(Rumor) Exo to debut new subunit in the first half of the year with Chanyeol as a confirmed member

This is only a rumor for now. What's your dream Exo-subunit? And what songs would they have?

My guess is this is Chanyeol and Sehun or Chanyeol-D.O. With Xiumin enlisting CBX will be out of commission and both Kai and Baekhyun have hinted at doing solos. ChanHun both have huge Chinese fanbases and already had We Young 8much like cbx had collabs before being announced) whole ChanD.O was highlighted in the recent Knowing Bros episode.

A Kai-Lay performance unit is a pipe dream but would be so cool.NGL my dream subunit would be this batch. Twenty-Four still bangs

D.O. looks like he has no interest in his singing career anymore (besides doing the annual exo stuff) tbh...

i wouldn't call it confirmed unless it's from SM

I don't want SKY but I also really want fans to stop talking about SKY so I'm conflicted on who I'd want.

kai station or solo tho plz and thanks he needs to be able to do the actual complicated choreo he's capable of with other dancers who can keep up for one in a release. my dreams of a taemin kai special unit are likely to never happen so.

I can't remember where I saw it lol, but I thought I recall seeing something about Chanyeol, Kai and Kyungsoo being in a subunit. Oh yeah, I think one of them actually said it. Maybe they were joking, but it's not like they've never dropped hints before... :x

Tbh, I'd like that subunit bc the three of them have complimentary voices.

I know Chanyeol and Kyungsoo have talked about wanting to work together but I never heard about Kai being added to this miss so I'm intrigued. Now that you mentioned it, they really do have complimentary voices. They're the three deepest voices in EXO I believe. I think it could work as a subunit, especially since Kyungsoo wasn't in CBX. So this to me would be the next best thing.
aeries_amethyst 9th-Jan-2019 11:28 pm (UTC)
Are we finally getting that ChanSoo subunit? Give it to me SM! *O*

Wouldn't be opposed to a ChanHunKai unit but I'm not feeling that right now. I'm guessing that would be a more hip-hop based unit. I'd rather get that Kai solo cuz we have been waiting too long for this! OTL

I want Kyungsoo in a unit but I don't think he has the time honestly.
I'm thinking it will be Chanyeol and Sehun

Dream unit is CBX and Kyungsoo haha or chingu line and Kyungsoo.

i'd be interested in a chansoo subunit, but if it happens i just hope it's not sky. i want jongin to be able to dance challenging choreos and he wouldn't be able to do that in a unit with chanyeol and sehun. he'd be best solo. the only acceptable unit would be kaibaek but that's a pipe dream
aeries_amethyst 10th-Jan-2019 02:26 am (UTC)
I know Sehun is a lead dancer and all but I really just can't get into his dancing. He always looks a little too stiff to me and like he's trying to count his steps. But it could also be his facial expressions or lack thereof.

Jongin and Yixing for sure have the best groove and technique, that's why they are the main dancers I suppose. Baekhyun joining the dance line got me shook! He's getting all these dance solos now and I am living! That KaiBaek dance duet is something I didn't even realize I wanted until now. I can dig it! XD

Minseok is supposed to be in dance line but I feel like we don't really see him get much spotlight in that regard any more or maybe that's just me *shrugs*

please with more Kyungsoo singing, particularly in his lower registry. Let him bring us the sexy.

I have heard for ages about this Kai solo .... Admittedly I'm not a Kai believer, but I'm not coming from that place in this question: does he have any real experience performing live and commanding the stage with his voice? It has to be nerve-wracking to do (just ask your lady, Kai, and she's supposedly a vocal.)

(I would have asked the same thing about Xiumin before CBX, but I think being in that subunit let him build that skill.)

well kai doesn’t even have a solo station at this point. he’s the only exo member without any solo or sub unit material so no one can say for sure what he can do on his own with a solo vocal performance. but that can be said for a lot of members of idol groups before they strike out solo (besides obvious main vocals). I think everyone was surprised taemin was the first shinee solo when you had jjong and onew as main vocals.

I also don’t think the main issue people took with jennie’s solo was her vocal performance but rather just stage presence in general. I know not everyone is into how kai performs, but he has no problem commanding a stage:

also while he’ll never be chenbaeksoo in terms of vocal ability, he’s made some very big improvements over the last few years from working with a vocal trainer. so even if he doesn’t have the best vocals in the industry (he doesn’t), I think his improvement along with stage presence and performance will make for a strong solo.

kyungsoo imo has the best voice in exo and i wish it was showcased more but since he's so busy i doubt he'd be in this subunit. one could hope.

I don't really care about another exo subunit, one way or the other.

What I did wish is SM would take a change and have subunits between the SM artis and groupst. My personal dream subunit wish is a subunit called xstcy (pronounced ecstasy) and they would cover or parody shitty 90's boy bands. Line up for xstcy would be xiumin, shindong, taemin, changmin, and yunho. this is in no way me trying to shoehorn Xiumin into TVXQ...absolutely not...

I like the name, especially if stripper versions of the boys come out to dance. Though the inclusion of Shindong in here seems random .... though he could definitely sell a parody.

sub-units always make me conflicted for personal reasons tbh but anyway I'm really looking forward to a chansoo sub-unit or at least duet.
vintage_boom 10th-Jan-2019 01:46 am (UTC)
what makes you conflicted about sub-units? is it because of overworking?
yxerin 10th-Jan-2019 08:36 am (UTC)
can’t believe that my long dead 2k16 exo-l wish of a chansoo subunit might actually come true
chikage_chan 10th-Jan-2019 09:35 am (UTC)
Chansoo would be beautiful, but i'll keep my expectations very low
spread 10th-Jan-2019 02:20 pm (UTC)
Give us ChanSoo!!
sciencebottle 11th-Jan-2019 12:15 am (UTC)
I want a chansoo unit!! But if it was SKY I wouldn't be too mad either. I would love for Sehun to be given a platform to improve himself.
