- Chen: Baekhyun and I auditioned at the same audition and came into the company together. We were the only two that made it till the end and who would fall, we said, even if each gets chosen, let’s encourage the other. We thought that they would only choose one person. However, he came in three days before me. At the time we talked a lot but I thought, there is such a kid in this world. He talks well and even his personality is great. Chanyeol has good sociability but Baekhyun does as well. Even till now, he is the friend that I relate the most to and he is amongst one of the members that I can tell everything to.
- Kai: When we were living as trainees, one moment the both of them entered and I thought my ears were going to burst. It was quiet and peaceful, but as the two of them came in, it was no joke.
- Chanyeol: Usually when one comes in the company, it is possible that they cower, but when they were taking their profile shots, I thought they were a trainee of 4~5 years. They spoke that much.
- Baekhyun: When we were auditioning together, seeing Jongdae (Chen’s real name), I saw that he would relieve his throat with high notes. I thought that he would become my biggest rival, till the end he lasted, and in the end we were up against one another. Because Chen sings well, I always ask him to show me and to teach me. He’s kind and sings well, and maybe it’s because we came in together, he is a friend that my heart goes out to. When we were split apart and he was promoting as EXO-M, I missed him, but I’m happy that we’re doing it together. I want to promote as twelve members EXO forever.
