EXO’s Baekhyun Opens Up YouTube Channel!
On May 16, 2019, Baekhyun shocked Internet users, especially EXO-Ls, as he shared news his new YouTube channel on his Instagram feed. In that post, he uploaded a screenshot of the channel page that still didn’t show any videos yet, showing that his channel is totally brand new. Right after seeing this good news, EXO-Ls were using their fingers as fast as they could to subscribe to their favorite vocalist in EXO, Baekhyun.
Not long after that, Baekhyun finally uploaded his very first video. What was his first video like? Are you curious about what kind of video he uploaded for the first time?
Baekhyun uploaded his first video to his YouTube Channel on May 16, 2019, the same day as he promoted it on his Instagram on for the first time. On the short video that has “Baekhyun’s VLOG (mild americano/seatbelt/messy hair/beginner YouTuber/fake dimple/super short vlog…)” as the title, Baekhyun showed us his daily life as he went out to see his friends, had a coffee, and even he shot the time he was riding in his car. Such boyfriend material!
The way he showed up without heavy makeup or having his hair done made fans go crazy, as he looked so natural. Even the fact that Baekhyun shot a vlog that only focused on him helped fans imagine that we are the girlfriend that has a date with him.
In this video, Baekhyun had a meet-up with his friend as they went to grab a coffee at some cafe, but he still respected his friend’s privacy because he didn’t show his friend’s face for the whole time. He also didn’t record his conversation with his friend, to keep his life private. What a good guy!
Baekhyun ended the video that still had no intro or outro as he went back to his house after he finished the meet-up with his friend. On a short video that only lasted 1:45 minutes, Baekhyun also apologized to fans on the video description section, he wrote it like this, in English, “Such an indoor guy! I finally went out to meet friends and had coffee time. This is my first video shoot for VLOG, so it is far from perfect…. But! I’ll be back to show you my upgraded skill.”
Aw.. Baekhyun you actually didn’t have to apologize. We fans are okay with whatever content you’re going to make on your YouTube channel. Even the comment section didn’t show any complaints or hate comments that criticized Baekhyun for having a very short video or whatever. The comments were showing support and giving love to their precious Byun Baekhyun because that’s the only thing that matters. As long as we can still see Baekhyun despite his busy schedule, we’re totally fine and even feel thankful.
1 Million Subscribers
Can you believe that Baekhyun already had 1 million subscribers right after he uploaded his first video? Well, I can’t, but it happened anyway. Baekhyun is just so powerful, and EXO-Ls keep on supporting him, no matter what. On the second video, Baekhyun put the 1 million subscribers as the part of the title, he wrote it as “[1M’ㅅ’!] Baekhyun’s VLOG (exercise/pink slippers/eating show of diet food/so hungry)” on the video title. It was as if Baekhyun also couldn’t believe that he already had a million subscribers within only two days of releasing the first video.
Baekhyun also wrote a really nice message thanking the fans who had subscribed to him and fans that showed him a supportive message. He wrote, “Already 1 million subscribers!! Amazing! I think I should work harder! Thank you so much! I’ll work hardest!! So I prepared a surprise gift for you~^^“. The message showed that Baekhyun is thankful to the fans, and he promised to work harder and create more amazing videos in the future.
Talking about surprise gifts, Baekhyun posted a new video. In that video, Baekhyun showed fans about how he exercises, although he hasn’t done it in a while. He also listened to Chen’s song, called “Beautiful Goodbye”, as he practiced with a personal trainer. Baekhyun said that he did that to warm up his throat. After that, Baekhyun did an eating show, as he was eating a banana and diet food that he was talking about on the video title. He suddenly set the sound to ASMR since he was doing an eating show.
Baekhyun wrote on the description box, “I have resumed exercising after a long break! It is really hard to exercise since it came after a long rest…. I worn out completely. Please enjoy watching 뀽튜브 today! Then click the LIKE button and subscribe please ^^ I love you 3000”
The fact that Baekhyun used the term that Morgan Stark used to show how he loved the fans is so cute, isn’t it?? We love you 3000 Baekhyun!
