EXO's New Album 'Universe' Earns Praise for Gender Neutral Lyrics!

EXO‘s Universe is also…universal!

The album, which includes title track “Universe” and cuts like “Stay,” “Fall” and “Lights Out,” only uses personal pronouns like “me” and “you” without ever mentioning “he” or “she.”

K-Pop fans on social media are taking notice of this trend, and many believe that the decision – whether or not intentionally made by the lyricists – helps to make the songs even more relatable to fans of all kinds.

BTS, Girls' Generation, NCT & More Pay Their Respects Following Kim Jong-Hyun's Death

BTS, Girls’ Generation, NCT and more Korean pop acts are paying their respects after the tragic death of SHINee‘s Kim Jong-Hyun, also known as Jonghyun, who was found collapsed on Monday (December 18).

The entertainers were spotted by news cameras arriving to the late singer’s wake. BoA and EXO also reportedly attended.

The four members of SHINee will reportedly be officiating Jonghyun‘s funeral ceremony in a role called “sang joo” (or “chief mourners”), which is traditionally held by the closest male relatives of the deceased. As Jonghyun did not have male siblings, the boy band is stepping up to act as his brothers.

SM Entertainment has also set up a separate memorial for fans.

“In accordance with his family’s wishes, we have set up a separate location for fans to remember and pay their final respects to Jonghyun, who has created many precious memories together….We ask that you send him warm thoughts, so that Jonghyun, the best artist, may be able to rest peacefully,” the agency announced in a statement on the group’s official message board.
