EXO Travel Variety Show 'Travel The World on Exo's Ladder' S2 Teaser [subbed]

source: EXO 2018subs

just a lot of yelling at each other and minseok trying to kill kyungsoo. fyi: this subbing team did season 1 and have decided that for this season they'll do a weekly upload compiling the 5 episodes that aired that week, viewing/discussion posts?

oooh, I hope they bring it. Their music is pretty much my fav, so I hope they can bring the variety worthy of it. (I don't need them to be laughter kings, just interactive and seemingly real.)

Exo seems to have relatively little variety, excited to get this!

they were a mess on exo showtime (they were a mess of a group in general at that point so not surprising) but it seemed to make SM shy away from letting them do a lot more as a group. it's odd they'd give one of the few groups who really can't travel well because of fans a travel concept but I hope they got to see some of Taiwan.

I didn't think they were a mess in showtime, I just thought it was clear that they're weren't really friends. Did they get that bad of press for it?

They were all pretty much friends but with such a big group of people they were kinda cliquey. I don't believe they got bad press but a lot of people said they were boring.

I loved that show. They also hadn't really done much variety at that point so it's understandable that they were awkward

It is totally understandable they were all awkward. I don't really think they were all friends, but it's hard to all be friends in a relatively short amount of time with so many people .... doesn't mean they hated each other either.
vintage_boom 14th-Jan-2019 06:58 pm (UTC)
yea that's what I meant as far as a mess. it was painfully obvious how little time they had to work on group dynamics and some clearly didn't care.

Oh? And who would you say didn't care about working on group dynamics?

I should rewatch, if for nothing else than seeing Xiumin's evolution. I kind of miss the cheeky boy who forgot to talk on camera....

Most obvious on camera was Kris. It's not that I think he didn't care about exo/his career at the time just...he wasn't super into doing that show or anything variety wise unless it specifically suited his own interests. Some of the K members also rly didn't seem to care about whether or not they were close to or even nice to M members in the same way they were with K.

and I don't think it was necessarily entirely the members fault...SM really scrambled to put the two groups together for Wolf/Growl and while it paid off for exo's success idt it sat well with a lot of them in the beginning sharing their group role with another person. It's definitely a completely different vibe seeing NCT deal with similar situation going from pre-debut as a unit to integrating new members on the fly. Prob cuz SM were upfront about their concept from the get go but idk I've definitely thought too long on this since I got into them after the kris and luhan left and watching a lot of their back content in one go knowing what happens.

and now i'm just procrastinating from work writing this dissertation. thank you for coming to my TEDtalk.

I liked your Ted Talk! And I enjoy how everyone has different interpretations. Admittedly, I didn't find Kris all that disengaged, but more he wasn't down for certain things (like being pushed into the ocean a la Suho). I did have some poor impressions of some of the members, particularly from K, but since then those impressions have largely improved. Mashing the teams together had to cause tension, and the fact that they couldn't hide it perfectly probably says something good about them as people.

LOL!!!! I support your TEDTalk!

Exo is the perfect group for this show format. They're all so damn loud and the ones who aren't have good reactions

Love that Ksoo is wearing his glasses

Kyungsoo is such a grumpy old man.
I love him!!

I mean just them go crazy it works for Got7. I really enjoyed their mini show on Vlive so I’m sure this will be good too. Can’t wait!

I hope this will be as entertaining as the exo arcade show, which was the first exo group show in a while that didn't bore me. I'll watch enough to learn why Minseok was strangling Ksoo, at least.

This already looks hilarious. I love how exo's group dynamic has changed over the years, it seems like they've gotten a lot closer.
