Chanyeol’s Birthday Celebration in 2013
A year after EXO’s debut, on November 27, 2013, was EXO’s ‘Happy Virus’ ,Chanyeol’s, birthday. The name “Happy Virus” was given to Chanyeol because he was one of the most cheerful members of the group. When they debuted, in every interview EXO had, Chanyeol was always a member that made the atmosphere crowded and exciting.
“No matter how difficult the situation is, I will still see from the positive side and always smile,” Chanyeol said at the time.
At the beginning of his debut, Chanyeol, himself, often introduced himself as EXO’s ‘Happy Virus’.
On MBC’s EXO’s Showtime, episode 3, which coincided with Chanyeol’s birthday, the members split up to buy presents for him. Kai and Sehun went to a convenience store, and Sehun asked Kai. “Do you have a wallet? I have only one card, but I don’t have a card.”
At the convenience store, Sehun and Kai saw lens cleaning liquids, bands, cotton swabs, woolen gloves, etc. Not only Kai and Sehun, Baekhyun and Chen were finding shopping a challenge. They were debating buying Chanyeol a jacket they thought was priced at 24,000 won then realized it was actually 240,000 won, which left them shocked. The other members split up to buy Chanyeol presents, too. The netizens watching EXO Showtime responded with “Exo Show Time, Too Funny” and “Exo Show Time, Everyone seems to have a lot of fun“.
