When EXO held their concert in Bangkok, no one could have guessed that they would have been greeted by a sea of EXO-Ls all wearing yellow shirts and jeans.
The phenomenon, dubbed the “Baekhyun effect” by many, drew fans from around Thailand to EXO’s Super Live Concert in Bangkok who were all wearing yellow shirts and jeans.
This mysterious happenstance can actually be traced back to an interview conducted by Model Press with the EXO subunit EXO-CBX just last month.
During the interview, the members were asked what women’s summer fashion they were looking forward to and Baekhyun responded with the answer responsible for the Baekhyun effect.
For me, it’s jeans and yellow t-shirts. I think yellow t-shirts are really cute, so I’d also want to wear them. Please tuck your t-shirts into your pants at your waist!
Fans, of course, took this as a hint and went for it—and the concert was filled with all different shades of yellow.

Amazingly, this did not go unnoticed by Baekhyun who commented on the abundance of yellow shirts and told his fans that they’re all his ideal type!

EXO-L’s around were quick to pick up the story and poke a little fun at themselves with hilarious image edits comparing themselves to the “minions” from the film Despicable Me.
Fans even dug up photos of Chanyeol wearing yellow t-shirts for this cute joke.
