Chen compliments 10cm on the demo, saying how much he liked it. He confesses how he’s been a listener since 10cm’s first album, while 10cm becomes extremely bashful. While awkward at first, they seem much more comfortable an hour later while writing the lyrics of their duet together.

Who would have expected this collaboration would come to life so quickly?
On October 26, SM Entertainment revealed through an unexpected video that EXO’s Chen and 10cm would be releasing a track together for SM STATION 2.
Earlier this year in September, Chen had revealed that he would like to collaborate with the now one-man band while guesting on a radio show. Soon after, 10cm expressed his shock and willingness to collaborate through an Instagram post.
In the released video clip, 10cm’s Kwon Jung Yeol pretends that he is driving and listening to the radio when he hears Chen talking about wanting to work with him for the first time. Afterwards, he calls his manager to boast about what happened, but his manager just replies, “Why would EXO collaborate with you? I’m hanging up.”
Stay tuned for more information about this future SM STATION release!
