Baekhyun of EXO subunit CBX certainly has one of the sweetest personalities along with the rest of the exo members. Fans appeared distraught and mourned CBX’s loss after Mcountdown declared TWICE as winners due to their higher digital streaming value. This was obvious throughout twitter,tumblr and facebook,although nobody blamed the girl group and owned up their “mistake” for not streaming continuously.
A closer look indicates that most of the fans were invested in voting for EXO on MAMA and securing their first position on Star Cheer chart against other groups,which they succeeded in,obviously. I’m pretty sure Baekhyun is aware of that and is infinitely grateful to his fans for it.
Inspite of their loss on the show TWICE against TWICE,CBX had the highest selling album of the week and one of the most successful debut as a kpop subunit,securing no.1 positions on all music charts and bagging 1st position on Billboard World Album chart and China’s YinYueTai’s V chart.
Back to the discussion of Baekhyun reassuring his fans…..well. Yesterday on CBX’s fansign event at Music Core,fans were apologetic towards the members for not being able to make them win,a seriously sweet habit exhibited by normally exo fans in general towards the members. Baekhyun,Chen and Xiumin profusely tried to cheer them up by saying that it’s okay and that it’s just a number. That they were happy to meet them in person.Humorously he commented that exo has already bagged several prizes in the past,noting exo ls silence Chen said while laughing that fans are really greedy for exo to win awards. Baekhyun said that maybe a lot of them have entered late into the fandom,hence the silence.
In contrast Baekhyun bagged the first place for AAA nomination as best actor,while exo secured the first place for singer category. They also trended throughout November as the IT group of kpop.
Check out some of tweets below from fans after CBX lost.
