PH EXO-Ls turn the Big Dome into a ‘Rodeo Station’ during EXO-SC Manila visit

It was a night to remember for PH EXO-Ls as EXO subunit EXO-SC, composed of members Oh Sehun and Park Chanyeol, put together a performance for their fans who have waited so long to see them again in the country.

EXO-SC kicked off their Philippine visit with a presscon at the Quantum Sky View, Gateway Mall 2, which happened an hour before their actual Fancon Tour at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

They had previously invited their Filipino fans to come join them as they return to Manila for a one-night engagement.

Chanyeol and Sehun took turns in answering questions from the audience, which was comprised of fans and representatives of the media.

Here are photos from the presscon:

It can be remembered that the boys had sold out their show on the very first day of the official ticket selling, in part due to PH-EXO L’s excitement for their Philippine comeback. In return, EXO-SC fired up the stage during their fancon with some performances from their “What a Life” and “1 Billion Views” albums. They began their set with their hit song “What a Life,” which undoubtedly hyped up all EXO-Ls inside The Big Dome, followed by a performance of “Borderline”, “Fly Away”, and “1 Billion Views,” where PH EXO-Ls slayed MOON’s part.

PH EXO-Ls were thrilled as the duo made sure to catch up with their Filipino fans–they played games and even designed their own tumbler which was given to two lucky fans. In one of the segments, Chanyeol sang “Hawak Kamay”, which most PH EXO-Ls will remember as the OPM song that EXO performed way back in 2013 for their Dream K-pop Fantasy concert.

After his enchanting “Hawak Kamay” performance, fans requested for one more song and Chanyeol, being the best boy that he is, granted EXO-L’s request. He once again requested the guitar and decided to perform the iconic song “Creep” which he covered from 2017, which has had a huge impact to their fans.

Sehun, on the other hand, really showed his dancing skills where he gamely played the random performance bit–fans enjoyed his bit performances of EXO’s iconic choreographies such as Love Shot, Growl, and The Eve. He was eventually joined by Chanyeol to dance Love Me Right.

Before singing their last song, Chanyeol and Sehun took photos with their fans and to their surprise, EXO-Ls flashed a very special surprise video for the duo.

They ended their Fancon with a performance of fan favorite songs, “We Young” and “Rodeo Station,” further hyping up the fans enough to get them back to do an encore of “Just us 2.”

EXO-SC ended their Fancon Tour with a promise to their Filipino fans that they will return to the Philippines, this time with all EXO members in tow. This event was organized and made possible by PULP Live World.
