Happy birthday to Kim Jongdae, a boy with a golden voice and a golden heart, a boy who’s full of life, full of love, and full of laughter. You put a smile on many people’s faces, and I really love you for that. Here’s to another great year ♥
Translated from the Thai dubs, watch from 0:46 to 3:17 for Suho’s pep-talk
(at the start they’re just grumbling why everyone else is slow and isn’t there yet, before the scene fades to the whole group being there).
Suho: We have good news, we’re going to have a concert tour soon (everyone cheers).
For me, up till today, I’ll be truthful that it’s been really tiring. You all know, right, how many years I’ve been a trainee?
Baekhyun: Almost 8 years.
Suho: Yup, I’ve been a trainee for almost 8 years. Every day I was in the practice room, till it was almost like my 2nd home. (Xiumin and Lu Han nods)
I’m really happy that Exo-K and M finally get to be combined together, and I’m accepted as the group leader. I know that you’ve all been tired, and sometimes even hide away to cry, almost every day while we had to practice and sing and so many other things non-stop, so tired till we were exhausted and disappointed. But once we debut, it felt like we were even more tired, hoping we’d get the recognition to help us look forward to stay strong.
Sometimes when it would get so bad that I would feel like giving up and going back to my normal life. But then I think of all of you, who have been together in this - you’re probably all as tired as me. Our Chinese members, who had to leave their homes from so far away to come here, you feel lonely and miss your homes. All of us miss our homes, miss our families, and it’s been a long time that we haven’t been back to see them.
But every time I see all of you together, I think we’re like a family of our own. And even though I might not be a good group leader, probably even a terrible one, but we will take care of each other always.
(everyone applauds and cheers)
He then tells everyone that they’ll split up to practice and meet together again later in the evening (or night). And tells them to practice hard, practice well.
