What do you think of sehun's personality after the gaming thing?
First of all, I’m not Oh Sehun nor knowing him personally. I don’t even understand Korean. So everything here is only my thoughts and opinions based on the recording and translation [here].
My personal opinion?
That Oh Sehun is just a normal teenager.
Yes he is EXO’s Sehun the idol, and he shows us the best of him on-stage, on-cam and in public.
But in dorm he’s just Oh Sehun a kid from Seoul. What sasaeng did to him was a total violation of privacy. But how people judged him only based on minutes conversation (in a playing mood situation) is awful.
Yes maybe he said some inconvenient words. He’s so into a game what’s a big deal about it. What I see is how Oh Sehun and Baekhyun refrained themself but said those things anyway then laughed about it. Means they actually ain’t swear a lot irl and seemed awkward about it especially with a ‘noona’ around [here].
And Sehun is definitely a boy with manner coz even after that girl asked him to speak informally to her, still he said “I can’t do it to noona”. Later the sasaeng explained that the girl is a rookie [here], means that Sehun who already debuted is sunbae to her, but still Sehun keeps the manner coz she’s older.
About the ‘Oh Sen’ [here].
Tbh I don’t think Oh Sehun is that shallow. Yes he’s not Yixing who wrote a love song for fans or bows nonstop till the stage is empty. But I don’t think Sehun only see his fans as money maker.
The thing that I love about Sehun is how genuine he is. He shows what he’s thinking, he says what he wants to tell. He wouldn’t say he loves his fans if he ain’t mean it. He wouldn’t show his gratitude if he ain’t really value it.
Maybe Sehun refers “those fans” to “sasaeng fans”. We know how EXO members feel about them. And we know how they abused Oh Sehun and made such a trauma so he prefers to run into van when they’re around, and not too smiley to them.
Or maybe Sehun just wanted to separate his normal life in dorm and his hectic idol life. Not because fans are meaningless to him, but because it makes him more comfy. Nickname from fans means he’s dealing with his idol image, while friends/hyungs in dorm means him as ‘regular’ Oh Sehun.
The way I see it, how he devides us as “fans” means that fans are exclusive in his heart. That we are special.
Not every girl can call him that way. It’s an honour for him to have such a nickname as a love proof from his fans and he treasures it much. That nickname belongs to his fans only.
Because we own his heart.
From the way SM admited that people from the recording was really EXO, means that even SM ain’t consider this as scandal. We know how SM always says official things vaguely when it comes to scandal.
People can misinterpret, so do I. But I don’t want to judge or assume negative things. To me, he’s still the cute playful genuine kid Oh Sehun that I love.
