Here’s the very first music video remade on EXO’s new variety show EXO 90: 2014!
This new music video of H.O.T’s Hope features EXO-K’s Chanyeol as the lead as well as SMROOKIES Yuta and Jaehyun (I think).
The vocals were provided by EXO-M’s Chen, EXO-K’s Sehun and Kai, and a few of the SMROOKIES!
We’re so glad that EXO and these new SM kids are covering these K-Pop classics and giving them a modern feel.
The music video looks well made and Chanyeol actually looks like a nice, big brother to these two youngins.
We can’t wait for the next episode of EXO 90: 2014 to air.
We do wish that EXO had more involvement in the MV. It would’ve been nice if Suho and Baekhyun’s vocals were included in the song too, as well as Luhan’s.
Since the SMROOKIES are only making guest appearances in this new series, perhaps we’ll see more involvement from EXO later on.
Side note: Don’t hate on the SMROOKIES just for being in EXO 90: 2014. Sure, SM Entertainment is using EXO to promote them, but all entertainment companies use their senior artists to promote their rookies. Big Bang did it for WINNER, 2PM did it for GOT7, so it’d make sense that EXO would help promote their labelmates. It’s not the end of the world EXO-L, and you should be supportive of EXO’s labelmates.
