Stepping out as the second EXO solo performance of the night, Baekhyun opened his set with his debut song, “UN Village” with a surprising special guest. After several seductive glances at the camera and sensual body rolls against his women backup dancers, the mischievous “Avenger of K-Pop” was joined by his fellow SuperM member, Mark, who became a surprising rap feature on “UN Village.”
This wouldn’t be the first time the pair have teamed up for the song. The first collab ironically happened during the SMTOWN concert in Tokyo back in 2019. But now, officially ringing in 2021, Mark and Baekhyun spent their time on stage giving each other playful smiles as their incredibly addictive chemistry and charisma bounced off of one and another and into their hearts of EXO-Ls, NCTzens, and “Novas” (SuperM’s unofficial fan name) all over the world. Have we mentioned that they were practically twinning with their matching pearl blue/turquoise outfits? A beautiful friendship born out of a supergroup.
Baekhyun finished his set with the delicious ear-worm that is “Candy.” His fun-loving attitude and sass truly shined through with this number and still has us yearning for “pop rocks, strawberry, and bubblegum” all the way into the new year.
