- I heard that SM put so much effort in EXO to make a daebak group... 

- The number of EXO teasers were just ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

- I heard that EXO did 100 days of promotion because it takes 100 days until the teasers spread in China

- Yeah the girl group debut seemed so random

- I thought EXO was gonna disappear after the hundreds of teasers

- At least Red Velvet's debut song is public friendly. EXO got an SMP song

- We've seen Red Velvet members since they were Rookies so they don't seem new though ㅋㅋ

- Shinee also debuted only 3 days after the announcement
