EXO‘s Xiumin might not have a “main” position within EXO (he does have two in EXO-CBX), but he is listed as the vocalist, rapper, and lead dancer, which is basically acknowledging his all-rounded talent. Fans and non-fans have recognized Xiumin as the “Ace of EXO,” and these 11 moments prove that Xiumin is a jack of many trades and a master of all.

There’s a reason EXO’s choreographers trust Xiumin with the hardest formation transitions.

3. EXO-CBX’s Main Rapper
EXO-CBX gave EXO-Ls a taste of how versatile each member of EXO can be, and it’s safe to say that main rapper Xiumin has us all wrapped around his finger.

While he can rap alongside Chanyeol and Sehun, his harmonies on top of their raps send chills down our backs.

6. EXO Has No Visual Holes
Xiumin is a thirst trap, and he wields that power mercilessly.

Xiumin once said his strength was that he could be with any member, and he’s 100% right. No matter which main line you group with him, Xiumin seamlessly blends in, so it’s no surprise why he can fill in all their positions perfectly in “Obsession.”

8. Musical Actor Xiumin
The official Broadway account posted about Orpheus Xiumin, so if that’s not a testament to his talent, what is?

He might be the oldest in EXO, but he’s forever EXO’s and EXO-L’s cutie and fake maknae (no, but seriously, how does he not age?).
