EXO-L’s are certainly excited for their upcoming repackage album, but they weren’t very surprised about the title — thanks to all the spoilers EXO gave them.

SM Entertainment has released some key details about the upcoming release.
There will be a Korean and Chinese version released of the track “Love Shot” plus two new songs “Trauma” and “Wait”.
The title song “Love Shot” is a striking pop dance song with an 808 bass and an addicting chorus. EXO members Chen and Chanyeol participated in the lyrics for the track as well!
The lyrics express the feelings of someone who hopes to find the meaning of true love that is slowly being forgotten in a desolate world and stay together.
The physical album will have two versions — a black cover called Love Ver. and the white cover featuring EXO will be called Shot Ver.
EXO-L realized that there might be a “mafia” theme with this new comeback, thanks to all the games of Mafia that EXO played on VLive — just days after the “Tempo” comeback.
So I have a theory based on the mafia game……….exo's repack concept is to rob diamonds? they're the mafias who are going to rob the diamonds & they're going to be chased by the police (like monster era) & someone will be there to help in the form of the doctor role??? pic.twitter.com/L7sxWzTTKg

exo are dressed up like mafia in their album cover but the mv was filmed in a universal art center which looks like a luxurious palace, so…can we get a concept where they’re high class criminals trying to steal the most valuable and biggest diamond of the country

SM Entertainment also released an MV teaser this morning as well, showing off a dangerous concept filled with robbers, roses, and guns — proving EXO-L right.

The teaser didn’t reveal any of the lyrics, but not to worry, because Kai spoiled some of the “addicting chorus” already.
During his live show on Instagram, he could be heard singing something like “It’s a love shot…” followed by a gasp from their manager. To this Kai replied, “they won’t know anyway!” — but nothing can get past EXO-L’s radar.

Later on in the live, you can hear Kai singing “I feel like I can’t breathe, oh oh oh” with his manager laughing exasperatedly at him.
Jongin REALLY gave us the biggest spoiler. The song sounds so good idek what's coming and I'm HYPEEDDDD

As well, during Suho’s first ever Instagram live last night Chanyeol played a few seconds of the title track. Since fans didn’t know that Suho had made an Instagram, there were only a short number of fans watching then…but the Instagram live has been archived on Suho’s page — where he has over 1 million followers already.
