While it’s usual for fans to go all out for their idol’s birthdays or anniversaries, EXO-Ls celebrate each other just as passionately, and as always, Chinese EXO-Ls take the cake for the most beautiful anniversary projects.

This isn’t the first time Chinese EXO-Ls have created gorgeous exhibits for EXO-Ls to celebrate their love for EXO. On EXO’s 10th anniversary earlier this year, China Baidu EXO Bar recreated iconic sets for EXO-Ls to visit.

Yet, for all the extravagance, EXO-Ls still humbly give back to their community, following in EXO’s footsteps.

As time continues, the bond between EXO and EXO-Ls only grows stronger. Until the day EXO and EXO-Ls can sing together again and forever after that, we wish the best for both the idols and the fans.
EXO and EXOLs singing wait together is the most precious thing ever ❤️ pic.twitter.com/90Ix5skIrb
