With all the tumultuous EXO news as of late, the fandom has resorted to a semi-permanent state of roller coaster tycoon autopilot to accept both the boisterous growth and the slow deterioration of whom we formerly knew as EXO Planet. With constant upheaval of good news by bad news, and with hotly debated result of Tao’s withdrawal in the midst of “Love Me Right” success, some of us here on staff had a few bones to pick on the ever-questionable state of EXO. Will SM ever get it right? Do the boys not have what it takes? Will Sehun ever outgrow his retainers, and if not, will they too make a comeback?

Tune in to hear what me, Chelsea, and Hania had to dish about the state of affairs on EXO Planet, where the group needs to go from here to achieve SM-epic success, and how Xiumin persists to be a real underrated trend queen among peasants.

(FYI episode was recorded before Tao’s official withdrawal.)
