In a unsurprising turn of events, sasaeng fans have stolen the “wish” padlocks that the EXO members placed on Namsan Tower.
You can see EXO writing down their wishes on these padlocks on the episode 7 preview of EXO’s Showtime!
The fans went over to Namsan Tower with padlock cutters and pinpointed the exact location that EXO placed their locks on.
It did help that EXO’s Showtime showed the location on their preview trailer.
For those of you who don’t know, many bridges have special locations where people perform these “wish” rituals.
Most of the time (or at least in my country), it’s couples who participate in these “wish” padlock games. They usually wish for happily-ever-afters and prosperity.
EXO pretty much qualifies as a huge couple because of the members closeness with one another, and because of how many OTPs there are within the group.
It’s unfortunate that sasaeng fans had to steal EXO’s padlocks (and I’m pretty sure that’s a crime), but at least the memories are there. Who knows, maybe the EXO members will write down their wishes on a new padlock, and place them without the fans knowing (but then again, they always know).
