On December 29, EXO held the first of three encore concerts of their “EXO PLANET #5 – EXplOration” tour at the KSPO Dome, Olympic Park, in Seoul. Tonight’s concert included a different setlist compared to the previous 28 shows the group held throughout Asia in 2019.
Special guests in the audience included members of Chanyeol’s and Jongin’s family, acoustic-folk singer Go Youngbae, whom Chen became close to while filming the Heart4U reality series, as well as our dear D.O. himself! Kyungsoo wore an army green shirt in accordance with tonight’s dress code – red and green – and trended at No. 3 worldwide on Twitter.
X-EXO were the ones to open the concert with “Obsession”, followed by another track from the new album, “Jekyll”, finally revealing the choreography for this superior B-side. Baekhyun surprised the fans with his bright blue hair, and Chanyeol went back to dark brown.
