EXO’s Baekhyun, who debuted with the group in 2012 under SM Entertainment, has been in the K-Pop industry long enough to understand the highs and lows of being an idol.
Even throughout all the obstacles he as a person and as part of a group had to face, he was able to endure it because of the support of the fans. Here are ten different moments that show just how much he cares and loves his fans.
1. Tell me you love me again
After hearing “I love you” from the fans, he asks them to say it again. “I will always make you happy. I love you. Thank you. You love me? Tell me again. Me too.”

6. He wants us to remember his name
A fan asked Baekhyun to write down his favorite word so that she could use it as her Twitter nickname, but later when she saw what he wrote she couldn’t help but smile. He wrote, “지은이: 백현” which is a play on words using her and his names. The girl in the tweet (후기) says her name is 지은 (Jieun) and the “To.–” part also reads “To 지은“.
트위터 닉네임 하고 싶다고 좋아하는 단어 말해달랬는데 고민하다가 그럼 닉네임 만들어준다고 결심한듯 말하고 써준거 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 저거 못보고 할말하다가 자리와서 확인하고 너무 빵터졌다 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 튀터… 본명….. 괜찮겠지…..? ㅎ… pic.twitter.com/XzjvfDhdp6

A fan attended a fan sign meeting in 2019 and asked is they could call Baekhyun ‘sunbae’ just once. He agreed and they acted out a skit of him asking if they studied for their exam.

10. He hopes that people will like him
