Okay, so let’s talk about this calmly. And by calmly, I mean without the high pitched squealing I did the first five times I watched this nor with the body rolls and hyperactive Drake Hands© I did for the next 30 times.
Some background information. Earlier I did a post on Kris (Yi Wufan), highlighting his Mr. 6 trailer (which is still awesomely dope, go watch it). Well, Mr. Lu Han (family name is Lu; his name means deer of the dawn” or “morning deer) is from the same embattled group, EXO, which has had its Chinese members packing up and fleeing to their home counties as if SM Entertainment was in the midst of a war. Luhan followed in the steps of his sub-unit leader Kris’s footsteps, sighting mistreatment from the label. There were also some damming photos, fanaccounts showcasing that Luhan was dangerously unwell and this was largely being ignored by SM.
So, as the saying goes in SM “I’m packing my shit and getting TF out of here!” (Trust me. This is the actual saying.)
Now we have Lu Han who has become, just like his EXO-boat jumping predecessor, an international superstar. I’m talking movie deals, soundtrack deals, shoe, clothing, all’dat. He’s even got a movie coming out in 2016 staring alongside Matt Damon. Andy Lau, and William Dafoe. That’s Jason Bourne, The Heroic Gangster and The Green Goblin, ya’ll. That’s BIG.
But outside of his very impressive campaign to tell SM to kiss his money making ass, Lu Han has evolved in other ways. Mainly…(leans in closer) Lu Han wants us to know he’s a freak.
Full stop. That’s right. For YEARS because of Lu Han’s baby face, people have been calling him everything BUT manly. I mean, he IS really pretty.
Lu Han, he’s most memorable phrase is “I am a man,” has decided to show us. Just that. Most of his lyrics are EMBED with innuendos that make Yonce look like an almost innocent looking into girlish woman hood. Almost.
Baby are you ready for me
Wǒ shì rúcǐ qī pàn
Just Save your breath and take it easy
Ěr biān yǒu wǒ hūxī de yú gǎn
Mind you, this, entitled “DEEP” if that wasn’t sexy enough for you, was for the soundtrack to a children’s cartoon, “Kungfu Panda 3”. Yeah.
Or the opening lyrics to the video above:
Ooh ooh I’m just tryna get you in the mood
Ooh ooh baby just show me what it do
Now blow it like a flute ooh ooh
Christ, Lu Han.
I am now a full fledge Luhan fan. Seriously. Which, in hindsight is hilarious. I didn’t pay much attention to Luhan while he was apart of EXO, other than being apart of the infamous XiuHan ship (his highly clingy “ship” with then bandmate, Minseok.) My attentions were always on Kris and Lay. HOWEVER, ever since he has stepped out, or as he says “Did y’all get the news? This been overdue. Left a while ago and set up shop on the moon,” he has shined, so much you’d be foolish to NOT watch out for him.
Good job, my “deer”. I love it. Keep it up.
Release and now relax,
