Park Chanyeol, EXO’s main rapper tattooed ‘L-1485’ in his arms that symbolizes his love and EXOL’s birthday. EXO and EXOL is not just an idol and fandom relationship but it is a FAMILY.
[+244, -5] That’s why EXO-Ls listen to EXO. Whenever there’s a bad controversy, an EXO member will post and say he knows what’s going on and that he wants us to calm down. When it was an anniversary of EXO-L fandom, they posted a pair of baby shoes that they wore for the first time and congratulated us. They also talked about their everyday life a lot on V app, although they don’t do it anymore. I’m so thankful when they post on From EXO and say they miss us.
[+81, -2] EXO thanks us because we comfort them when there’s a controversy. We thank EXO because they also comfort us back despite of their own controversies. They mention us everyday, I feel so loved ㅠㅠ
during the dance break when exo-l's were chanting E-X-O E-X-O exo chanted "EXO-L EXO-L" the best relationship ???❤? pic.twitter.com/AKMCiMT5h7
