EXO Xiumin (Kim Minseok) Member Profile, Facts, Ideal Type


Xiumin is one of the lead vocalists and lead dancers of EXO-M.

He and Chen are the two Korean members of the group.

They were chosen to be placed in EXO-M because even though they’re Korean, they both look Chinese.

Xiumin was rated by his fellow EXO-M members as the strongest, funniest, and cleanest member of the group.

He is known to be a prankster, and according to Luhan, he has a lot of cute/funny gestures.

He is the first to wake up in the morning, and the person who cleans the most, but that’s to be expected from the oldest member of the group.

While many members in EXO want to be world superstars later on in life, he wants to be an architect.
