D.O. is a member of the K-pop band EXO. He was born in January 12 of 1993 in the Gyeonggi Province of South Korea. He debuted on January 30, 2012 in both EXO and its Korean subunit, Exo-K. He has been singing since primary school and performed in various singing competitions before participating in an audition for SM Entertainement in 2010.

Kyungsoo is well known for his love of food and cooking. This hobby is part of many fanworks, examples of which can be found here[4] or here.[5] For this reason, jokes comparing him to Gordon Ramsay are common:

y'all better ship kyungsoo & gordon ramsay


they are made for each other.


I heard from a k-exol that when kyungsoo was 16 he saw a boy crying bc he couldn't cook for his life. Kyungsoo helped the boy learn cooking and showed him all the techniques and basics. that boy was Gordon Ramsey. This is inspiring, thank you do kyungsoo.



Kyungsoo has astigmatism [6], which has caused him to be misunderstood many times as him squinting to see looks like he's glaring. For this reason, fans gave him the nickname "Satansoo". However, this nickname lost its popularity with the fans, as some were concerned it was being used by anti-fans and others generally regarded it as cringy.

yeah i've noticed that some exo fans tell other fans to stop calling kyngsoo satansoo when he makes the funny face and i dont get it. isn't it a pretty harmless nickname

why do some exo fans have a problem with the nickname satansoo

I guess it can get pretty annoying? Since some childish fans just slam "satansoo satansoo XD" whenever he breathes towards the members people assume he hates, especially if he gets caught derping at the same time. Personally, I'm not bothered by it that much, either.

why do some exo fans have a problem with the nickname satansoo

i think it's because people tend to think it pushes the whole kyungsoo is always angry and hates all the members image to non fans especially

personally i don't mind the nickname itself that much, but it's so 2013/2014? i just get the same kinda cringe-y feeling when i see it as when i see people saying still saying yehet everywhere
