While there are members who have spent 6 years in training, there are others whose time as trainees was rather short, such as Baekhyun and Chen, who trained for 4 months each. For these two, the feeling was different. They said, “(More than winning first place), we were happiest when we entered SM as trainees because it was our childhood dream to become singers, and being accepted as trainees felt like we had taken that crucial first step to make that dream come to life.” One of them added, “And after we became EXO, we just felt like we’ve come this much further”.
