Chan-yeol Attending the Paris Fashion Week
Chan-yeol recently left for France to attend the prestigious Paris Fashion Week event. This EXO member is one of the specially invited guests at the fashion show owned by American fashion house Tommy Hilfiger.
On this occasion, Chan-yeol looked cool with the casual fashion suit he wore. This 26-year-old idol combined a white shirt with pants and a jeans jacket, which is definitely a Tommy Hilfiger outfit.
Besides that, Chan-yeol also looks cute with the round glasses he wears. But he managed to steal most of the attention when he was posing with Hollywood actress and singer Zendaya Coleman and Gigi Hadid.
Se-hun is Accused of Showing Support for Seung-ri
Big Bang’s Seungri is currently involved in a controversial issue. The 1990-born singer was named a suspect, to make it easier for the police to carry out investigations, in cases involving prostitution that dragged his name.
One of the idols known to be close to Seungri is Sehun, where Seungri once sent a coffee truck to the location of Dokgo Rewind, starring Sehun. Recently, EXO’s youngest member was thought to be encouraging Seungri to post on Instagram.
On Sunday, Sehun uploaded a photo in which he wore a dark sweater with a V-posing hand covering his smiling face. “Time will fix it. You will be happy,” Sehun wrote in his post caption.
Some netizens claim that this post of Sehun’s is intended for Seungri who is now having a hard time. Different from netters, fans actually believe that the post is for fans or for Sehun himself.
According to fans, Sehun’s post is most likely related to the issue on Weibo where he received scathing comments from fans of one of China’s idols until Sehun’s name appeared on Weibo hot search. Agreeing with the fans, the other netters pointed out that EXO’s haters took advantage of the opportunity to damage Sehun’s name.
“I’m not a fan of Sehun. But this is too powerful. Anti-fans must stop,” commented a netter. “I’m another idol fan, but Sehun really became a victim of rumors from the trolls. You trolls, stop,” said some other netters. “This is ridiculous haha,” a netter added. “They can’t accuse anyone who is close to Seungri. Stop,” added yet another.
In addition, fans also included other photos uploaded on Instagram, which showed that he was indeed hooked on posing V. Besides that, Sehun also often uploads encouraging posts.
