You’ve probably heard of EXO, right? I mean, who hasn’t. Today I will tell you a little bit about the drama “EXO Next Door”. Keep in mind that the story is completely fictional!
“EXO Next Door” is a web series, which was released in 2015. Apart from EXO themselves, we also have Moon Ga Yeong, who plays the role of Ji Yeon Hee. The main EXO members we see in “EXO Next Door” are D.O, Sehun, Chanyeol, and Baekhyun. We also have Kai and Suho with smaller parts, and all the rest appear just a couple of times each.
Ji Yeon Hee is 23 years old and hasn’t really had a boyfriend yet. The reason? Every time she is around a boy, she blushes so hard that her whole face turns red and it’s really hard for her to communicate with boys. One day, however, there are new neighbours moving in next door. Turns out that Yeon Hee will have to face her fears and try to overcome her shyness around boys because she unwillingly becomes their housekeeper.
EXO’s members on the other hand move there, which is in fact Chanyeol’s grandfather’s house, because they need some rest from their activities. On top of that, Chanyeol has to find something precious to him in that house. Of course, the story gets a little bit more twisted than that.
My first impression of the web series was that it’s really funny. For instance, the first time Ji Yeon Hee meets her new neighbours, she takes them to be seriel killers, even though they are only trying to help her. I would really recommend “EXO Next Door”, especially if you are trying to learn EXO’s members. As I already said, only four of the members appear as main characters, so it will be easy to remember them. I’ve found that it’s so much easier to remember group members through dramas. Furthermore, this one is really not time-consuming at all – we only have 16 episodes of about 15 minutes each.
