As one of the legendary boy groups of K-Pop, EXO have many fans within the idol industry, but the biggest EXO-L has to be none other than SF9‘s Yoo Taeyang.
These 13 moments prove that no one loves EXO as much as he does.
1. “Exodus” In 2022
If EXO ever went against Taeyang in a “guess the EXO song” challenge, Taeyang would probably win.
If EXO only has one fan left in this world then it’s gotta be Yoo Taeyang because who else is dancing to Exodus in the year 2022pic.twitter.com/akUAzATldO

2. “Love Shot”
Taeyang was the first idol to cover “Love Shot,” and like the main dancer he is, he absolutely killed it.

With Kai as his bias, it’s only natural that Taeyang would cover his songs.
Sometimes, Yoo Taeyang is faster than EXO at performing their choreography.
Taeyang from Sf9 covered Tempo also before EXO performed it, he was the first to cover love shot and now he is first to cover obsession too even before it's performance release

5. “Don’t Fight The Feeling.”
Though we still have nothing besides the MV from EXO with this song, Taeyang has covered it several times.

6. “Let’s Exchange Photocards.”
Taeyang probably has plenty of Kai’s photocards, but there’s always room for more.
This is so funny. OP told Taeyang that she also likes EXO and has #Kai #Jongin photocard. But for SF9 album she still doesn’t get Taeyang card. Then he picked his polaroid & told her “let’s exchange” (so he could get Jongin card) 🤣 Erigom president indeed 🤣 #카이 #엑소카이 pic.twitter.com/tnv2ALlbAL

7. “Beautiful Goodbye”
You know he’s a true fan when even his casual listening/background music is EXO.

8. EXO First, Everything Else Second.
Yoo Taeyang is truly the president of EXO-Ls.
Someone commented about EXO’s new song. Jaeyoon talked about Taeyang hung up his phone called, Taeyang even set alarm when EXO’s Love Shot released but bcz he had something to do that time, he made streaming list first👏🏻🌞 Yoo Taeyang indeed truly exol😆

11. A Successful Fanboy
Kai knows how big of an EXO-L Taeyang is; thanks to that, he’s been paying special attention to Taeyang’s work.
Jongin signed an album for Taeyang (SF9)
🐻 Hello I'm KAI. I've been watching/monitoring (your work). Thank you very much for always supporting me and liking (me/my work). (I will) always support you too!
I'm watching/enjoying your dance. Thank you ♡ pic.twitter.com/55UncK1awK

When Kai’s third solo album comes out, Taeyang will 100% cover the title track.
13. The Most Successful Fanboy Ever.
One of Taeyang’s biggest dreams came true the day he met Kai in person.
