Maknae Monday: EXO’s Sehun

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.

Oh Sehun is here to wreck your bias list. Resistance is futile.

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:

To this:

Time has been very good to you, young man.

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?

tumblr_mgpqhfngn41qlxtqco2_r2_250
Aww, qt.

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:

“What you doing, Sehun hyung?”

Bubble tea.

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.”

Who’s Your “Scarlet Heart Ryeo” Sub Unit?

scarlet-heart-500x384

So we watch a lot of K Dramas y’all …. A LOT of Kdramas…. at this point I’m guessing even more than most South Koreans do (I’ve found out through PAINFULLY awkward conversations; most recently where I ended up explaining what a flower boy was <cringe>)0d41beac75d16859ba7b1a0c66d32595ed3ec2a8_hq

But since our hearts and souls are founded in Kpop all of our drama conversations come back to one essential topic… WHO ARE THEY IN THE KPOP GROUP HIERARCHY?!

At the moment we are obsessed with Scarlet Heart: Ryeo

tumblr_od41ia5rtd1qmeijao2_400

But there are so many Flower Princes in this show that we couldn’t pick just one favorite man. So we’ve decided we get a Prince Subunit! (limit 3)
tumblr_inline_o04uwomugx1td2xvr_500

Here are our choices for favorite leading men in this show. Let us know who your “SHR” dream subunit would be! #SHRSubUnit

FIRST SPOT GOES TO….

Prince #10 Wang Eun:

tumblr_ocf6msiiwg1r9f1l9o9_r1_400tumblr_octpzyg71r1qkiilno2_250

  • The Maknae- oh little Baekhyun is fabulous as the younger brother so clearly Wang Eun is the Maknae!

tumblr_ocf6msiiwg1r9f1l9o10_400

  • Moodmaker- Who hasn’t laughed at his playful antics and charm! He’s the member that’s just so adorable you don’t really remember if he’s the singer the dancer or what else besides just being too cute and positive.

tumblr_od3l301ti71svr2keo2_400

2nd SPOT GOES TO…

Prince #8 Wang Wook!!

tumblr_ocqc9dpdf81vpmpmko7_r1_500

  • The Leader – like in so many groups the leader isn’t always the oldest but the one most willing to keep the dongsaengs in line and the hyungs happy.
  • Lead Vocals- I mean really some of those soulful longing looks he gives though! Only a true crooner could get away with them!

tumblr_od13y6edno1vcss73o2_400

  • Visual-Now Mama B has considered Kang Ha-Neul to be the Flower Boy to end all Flower Boys ever since the first time she watched Heirs; so this one was an obvious choice… That jawline though!

tumblr_obvmeszclz1vx5wqno1_1280

  • Also the one you always root for to get a solo but never quite gets picked. With that being said it looks like they start fighting over the girl in the next episode so #4 Fighting!!!

FINAL SPOT IN OUR SUBUNIT GOES TO…

Prince #4 Wang So 

tumblr_od4drj4zdq1r3hugwo3_540

  • Lead Rapper- I mean really who else could he be? Hitting us hard with the rap lines but then unexpectedly raw, real and angsty getting us in the feels. (Cmon Oma just give the boy a hug!!)

001-a

  • Lead Dancer- Those sword moves and coordination make him the ideal lead for the rest of the unit!

tumblr_ocfbzf3jlu1s8t96qo6_r1_400tumblr_ocfbzf3jlu1s8t96qo5_r1_400

  • Token Rebel- Every group has that member that you know just doesn’t care about the spotlight as much as the others. He just wants to sit in the corner, make music and take the eyeliner off (think Suga and Woozi).

  • Basically we’ve decided that our Prince #4 is Tao in Black White. He’s left his crazy big family behind but still wants that recognition from them that he’s alive and doing well.

001_1841aaf9-98bd-4cce-9082-b5ee101b1368

  • And of course he’s the most famous member of the group which means he gets the girl… Everytime… No matter how douche-like he is in the beginning he always seems to come around and get you at the end!

tumblr_ocfbzf3jlu1s8t96qo3_r1_400

Well that’s our SHR subunit! Let’s talk! Which Princes make your subunit list and who are they in the group!
