So this has got to be one of the cutest stories I have ever heard in my life, and of course it’s coming from EXO’s Chanyeol.
While he was a guest on Younha’s Starry Night Radio, Chanyeol revealed that he was going to make 100 paper cranes and send them to his girlfriend at the time. He was about 70 paper cranes in when his girlfriend texted him saying that she was breaking up with him.
While still heartbroken, he didn’t want to stop folding the cranes, so he continued on until he finished. He put all 100 paper cranes inside of a bottle.
The conversation went down in this manner:
Chanyeol: I was making paper cranes, so I folded them carefully. I was going to fold 100 paper cranes.
But when I reached about 70 paper cranes, my girlfriend texted me and broke up with me.
I didn’t want to stop folding, so I just finished folding the cranes and put them in a bottle.
Suho: Give it to your next girlfriend.
Chanyeol: I could have, but I didn’t. Back then I placed it on top of the piano. It hurt a lot to look at it.
DJ: It must have reminded you every time you looked at it.
Chanyeol: Yes, I really don’t know why I put it there in the first place…
Suho: You should have given it to your next girlfriend.
DJ: The next girlfriend woudl have been clueless and say, “I’m so touched, Jagiya!”
Chanyeol: I didn’t think about that.
How can you not love this guy. On the same show, Chanyeol said that one of events he did while he was still with his girlfriend happened on rose day. Around the 14th of June (or May), while he was still in middle school, he sent his girlfriend a basket of 20 roses. Now at his age, 20 roses must have cost like…all of his allowance.
He also stated on the same broadcast that he gets hung up on simple things. He doesn’t even delete texts that contain simple messages like “What are you doing?”. He says he likes to keep those simple things for sentimental purposes.
Oh, and apparently he knows how to knit. He learned from his mother and sister.
