Now that EXO’s D.O. has come back from his military service, he’s more ready than ever to showcase his amazing vocal chops in a new self-made solo mini-album entitled “Empathy”.
In preparation for the release of his solo, we get to see a softer side of D.O. in the mood sampler video. And from what we can from the video, the music will have a folksy, RnB feel to it.
Some Filipino EXO-Ls on Twitter also managed to catch a small nod to the Philippines with a staple Filipino product used as a prop in the background! A Filipino EXO-L tweeted that they saw a can of Hot and Spicy Century Tuna in one of the scenes of D.O.’s mood sampler:
HOY CENTURY TUNA HOT AND SPICY NGA YUNG NASA BINTANA HAHAHAHA pic.twitter.com/Z4GkDHfYUi— KV | D.O. Empathy 공감 7/26 (@farmerkyung_soo) July 14, 2021
This isn’t the first time an item from the Philippines is spotted in an EXO video, as one EXO-L tweeted showcasing Chanyeol holding Philippine Pesos in the music video for 1 Billion Views.
PH EXO-Ls are truly feeling the love from EXO and we’re excited for D.O.’s newest solo release!

The mini-album is expected to drop on July 26. If you haven’t gotten the latest EXO merch, you can find it on Fanlife here!
