EXO‘s Chanyeol with DreamWorks’ character Shrek? Yep, it’s a thing and it’s the latest ship that’s been sweeping the internet, even if nobody is quite sure how to feel about “ShrekYeol”!
Although no one really knows where the latest ship came from or when exactly “ShrekYeol” became a thing, you can find references about it all the way back to 2015. The ship didn’t really set sail, however, until 2017 when a fanmade mashup video made it’s appearance online.
Then the ship suddenly disappeared, until now that is! A second video has been making the rounds online…
