EXO’s Kris Gives Up His “Cool City Guy” Image for Fried Chicken


The hottest boy group of 2013, EXO, has just entered the world of variety with their own variety show “EXO’s Show Time.” Those who have seen the pilot episode might already know, but one member in particular stood out with his hilarious image. That member is Kris, who throughout the show surprised the viewers with his funny comments and entertaining skills.

The first episode of MBC Everyone’s “EXO’s Show Time” aired on November 28, and since the announcement of the show, fans have been excited to see how the members will leave behind their charismatic stage image and turn into humorous young men. They did not fail to meet the viewers’ expectation, and despite everyone bringing much laughter to the table, Chinese member Kris left an unforgettable impression with his inability to resist fried chicken.

From the beginning, Kris tried to maintain his image of a “cool city guy” by looking unamused and keeping his cool whenever the other members burst into laughter. When it was time to take turns showing a happy pose, Kris remained seated until the very end and seemed to not care. However, he surprised everyone by posing in a chic but funny way, and the room was quickly filled with laughter.

Soon all of the members were challenged to eat one whole fried chicken by themselves. Kris said, “Chicken is not my style,” and explained how he does not usually eat fried and greasy food. He simply kept staring at and smelling the chicken, maintaining his chic image. But seeing others enjoy the food, he could not resist the chicken for too long. He slowly began to empty his plate, and the members quickly noticed the sudden change in Kris’ attitude, teasing him playfully. The viewers could not help but fall for his charm when he said, “Chicken is delicious. Chicken and being a cool city guy are not related to each other,” trying to make up a cute excuse for the bones piling up in front of him.

“EXO’s Show Time” airs every Thursday at 6pm.
