Maknae Monday is brought to you this week by our awesome subscriber Mama K! Thanks for putting this awesome ode to Sehun together! – Kpop Mamas
EXO is definitely slaying their most recent comeback. With the record-breaking release of their third album, Exa’ct, a world tour in the books, and now the repackage Lotto releasing last week, these boys are busy performing and promoting their little hineys off.
Speaking of, let’s meet the group’s handsome
and 4D maknae, Oh Sehun.
Just the facts:
Name: Oh Se Hun
Born: April 12, 1994 in Seoul, South Korea
Height: 183 cm (6ft)
Role: Lead dancer, lead rapper, sub vocalist, maknae
Unlike his fellow EXO mates, Sehun didn’t aspire to be an entertainer. At age eleven he was spotted by an SM agent while eating street food with his friends. His response? He ran away (his mother told him not to engage with strangers). The agent chased him for thirty minutes until she was able to convince him to talk to her. Officially cast by SM Entertainment in 2008, he debuted with EXO in 2012.
So somehow over the past four years Sehun went from this:
Despite his physical changes, Sehun’s personality has basically stayed the same. He’s all srs bsnss when it comes to performing.
Very srs bsnss.
Srsly, you can lighten up a little.
He’s known as the “sassy” maknae, which is sometimes difficult to see due to his somber expressions. But the sass escapes every once in awhile.
Better tuck that back in, young one.
Did I mention he’s full of aegyo?
His cheeky reputation is well earned, since he can’t stop pestering his hyungs:
But he’s still very much their maknae.
Sehun is a maknae of many moods. There’s this maknae:
And this one:
And also this one:
Then there’s this one:
Despite all this, he does love his hyungs:
Even when they resist:
But like I said, resistance is futile:
He also loves:
His Bichon Vivi.
And ice cream.
Sehun even has his own vocabulary.
As if being a dancing/rapping/singing/modeling/yeheting star wasn’t enough, he’s a terrific actor, stealing scenes left and right from his hyungs in EXO Next Door:
Next year his first movie, Cat Man, releases. And yes, he plays the Cat Man. Make of that what you will.
Above all, Sehun is known as a sensitive and caring guy. He can get a little emotional sometimes:
And doesn’t mind publicly sharing how he feels about his hyungs and fans:
It’s good being the maknae.
As one netizen wisely put it: “It’s Sehun’s world. We’re just living in it.”
