In a few hours' time, everyone all over the world, regardless of nationality, race or religion, will join hands to send off 2013 and usher in the new year.
2013 has been a very eventful (albeit fruitful) year for EXO and all EXO fans. We've had our fair share of smiles, frowns, tears and all in all, a hell of an emotional roller coaster ride as we watched EXO bloom and blossom over the year. But we've pulled through the tough times, everyone; We pulled through the tough times together :')
It never ceases to amaze me how EXO can bring all of us together and cast aside our differences to be a part of this huge, weird, derpy yet warm and loving fandom. It doesn't matter what colour our skin is because in this fandom, we're all family :') We may come from all walks of life and probably speak a thousand different languages but what we all have in common is something that will forever identify us as one--our endless love for a certain 12 boys from a certain band called EXO.
EXO, X-O, E-X-O. Our pillar of strength, our shoulders to cry on, our reason to smile and our reason to cry.
Dear EXO, if by some miracle in December you guys are reading this, then please know that EXO fans all over the world are very grateful for your existence and we'll continue being grateful for another million years to come.
Thank you for making our bad days so much more bearable and our good ones even better. There's so much more you guys can do to make this world a better place, and we hope that we'll be part of the plan when that time comes!
Besides EXO, there's also a group of people I would love to give another special shout-out to (Hahahah guys, I know y'all are laughing at me for giving y'all all these mushy shout-outs, so stop laughing!!!)
I would like to take this chance to thank the staff at EXOdicted who work tirelessly to keep this fansite up and running. Thank you guys for all the effort you've put into managing this site :') Thank you to (in no particular order) all our authors, writers, editors, stylist staff, graphic designers, photo uploaders, translators, subbers, encoders, volunteers, daebaks and project managers. You guys have been nothing but brilliant <3
Let's work harder in 2014! ^^
Finally, here at EXOdicted, we would like to thank our dear readers, from the bottom of our hearts, for supporting us till now. Y'all might not have noticed, but we've come a long way since 8 April 2012. We couldn't have come this far without the continuous love and support from you guys, really! We want to thank all our readers, new and old for choosing to stay by our side despite there being a lot more bigger and better EXO fansites out there.
Thank you guys for never giving up on us, and please continue to give us your love and support in 2014, 2015, 2016 and the remaining of eternity <3
Likewise, we'll try our very best to provide you guys with the latest information of our 12 aliens at the speed of Baekhyun, and will continue to love you all till the end of Tao. I believe no Suho or Xiumin can ever put out our passion that is burning like Chanyeol. But don't worry if it gets too boring, because once in a while we'll throw in some light-hearted posts to Kai you guys away from all the burdens in your lives. We might not be able to remove them permanently, but we'll be more than glad to Luhan some of that weight off your shoulders and put it on ours. Please enjoy your visit here as we Lay your tired souls and help them gain D.O. When Chen strikes and the Sehun blows, we'll be your shelter and your sanctuary. And when the sun shines bright again, we'll all Kris away hand-in-hand to a better tomorrow, to meet a better EXO.
(Omg do you guys get what I just did?!? If yes, congratulations! We're on the same wavelength!!!!!! :>)
You guys have no idea how much we love you <3
Please continue to place your faith in us and really, let's bring in a better tomorrow...
WE ARE ONE!
Masaya bagong taon!
Selamat tahun baru!
Chúc mừng năm mới!
Glückliches neues Jahr!
¡Feliz año nuevo!
سنة جديدة سعيدة!
새 해 복 많이 받으세요!
(I'm so sorry if I got anything wrong! Google translate tends to be quite...unreliable, haha!!!)
Happy 2014 guys <3
