fuel the craziness, let everyone know he used a debit card. Knets praised him for this. (I guess since he's rich and didn't use a credit card? idek it's knet's guys)

I'm so happy for them. For these local, undiscovered talents to be given a global platform is such a golden opportunity (no pun intended) for them. Don't fuck it up!

I think a lot of stations are riding this newest wave of kpop out and playing stuff randomly, or when ppl request it. I had never heard BTS locally until recently while at Walmarts of all places. It's surreal for sure.

toooooooo excited for this - they're gonna kill it. I have a free Sunday so gonna carve some time out to watch it live.

suho being the only one wearing the glasses looks so funny.

power would be a good song for the olympics.

if cl does do IATB (and she will, cause lbr what solo song of her's could she do?) i'm going to be legitimately sad. i'm still not over how 2ne1 ended.
mewgical 23rd-Feb-2018 04:44 pm (UTC)
He made those glasses a meme. I hope it follows him forever.

She should follow it up with It Hurts, because that's the only way to sum up the fandom. jk. I wonder if she will have a second number. What other song could she do?
gathyou 23rd-Feb-2018 05:09 pm (UTC)
I really hope it's Power haha it fits the Olympics mood and the performance is fun!
Picking I Am the Best is a good choice. [Spoiler (click to open)]French TV also spoke about CL doing Gangnam Style but idk how reliable they are, they could be relaying rumors or mixing up songs (though they didn't make mistakes when they shortly showed BtoB a few days ago)

What are those fridge magnets lmao. But the little tiger mascots are so cute, I'm jealous!

I'm going to need people on here to hook me up with livestreaming links for like....BBC or whatever network in Korea is airing this bc NBC is actual fucking garbage and I don't want to 1. wait til they show it SUNDAY NIGHT US TIME, 2. Deal with them saying shit like "due to time constraints we can't show it all" and 3. Hear whatever dumb commentary I know they will have over the performance....

they all looked so handsome and I'm really excited for what they have planned for sunday. I hope they aren't too exhausted since they're doing cons in Japan today and tomorrow.

also Chanyeol added another tattoo to his arm. this boy is going to have a full sleeve before he enlists.

I've been so tired these days I didn't understand well some info on FB.
There was a list of songs and I thought they were gonna perform all those 8 songs, but I strongly believe now those were for the streaming project going on. -_-
But a girl can dream.
daynr 23rd-Feb-2018 09:14 pm (UTC)
when does this all occur real time in the US? I'm now reverse confused about timing.

Xiumin looks good, they did a nice natural job with that makeup. Also, I WAS THERE THAT DAY AND DIDN'T SEE HIM.

(but SBS asked to interview me, and I declined.)
vintage_boom 23rd-Feb-2018 09:25 pm (UTC)
It starts at 6AM EST/ 3AM PST
klauses 23rd-Feb-2018 09:18 pm (UTC)

He is so embarrassing but his love for girl groups makes up for it.
hillando 24th-Feb-2018 02:14 am (UTC)
wow over 500USD I'm not surprised, one of those hanbok plushies alone costs like 100USD (110,000krw)

gonna watch the ceremony on tv and drool over kai haha
smilla_sini 24th-Feb-2018 04:46 am (UTC)
I've just found out Martin Garrix will accompany one of the stages, but it's not what surprised me. Google says he's 21. Like, HOW??? Did he start at like 15 or what.

Those glasses remind me of that meme of the guy wearing them over his regular shades. Iconic.

Also will Lay be there?
mewgical 24th-Feb-2018 05:59 am (UTC)
dk I doubt Lay will be there. There is a secret guest performing and some people have speculated it could be him. But most people are saying it will be Psy.
trancexperiment 24th-Feb-2018 04:30 pm (UTC)
