I would be so grateful if EXO fans could enlighten me on Luhan‘s appeal. I know he left the group over half a year ago and isn’t a member anymore, but I am genuinely clueless when it comes to what makes this very young man (who looks even younger) so popular. I ask this because Luhan just made the cover of the Forbes China 2015 Celebrity Power List edition, where inside he only ranked #37 but got his face plastered all over the magazine glossy front page. In addition, last month he also made the cover and pages of GQ China, all this happening in so short a time as to be utterly groundbreaking in any entertainment industry.
I’ve only seen him in the C-version of Miss Granny and he was adorable but no acting wunderkind to write home about. The onscreen charisma was what I deem serviceable as well, so I am genuinely curious what his fans think validates his soaring success since returning to China, success that even eclipses his former EXO mate Kris (who is also doing very well himself). With that said, my confusion must be the minority because he’s doing soooooo well after leaving SM and EXO to spread his wings in his native China that clearly the C-fans can’t get enough of him.
