Beijing Youth “Lu Eighteen”
Lu Han, being born in the 90s, follows closely after G-Dragon in the 2013 Korean Idol Rankings. For his debut experience, you could almost use the phrase “odd” to describe it: He was once a school beau in Beijing Haidian Foreign Language School, and when he came unaccompanied to Korean to study in that year, because his “appearance was too outstanding” while he was shopping in Myeongdong, he was discovered by a talent scout. Since then, he entered Korean’s “Star Factory” SM Company, becoming one of the representative figures of “China-Korean Friendship” in the entertainment world. Lu Han’s popularity is rather high, even when he just debut. His Weibo has nearly 50 million fans. He just has to casually post a Weibo, he would be able to receive hundreds and thousands or even one million replies. On Weibo’s Search List, Lu Han’s ranking would always be high.
During Korean variety shows, generally Lu Han would use “The Little Deer from Early Morning” to introduce himself. His pair of bright eyes compliments with his young looking face. Fans would call him “Lu Eighteen”, to show that he is eighteen years old every year, meaning of eternal youth. Although having delicate appearance and the unique quality of “won’t be adorable for nothing”. But every time when Lu Han records a program and he laughs wholeheartedly without caring about his image, fans would always support their foreheads and say: “Lu Yé, next time when you want to laugh, please take care of the creases on your face, and your jaw is almost dropping off!”
In EXO-M, Lu Han is always deemed as the “Most Gentle Person”. During the period as a trainee, when Zhang Yi Xing, who is in the same group as Lu Han, is exhausted from dance practices, Lu Han would carry him back to the dormitory. This sort of sentimental incident makes fans talk with great enthusiasm. Yet, a group of “corrupted girls” always fixed their sight onto Lu Han and Se Hun (EXO-K’s Group Member). Having their appearance being rather similar, they were even called “Twins”. Lu Han and Se Hun’s brotherly affections always make the fans shout uncontrollably: “Oh my! I can’t take it anymore!”
Lu Han was always low profile, the quality of modesty, has won praises from many celebrities. Last month, Lu Han took part in Park Ji-Sung Asian Dream Cup. Dare to confront the enemy single-handedly, and a record of precise shot, has left a deep impression on the fans. Lu Han’s outstanding football skills, was also thought highly by Fàn Zhì Yì, a senior in the China soccer world. Taking part in the same competition, China’s national player Zhèng Kē Wěi said, in the dressing room, Lu Han almost never talk about his entertainment career, discussions with the team members were all about football. “Lu Han’s humble attitude is really admirable.” Another national player Chén Hán said: “Lu Han is a really good youth.”
