On May 25, EXO‘s Baekhyun dropped his second solo mini album, Delight, along with a cute and playful music video for its title track, “Candy”.
Baekhyun chose “Candy” as his title track because he wanted to show off his cool dancing skills…
…and because he thought that “Candy” was a great relaxing song that would refresh his fans and make them feel relaxed.
Aside from the EXO members who loved the song and thought it was a good concept for him…
Jongin: I actly watched it (‘Candy’ MV) as soon as it was released but I like the song so much, you know I like my members’ songs a lot & I happened to be free too so..(..) Oh, Baekhyun hyung left a comment too! *reads* It’s alr joy & happiness to me. I’m your fan, your no.1 fan~ pic.twitter.com/hESNhA0SdC

…naturally, Baekhyun’s fans also couldn’t get over how perfect the song is for Baekhyun — he even broke his own record because of this.

6. A new perspective of looking at the lyrics
“I’m your candy 🍭”
The way ‘candy’ isn’t about the girl but Baekhyun is referring it to himself… and the following lyrics ‘mature/adult-like cinnamon, a little funny mint’ is probably describing about him himself too 😭
