EXO may have lost the Album of the Year award at the Melon Music Awards, but D.O.‘s compassion won them our hearts.
When EXO didn’t win album of the year at the Melon Music Awards, many EXO-Ls were disappointed and saddened to the point where they had tears in their eyes. Many were seen crying and covering their faces as the camera captured the upsetting moment.

EXO’s D.O. noticed the crying fans and quietly mouthed in Korean, “Uljima”, which translates to “don’t cry”. A Korean EXO-L captured the sweet moment and posted it on her Twitter account. It was then retweeted nearly 3,000 times.
