"Even though his outstanding and glorious dancing has been affirmed within the group, he’s actually a young man with a heart filled with dreams of composing and singing under the spotlight." - The Celebrity

THAT INTERVIEW WAS HELLA BITCHY TO TRANSLATE
i hate articles
everyone please read it though! took me one whole night, more than 1k words ;;;;; but it’s a really really good interview! especially yixing stans, go go! /o\
At the studio, using the guitar to compose whenever inspiration hits him. Lay’s songs are all composed with the help of musical instruments.
Currently in charge of EXO’s glamorous performance, Lay — Even though his outstanding and glorious dancing has been affirmed within the group, he’s actually a young man with a heart filled with dreams of composing and singing under the spotlight. Collaborating with composers, choosing musical instruments, enjoying a short break of relaxation at a music cafe. A day with Lay, who’s fighting towards his dream!
With composer Maxx Song, who hits off well with Lay;
After arriving at the recording studio, Lay immediately used the keyboard to work on his composition with the other composers and proceeded onto the editing stage;
Being able to fully drown himself into the recording mood just by himself
Music exists in those blissful moments
The recording studio that was decided to meet Lay at was filled with beautiful melodies early in the morning. Maxx Song, the leader of Command Freaks who helps Lay with composing, together with composer Ahn Seungchan were already prepared before Lay turned up. They mentioned, “We wrote an impromptu song with Lay awhile back, and agreed to meet up today to learn from each other.”
10 minutes before the photoshoot, Lay personally carried his laptop and appeared at the recording studio…
“Hyung, please listen to this. How is it? Is it okay?”
“Hyung, how do you use this? Can I try?”
Lay didn’t even have the time to put down his stuff before exclaiming that he had inspiration for a melody, and immediately went over to the composers. Lay mentioned that his passion for composing started when he was 10 years old. Up till now, he has over 100 songs composed. However due to the fact that he never professionally learned how to compose music, he humbly expressed that the songs he wrote are all not good enough to be included in albums.
At the dorms, together with fellow EXO members Chen and Chanyeol, they often share their self composed songs with each other and give one another comments about which areas to improve on. Hence, pulling an all nighter became something common.
Maxx Song, who was listening to Lay from the side commented, “Lay has a lot of creativity, he’s very outstanding. He is full of emotions, hence the melodies he compose can touch and relate to people’s hearts.” He also talked about how he was initially worried that Lay would not be able to properly express the emotions and culture of Korea, but if you have listened to Lay’s songs, you will feel no boundaries.
Upon reaching the recording studio, Lay spent more than an hour with the Command Freaks composers playing the guitar and piano, making music. Halfway through, he even playfully played EXO’s songs, and tried to record the song he had been humming from inspiration.
For Lay, in which 24 hours isn’t even enough for the busy him, it seems like the time now is the best healing time to him, and also the most precious memory.
“I have to go to that street today! The guitar I have been wanting to get for so long, today is the day I shall own it!”
my bias everyone
i finally got a copy of the fully translated chinese ver of yixing’s interview for The Celebrity.
it’s so long… T T but i will definitely translate it because it’s one of the best interviews done on him. it’s very personal and reflects a lot of things about him as a musician instead of his role as a main dancer in EXO. it almost feels like he’s just a hipster artiste/musician in this interview instead of an idol boy band member ;; i’m on standby tonight until 7am so i will start translating now and keep my fingers crossed that they don’t activate me for a flight.
meanwhile i have to push back my subbing for his changsha airport fancam, translation for another article and gif’ing him on showtime even more backwards. so sorry T T but i will definitely get everything done slowly
earlier this morning, someone mentioned yixing on weibo to donate and help a 9 years old boy diagnosed with leukemia. within 15 minutes after the mention, yixing made the transaction donation.
however, he didn’t know that this action would be auto posted on weibo by the system, because there isn’t a prompt for donators to choose if they want it to be posted on their accounts.
by the time he found out, his fans and fansites have already started reposting and following what he did, donating money.
he then quietly deleted the post.
he once stated that he didn’t want his fans to donate money for his sake ;__;
in any case, cfans and fansites are all following his footstep and donating money to different diseased kids under the same project.
the cfans hope for this matter to be spread around the international fandom so that the rest of the world can know about what he did ^_^
